More than a lens, the Ricoh S10 24-72mm f/2.5-4.4VC Lens for Camera Unit 2 is, as the name implies, a completely self-contained camera. When combined with the Ricoh GXR System body the S10 is ready, willing, and able to help you create stunning images with 10Mp of resolution, a 1/1.7" CCD sensor, and multiple features and functions that keep your creative side satisfied.
The Camera Unit promises all this and no dust in the lens or sensor, thanks to the enclosed design. Unlike other digital cameras out there that require you to switch out lenses when you want to change up your point of view, the S10 eliminates the risks associated with exposing the inner cavity of the camera body.
Designed to be more of a bridge camera, the S10 gives you the latitude to shoot with numerous creative tools at your fingertips, or to simplify things and capture with point-and-shoot ease. Aside from being what's generally agreed to be a multi-purpose zoom lens, good for shooting in a variety of situations, the S10 features 1cm macro shooting, camera shake correction, a VGA movie mode, and other useful features as well.
