Following up on the GX100 released last year, the Ricoh GX200 digital camera lets you take some rather brilliant shots at a stunning resolution of 12 megapixels. There are other point-and-shoots out there that boast that kind of resolution, but few do the RAW thing like this Ricoh.
Set to go on sale in Japan on the fourth of July (how American?) and the rest of the world later this year, the Ricoh GX200 features a 12-megapixel 1/1.7-inch CCD, a 25mm thick body, 24-72mm zoom lens, 2.7-inch HVGA LCD display, and an electronic level function for horizontal and vertical shooting. It’s also quite notable that the GX200 has a 5fps continuous RAW mode. Not quite a DSLR, but pretty close.
Pricing starts at $560. If you want the model with a tilting VF-1 electronic viewfinder, then you’ll need to pay about $740.
