From portraits to landscapes
RICOH LENS S10 24-72 mm has a 3.0x optical zoom lens with coverage from 24 mm wide-angle to 72 mm medium telephoto. So it can be a wide-angle lens convenient for both expansive landscapes and narrow indoor spaces, a standard lens providing a natural visual field with an angle of view close to that of the naked eye, and a medium telephoto lens, a type that is frequently used for portraits and that provides a view similar to the eye when concentrating on a single point. With this wide focal length coverage in a single lens, it is possible to handle a diverse range of subjects. The photographer can enjoy visual effects unique to photography, such as using the wide-angle capability to get close to the subject and emphasize perspective.
* Lens focal lengths are converted into 35 mm camera equivalents.
Excellent correction of various types of aberrations
The lens configuration has 7 groups and 11 elements, and the rear focus technique convenient for fast AF is used. Including the first element, a large-diameter aspherical lens, there are a total of 4 aspherical lens elements situated in optimum positions. Using special low-dispersion glass and other techniques, we have achieved compact size while suppressing image distortion and colour fringing near the edge, even at 24 mm wide-angle. High-resolution and contrast are achieved at all focal lengths. In production, the lens group optical axis and image sensor gradient are precisely adjusted in micron units. Superior optical performance to the edge of the image is insured before the image is delivered to the photographer.
Capture subject detail from 1 cm point-blank range
RICOH LENS S10 24-72 mm can do close-up photography with a minimum shooting distance of 1 cm (wide-angle; distance from front of lens). In addition, with zoom macro, which provides greater magnification than standard macro, it is possible to fill the frame with a 17×132 mm subject or a 4.3×3.2 mm subject if digital zoom is also used.
High-sensitivity CCD achieves natural and high image quality
RICOH LENS S10 24-72 mm will be used as the photographer's "everyday" zoom lens. So it utilizes a 1/1.7-inch high-sensitivity image sensor to achieve both high-level image quality and superior portability. Featuring both high-sensitivity and low-noise characteristics, this CCD can handle the wide sensitivity setting range of ISO100 to 3200. Even in high-sensitivity photography, it is possible to obtain natural-looking images with tonal gradations.
