Ricoh R5 Caplio Cam Has 7x Zoom, 7 MP

This image was lost some time after publication, but you can still view it here.

Before we get you hot and bothered about this decently spec'd camera, let me say that thing is Japan only.

Here's why you should be sad about that. The cigarette carton sized camera manages to fit a 7x zoom inside, the equivalent to a 28-200mm lens on a traditional film camera. The 7.1 megapixel camera has CCD shifting anti-shake tech, which will come in useful with such a high zoom rating. Another notable capability is the camera's macro mode, that can shoot up to 1cm away. Lastly, there's a shutter lag of 0.09, focusing not considered. The camera can film vids at 640 by 480, at 30 frames per second. There's more, but it's standard issue stat-smather.
