Ricoh has unveiled a new entry to its Caplio line-up of digital compacts.

The Caplio R40 packs in a 5.7x optical zoom lens, 6MP 1/25inch CCD and 2.5inch LCD into a slim line camera body that measures 26mm deep. The R40 uses Ricoh?s Double Retracting Lens System which enables the whole camera lens to fit inside the camera body during lens storage.

Available in black, the camera is billed as a more affordable alternative to the existing R4 Caplio compact and will arrive in stores during June. Additional features include macro focusing from just 1cm, a focal length f4.6 ? 26.4 and improved shutter and response times.
