Product Specifications

The Ricoh RDC-5000 delivers superb, high-resolution performance in a camera body that's compact, lightweight and easy to handle. The RDC-5000 features Ricoh's brand new professional-quality 2.3 million-pixel CCD camera. Working together with a precision RGB filter, it enables you to capture subjects with exacting detail and brilliant color contrast. Since the resolution is almost two times higher than an ordinary mega-pixel digital camera, you get crystal-clear shots that were previously only possible with high-end and high-priced digital cameras. It also features Data Copy Mode (Internal -External)/Digital Zoom (VGA).
