  • 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. In Mode scene, I have used the macro for bugs, frogs and plants that took impressive shots at all zoom length.

  • 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 and in different lighting conditions.

Good pictures, shame about the video

  • 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. I did all the research on the cameras that fitted the budget I had in mind and originally decided against the Ricoh despite the good reviews as it was too expensive.
  • Pros: Packed with features and a brilliant zoom
  • Cons: Sound problems in video mode but that could be a one off

Lens assembly faulty

bec2505, Ciao
27 May 2012
  • 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. This time I am expected to pay 119 euros to have the assembly, which only lasted 10 months. The fault marred my very expensive holiday. The fault is obvuisly inherrent.
  • Pros: Neat looking camera easy to use .
  • Cons: Lens assembly has failed 3 times in 4 years .

Ease of the compact Ricoh R7

fu77yduck, Ciao
26 May 2009
  • 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. The ricoh has lived up to its expectations which i am overwhelmed as i wasted alot of pictures of my baby boy when he was newly born as the compact sumsung was useless at capturing moving subjects, like babies.
  • 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 !

Ricoh Caplio R7

Cal_in_Wo..., Ciao
23 September 2008
  • 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 any problems. on the plus side, it is very small and light - you really don't know it's there which is really useful. The screen is fab too.
  • Pros: small size, great screen
  • Cons: zoom mechanism keeps jamming;

Best Compact Digi I've Ever Used

marksweb, Ciao
19 February 2008
  • 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. I went for the R7 because it starts up and shoots so fast its perfect as a little point and shoot. The zoom level is brilliant and I don't even use digital zoom.
  • 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

Small camera, BIG optical Zooooooooooooooooooom

03stsin, Ciao
6 February 2008
  • 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. It also has 8 megapixels along with a 2.7 inch screen with 230k pixel resolution.It weighs161 grams (including battery) and is very compact, you would really notice it in your bag or your pocket.
  • Pros: optical zoom, macro, stylish, not expensive, speedy
  • Cons: Some features are not very effective

me ha salido mala y necesito direccion post venta

5 January 2010
  • 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. El zoom es muy débil y con una mínima vibración o sin causa aparente se atasca y no se esconde, ni quitando la batería. También he tenido problemas de desconfiguración del software.

Gute Kamera, leider Schwächen mit dem Objektiv!

spinnradl, Ciao
11 December 2008
  • Summary: Ich habe mich für die Ricoh entschieden, wegen dem großem Zoombereich von 28 - 200 mm und vor allem weil er bei 28 mm beginnt! Von den Fotos war ich begeistert, super Qualität, außer bei Aufnahmen mit Blitz, da hat Sie einige Schwächen, gegenüber meiner alten Kamera! Akkulaufzeit ist hervorragend! Bediennung auch, ich kamm bei der Kamera fast ohne Bediennungsanleitung aus!
  • Pros: Akkuleistung, Bedienung, Zoombereich, Handlichkeit,
  • Cons: Qualität von Objektiv,
