Excerpt: I love the 28mm wide angle, the flash works well at night on street scenes, snow scenes and inside. The images are sharp and colour is often very good if properly exposed. The AF is very accurate in descent lighting, and quite good in poor lighting with the flash. The LCD is very clear.
Excerpt: Spent ages looking at reviews of different point and shoot cameras, that were compact. Decided on the R7 because - fantastic zoom - amazing macro ability - good quality pictures (from what I have seen on the net) I had the camera a day and spent a lot of time trying different shots outside and in...
Excerpt: Just after my daughter was born I bought the Ricoh Caplio R7 for my wife as she was on maternity leave and I wanted her to have something nice and easy to use so she could capture the changes over those first few months.
Pros: Packed with features and a brilliant zoom
Cons: Sound problems in video mode but that could be a one off
Excerpt: The camera was given to me in March 2008 as a retirement present. In June 2010 the lens assembly failed and was replaced for free. Just a year later it was failed again with the same fault, once again it was replaced for free. 10 months later whilst on holiday in Australia the same fault occured.
Pros: Neat looking camera easy to use .
Cons: Lens assembly has failed 3 times in 4 years .
Excerpt: This is a fantastic small camera, i previously owned a compact samsung camera, but was pushed to buy the ricoh R7 as i do get inspiration from reviews myself and the ricoh had exellent reviews on various sites.
Pros: Unbeatable value for money, great pictures and cool lense
Cons: cant complain for the price, just chuck it in your pocket and take it anywhere !
Excerpt: overall I have to say that I'm pretty disappointed. I'm no camera buff, so I wanted something that'd cope with most eventualities like my old Kodak. This new camera really doesn't cope very well with either extreme of lighting - I thought that this point and click jobbie would do that for me without...
Excerpt: Picked this up nearly 3 months ago now as my third compact digital after having a kodak for my first then a canon IXUS 500 after that. I also shoot with a Canon EOS 300d so was looking for great image quality, and a general upgrade from my IXUS.
Pros: great image quality from a tiny camera !
Cons: noisy lens mechanism due to it being such a big lens in such a small body
Excerpt: The Ricoh Caplio R7 was released in August 2007. This camera has an amazing 7x optical zoom ( basically how much it can zoom when capturing an image) which is an exceptional amount considering it's size and price.
Pros: optical zoom, macro, stylish, not expensive, speedy
Summary: Tengo la camara 1 año y medio y continuamente me ha dado problemas el zoom. 2 veces ha ido al servicio técnico donde ha pasado más de 3 meses. debido a unas manchas que salian en las fotos.Cuando funciona las fotos con buena luz salen muy bien, pero no las nocturnas.
