Ricoh i700s Focus Is Fine
Ricoh's RDC-i700 is perhaps the most powerful digital camera on the market.Ricohs RDC-i700 is perhaps the most powerful digital camera on the market. In other words, its overkill for snapshot-shooting consumers. Fortunately for Ricoh, it is targeting the corporate market with the i700 and, for the most part, hits the bulls-eye. On the surface, the $1,300 i700 looks like an ordinary high-end digital camera. Beneath the covers, however, the camera contains its own Web server, a PCMCIA adapter and a 3.5-inch, touch-screen LCD that let me edit, crop, delete, compress, e-mail and upload pictures to a Web server.
The real power of the camera is in the many ways it connects to the Internet. I was able to plug a PCMCIA network adapter into the unit and access images via a Web browser. I also could use a CompactFlash card or a regular USB cable and could connect wirelessly via Metricoms Ricochet network.
