Definately not built to last

Ellie's Mum, Amazon
7 February 2009
  • Summary: Had it for 2.5 years and it's now completely unable to focus at all. It's never been brilliant when taking photos in low light levels - extremely grainy results. I bought it for the high zoom (only compact to do 7x) and the wideangle, and I wish I could get another small camera with such a large zoom, but fed up of buying cameras that ultimately let me down, I've just bought a cheap and cheerful Canon Powershot A470 today (£49 in Argos - sorry Amazon) and the picture...

  • Excerpt: Brought mine April 06, had to send it back at end of July as developed an electrical fault (at a wedding!). Now just got back from Egypt and on the second from last day developed fault again! Only 2 and a bit years old! Not impressed! On the whole I have been happy with it, really wanted it so I could zoom in. Picture quality ok most of the time, occasionally very good. Flash too strong. Still had blurring sometimes. Battery lasted ages.

there are better alternatives out there

  • Summary: got for the other half about a year ago. i liked it because of the known make and largest zoom lens of any compact (at the time). initially i wasn't too impressed with the quality/build - i'm still not. it's slow to use, and difficult to take a good picture. the anti-shake thing doesn't seem to work and you can't take an un-blured photo at night unless resting on a firm surface. i'd not recommend it.

A great camera in its day

  • Excerpt: At 6 megapixels, it's not a class leader any more but that's more than enough for day to day shooting. What impressed me the most when I bought this camera 3 years ago was the lens - an impressive 7.1 optical zoom. This is double what you get in most compact cameras which means you can get closer to the subject you are photographing. It is also quite small and light, perfect for carrying around in a pocket. The screen is big and clear and the functions are easy to use.
  • Pros: Small, light, great 7 . 1 optical zoom lens, lots of features to change settings, long battery life
  • Cons: Bit old now, flash can be covered by a stray finger

Caplio R4 digital camera

paggy576, Ciao
26 March 2008
  • Excerpt: This product is one of the best cameras other there for value for money this is what I feel any way. It has a 6.0 mega pixel camera which is great for catching the moment you want to remember, it also has a 7.1 wide optical zoom meaning you picture will not pixel ate so you can get right up close with your picture. It is very slim and can fit into your pocket easily.
  • Pros: good value for money
  • Cons: way too many fuctions on it

  • Conclusion: Batterilivslängd: 5 Bildkvalitet: 5 Hållbarhet: 1 Kameran tar fantastiska bilder, fullt i klass med min d60. Makrot är imponerande med en närgräns som är obefintlig. I kombination med en 7x zoom är det en kamera för varje semestertillfälle. En varning dock för byggkvalitén som är undermålig. Objektivet är rackigt och släpper in damm. Zoomen låter som en stenkross och är långsam. Autofokusen missar ofta målet om det inte är fullt dagsljus. Trots det älskar jag min Ricoh!
  • Pros: Bildkvalitén Makrofunktionen
  • Cons: Byggkvalitén Autofokusen

Bien sur le papier, nul en pratique

hoele2, Ciao
31 December 2007
  • Summary: Sur le papier et d 'aprés les premier rapports de tests il avait l'air génial, j 'ai donc craqué et là quelle déception !.. Ses avantages: ------------------------------------- - Un zoom 7X (28:200) et grand angle, alors que ses concurrents n'ont que des zooms 3X. - un grand écran LCD de 2,5 pouces - un mode vidéo avec son - Une sensibilité jusqu'à 800 ISO - un système anti-bougé - accepte des cardes Secure Digital SD (bien moins chères que les Xd des Fuji ou Olympus)...
  • Pros: gros zoom, compact
  • Cons: énorme bruit dans l'image, sensibilité et mise au point nulles
