stadiums and large buildings. Wide angle also enables
you to achieve creative effects by, for instance, exaggerating the size of your subject relative to background objects. Best of all, the Caplio R3 is so slim and lightweight
that this dazzling power of expression slips conveniently

A conventional weakness of digital cameras is slow response time. The Caplio R3 delivers faster response every
step of the way.
So you won’t miss a chance at a perfect shot,
the Caplio R3 powers up in approximately 1.1
seconds. The shutter response time is approximately 0.09 seconds without focus lock engaged and approximately 0.007 seconds with
focus lock engaged. And your camera resets
for the next picture in about half a second.

New skew correction function.
Rectangular subjects such as blackboards
and large signboards need to be shot from
a direct frontal angle for optimum sharpness. When you are unable to shoot such
subjects face on, the Caplio R3’s new skew
correction funct ion automaticall y makes
adjustment for the distortion. It’s a hand y
feat ure for business uses as well as for
photographing paint ings, scenes with
large architecture, etc.
Because the photographer cannot gain
enough height to shoot the picture straight
on, it must be photographed at a steep
angle. The Caplio R3 automatically recognizes that the square shape is distor ted and adjusts for it.
