Ricoh recently announced the new Caplio RR770 digital camera. As the name suggests, it is equipped with a 7.1 megapixel 1/2.5-inch primary color CCD and the lens is a 5.8mm-17.4mm (equivalent to 34-102mm for 35mm cameras). It features a 3x optical zoom plus 4x digital zoom. With a shutter speed of 1/2000 seconds for still images, it's a neat little camera to have. On the back, you will find a 3.0 inch TFT-LCD offering 230,000 pixel resolution.
The camera runs on AA-size alkaline or Ni-MH batteries. Measuring 94.5mm x 60mm x 29.1mm, the Ricoh Caplio RR770 weighs in at 140.8 grams. It takes in SD memory cards, and comes with 32MB of internal memory. For amateur photographers, it offers Auto, Program, Portrait, Landscape, Sports and Night shooting modes for still images. It can also capture video (320x240 pixels resolution at 30 frames/second). The macro mode is useful for close-range photography up to 5 cm from the subject.
Bundled accessories include USB cable, AV cable, a camera pouch, hand strap and batteries as well.
