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.
The new Caplio R5 digital camera features a 7.1x optical wide zoon lens, CCD-shift image stabilization and a broad new image-processing engine. The new Smooth Imaging Engine II should reduce noise, improve performance, and yield a higher sensitivity of ISO1600 at full resolution. There’s also the standard 2.5-inch LCD display, improved battery life VGA 30fps video recording at 640x480 resolution, and vibration correction function that should improve the quality of the images. There’s no support for SDHC. The Caplio R5 is only available in Japan for $350.
