Ricoh Caplio R1 Review


The recommended retail price of the Ricoh Caplio R1 in the UK is £199 and in Europe it is 299,00 €

Ricoh seem to have taken one step forward and two steps back with the Caplio R1. Image quality has dramatically improved in comparison with previous Ricoh models, with only soft out-of-camera images spoiling a great perfomance (which is easy to fix...

Owners Opinion: Ricoh Caplio R2 (linelucie, 25 Mar 06)


I had my mind set on a fuji F10 but my local dealer somewhat pushed a caplio R2. So, I left the shop a proud owner of a beautiful, sturdy-looking 5mp camera. It wasn't long before I realized that the pixes it took just didn't compare in terms of...

No real problem. But camera isn't up to what I expected with twice and a half as many pixels as the Fuji

Owners Opinion: Ricoh Caplio R1V (tom boycott, 22 Jul 05)


I bought the camera 5 months ago and have taken a few thousand photos. It is very fast - much faster than the previous digital camera I had, and the controls are very easy to use. Also it is extremely small and light. Except for the problems listed...

In low light, because of the small lens, the photos are not sharp, maybe because of the low shutter speed. Also the flash is pretty useless unless the subject is close. Finally the zoom is really not enough

It is a nice camera - small, wide zoom, AA batteries applicable, has many features

Poor image quality in bad light conditions

Owners Opinion: Ricoh Caplio R1V (jpullen, 14 Jun 05)


I paid about £200 for this camera and for that sort of money it seems really good. It took a little while to get used to using a P&S (I have a DSLR as my main camera) but now feel quite used to it. It's excellent 'near instant' image capture time -...

The only thing I'm not really impressed with is the flash. Your subject needs to be at just the right distance away or they are completely washed out. I assume this must be true of most P&S cameras though as the flash aperture is so small ; The power...

I bought this camera after a lot of research and with a few "must-haves" in mind : wide angle (28mm equivalent), 4x optical zoom minimum, AA-format batteries, included charger and rechargeable battery, time-lapse, fast response time and optical...
