  • Excerpt: I have had this little camera for 18 months now, so I thought it would be worth posting a review. The camera is on the whole well made. Nice metal body and sturdy controls. However there is a design fault with the LCD surround, which I will mention in the problems part.

  • Excerpt: I bought this on impulse because of the price £130 and the features. I liked the size of the camera, the long wide angle zoom, and the design of the camera. It all looked promising. When I got home I charged the battery and read the manual.

Ricoh R8 Digital Point and Shoot Camera

Sundye, Rate it all!
16 August 2008
  • Summary: While I am having Nikon SLR D200 for sophisticated situations, the Panasonic Lumix TZ1 used to be an excellent gear for my "point and shoot" purposes. I have been happy in every aspect except that it is little bit too bulky to carry around to meet instant shooting needs.

  • Excerpt: This camera is pretty and compact, with lots of features and a simple interface ... but the image quality is not very good. Problems: The high resolution images are really noisy at 100 ISO. The finest JPEG compression isn't very fine at all.

Good, but not sure about build quality

  • Summary: I bought this to replace a previous Ricoh (which met an accident on the beach). I chose both on the basis of really good reviews, and also chose the second one on the good results seen with my first one.
