The new Caplio R6 features such as a 7.1x wide zoom and high
performance CCD-shift vibration correction from the Caplio R5 (open
priced, launched September 15, 2006, featuring 7.24 megapixel CCD).
Vibration Correction eliminates the shake from hand movement, which is
the main cause of blurred images. The Caplio R6 also incorporates
advancements over its predecessor with new features such as a slim body
20.6 mm at its thinnest point (26 mm for the Caplio R5) and a face
recognition mode that automatically recognizes the subjectís
face or faces and records the image at the optimal settings.
In addition to functional advancements, the Caplio R6 adopts the Caplio
R5ís design image while creating an anticipation of high
performance through new design features. Those features include
generous use of metal to house the lens, a distinctive strap
attachment, and curves on the top. The Caplio R6 also features improved
feel of robustness and texture.
