Ricoh RDC-5000 Web Color Limited Edition (1999)

Ricoh revamped the popular RDC-5000 camera into 6 crazy, shiny colors in 1999 and marketed them as the Web Color Limited Edition series. They could only be ordered online in small quantitites and were sold out pretty fast. Sadly none of these have ever surfaced.

The six colors were:

1. Rosso Uno - deep red graduation
2. Celeseste tre - deep blue gradation
3. Verde due - Deep Green Gradient
4. Frutta camouflage orange
5. Moderno carbon black
6. Foresta camouflage gray.

Don't ask me who came up with these colors or names, they are somewhat out of the ordinary.

Thanks to Andrew for pointing this out!
