Ricoh has unveiled a digital SLR camera that it believes is ideal for withstanding the elements while taking photographs outdoors. The 24.24-megapixel Pentax K-70 DSLR is an all-weather camera that can work at temperatures as low as -10C (14F), with its rugged dust-proof and weather-resistant casing said to make it ideal for outdoor shooting during activities, such as mountain climbing or while camping in a forest.
Ricoh has revealed a follow-up to the WG-M1 action camera it launched two years ago, a camera that is capable of recording video at a 4K resolution at 30fps. The upgraded WG-M2 can capture footage at the high resolution, as well as 1080p video at 60fps or 720p at up to 120fps, with the device also offering seven video effect modes, on-camera editing, and a lens that provides an extremely wide field of view of 204 degrees.
Ricoh has unveiled what will become Pentax's first full-frame DSLR camera release, when it starts shipping in the United States in April. The Pentax K-1 houses a 36.4-megapixel 35mm-format CMOS sensor combined with a 14-bit RAW-capable Prime IV imaging engine, which also includes a five-axis shake reduction system and an AA filter simulator that uses microscopic vibrations to provide the same level of moire reduction as a normal optical AA filter.
Ricoh today introduced a new compact black-and-white LED printer that brings paper handling up to 11x17 inches to small businesses and enterprise. The new Ricoh SP 6430DN printer produces up to 38 pages per minute using Ricoh's new LED imaging technology, which delivers 1200x1200 dpi resolution.
Ricoh has updated its GR line of digital cameras with the GR II. The new revision brings Wi-Fi and Near-Field Communications (NFC) to the line. Also updated is a new 16-megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor, with no optical low-pass filter and an advanced auto-focus system, with lock times as quick as 0.2 seconds.
Ricoh has announced a collection of new projectors aimed at business and education markets, with some upgrading a number of existing project models. The group of seven projecting devices include Desk Edge, Short Throw and standard models, designed to be capable of displaying an image on a screen or surface at a variety of distances, and incorporate advanced functions including Wi-Fi and Miracast functionality.
Ricoh has launched an updated version of its Pentax K-3 digital SLR from late 2013, improving a few elements while keeping the rest the same. Just like the original, the Pentax K-3 II has a 24-megapixel APS-C sensor, but this time Ricoh has introduced a Pixel Shift Resolution system, which uses the camera's shake reduction mechanism to move the sensor in single-pixel increments and capturing four images, combinable into one higher resolution photograph.
Ricoh has launched a set of three monochrome laser printers in the United States. The SP 213SNw and SP 213SFNw multifunction printers and the SP 213Nw printer all offer print speeds of up to 23 pages per minute, a low 10-second wait for the first print, minimal warm-up times, and a number of different connectivity and networking options.
Ricoh has added another pair of cameras to its ruggedized outdoor snapper range. The WG-30 and WG-30W are compact 16-megapixel cameras designed for use outdoors in extreme activities, with the pair able to survive submergence to a depth of 12 meters (39.3 feet), environments as cold as -10C (14F), withstand drops from a height of 1.5 meters (4.9 feet), and being crushed by up to 220 pounds in weight.
Ricoh's Pentax K-camera collection has been joined by a new mid-class camera. The Pentax K-S1 is a DSLR with a 20-megapixel CMOS sensor combined with the Prime MII imaging engine, giving it a maximum sensitivity of ISO 51,200, a top shutter speed of 1/6000 of a second, and a continuous shooting rate of up to 5.4 frames per second.
