28 - 200mm wide-angle optical 7.1x zoom lens
Ricohs cutting-edge Double Retracting Lens System has enabled a 28 - 200mm wide-angle, optical 7.1x zoom lens to fit perfectly in a compact body just 22.6mm thick (at the thinnest part). It is also equipped with a mechanism to switch between two zooming speeds with a single turn of the lever.
10 million effective pixels, 1/2.3 CCD
With its 10 effective megapixel 1/2.3 CCD, the R8 offers highly precise power to express every detail vividly. Paired with the high-performance SIE III image processor, you can capture the smallest of detail.
High sensitivity photography in any situation
Excellent image quality is delivered by Ricoh's digital technology, the Smooth Imaging Engine III. It clears noise from the image signals without compromising resolution. In combination with its advanced image processing, gradation and colour tone adjustments, it delivers colour reproduction to achieve delicate and natural expressions even in high ISO shooting environments.
High-definition 2.7-inch, 460,000-pixel LCD
The R8 is equipped with a wide-view, high-contrast 2.7-inch, 460,000-pixel LCD that offers excellent viewing even under strong sunlight. Images appear clear and sharp to the finest detail. You can easily identify the small images in the 20-frame Thumbnail Display - useful in playing back images.
The R8 allows you to shoot your subject from just 1cm away with the lens at its widest angle, or draw back to telemacro and still get as close as 25cm.
AF/AE Target Selection
Whether you are taking a picture in normal shooting mode or macro shooting mode, this function allows you to shift the target for both auto focus (AF) and/or automatic exposure (AE) without having to move the camera. This is particularly useful when you are fixing the camera on a tripod.
