Feature 1: Outstanding resolution

Polished to an even higher sheen: Functionality as a “tool” to carry with you.
For those who enjoy picture-taking in both business and pleasure, an ideal camera should have what it takes to capture not just images but the photographer’s feelings and intents as well. The refined body, stripped of frills and ornaments to become a perfect portable instrument, is fully equipped with qualities “to shoot what you want to shoot”. The R8 – a camera for people who enjoy photography everyday.

10 million effective pixels, 1/2.3 CCD reproduces the beauty per se.
With its 10 effective megapixel 1/2.3" CCD, the R8 offers highly precise power to express every detail vividly. Paired with the high-performance SIE III image processor, you can capture the smallest of details in brief moments of encounter with your subject.

Feature 2: Optical 7.1x super zoom

High-definition performance captures the photographer’s intentions in a wide range of scenes.

28 – 200mm wide-angle optical 7.1x zoom lens in a compact body that fits snugly in your palm.
Ricoh’s cutting-edge Double Retracting Lens System has enabled a 28 – 200mm wide-angle, optical 7.1x zoom lens to fit perfectly in an easy-to-use, easy-to-carry compact body just 22.6mm thick (at the thinnest part). And to further enhance the camera’s potentials, it is also equipped with a mechanism to switch between two zooming speeds with a single turn of the lever. Wherever you go, it will respond precisely to your motivation to express.

Feature 3: A full range of photographic functions

Photography and editing functions to precisely handle the diverse picture-taking conditions encountered throughout the day.

Aspect ratio of 1:1 stimulates your motivation to express.
Setting the camera to [F1:1] Mode allows you to record your photos in square format common for medium format cameras. It delivers you a different perspective, and saves you the effort when posting images on your blog.
