Ricoh Caplio RR750
Ricoh has joined in the series of camera launches this week with the introduction of the Caplio RR750, a straightforward 7.1-megapixel camera for beginners and travelers. The point-and-shoot model receives six scene presets placed directly on the mode dial as well as improved ISO sensitivity for darker or faster-paced shots. It also carries 32MB of built-in flash memory that provides free space for owners who misplace an SD memory card.
The RR750 replaces the outgoing RR730 and supplements its improved processing with added battery life and a stronger flash light that reduces the chances of poorly-lit subjects. It runs on AA batteries handy for vacationers that may need replacements, and should be available soon in the US as well as Ricoh's home territory of Japan, though prices for either area are unlisted.
