Heads Up For Ricoh G600 on 05/06/2008 10:57:36 MDT Print View

Just a heads up for a new point and shoot digital camera that was introduced April 22, 2008. It may be of interest to backpackers-excuse the redundancy if it's already been mentioned.


-Smaller and lighter than the popular Ricoh Caplio 500G.

-Superior water and dust resistance-in compliance with US Department of Defense "Mil Standard 810F", whatever that means!

-Powerful Flash

-Large 2.7 inch LCD

-Compact and lightweight body that can be carried in a breast pocket.

-28-140 zoom lens, wider than most, a perfect range for a backpacking point and shoot I might add.

-10 mega pixel sensor

-Comes with lithium ion battery, but will run on AAA batteries.

-Apparently no image stablization which I think is a desirable feature.

-Apparently no optical viewfinder which I think is a desirable feature, especially outside
