I wonder if there is anyone on the list who is in Japan or who travels
regularly to Japan and can help me acquire a Caplio Pro G3 digital camera.
The Caplio is a fairly obscure digital camera, at least in Europe. It has
the ability to carry a GPS card and tag images with GPS location data.
I am looking for someone who can find a supplier in Japan and either arrange
for me to buy one remotely and have it shipped, or can buy one on my behalf
and bring it back for me or whatever works really. I suppose I could
probably find it online if I could read Japanese.
Please contact me direct if you could help with this project!

Ricoh Japan announces Caplio Pro G3

At that time, three variants of the camera were announced - the stock Caplio
G3, the magnesium-coated Model M, and the Model S with ability to tag images
with text and audio clips. Now, our friend Yamada Kumio at Japanese website
digitalcamera.jp writes of a newly announced fourth variant, the Caplio Pro
G3. In the past many of Ricoh's digital cameras have been refined over time
to target them at specific business uses, and this seems to be the case once
again with the Pro G3.

The new version adds a CompactFlash slot not found on the other G3 models
which supports wireless LAN, PHS, GPS and Bluetooth cards. The Caplio Pro G3
also inherits the image-tagging abilities of the Caplio Model S.
Unfortunately, the CompactFlash slot cannot be used for storage, only I/O

The Ricoh Caplio Pro G3 will go on sale in Japan from June 25th at a price
of ¥99,800, with monthly production set at 5,000 units.
