Marketing Information

The imaging philosophy that lies at the root of all Ricoh digital cameras: not just "high image quality" but "pure image quality, true to what is perceived by the naked eye." This is achieved through three core technologies-a low-distortion lens with true-to-life imaging properties, an image sensor with superior high-sensitivity performance, and an imaging engine that reproduces images in minute detail-that have been designed and developed as a single mechanism, offering unsurpassed resolution and faithful, unaffected color reproduction.
