Excerpt: I have owned this camera for over a year now and I have to say I still love it. It is not a point and shoot, you have to learn the camera to get the best out of it, but once you do, you will love it.
Excerpt: I have had this camera for a few months and it takes awesome outdoor shots in full light! The Macro is just insane, crystal clear, zoom is also fantastic. I am so glad I bought this little gem. Problems: Low light issues
Excerpt: Great features in a small camera. I guess that is what everyone is attracted to by the R4. Here's what I like about it: It's quick. No shutter lag to speak of. Snap focus mode makes a quick camera exceptionally quick.
Excerpt: Ricoh's R-range of cameras are unique in offering a 28-200mm (35mm equiv') zoom lens range, with vibration correction technology, in such a small and reasonably priced digital compact. It was this spec that drew me to the R4, and I've been delighted with it.
Excerpt: The R4 produces excellent images - much better than might be expected from its size. It is an ideal complement to my fixed-focus Ricoh GR-D. For the price of two tiny cameras I get a highly portable wide range of lens utility and quality results.
Excerpt: A constant companion due to its' small size , photographic versatility, and very clear colorful pictures generated . After a month of ownership and about 1000 shots later , I have become very attached to the Ricoh R4 .
Excerpt: I've chosen this camera with great care, being used to SLR. So I knew the flash is very very poor. Unfortunatly my camera has quite often problems with banding. But for the rest the camera is as expected: small, good zoom range and a surpricingly marvelous macro.
Excerpt: Had the camera 3 months now. I’m a keen amateur photographer, with a 35mm DSLR, and I spent many months looking for the “perfect” compact camera, for those occasions when you go for a stroll and don’t expect to need a camera but just might.
Excerpt: -Great 7.1x optical zoom + wide angle (28-200mm) in a pocketable stylish body -Very efficient antishake system -Fast operation -Good colours -Wonderful macro - Ricoh´s specialty -Excellent battery life -Virtually NO red eye, which is very rare in pocket cameras Problems: Movie mode is disappointing.
