Ricoh Company Ltd. today launched the new 7.24-megapixel Caplio R6 digital camera featuring a 7.1x optical wide zoom lens (28â€“200 mm in 35 mm camera format) packed into a slim body just 20.6 mm at its thinnest point.
The new Caplio R6 is equipped with true CCD sensor-shift vibration correction system that eliminates blur due to camera shake. It also features a face recognition mode that automatically recognizes the subjectâ€™s face or faces and records the image at the optimal settings.
The new camera sports a larger 2.7-inch LCD screen with a high viewing angle. It also has a curious but innovative Skew Correction function that detects trapezoids in images based on composition when shooting and corrects them to rectangles; images can be corrected to look as though they were shot from the front.
The function is purportedly effective in business environments where subjects such as blackboards, overhead projector images, time schedules, and signs cannot be shot from the front.
