T'is the season for new cameras, and Japan's Ricoh is getting in on the fun with the launch of its latest R-series Caplio, the R6. An evolutionary as opposed to revolutionary enhancement to the R5, the R6 offers the same 7.24 megapixel CCD, 7.1x optical zoom, and vibration correction as its predecessor, but throws down a slightly larger display (2.7 inches versus 2.5 inches), redesigned, slimmer body, the new hotness of face detection technology, and perhaps most exciting of all, a "distinctive strap attachment." Other nice features include VGA video at 30fps, maximum ISO of 1600, SDHC support, and a long-life battery that promises 330 shots under whatever weird conditions they test these sort of things. Available now, the R6 is priced at £230 including VAT, so figure us non-Brits will be shelling out somewhere in the neighborhood of $370.
