  • Summary: The Caplio R5 attempts to be jack-of-all-trades on a tight budget and, to be fair, it's the latter that hampers the camera. A slightly plastic, boxy build with a weird curve to the body does it no favours, although good results are achievable with a minimal amount of work.

  • Summary: * I would definitely recommend this camera, with some reservations, as the camera can struggle indoors with noise and occassionally focusing. The camera occassionally has some flash problems (overexposure), so this camera would be best suited, and definitely recommended for mainly outdoor use and...
  • Pros: Very compact and stylish with a solid metal body (will easily fit in pockets), Built in Vibration Reduction image stabilisation helps acheive blur free low-light / zoom photos., 2.5" screen, with 230,000 pixels, 7.1x optical zoom lens, Very fast focusing (Spot AF) and shutter response,, Fast cont...
  • Cons: Flash position, easy to put finger in front of it, Flash overexposes images if the subject is too close, the camera requires you to set the camera to Macro mode if you don't want the flash to overexpose the image, Flimsy battery cover, Shutter button easy to half-press, not so easy to press fully...

  • Excerpt: Poche novità e miglioramenti molto sottili permettono alla Ricoh di attualizzare una delle sue saghe più conosciute. Anche se la GR Digital continua ad essere il referente fotografico della marca, le Caplio R giocano la propria partita in un segmento nel quale la relazione tra qualità e prezzo è...

廣角到望遠,實現一機到底的RICOH Caplio R5

beb.anyday.com.tw
14 November 2006
  • Summary: 這台Ricoh R5,測試前便覺得28-200焦段的鏡頭將會是本機的重點,在實際使用過後更能深刻感受。方便、易於攜帶、續航力強、畫質還OK,加上防手震高iso對於長焦段的輔助,讓這台相機的確動靜皆宜,十分適合外出及旅遊上的使用。
  • Pros: 1、28-200mm的鏡頭,風景、特寫、隨拍、微距通通一機OK, 2、電池續航力,實際試用之後,一顆鋰電撐個200-250張應該不成問題,但可惜不支援4號電池的使用,建議還是得買顆備用電池, 3、操作快速,開機、對焦、快門遲滯都在可接受的範圍內;而Ricoh的ADJ.快捷鍵上手後更動各項設定會變的十分簡便,堪稱一絕(但還是比不上GRD的雙轉輪, 4、螢幕解析度變高了,這次的改進在瀏覽已拍攝的照片的時候更是明顯,不會再有是否脫焦的疑慮
  • Cons: 1、機身設計問題,不僅不好握,手指也容易擋住閃光燈(被燙到好幾次),位置的變焦及模式按鈕互換,怎麼用都不習慣,而且質感頗差,不好用, 2、拍完照後的快速預覽畫面很糊,曝光直方圖的顯示也都有錯,也常發生error當機的情況(聽說Ricoh韌體已更新,情況已有所改善,但我沒有去試), 3、高iso的表現尚有進步的空間(室內以及夜景,先天的機能限制讓小型DC這方面的弱點顯露無遺。)

  • Conclusion: 通过短暂的试用,我们认为理光R5是一款比较出色的全能数码相机。全新SIE II圆滑图像引擎、CCD防抖以及1600的高感光度无疑是在任何环境下成功拍摄相片的有力保障;28-200mm的焦段给我们的拍摄带来更广阔的空间;高画质无限制有声短片拍摄功能将会给我们的拍摄带来更多的乐趣。然而我们同时希望理光R系列的后续产品在高感光度下能有更好的画质表现。 理光R5 价格 理光R5预计将在下周上市,价格大约在2900元左右。 参数...
