Ricoh Consumer Products Group is pricing its RDC-4300 camera--which provides users with 1280 x 960 resolution--at $699.
This will place it, said the vendor, into the hands of "a broader array of emerging digital-savvy photographers."
"Customers today are faced with a confusing set of options when considering the purchase of a digital camera," said Joseph Bollentini, senior VP of Ricoh Consumer Products Group. "The RDC-4300 digital camera alleviates the confusion by offering users a complete solution that combines high-resolution, a full set of productivity software, a rechargeable battery kit and performance-oriented features at a price point that appeals to a greater market audience."
One of the most intriguing features of the RDC-4300, said the firm, is its built-in sound capabilities. Although it is a stills camera, it is designed to allow the user to record eight seconds of customized audio to each image. Potential applications for the sound facility include personalized e-mail attachments and archival notations.
Software comes with the camera, and includes Kai's Power Show and LogoMotion for creating presentations and 3D objects; ArcSoft PhotoBase and PhotoStudio 2.0 for image editing and retouching; and Enroute's QuickStitch and QuickStitch 360 for creating panoramic images and movies.
The Ricoh RDC-4300 package is available now from Ricoh resellers in the United States.
