Feature #1 : High Quality, All the Time
16-million–pixel CCD image sensor beautifully renders any subject.
With its 16-million–pixel CCD sensor and Smooth Imaging IV image processing engine, the RICOH PX can reproduce any scene in high resolution. Noise reduction reduces noise for clear results even in night shots.
Image-sensor–shift image stabilization reduces blur.
Image-sensor–shift image stabilization reduces blur for crisp, clear photos at high zoom ratios or when lighting is poor.
5× optical zoom makes great results easy at wide angles and in telephoto shots.
Use super resolution (SR) zoom for an effect equivalent to 10× optical zoom.
5× (28–140 mm) optical zoom can capture objects close up, at long range, or anywhere in between. Add to this SR digital zoom based on super resolution technology that can achieve results equivalent to 10× optical zoom or a lens with a focal length of 280 mm with almost no drop in image quality. Telephoto photography at zoom ratios equivalent to up 1,344 mm are available with digital zoom, allowing you to photograph worlds invisible to the naked eye.
Wide angle: 28 mm
5× optical zoom:140 mm
SR digital zoom: 280 mm
Automatically crop and resize images with auto resize zoom.
Auto resize zoom shows its strength in telephoto shots of distant subjects. Zoom in up to 36× (equivalent to a focal length of 1,000 mm*). Image quality is assured by recording only the portion of the image that contains your subject. Auto resize zoom is made even more effective by the high-resolution, 16-million–pixel image sensor.
- * Camera records VGA crop (640 × 480 pixels).
- * Auto resize zoom is available only when 16 M 4 : 3 is selected for Picture Quality/Size.
Four-pixel interpolation captures night scenes in beautiful detail.
Four-pixel interpolation raises sensitivity while reducing noise, keeping blur to a minimum for beautiful shots of night scenery.*
- * Available when Hand-Held Night Scn is selected in premium mode.
Neighboring pixels are interpolated to increase sensitivity by four times for higher resolution and reduced noise even at high sensitivities.
The dedication to image quality behind all RICOH digital cameras is more than just a commitment to high image resolution: it is a commitment to "pure" image quality faithful to what the eye sees. The RICOH PX, while true to this tradition, makes it even easier to enjoy the possibilities "pure" image quality has to offer.
