When Ricoh makes a camera, they take their efforts seriously. Instead of just releasing a digital camera that takes photos, with all those other features that people expect, they go all out in the GPS functions, as well as barcode reading areas. While some individuals out there may enjoy a camera of this nature, it seems that Ricoh has positioned the G700SE as a photo-taker for specific markets, like governments and police departments.
Ricoh have outed a new digital camera in time for PMA 2010, the Ricoh CX3. The 10-megapixel CX3 may not be overspilling with pixels, but it does use a back illuminated CMOS sensor which adds up to reduced noise in the end-image. There's also a 10.7x optical zoom - equivalent to 28-300mm - and a 3-inch LCD preview display, as well as 720p HD video recording.
Ricoh Japan have announced their latest digital camera, the CX2, an update of the CX1 launched back in February. While the sensor may stay the same - a 9.29-megapixel CMOS - it's now paired with a bigger, 10.7x optical zoom (up from 7.1x) along with a boost in burst shooting, now at 5fps rather than 4fps.
Ricoh have updated their GR Digital II camera with a third-generation model, the unsurprisingly titled GR Digital III. Packing a new wide-angle 28mm F1.9 GR lens, the GR Digital III has a 10-megapixel CCD and Ricoh's GR Engine III image processor. Together they promise the lowest ever ISO sensitivity of a GR-series digital camera, plus minimal color aberration thanks to three special low-dispersion lenses.
Ricoh has today introduced the CX1 digicam that sports a 9-megapixel CMOS sensor, 3-inch LCD with 920,000 dot-pixel and a 7.1x (28-200mm, 35mm equiv.) zoom lens. The new compact camera isn’t the typical Ricoh’s roster you would normal find from the shelf, it shoots up to 120fps high-speed images, continuously, and has the ability to perform an in-camera HDR.
Ricoh have announced their latest digital camera, the 10.1-megapixel R10. Featuring a solid metal casing with with pleasantly retro styling, the R10 has a 7.1x optical zoom, a 3-inch HVGA LCD display and ISO sensitivity of 80-1600.
The Ricoh pro-series GR Digital II and GX100 digital compact cameras get an update with Ricoh’s Creative Sets. The bundle consists of a 0.75x wide angle converter, lens hood with adapter, external viewfinder and a leather camera case to use with attached viewfinder and neck strap. The Ricoh Creative Set will be available at the end of this month with price to be announced.
Ricoh Japan unveiled two new 10 megapixel digital camera with the announcement of Caplio R8 and R50.
Ricoh showed off a new printer to me this week from it’s new Aficio SP C222DN series. It’s a color laser printer and I while I’ve never used a Ricoh printer, I do use a Ricoh copier and it’s amazing and it gives a perfectly clear image everytime. I, personally, have never had any trouble with Ricoh products.
Amen to Ricoh. There have been wirelessly-enabled cameras before, but never one as comprehensively equipped as their new 500SE. We're talking Bluetooth, WiFi and GPS for geotagging, along with an 8-megapixel lens and automatic geotagging of video and still images. Great stuff, eh? And then they go and whack it all into a casing that looks like this:
Seriously, guys, no no no.
