  • Excerpt: These days it's a common trend amongst manufacturers to release new cameras with fewer and fewer differences from the preceeding model. Canon typified this when they released the successor to the EOS 20D. After all the pomp and ceremony, the main difference with the 30D model was a larger LCD and the addition of spot metering.

Ricoh Caplio R4

PhotographyBLOG
23 April 2007
  • Summary: The Ricoh Caplio R4 is a marginal improvement on its predecessor, the Ricoh R3. There are very few changes in specification - just a slightly higher resolution LCD screen, simplified vibration reduction mode (only one mode in the R4) and the addition of one extra megapixel. Surprisingly, the increase in megapixels seems to have actually improved the image quality a little, with noise now starting to appear at ISO 200, rather than ISO 100 as on the R3.

  • Summary: The Ricoh R4 performs admirably and it’s a good improvement on its predecessor. Aesthetically pleasing, the handling is straightforward with easy access to a number of shooting modes and the long zoom is excellent. There is some image noise at higher ISOs but that shouldn’t overshadow a good solid performance.
