  • Excerpt: With manufacturers falling over themselves to differentiate their compacts from the alternatives, Ricoh's update of the R5, the R6, is cumbersomely described as 'the world's thinnest camera with a 28mm wide angle, 7.1x optical zoom lens'.

[ REVIEW—RICOH CAPLIO R6 ]

DPexpert
5 October 2007
  • 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. There is no optical viewfinder but the large 65mm LCD is surprisingly useable in bright sunlight, just about the best that we have seen. Controls and menus are well thought out and all functions are easily accessible.
  • 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. It is impossible to photograph moving subjects. Even stationary subjects that blink are a problem – you will almost always get them with their eyes closed. The instruction manual says “make sure the subject is centred” and just press the button. But what if you don’t want the subject centred? Then, the m...

  • 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. Of course looks aren’t everything; the Caplio R6, successor to the R5, packs some admirable specifications in its stylish, diminutive body.

  • Conclusion: a few image-quality niggles are all let down this otherwise delightfully simple incredibly specified point and shoot.

Ricoh Caplio R6

  • Summary: Just 6 months on from the R5 model, the new Ricoh R6 arrives, at first glance with few new standout features. The must-have feature for all compact digicams in 2007, Face Recognition, is supposedly the headline addition to the R6, but as with most of these systems, you'll get better results by focusing the camera yourself.
