Overexposure and underexposure Control
Ricoh's image processing technology and pixel interpolation algorithms are used to control overexposure. By comparing pixel outputs and then predicting and interpolating image data in the overexposed area, the dynamic range has been expanded by as much as +1 EV. We have also added a new Dynamic Range Compensation feature that serves to expand dynamic range. It improves the richness and smoothness of gradations for everything from highlights to dark sections.
Enhanced auto-bracket functions
In addition to the existing settings for exposure and white balance, the camera now includes settings for Contrast Bracket and Dynamic Range Compensation Bracket as well as an Image Setting Bracket feature that allows you to record a sequence of three shots with two image settings of your choice. This eliminates the need to bother with changing photo settings manually. You can continue to take photographs with comfort, just concentrating on the subject.
Scene mode for capturing star trails against a landscape
Take a series of photos of the night sky at a fixed interval. The camera selects and combines only the high-intensity pixel data from each of those images. This is very effective for when you want to combine the trails of the stars and the moon with a landscape. You can also save copies of the images separately before combining them.
Enhanced image setting modes
Two new modes have been added to Image Settings*. The first is Positive Film, which will recall a famous type of film used in the past. The second is Bleach Bypass, with which you can create low chroma, high contrast silvered images. The camera also has standard settings such as High Contrast B & W which gives images the flavor of dramatic monochrome prints and Cross Process for creating unique color combinations. You can apply these image settings regardless of the exposure control mode in use. The breadth of your creations will expand.
Multiple Exposure Shooting, making composite photographs easy and fun
A new feature with this model is the ability to combine up to 5 photos. Have fun getting creative with your photos by creating drama through combining shots of different scenes into a single image. You can adjust the settings in detail as necessary, such as automatically adjusting the amount of exposure in accordance with the number of snaps, saving each image separately before combining, and saving images when combining. You can also use the Retake shot option immediately after you take a photo, allowing you to get the photo you imaged with ease.
Now even bulb shooting is available with Exposure control modes
