Rugged design, waterproof, GPS functionality, Bluetooth and wireless

Noise and colour reproduction not quite up to scratch, chunky design

While it has its share of flaws, the combination of rugged, waterproof design with GPS capabilities and an 8 megapixel sensor makes the Ricoh Caplio 500SE an attractive proposition for outdoors photographers.

Ricoh Caplio 500SE


This is one of those 'everything but the kitchen sink' cameras, featuring a wide-angle 3x optical zoom lens, rugged waterproof body and Bluetooth or Wi-Fi image transfer.

Good wide-angle lens, Handy rubberised body

Too much picture noise, Very expensive, Limited waterproofing

An interesting all-in-one offering, but the price is bordering on the ridiculous
