Summary: I don't understand the experts' rave reviews. Are they sure it was a Caplio R7 they tested. It's the worst compact camera I have ever owned. The lens seized up within a few weeks. I had to switch off and on several times to release it. A few months later the focusing went completely. The battery/card slide was always sliding open. Reading others' reviews I'm not alone in saying that the R7 is an utter waste of your money, avoid at all costs even at bargain prices.
Pros: very little, when it did work it was okayish
