Ricoh Caplio just announced their new R40 digital camera. This 6 megapixel followup to their 5 megapixel R30
features a 5.7x optical wide zoom (28-160mm 35mm equiv) double retracting lens, 2.5-inch LCD, 350 shot battery, and virtually non-existant 0.09 second shutter lag. Sure, it lacks the image stabilization of their R3
and your images stored to SD will crawl when transferred over that USB 1.1 connector but hey, this is their budget lineup so we'll cut 'em some slack until we see a price. Available this June in your choice of colors, as long as you like black.
