Ricoh has announced the Ricoh R10. The 10 megapixel camera is a follow-up to the Ricoh R8. Thereâ€™s no word yet on a release date and pricing for the US, but that doesnâ€™t mean we canâ€™t take a look.
Hereâ€™s a look at some of the basic specs for the Ricoh R10:
Optical wide-angle zoom
The Ricoh R10 has a 7.1x optical zoom lens. The cameras step zoom function allows you to fix the focal length of your optical zoom at seven steps (28mm, 35mm,50mm,85mm, 105mm, 135mm, and 200mm).
The Ricoh R10â€™s macro mode makes it easy to take pictures of items up close. The camera can put items in focus as close as 1cm for wide angle and 25cm for telephoto shots
The Ricoh R10 has a level indicator to help ensure youâ€™re taking a picture that is actually level. Ricoh suggests using the function for landscape shots, but it could be useful even when youâ€™re taking group shots to make sure your camera is straight.
Ricohâ€™s CCD-shift image stabilizer corrects the blurring that can occur from hand motion when youâ€™re taking photographs with the telephoto or macro functions on the camera. The CCD automatically shifts when blurring is detected in a shot to compensate for the blur.
In-camera image editing
The Ricoh R10 has in-camera picture editing, so you can do things like trim pictures or straighten pictures you might have taken at an angle. One feature Iâ€™m pretty excited about in the in-camera image editing is the ability to adjust the white balance of your photographs after the photos have already been taken.
The Ricoh R10 is expected to be released in black, silver, and bronze. Experts predict the price tag for the camera will be around $400.
