Ricoh Japan has announced a new release of firmware along with new Windows software for its RDC-i700 digital camera. The Windows software has been updated to version 2.24, which works under Microsoft's Windows ME platform, and fixes a bug related to copying multiple files to/from the camera. The v2.24 software requires the camera be updated to the new firmware release, v1.24. No information was available as to what has been changed in the firmware, nor whether new firmware/software for cameras sold outside Japan was planned...
Ricoh has also posted an acknowledgement on its website that Time magazine has selected the RDC-i700 as 'Invention of the Year 2000' in the 'Consumer Technology' section... The RDC-i700, which began shipping in Japan last September, has yet to reach the market in the USA.
