ThinkCamera reviews the Ricoh RR730 (rating: 6/10) and writes;
“Like the RR660 this really isn’t a bad camera. Yes image quality could be better, yes battery life could be longer. But if what you really want is a cheap camera to shoot snaps on then it’s probably one of the best value cameras you will see. It’s also a great camera for somebody who struggles with all the modes and buttons on some of the other “entry level” cameras. It’s simple enough that you can take it ff automatic mode and start taking control without it getting confusing. If you want something that will produce the odd picture you can hang on your wall then consider spending a little more. “
PersonalComputerWorld reviews the Ricoh RR730 (rating: 3/5) and writes;
“We were a little disappointed with the image quality from the Caplio RR730. While it’s acceptable for snaps and even enlargements, other cameras such as Ricoh’s own Caplio R5, produced far better pictures from their seven megapixels, with considerably lower noise and better edge clarity…Overall: An inexpensive, yet well-built camera that’s very easy to use. But consider spending a little more if you’re after the best image quality”
