Ricoh 24-72mm overview

  • 1Description

More than a lens, the Ricoh Lens S10 24-72mm f/2.5-4.4VC Camera Unit 2 is, as the name implies, a completely self-contained camera. When combined with the Ricoh GXR System body the S10 is ready, willing, and able to help you create stunning images with 10Mp of resolution, a 1/1.7" CCD sensor, and multiple features and functions that keep your creative side satisfied.

The Camera Unit promises all this and no dust in the lens or sensor, thanks to the enclosed design. Unlike other digital cameras out there that require you to switch out lenses when you want to change up your point of view, the S10 eliminates the risks associated with exposing the inner cavity of the camera body.

Designed to be more of a bridge camera, the S10 gives you the latitude to shoot with numerous creative tools at your fingertips, or to simplify things and capture with point-and-shoot ease. Aside from being what's generally agreed to be a multi-purpose zoom lens, good for shooting in a variety of situations, the S10 features 1cm macro shooting, camera shake correction, a VGA movie mode, and other useful features as well.

From Portraits to Landscapes 24-72mm Scene Versatility
RICOH LENS S10 24-72mm has a 3.0x optical zoom lens with coverage from 24mm wide-angle to 72mm medium telephoto. So it can be a wide-angle lens convenient for both expansive landscapes and narrow indoor spaces, a standard lens providing a natural visual field with an angle of view close to that of the naked eye, and a medium telephoto lens, a type that is frequently used for portraits and that provides a view similar to the eye when concentrating on a single point. With this wide focal length coverage in a single lens, it is possible to handle a diverse range of subjects. The photographer can enjoy visual effects unique to photography, such as using the wide-angle capability to get close to the subject and emphasize perspective
Excellent Correction of Aberrations - Sharp Optical Performance at All Focal Lengths
The lens configuration has 7 groups and 11 elements, and the rear focus technique convenient for fast AF is used. Including the first element, a large-diameter aspherical lens, there are a total of 4 aspherical lens elements situated in optimum positions. Using special low-dispersion glass and other techniques, we have achieved compact size while suppressing image distortion and color fringing near the edge, even at 24mm wide-angle. High-resolution and contrast are achieved at all focal lengths. In production, the lens group optical axis and image sensor gradient are precisely adjusted in micron units. Superior optical performance to the edge of the image is insured before the image is delivered to the photographer
Capture Subject Detail from 1cm Point-Blank Range - Close-Up Photography
RICOH LENS S10 24-72mm can do close-up photography with a minimum shooting distance of 1 cm (wide-angle; distance from front of lens). In addition, with zoom macro, which provides greater magnification than standard macro, it is possible to fill the frame with a 17 × 132 mm subject or a 4.3 × 3.2mm subject if digital zoom is also used
High-Sensitivity CCD Achieves Natural and High Image Quality
RICOH LENS S10 24-72mm will be used as the photographer's "everyday" zoom lens. So it utilizes a 1/1.7" high-sensitivity image sensor to achieve both high-level image quality and superior portability. Featuring both high-sensitivity and low-noise characteristics, this CCD can handle the wide sensitivity setting range of ISO100 to 3200. Even in high-sensitivity photography, it is possible to obtain natural-looking images with tonal gradations
Distinct Images without Blurring - Camera Shake Correction and High-Sensitivity Setting
RICOH LENS S10 24-72mm uses the Vibration Correction function developed independently by Ricoh. It is effective for preventing the camera shake that can occur in various situations, such as when you want an ambient-light atmosphere for sunset or party scenes, when shooting in museums and other public facilities where flash use is prohibited, and when shooting nightscapes beyond flash range. In addition, blurring from both camera shake and subject movement can be suppressed using the high-sensitivity shooting capability of up to ISO 3200
Greater Flexibility and Power of Expression - Extensive Selection of Lens Accessories
An easy to attach bayonet-type self-retaining lens cap (LC-2) is available. It is effective for protecting the lens and preventing lens cap loss. Of course, the major benefit is that it increases shooting flexibility by eliminating the effort and inconvenience of having to remove/attach the lens cap every time a picture is taken. There is also a 19mm wide conversion lens (DW-6) with a wide angle of view and a teleconversion lens (TC-1) that can shoot 135mm telephoto. These conversion lenses will increase your power of expression with the ability to achieve greater perspective effects at maximum wide-angle and greater distance compression effects at maximum telephoto. Conversion lenses are mounted using the hood & adapter (HA-3). When HA-3 is attached, filters (43mm diameter, general purpose) can be used
