  • Excerpt: This is a 7.2 megapixel compact camera with a 7.1x zoom lens – 28–200mm film equivalent focal length range. The lens is quick to focus, very sharp and has acceptable distortion at the ends of its exceptional range. The camera is well made and looks elegant.
  • Pros: This camera can produce images of remarkable quality. Exposure, white balance and resolution are all in the top league and image noise at ISO200 is not objectionable. There is a 192 page printed instruction book.
  • Cons: The R6 has a quirk. Used in the manner of most digital compact cameras, that is by half depressing the shutter button to set focus and exposure, there is shutter lag.

Ricoh Caplio R6

23 July 2007
  • Excerpt: The Ricoh Caplio R6 is, in my humble opinion, one of the best looking low-end cameras on the market. Available in Black, Red and Silver with the former two very tastefully combining their primary colour with silver accented styling it’s almost certain to impress.

Ricoh Caplio R6 - Test 7,1 Megapixel Kompakt-Digitalkamera

2 April 2009
  • Summary: In Sachen Auflösung schaffte die Ricoh Caplio R6 sehr ungleichmäßige Ergebnisse. So produzierte sie bei kurzer Brennweite in der Bildmitte einen Wirkungsgrad von über 110 Prozent, was auf starke Scharfzeichnung und daraus resultierende Artefakte hindeutet.

  • Excerpt: Ricoh er ikke helt som andre kameraprodusenter. De har ikke så store markedsandeler, men har en egen evne til å produsere modeller med interessante egenskaper. For eksempel har de i lengre tid tilbudt modeller med 28mm (ekvivalent) vidvinkel, mens konkurrentene ofte stoppet på 35mm eller ennå mer.

8 April 2008
  • Conclusion: Die Ricoh Caplio R6 gefällt trotz ihrer Schwächen mit einer Kombination aus praktischer Ausstattung und insgesamt guter Bildqualität, der Preis von etwa 260 Euro ist angemessen. Damit schlägt sie die direkte und etwa gleich teure Konkurrentin Casio Exilim EX-V7 knapp.
  • Pros: Bildqualität, 7fach-Zoom, Bildstabilisator
  • Cons: Langsam, Unpräzises Zoom
