Yes, Ricoh are doing it right!

Via heise Foto. Now this is good news, at least for (potential) users of Ricoh cameras. The company has just announced firmware updates comprising many improvements that were asked for by their customers. Among the new functions implemented are the following:

  • A new noise reduction algorithm that analyses multiple areas in the picture and applies individual amounts of noise reduction for optimal performance.
  • A shutter speed compensation function in shutter-priority mode that automatically raises or lowers the shutter speed in order to prevent over- or underexposed pictures.

Now these are pretty useful upgrades, I’d say. Hey, Canikopanalympus and all you others, take a look at Ricoh!

UPDATE: dpreview now also heard the news! See here.
