  • 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. Image quality is mixed, sometimes it nails it, great colours, sharpness and good control of CA.

  • 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. You'll have to reduce the 10MP image to 7MP or so to make it look clean.

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. However, I should have seen the warning signs with the first one - which had been repaired under warranty for an issue with a sticking telescopic lens housing.

Megazoom mit kleinen Schwächen

  • Summary: Mein Bericht zur Ricoh R8 (Nein, sie heißt nicht mehr Caplio. Ich hab das nicht vergessen ;)) Die R8 sollte als Geschenk dienen, zu Weihnachten 2008. Gefragt war eine Kamera als Ersatz für eine betagte Nikon 2100 (Akkudeckel lose, Selbstentladung der Akkus, kleines Display, ständig verstelltes Modusdrehrad). Außerdem sollte ein gescheiter Zoom ran. Die Nikon S10 gab's nun nicht mehr, einen direkten Nachfolger auch nicht.
  • Pros: 7x Zoom mit Weitwinkel, Bedienung
  • Cons: Nachtbilder nicht einfach, Bildqualität allgemein
