Dropping the Caplio monicker, Ricoh has introduced the R8 compact digital camera featuring 10 megapixels to update the previous 8-megapixel Ricoh Caplio R7.
The new R8 retains the R7â€™s 7.1x optical zoom (28-200 mm equivalent), Smooth Imaging EngineIII image processing engine and 2.7-inch display screen, but offers a complete redesign of the body. Ricoh says the new model combines ease of use and technical specification in a body that is contemporary and stylish.
The Ricoh R8 is due to ship in March with a rather steep $460 price tag.
