Ricoh Introduces the New CX5

Offering High-speed Focus with a Hybrid AF System
Compact digital camera with 10.7´ optical zoom (28-300 mm)

RICOH COMPANY, LTD. (helmed by president and CEO Shiro Kondo) will be releasing its newly developed CX5 digital camera model with its wide-angle, high magnification 10.7´ optical zoom (28–300 mm) lens, which has a higher autofocus speed due to the use of Ricoh's new hybrid AF system.

With the new CX5 model, AF focusing times are decreased to as low as 0.2 sec. for both wide-angle 28 mm and telephoto 300 mm, up to half as short compared to the CX4, using Ricoh's unique new hybrid AF system.This ensures that you reliably capture the image you were waiting for, never to miss another good shot again.

Using super-resolution technology, the CX5 also allows (1) recording of images with improved resolution using the "Super-resolution" setting and (2) telephoto shooting at up to 600 mm equivalent with minimal degradation in image quality using "Super-resolution Zoom."

Furthermore, in addition to the new Cooking, Fireworks, and Continuous Golf Swing scene modes, the CX5 has improved features that make shooting photographs even more fun through the use of super-resolution zoom during Zoom Macro mode shooting and other functions. The CX5 is an even more enhanced compact digital camera that was designed based on the concept of it being "a tool that you will find yourself wanting to use every day."

Available in three colours: Black, Silver, and Pink.

Laplink® Releases Complete Disk Imaging Solution

Imaging Software for Complete System Backup and Restore

London, 10th January 2011, Laplink Software, Inc., the leader in PC migration software, today announced the release of Laplink DiskImage™- advanced Backup and Recovery to protect users from unforeseen data loss.

Laplink DiskImage protects PCs with a perfect copy (image) of all the applications, files and settings. Users can also use it to quickly and easily restore that image and recover damaged or lost files due to corrupted systems, viruses, hackers or other malware. It can even restore to a PC with different hardware using the Hardware Independent Restore feature. 

Using Laplink DiskImage doesn’t just secure data, but the entire PC, including the operating system. When an image is restored, the old PCs setup is restored along with the data regardless of whether it is onto the same PC or onto another one. Laplink DiskImage™ is the perfect solution to protect against unforeseen data loss.

Laplink DiskImage now features PCmover Image Assistant™. This allows for users to restore the image (or hard drive contents) of an old PC to a new one without overwriting anything, even the new operating system. No other imaging software has this capability because if you use any imaging software on the market today to restore an old image to a new PC, it will overwrite everything, including the new operating system. This makes Laplink DiskImage the most complete disk imaging solution available.

PCmover is the #1 best selling migration solution in the world, and is the only software that moves programs, files and settings from an old PC to a new one. Laplink has also been recognized for many years as an expert in file transfer and synchronization technology.

Additional Key Features:
·         Easy-to-Use Create images and perform restorations with the easy-to-use one click wizard.
