Caplio GX100 wins Best Prestige Camera in Europe 2007 at TIPA Awards 2007, Europe's most prestigious photo and imaging awards
Tokyo, Japan - May 2 - Caplio GX100 high-resolution compact camera released by Ricoh Co., Ltd. in April 2007 has been named Best Prestige Camera in Europe 2007 at the TIPA Awards 2007. The winners of these photo and imaging awards are chosen by the Technical Image Press Association (TIPA), an organization made up of European camera and video magazines.
The following aspects of the Caplio GX100 were highly evaluated, earning the camera this award.
The Ricoh Caplio GX100 is one of the very few digital compact cameras with a true wide-angle zoom lens, starting at 24mm (35mm film equivalent). The optional wide conversion lens enables users to shoot 19mm ultra wide-angle photography. The Caplio GX100 is also to support a removable electronic viewfinder. This option is great for photography in bright, outdoor environments, while still offering 100% viewfinder coverage without parallax error and multi information display similar to a LCD monitor.
TIPA is an organization of photo and imaging magazines that focus on technology and quality as well as innovative products. It currently has 31 member magazines in 12 countries in Europe.
The TIPA Awards recognize the best products in individual categories in the photo/imaging field. These awards were inaugurated in 1991, and are today recognized as Europe's most prestigious awards of their kind.
This marks the fourth time that Ricoh has been recognized at the TIPA Awards. The last time was in 2006, when the Ricoh GR DIGITAL won Best Prestige Camera in Europe 2006.
