Ricoh Caplio CX5 announcement clippings

The newly developed CX5 digital camera is equipped with a wide-angle, high magnification 10.7× optical zoom (28–300 mm) lens, which has a higher autofocus speed due to the use of Ricoh's new hybrid AF system. AF focusing times are decreased to as low as 0.2 sec. for both wide-angle 28 mm and telephoto 300 mm, up to half as short compared to the CX4. This ensures that you reliably capture the image you were waiting for, never to miss another good shot again.

Using super-resolution technology, the CX5 also allows recording of images with improved resolution using the "Super-resolution" setting and telephoto shooting at up to 600 mm equivalent with minimal degradation in image quality using "Super-resolution Zoom."
