Caplio RR1 ($699) has an interesting history, and kind of a
funny name too. It's a direct decendent of the RDC-7 camera, which
I reviewed back in 2000
(and wasn't thrilled with).
Pros: Excellent bundle, Great macro feature, Decent amount of manual controls, Very good photo quality outdoors, Impressive movie mode, Doubles as a personal voice recorder
Cons: Shadows are noisy in sample images, Shutter lag can be long, No real aperture and shutter speed controls, despite other manual controls, Lackluster battery life, Image transfer software leaves much to be desired, Not a fan of the layout of controls and "how it feels in my hands"
