Product Specifications

The Caplio R40's ultra-high-speed response keeps you ready for action. Powering up takes 1.1 seconds, shutter release time lag is approximately 0.09 seconds (without focus lock engaged), and your camera resets for the next shot in half a second. Set your lens to its widest angle and you can shoot as close as 1cm away from your subject! For an even more powerful perspective, use telemacro up to 8cm away. Using the four direction buttons in AF Target Selection, you can also shift the focus point without moving your camera.
