Ricoh's "electrifying rubber"

Ricoh rolls out electrifyingly exciting RUBBER!

It'll be good if they can pull it off: Ricoh has come up with a way to brush up on electricity generation with nothing more than a piece of rubber. Instead of all the gadgetry associated with the Pornhub Wankband, Ricoh's research output is a simple sheet of rubber that generates electricity if rubbed or vibrated. Being a …

Ricoh Theta 360˚ camera: Point and click immersive imaging

Review The Ricoh Theta is yet another excursion of photographic fun intended to deliver an immersive environment, on-line, on the move or on the desktop. It’s been tried before – remember iPIX anyone? That idea – which in the mid-1990s became a hit among high class estate agents – is still going, and still pricey, stitching two fisheye …

Eight... Rugged Cameras

Product Round-up Has anybody not trashed a digital camera at some point while out and about? Dust or sand, water or ice-cream, the great outdoors ruthlessly claims its tech victims on a daily basis. While manufacturers have busily carved out a niche of rugged ‘adventure-proof’ cameras, the truth is that most people, whether on the slopes, at the …

Ricoh e-paper

Ricoh reveals paper-bright colour e-paper

Here's a snap of Ricoh's colour e-paper, which, the company claims, is two-and-a-half times brighter than anyone else's colour e-paper. There's not much colour e-paper out there at the moment, you may have noticed, so Ricoh's boast is a mite hollow. Ricoh e-paper It also reckons its offering has "about four" times as wide a …

Ricoh readies 'flick to transfer' photo app

Camera company Ricoh has released an iPhone app that allows users to send photos and videos straight to each others' handsets. The app is actually intended to allow you to access an online storage system called Quanp, which sounds like some seedy character out of a Dickens novel and is a Dropbox-style service. Quanp for …

Ricoh CX3

Ricoh CX3

Review The CX3 makes an underwhelming first impression. Where high-end compacts such as the Canon G11 and Panasonic Lumix LX3 go all-out with manual controls scattered across the body, the Ricoh is decidedly bare-looking. Ricoh CX3 Certain settings, such as white balance, exposure compensation and ISO can be accessed by prodding …

Ricoh CX2

Ricoh CX2

Review It doesn’t seem five minutes since we looked at the CX1 – well, back in April actually – so it’s quite surprise to find that Ricoh has already launched its successor, the CX2. Again, this is a super-zoom compact seemingly aimed at the enthusiast or the DSLR user who occasionally wants to pack something simpler and smaller. That …

Ricoh GR Digital III

Ricoh GR Digital III compact camera

Review Sometimes, less is more. Take Ricoh’s GR Digital III. It’s a compact camera costing more than £500, but if you’re looking for masses of megapixels, countless scene modes, HD movie recording or even an optical zoom, then forget it. This is the digital camera equivalent of the fixed-gear bicycle; a product for enthusiasts who …

Ricoh Aficio GX 3000S

Faster drying ink means higher print speeds, so Ricoh’s Gelsprinter technology that utilises gel-based inks, is designed to offer high-speed documents, with the benefits of the large colour gamut …

Ricoh CX1

Ricoh CX1

Review The performance of compact cameras has greatly improved over the years, largely as a result of advances in auto technology. Improved autofocus, white balance and exposure systems mean that most pictures will turn out sharp and correctly exposed, while face- and smile-detection systems mean you're more likely to snap your subject …

Ricoh reveals speed snapper

Ricoh will next month roll out its latest high-end compact camera, the CX1. Ricoh CX1 Ricoh's CX1: more to it than megapixels? For once, the megapixel count - it's 9.39 effective, by the way, on a 1/2.3in sensor - wasn't highlighted at at the announcement. Instead, Ricoh touted the CX1's "highly evolved" image processing …

Ricoh extends SLR-wannabe compact camera line

Compact digital cameras a silver, right? And digital SLRs are black, OK? What part of that simple fact doesn't Ricoh understand? Today it launched a compact model that looks, at first glance, like an SLR job. Ricoh GX100 compact camera - front Say hello to the Caplio GX100, a ten-megapixel machine with a lens that's …
