Ricoh Caplio R5 Camera

Smaller camera manufacturers are also announcing new models this Thursday in preparation for the Photokina expo. Ricoh today sends word of its new Caplio R5 point-and-shoot camera, an update to the prior R4. Though it offers the increasingly common blend of a 7.2 megapixel sensor and 2.5-inch LCD, the new Caplio stands out courtesy of unique optics. It boasts a 28-200mm wide-angle lens with an impressive 7.1X optical zoom, eliminating some of the traditional barriers to quality photos in compact cameras. The R5 can also achieve ISO 1600 sensitivity at full resolution and has image stabilization to help with difficult shots. Neither a price or release date has been set, though it will likely arrive in stores this Fall. A full photo of the camera in an optional red shell is available after the jump.
