  • Excerpt: Bought just a refurb R5 (fw.162). Fine little cam! Yes, the zoomlever is a little bit fiddly, but the R5 is mostly well constructed, nice to handle and the IQ is quiet impressive for such a flexible lens in a small package. I love the great macro capability and the bw mode, which is not coupled with a scene mode as in newer R-models. Im very glad that i found a as new R5, cause i would'nt buy one of the successors. Problems: So far, none.

  • Excerpt: Had two R3s, both of which had blurry lower left corners. After reading lots of negative as well as some very positive reviews about the R5 (and after getting a good deal) I decided to go for it and give it a try myself. I lucked out as my copy has very good edge to edge sharpness, so far no AF problems and a smoothly functioning zoom lever. Picture quality is very good. In fact i like it better than the IQ from the R3s (blurry corners aside).

  • Excerpt: Seems like Ricoh took a small step back with this one. I loved the R4 and expected the R5 to be better. However, the zoom rocker is definitely not as easy to use as the R4 and I can't see any improvement on the image quality either. It's still a great little cam, with the wide angle and zoom that makes the R series such a great little travel companion. But I'd still have the R4 over this version. Problems: None really.

  • Excerpt: HANDLING: a bit ackward at the beginning but I got familiar to this rather quickly. MACRO: fantastic macro capabilities! BATTERY: the camera’s low consumption profile helps in taking many shots before the battery runs out, however I ‘d recommend a second battery. Camera shake correction: effective but not as much as I’d like it to be. ZOOM: fantastic 7x optical zoom.

Erfahrungen mit Rico Kameras

  • Summary: Ich hatte bis vor kurzem eine Rico Caplio R30. Diese ist mir leider heruntergefallen, und nach einer recht langen Nutzungszeit (ca.4 Jahre) hätte sich eine Rep. nicht mehr gelohnt. Ich habe mit dieser Kamera eigentlich immer recht gute Bilder gemacht. Sie ist handlich, gut zu bedienen und hat z.B. mit den Intervallaufnahmen eine Funktion, die man sehr selten findet. Deshalb habeich mir bei ebay eine R5 ersteigert.
