  • 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: 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.

a good quality camera

  • Excerpt: This is a very good camera for taking pictures with easily and of good quality. It is much better than a lot of small sigital cameras, and if you want to take landscapes then the wide angle lens is very useful.
  • Pros: very good for the money, good quality pictures
  • Cons: doesn't feel as well made as some cameras .

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.

  • Summary: ich spare mir jetzt unendliche technische detailaufzählungen, die kann jeder nachlesen. PRO ich habe mit meiner ricoh schon einige atemberaubende fotos gemacht, sowohl schnappschüsse aus der hüfte, als auch schwierigere aufnahmen mit ein bischen zeit und spielen an den einsetellungen.

Megazoom mit kleinen Schwächen

RGTech, Ciao
16 December 2008
  • Excerpt: Mein Bericht zur Trotz meiner guten Erfahrungen mit Nikon gab der 7fache Weitwinkelzoom der R8 den Ausschlag, nicht zuletzt aufgrund eines identischen Preises mit der S560 bei einem lokalen Anbieter.
  • Pros: 7x Zoom mit Weitwinkel, Bedienung
  • Cons: Nachtbilder nicht einfach, Bildqualität allgemein

Die Ricoh R8 hat beim Filmen nur Digitalzoom

  • Summary: Ich hatte mich bei der Ricoh R8 über den Weitwinkel (bei Kleinbild 28-200 mm) und die Makroaufnahmen ab 1 cm gefreut. Auch kann man viele manuelle Einstellungen vornehmen, was für eine Kompaktkamera nicht selbstverständlich ist. Super finde ich die Möglichkeit, Zeitrafferfotos zu machen.
