RicohRicoh Caplio R1V digital camera introduction : Ricoh announces the launch of the Caplio R1V 5.0 megapixel digital camera, the successor to the award winning Ricoh Caplio R1. The Ricoh R1V digital camera features the innovative lens retracting system that enables an amazing 4.8x optical zoom lens with 28mm wide-angle shooting capacity housed in a 25mm ultra slim, aluminum body. The lens generates the finest quality images capable of being offered by this class of compact digital cameras. Moreover, with extremely fast shutter response and Ricoh's exceptional 1cm wide macro technology, the Ricoh Caplio R1V incorporates all the latest high-end features to satisfy even the most discerning professional.

Ricoh Caplio R1V - Wide-angle lens
The versatility of the Caplio R1V's 28mm wide-angle lens makes taking photos even more exciting and enjoyable. The lens is perfectly suited to capturing the beauty of wide open landscapes. A large number of people can also fit into group photos without the photographer standing back an unreasonable distance. And, when space is limited and the subject would normally fill up the viewfinder and obscure the background, the Caplio R1V's wide-angle lens has the scope to incorporate the background into the shot. Its 75-degree angle of view enables near-panoramic swaths of scenery to be included on a single image, far more than is possible with the 62 degrees offered by conventional 35mm digital cameras. The applications and advantages of the 28mm wide-angle lens are innumerable.

Ricoh Caplio R1V - Wide-angle optical zoom lens
Underlying Caplio R1V's stunning picture-taking abilities is its unique lens design, which incorporates a retracting system that allows a part of the lens group to slide out from the cone and become thin enough to fit in the compact body. This amazing innovative mechanism is the key in achieving the powerful 4.8x wide-angle optical zoom lens (equivalent to a 28-135mm telephoto lens on a regular 35mm camera) to be encased in a body as thin as 25mm. Coupled with a 3.6x digital zoom lens for an outstanding 17.3x zoom, distant objects seem startlingly close. A superior lens structure, featuring nine glass elements placed in seven groups, effectively controls and balances wide-angle zooming for clearer images than ever before. And, a superb 5.0 megapixel CCD and the “smooth imaging engine,” Ricoh's unique image processor, ensure sharp, rich colors and clean high-quality images, even in large print formats.

Ricoh Caplio R1V - Shutter response time
Because picture-perfect moments are too precious to miss, Ricoh has relentlessly pursued the world's fastest shutter response time. Incredibly, it takes only less than 0.8 seconds for the Ricoh Caplio R1V to be ready to shoot photos after it is turned on. 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 the focus is locked. This assures that the Caplio R1V will be ready when an exquisite picture-perfect moment presents itself. A hybrid auto focusing system also ensures the camera to capture 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 R1V - 1cm macro technology
Whether the smallest detail of a flower petal or the intricate pattern of a butterfly's wings, Ricoh's impressive 1cm macro technology facilitates close-up shots from a distance of just 1cm. Combined with the 28mm wide macro, the Caplio R1V incorporates more background or depth into macro shots. The AF target shift function conveniently enables the user to pan around the image and locate the desired focus point without moving the camera. This feature is especially handy when using a tripod. Additionally, in telemacro mode, a built-in flash illuminates objects as close as 13cm while negating whiteout effects, ensuring vivid, clear macro shots. The Ricoh Caplio R1V and a little creativity are all it takes to produce professional-looking macro images.

Ricoh Caplio R1V - Battery
The Ricoh Caplio R1V virtually guarantees an end to missed photo opportunities due to recharging or running out of batteries and backups. In addition to the long-life lithium ion rechargeable battery (optional) and the AC adapter (optional), the Ricoh Caplio R1V features the unique ability to switch to widely-available AA size alkaline batteries or nickel metal hydride batteries. It can shoot as many as 490 images between recharges when using the lithium ion battery, and up to 200 images when using AA alkaline batteries.
