RicohRicoh Caplio R1 digital camera introduction : The Ricoh Caplio R1 is a powerful 4.0 Megapixel digital camera featuring an innovative lens retracting system that allows an incredible 4.8x optical zoom lens with 28mm wide-angle shooting capability to be stored in a 25mm super slim aluminium body. The 28mm wide-angle 4.8x optical zoom lens produces the finest quality images that compact digital cameras in this class can offer. The Caplio R1 features the world's fastest shutter response and Ricoh's outstanding 1cm wide macro technology. The Caplio R1 incorporates all the latest high-end features of the digital camera to satisfy even the most discerning professional, whilst offering user-friendly functionality.
Ricoh Caplio R1 digital camera introductionRicoh Caplio R1 - Wide-angle lens
The Caplio R1's 28mm wide-angle lens is a truly versatile feature that adds to the fun and excitement of photography. It is ideal for capturing the beauty of expansive landscapes and fitting in a large number of people in a group photo without having to take the picture from a far distance. In limited spaces where the subject is apt to fill up most of the image sans background, the Ricoh Caplio R1's wide-angle lens provides the scope to include more background. With an incredible 75-degree angle of view, it can preserve a surprising amount of scenery (and people!) on a single image, far more than with just 62 degrees offered by conventional 35mm digital cameras. The applications and advantages of the 28mm wide-angle lens are boundless.

Ricoh Caplio R1 - 4.8x wide-angle optical zoom
Underlying Caplio R1's stunning picture-taking abilities is its unique lens design incorporating a retracting system that allows a part of the lens group to slide out from the cone and become thin enough to store in the compact body. The development of this amazing mechanism was the key in achieving a powerful 4.8x wide-angle optical zoom lens (equivalent to a 28-135mm telephoto lens on a regular 35mm camera) in a body as thin as 25mm. Coupled with a 3.4x digital zoom lens for an outstanding 12.2x zoom, distant objects are brought ever closer to the camera, while a superior lens structure featuring eight lenses placed in eight groups effectively controls and balances wide-angle zooming operations to obtain clearer images than ever before. A superb 4.0 megapixel CCD and the "smooth imaging engine," Ricoh's unique image processor, ensure sharp, rich colours and clean high-quality images even in large printed formats.

Ricoh Caplio R1 - Shutter response time
Because picture-perfect moments are too precious to miss, Ricoh has relentlessly pursued the world's fastest shutter response time. Incredibly, the Ricoh R1 can start up and be ready to shoot in less than 0.8 seconds. Moreover, the release time is almost instantaneous, as short as 0.05 to 0.1 seconds calculated from the time the user presses the shutter button, and a miraculous 0.003 seconds or less from the time when focus lock is achieved, so the Ricoh Caplio R1 is highly unlikely to miss those exquisite picture-perfect moments. A hybrid auto focusing system also ensures quality images of fast-moving objects. Furthermore, with a shooting interval of 0.9 seconds or less, continuous shooting is smooth and stress-free.

Ricoh Caplio R1 - 1cm macro mode
Be it the smallest detail of a flower petal or the intricate pattern of a butterfly's wings, Ricoh's impressive 1cm macro technology is designed to take close-up shots from a distance of just 1cm. Combined with the 28mm wide macro, the Ricoh Caplio R1 can take macro shots that include more background or add more depth to an image. The AF target shift function conveniently allows the user to pan around the image and locate the desired focus point without moving the camera, and is especially handy when using a tripod. Additionally, in telemacro mode, a built-in flash highlights objects as close as 13cm while protecting against any unwanted whiteout effects to ensure sharp, clear macro shots. The Ricoh Caplio R1 and a little creativity are all it takes to produce professional-looking macro images.

Ricoh Caplio R1 - Battery
The Ricoh R1 effectively puts an end to digital camera battery problems. No more missing precious photo opportunities while recharging batteries or when running out of batteries without a backup at hand. In addition to the long-life lithium ion rechargeable battery (optional) and the AC adapter (optional), the Ricoh Caplio R1 features the unique ability to switch to widely available AA size alkaline batteries or nickel metal hydride batteries when the occasion demands it. The Ricoh Caplio R1 can shoot as many as 500 images between recharges when using the lithium ion rechargeable battery, and up to 200 images when using AA alkaline batteries. The Ricoh Caplio R1 will be available in retail from September priced at £199.99.
