Ricoh Caplio GX announcement clippings

The Caplio GX debut marks a significant achievement in Ricoh's long, dedicated history of manufacturing superior optical devices that began in 1938.  To fully appreciate the significance of the Caplio GX launch, one must look to the year 1998 when Ricoh took the world by storm with the unveiling of the Ricoh GR1, an automatic high-performance 28mm compact camera that became an instant sensation winning numerous awards such as the TIPA (Technical Image Press Association) Best Compact Camera of the Year.  
The Caplio GX combines the traditional craftsmanship expertise of the GR series with further enhanced high-performance technology found in the Caplio RX digital camera that was just released in March 2004.
The list of attractions for the Caplio GX begin with its marvelous 5.13 effective megapixel CCD and large 3x optical plus 4x digital lens structure that includes a unique configuration of 9 glass elements in 7 groups producing exquisite images of up to 2592 x 1944 pixels, large enough to print A3-size high resolution photos.
