  • Excerpt: Image quality is the best of the R series and IMO better than the CX pair also , imagine GX100 quality scaled down to a small sensor and you`re there - the R5 bugbear is that its Poorly made AND designed with lens Jams, crashes, frequent AF misses and sporadic blurred RH edge problems - add the worst designed zoom lever possible and you`ve got a right mixed bag on your hands - whether its treasure or trash depends on how good you are at keeping it running and how good...

  • Excerpt: I purchased the R5 to replace my defunct Praktica Luxmedia (relatively obscure make, but very nice photos). The good things are the nice zoom range, some manual controls and the dedicated button to show the last picture taken. The menus are very easy to follow and quite clear. No problems there. The macro ability is very good, with a nice control to change the focus point manually - something I hadn't seen on any other camera before.

  • Excerpt: Image quality isn't as good as other cameras I have seen (grainy). When I turn the camera on I get inteference on the LCD screen like tv inteference. Zooming in the LCD picture is blurry (can't see what is being photographed) - have to move close to the subject to use zoom effectively. Low light pictures are grainy unless you up the ISO. Highest ISO settings produces a better picture at night/ in low light.

Unlucky!

  • Excerpt: "I must just be one of the unlucky ones. I have had to send this camera back to the manufacturers twice and the pictures are still not right. The first time a black splodge appeared in the centre of the screen. When I downloaded the photos the splodge was on that too. The second time the zoom would not go back in, only a few weeks apart. I just cant seem to take an in focus picture and it is so frustrating as I am missing out on so many pictures of ...

Ni se os ocurra comprarla

  • Summary: Una autentica porqueria, lo unico bueno es su zoom de 7x, pero solo para fotos de dia, no se os ocurra sacar una foto de noche que no os va a salir nada.O salen con mucha claridad y muy oscuras, eso sacandolas a un objeto a 2 metros, a mas ni se te ocurra sacar nada y a menos tampoco. También es mas fragil que una copa de vidreo, que no se de un golpe pequeño que adios camara. Conclusión, saco mejor fotos con mi movil de 2 megapixles que con esta camara.

¡¡Se cascó!!

  • Summary: Pues el otro día mientras andaba haciendo fotos, se quedó enganchado el objetivo y no ha vuelto a vivir. Está a medio cerrarse, con la pantalla protectora abierta y algo suena como si se hubiera soltado alguna pieza en el interior. ¿sabeis de algún sitio en Madrid donde llevarla y que me den presupuesto?, porque lo de mandarla al servicio técnico a Barcelona y de allí a Alemania....como que no es plan para una cámara de menos de 200 euros.

Die Kompakt-Billig-Tele- Weitwinkel-Macro-Kamera

jussufle, Ciao
22 November 2007
  • Summary: Warnung Achtung ich möchte eines vorweg sagen: Ich besitze diese Kamera erst seit wenigen Tagen, und kann deshalb noch nicht sehr viel darüber sagen. Da das, was einem als erstes aufgefallen ist, oft gerade das ist, was man als Käufer gerne wissen wollte, werde ich das hier nieder schreiben, und in ein paar Wochen/Monaten, wenn ich die Kamera besser kenne, einen ausführlichen Bericht schreiben.
  • Pros: Zoombereich, Abmessungen, Preis
  • Cons: Schlechtes Handing, verrauscht leicht .

Ricoh Caplio R5

mbtest, Ciao
8 November 2007
  • Summary: Da meine Ricoh Caplio R30 aus einer Garantieabwicklung nicht mehr auffindbar war (Real) habe ich mein Geld zurück bekommen. Da ich von der R30 überzeugt war habe ich mich entschlossen die R5 für 220€ zu kaufen daich unbedingt wieder eine Ricoh haben wollte. Schon beim anschauen der R5 sieht man eine anständige Verarbeitung. Der Metallrahmen um das stabile Gehäuse zeugt für Stabilität.
  • Pros: Brennweite 28  -  200mm +  +  1cm Makro +  +  Verarbeitung +  + super schnell +  +
  • Cons: Überbelichtung bei Bildern mit Blitz
