Ricoh R8

 

Sturdy compact with a wide-angle lens

Sturdy and sophisticated design, 28-200mm lens with stabilisation, incredible LCD display

Noise very prominent at ISO 400 and above, some oversharpening

While the Ricoh R8 offers a few excellent features such as the 28-200mm lens and the brilliant LCD screen, its images have a few issues that mean it may not be right for everyone.

Ricoh R8 review

 

Is Ricoh's compact finally up to taking on the big boys?

Fantastic picture quality ; Lots of features ; Great fun to use

No RAW support ; Flash creates blue tint in photos

The R8 is a lovable eccentric, quirky yet impressive camera. It’s not as polished as we’d like, and its results can be unreliable. However, if you look past its shortcomings then it’s a highly capable and inspiring compact – even if it doesn’t quite...

Ricoh R8 review

 

The Ricoh R8 is an overhauled version of last year's Caplio R7, which successfully placed a 7x zoom lens on the front of a pocket-sized camera body.

If you want a small camera with a big lens and screen, the Ricoh R8 is worth considering, especially if you need up to 7x optical zoom from a compact camera. A much improved rear screen adds to this sturdily built camera.

We've seen some beautiful R8s in our time, mostly Audis, but this isn't one of them. Fashion faux pas aside, though, this still is an impressive camera with some notable features. Ricoh R8 is tagged with Ricoh and camera. Select a tag (Ricoh, for...

Ricoh - R8

 

Back in September 2007, IT Reviews took a look at the Ricoh Caplio R6, then touted as ‘the world's thinnest digital camera'. Despite the prefix, the Ricoh R8 definitely doesn't fit into the same family. At ...

This isn't the sexiest compact camera in town, neither is it the cheapest. But if you can get past the outer aesthetics, the Ricoh R8 is a reliable, swift and, more importantly, intuitive model to use. Although it doesn't have the most durable casing,...
