Ricoh Caplio R7 Review

 

The Ricoh Caplio R7 is a very compact digital camera that easily fits in the palm of your hand, measuring 99.6(W) x 55.0 (H) x 23.3mm (D) and weighing 161g with the battery and wrist-strap fitted. This is one camera that you truly won't notice carrying...

Just 6 months on from the R6 model, the new Ricoh R7 arrives, at first glance with very few new standout features. The increase in resolution from 7 to 8 megapixels doesn't make a lot of difference to your photos, but thankfully the new image...

Ricoh Caplio R7 Digital Camera Review

 

Ricoh Caplio R7 digital camera offers 8.1 megapixels and a 7.1x wide zoom lens (28-200mm), meaning that it will bring you more optical zoom than any other camera in this range. On the first view, I can say it has a very solid build. Around the back are...

Ricoh's R7 is a great compact camera for those after a speedy model with a big zoom and optical image stabilisation. There are units out there that take better pictures but this model is more than adequate in that regard.

Big zoom, stylish design, very fast

Some colour and noise issues

Ricoh Caplio R7

 

With a 28mm wide-angle and 7x zoom, this new Ricoh should be a popular camera.

Once again Ricoh demonstrates that in terms of technical ability and value for money, its cameras are among the best on the market. The Caplio R7 is an outstandingly versatile pocket compact with an unmatched list of features. It is stylish, well made,...

Ricoh Caplio R7 review

 

Ricoh may not be one of the big camera names, but when it comes to small snappers it offers excellent value for money. Can this 8MP live up to this pedigree?

Megapixels are a plenty, but the real selling point here is that impressive lens. It’s just a shame that some noise issues cloud matters

Ricoh Caplio R7 review

 

It'll make you stand out from the crowd

Excellent zoom range ; Good image quality

Some exposure issues ; Vibration control not the best

The Ricoh R7 is an attractive camera but it's not enough of a step forward from the R6 to tempt an upgrade

Ricoh Caplio R7

 

The Ricoh Caplio R7 is an outstanding compact camera, with all the features you could want packed into a sturdy, pocket-sized metal frame. It's not perfect and it's not cheap, but it is very much worth tracking down.

Wide angle lens ; Large zoom ; Joystick control

Jagged screen ; No aperture or shutter priority

Even at AU$549, the Ricoh Caplio R7 is an excellent compact that deserves a wider audience. The Canon Digital IXUS 860 IS may have sewn up the 8-megapixel, big screen and image stabilisation market, but for us, the R7's innovative mini joystick and...

Ricoh Caplio R7

 

The Ricoh Caplio R7 is a very interesting digital camera. It has 8 megapixels and a 7x wide, angle zoom lens. It has a few extra features when compared to other smaller compacts. Shutter lag times are low and I liked the test photos I managed to produce.

Shutter lag times, build quality, extra features, colours

Lowlight

"The Caplio R7 has an excellent specification and low shutter lag times. It worked well in most outdoor situations and I really like the colours. With a longer than standard wide angle, zoom lens this camera has a lot going for it."
