Bios Magazine has just posted their review on Ricoh Caplio R30. The Ricoh Caplio R30 equipped with a 5.7x optical wide zoom equivalent to 28-160mm in 35mm camera format with 5.13 megapixels CCD and 2.5-inch large-scale LCD
“Ricoh’s Caplio R30 is a relatively powerful digital camera packed into a very compact metal body. The 5-Megapixel model is very good feature wise, with quick access to options and speedy performance, but is let down by average image quality – expect high noise, soft focus, and purple fringing.
Pros: Solid build; easy to use; long & wide zoom; excellent macro mode
Cons: Average image quality; no image stabilisation; zoom locked to 7 steps”
