Ricoh may not be the most successful digital camera brand but it still manages to come out with camera models that have enough features to spark some interest among digital photography enthusiasts. Take the case of its newly launched digital camera called the Ricoh R10. This ultra-compact point-and-shoot not only touts of a 10.1-megapixel CCD sensor but a 28mm lens with 7x optical zoom as well.
Aside from these the Ricoh R10 also features the Smooth Image Engine III processing technology, an above average ISO sensitivity of 80-1600, a 3-inch HVGA LCD screen, 54MB internal memory plus an SD/SDHC slot for storage expansion. In addition to capturing good quality still images, the R10 can also capture 640×480 pixel video at 30fps.
The Ricoh R10 seems to be a good successor to the previously released R8 digital camera. There will be three color variants of the R10 digital camera which will all be available in Japan on Sept 5, 2008 and it will have a retail price of around $439.
