Ricoh Caplio RZ1 announcement clippings


A superb 4.0 megapixel CCD and the "smooth imaging engine,” Ricoh's unique image processor, ensure sharp, rich colors and clean high-quality images even in large printed formats. This outstanding processor also shortens image processing speed and contributes to power-saving.

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. The AF target shift function conveniently allows the user to pan around the image and locate the desired focus point with the operation of a button instead of moving the camera. This is especially helpful when using a tripod. With a little creativity, almost anyone can create professional-looking macro images with the Caplio RZ1. In telemacro mode, a built-in flash for shots as close as 16cm highlights objects while protecting against any unwanted whiteout effects to ensure sharp, clear macro shots.

The Caplio RZ1 offers greater power efficiency and reliability with three power source options. No more missing precious photo opportunities while recharging batteries or when running out of batteries without a backup on hand. In addition to the long-life lithium ion rechargeable battery (optional) or the AC adapter (optional), the Caplio RZ1 features the unique ability to switch to AA size alkaline batteries or nickel metal hydride batteries that are widely available in stores when the occasion demands it. The Caplio RZ1 can shoot as many as 500 images between recharges when using the lithium ion rechargeable battery, and up to 300 images when using AA alkaline batteries.
