The GR LENS A12 50 mm uses a 23.6 mm × 15.7 mm CMOS sensor and 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.
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.
A 1/1.7-inch high-sensitivity image sensor is used 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.
