Ricoh PX overview

  • 1Description

The Ricoh PX Digital Camera (Green) is a solid point-and-shoot with a high 16Mp resolution and numerous features and functions. Compact and easy to carry around, the PX captures detailed, high-quality images with help from its 1/2.3" CCD sensor. A 2.7" LCD provides a both a composition and review platform, while the built-in 5-25mm lens with 5x optical zoom helps you get up close to your subjects.

In addition to capturing still images, the PX also captures 1280 x 720 HD video. But no matter which format you choose to shoot in, you can store your files to SD/SDHC memory cards, including Eye-fi media. Another highlight of the PX is its dirt-proof and water-proof design. The camera has a class 8 JIS/IEC water resistance rating, that allows for use underwater at a depth of 9.8' for up to 60 minutes. The PX also boasts a class 6 JIS/IEC dust resistance rating, which means even at the beach you don't have to be afraid to shoot.

Among the numerous user-friendly features the PX boasts what Ricoh calls their premium shot mode. By selecting one out of the several of options, you can relax and enjoy the moment while the camera does all the work. Examples of the various modes include the cooking mode, which adjusts for brightness and hue, the auction mode, which allows you to collage multiple photos in one image for online auction sites, and the sports mode for capturing photos of moving subjects. Additional features include subject-tracking AF, face-priority, and a calendar playback option.

High Quality, All the Time
  • A high-resolution 16Mp CCD image sensor beautifully renders any subject
    With its 16Mp CCD sensor and Smooth imaging IV image processing engine, the Ricoh PX can reproduce any scene in high resolution. Noise reduction lessens visual noise for clear results even in night shots
  • Image-sensor-shift image stabilization reduces blur
    Image-sensor-shift image stabilization reduces blur for crisp, clear photos at high zoom ratios when lighting is poor
  • 5x optical zoom makes great results easy at wide angles and in telephoto shots. Use super resolution (SR) zoom for an effect equivalent to 10x optical zoom
    5x (28-140mm) optical zoom can capture objects close up, at long range, or anywhere in between. Add to this SR digital zoom based on super resolution technology that can achieve results equivalent to 10x optical zoom or a lens with a focal length of 280mm with almost no drop in image quality. Telephoto photography at zoom equivalents up to 1,344mm are available in digital zoom, allowing you to photograph worlds invisible to the naked eye
  • Automatically crop and resize images with auto resize zoom
    Auto resize zoom shows its strength in telephoto shots of distant subjects. Zoom in up to 7.2x (equivalent to a focal length of approximately 202mm in 35mm format). Image quality is assured by recording only the portion of the image that contains your subject. Auto resize zoom is made even more effective by the high-resolution, 16-million-pixel image sensor
  • Four-pixel interpolation captures night scenes in beautiful detail
    Four-pixel interpolation raises sensitivity while reducing noise, keeping blur to a minimum for beautiful shots of night scenery
    Neighboring pixels are interpolated to increase sensitivity by four times for higher resolution and reduced noise even at high sensitivities
  • High performance in the Ricoh tradition of 'pure' image quality made available to all, hassle-free
    The dedication to image quality behind all Ricoh digital cameras is more than just a commitment to 'pure' image quality faithful to what the eye sees. The Ricoh PX, while true to this tradition, makes it even easier to enjoy the possibilities 'pure' image quality has to offer

In premium shot mode, camera settings can be optimized simply by using the direct button to select the desired scene. Premium shot modes are available for up to 28 scenes, including a hand-held night scene mode that uses four-pixel interpolation for beautiful shots of night scenery, modes for cooking, sweets, sports, items being sold at auction, parties, and pets, and modes for storing custom premium shot modes. Even subjects that ordinarily would require special techniques can be beautifully photographed with "point-and-shoot"

  • Multi-pattern auto white balance guarantees natural colors
    It can be difficult to get the colors you want with scenes that mix sunlight and shade or under other types of mixed lighting. Multi-pattern auto white balance optimizes white balance separately for each area of the frame for colors that, when compared to those produced by existing white balance algorithms that average the results for the entire frame, are closer to what is seen by the naked eye
  • Outdoors white balance
    Selected when Auto mode does not properly compensate for outdoor lighting (manual override)
  • Multiple aspect ratios lend variety to your photos
