Product Specifications

Whether you're an experienced photographer or you've never used a digital camera before, Ricoh technology opens up a new world of digital creativity. Explore! For digital artists and DTP professionals, RDC-4300's quality means great printouts. For commercial printing applications, the quality you capture meets the most demanding standards. RDC-4300's superlative detail means that even intricate images can be precisely captured. Each high-resolution picture becomes a precision tool for communication. Better input means better output with regular printers, too. If it's a digital image, it's a snap to post on a website, or to send with an e-mail for business or for pleasure. The high quality of the RDC-4300 begins with the Ricoh zoom lens assembly, consisting of 9 glass elements in 9 groups, including 2 aspherical lenses. Excellent distortion correction performance makes it possible to achieve extremely fine 200-line/mm resolution for crisp, colorful photographs. What's more, a multi step focusing process delivers precise subject capture. Your photographs are clean and clear. Capturing good images digitally doesn't stop with a quality Ricoh lens; advanced analog-digital conversion techniques are required as well. Years of experience with digital cameras have helped Ricoh to develop an A-D conversion algorithm that takes a subject's analog image information and constructs a digital picture from it with colors that faithfully reproduce the source. The camera's Macro mode, the high-quality Ricoh lens, and the sensitive CCD work together to help you clearly focus on objects as close as 8 cm (a minimum surface area of 30mm by 22.5mm) without using a close-up adapter. You enjoy the same crisp level of definition that you capture with regular-distance shots. Advanced Ricoh features don't stop at taking great pictures. With RDC-4300, you can record up to eight seconds of sound data along with the pictures you take. Or, choose to record audio only, to capture sounds for later editing. The camera features a fast image-capture system that feeds even moving subject information to the built-in monitor with minimal blurring. The 2-inch low-temperature polysilicon LCD is easy to see, even when ambient light is strong. Of course, accurately composing your photography is simple: the shots you take are identical to what you see on screen. Reviewing your work is easy, too. Use the convenient multi-image playback function to look at 9 shots at a time. What's more, if you're reviewing shots you've taken in professional quality mode, you can choose one of the images to blow up to full screen size, or use the zoom playback feature to look at individual shots at 2x magnification!
