The world's first rangefinder digital camera You’re serious about photography. We’re passionate about image quality. Scanning, printing and projection – digital image processing is at the heart of Epson. It’s why we continue to push the boundaries of creative possibilities. The Epson Rangefinder R-D1, the world’s first rangefinder digital camera, is where photographic tradition meets the digital culture. It is a camera to rekindle your love of photography. Craftsmanship The Epson Rangefinder R-D1 reflects the exquisite craftsmanship of a world-class collaboration. The optical expertise of Cosina and the peerless engineering of the Seiko Epson Corporation have been brought together to create a camera in which attention to detail and image quality are paramount. The Epson Rangefinder R-D1 combines digital technology with classic rangefinder design to meet the demands of today’s most discerning photographers. Respect for tradition Epson know that a camera should be an instinctive tool, so the Epson Rangefinder R-D1 is designed to be instantly familiar. With manual reset of the mechanical shutter’s ‘film winder’ and all the creative control of a fully manual camera, the Epson Rangefinder R-D1 supports most* existing M and L mount lenses. The whole rangefinder experience is there: immediate, unobtrusive and quiet. Pure photography Epson have taken the best of digital technology and seamlessly integrated it into the rangefinder tradition. The allmetal Epson Rangefinder R-D1 body incorporates a bright 1.0x viewfinder, so you can compose your image free of distortion or dimming, even in low light. ISO settings range from 200 to 1600, with shutter speeds from 1 second to 1/2000 second. The camera incorporates full manual and aperture priority auto exposure modes, analogue dials and a hot shoe with XSync for external flash. Images can be viewed on a bright 2 inch LCD screen. You can switch between colour and monochrome exposures, change ISO settings shot-by-shot, apply tints, and change saturation instantly to match your photographic style and needs. This camera gives a feeling of creative power and control. Digital imaging excellence Epson digital image processing technology works in harmony with the lens to realise your photographic intent. The Epson Rangefinder R-D1 incorporates a large CCD image sensor to accurately record light information from the lens. Epson Digital Image ARTist (EDIART) is the unique image processing technology that takes optical information from the camera lens to the CCD and processes it into an image file. A RAW image file can be further processed and developed with the supplied PhotoRAW “digital darkroom” software, which is ideal for working on images captured in challenging lighting conditions – exposure compensation, colour temperature adjustment and even black and white images with filter variations can all be easily applied before final image development.
