Ricoh packs a decent 4MP CCD into a slim (30mm) case, touts the major
selling points for this level of camera, but just doesn’t impress

Summary: Ricoh's Caplio RZ1 comes with six clip-on face plates that let you match the camera to your mood or outfit. Designed for ease of use, it has six scene settings (portrait, sports, landscape, might scene, text and high-sensitivity) plus a small real time histogram display. . .
Pros: Fast start-up, 0.15 second shutter lag, Macro focusing to 1cm, Good dynamic range in outdoor shots
Cons: Weak flash, Edge softening in many shots, Below average auto white balance [BG05]
