  • Excerpt: 1. IQ: There are samples on the net i was largely satisfied it was what i expected from the sensor/lens/processing combo. It does ok for ISO values between 64 and 400 but 800 and 160 do push the envelope, white balance is a little to warm. 2 Ease of use: Found all i needed to know about operating the camera in about 15 mins.

  • Excerpt: I purchased this acmera for my grandaughter and I also tried it. The combination of IQ, zoom range, camera size is really impressive. The movie clips are quite adequate. Problems: The only problem is this camera performance in a very low night - like when taking a night shots without being able to use flash. But maybe we did not exhaust this camera modes and capabilities.

  • Excerpt: Have had camera 4 mo, am very pleased. I too am mystified by low image quality ratings by some others - maybe Ricoh's spotty QC ? The zoom lens range (28 mm (equiv) - 7x), and 1 cm macro focus is a great asset and must be unmatched in this camera class...amazing for such a compact camera. Problems: Stronger flash (as in Panasonic FX33) would be nice, but not a problem.

  • Excerpt: Good DC and it was with me for over 2 months, $1800 hong now, and it was increditble of 7x zoomwith this size, and good choice for traveller, battery is quite good, over 300 shots with 1/10 with flash. Pic quality was good ( did not know why so many user said it was worse or bad) overall is 4.5 star DC, recommeded to beginners.

  • Excerpt: I have owned the R7 for about 2 months. I also cannot understand some of the other user reviews here which complain of poor image quality. I have found the camera to be very responsive, of course with an excellent wide angle/ large zoom and macro combination, and produces very good image quality for outdoor/ good light conditions. For indoor shots I had some initial problems with 'white out' faces .

  • Excerpt: The people below me giving this camera such bad rating i dont understand what they are doing wrong. This camera is one of the best in this small handpocket size. When i was in the store looking for a camera all the Ixus 70/75 was out but the manager said this camera was better due to more optical zoom, 28-200mm angle vs ixus regular one and a good lcd screen.

  • Excerpt: Somewhat inconsistent image quality and a poorly positioned flash let down what in theory could have been a super camera. Grainy and badly exposed results with poor white balance mar a number of shots, especially interiors. However, it is fast to start up, has good zoom range and is very small making it a very convenient camera to have with you at all times. Potential back-up for a DSLR.

  • Summary: 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.
