PhotographyBlogRicoh Caplio R5 review at PhotographyBLOG : DIWA member Mark Goldstein from PhotographyBLOG has reviewed the Ricoh R5 digital compact camera. The Ricoh Caplio R5 camera features a CCD with effective 7.24 million pixels and a 28-200 mm 7.1x wide-angle zoom lens. Furthermore, the Ricoh Caplio R5 includes an Auto Resize function that automatically changes the image size when shooting at 7M size and zooming in excess of 200 mm optical. This enables high zoom photography of up to 34.1x1 (equivalent to 960 mm) at high image quality without image correction processing. The RIcoh R5 has a 2.5-inch LCD with 230,000 pixels. The camera’s macro mode allows close in shooting of objects from a wide macro 1 cm to tele macro 14 cm.
Ricoh R5 review at PhotographyBLOGRicoh Caplio R5 - Image quality
According to Mark Goldstein: "The Ricoh Caplio R5's image quality is average. The Ricoh Caplio R5's main drawback in terms of image quality is noise, with ISO 200 showing some noise, particularly in shadow areas. The noise gets progressively worse as you go from ISO 200 to ISO 400 and finally the completely unusable ISO 800 and 1600 settings. The Ricoh Caplio R5 did handle chromatic aberrations quite well, however, with limited purple fringing effects appearing in high contrast situations."

Ricoh R5 camera - ISO and Chromatic aberration
Mark continues: "The new image processing system promises low noise and an expanded ISO range, but whilst the R5 does offer ISO 1600, you really won't want to use, or for that matter ISO 800. In fact, the R5's images are still as noisy as the R4's - the move to 7 megapixels seems to have offset any processing gains that Ricoh's engineers have made. There is one image quality improvement, which comes in the form of much less obvious chromatic aberrations and purple fringing." You want to learn more about the Ricoh Caplio digital camera?

About PhotographyBLOG
Mark Goldstein started his very active website PhotographyBLOG in January 2003. At first the one and only purpose was to let this site function as one of those popular web logs with Photography as main topic. But as we all know Photography is a pretty big subject to publish about so Mark decided to focus on some hot key points like mentioning all new introductions, reviews, reports from events like PMA and Photokina, sharing some impressive and creative photos and Mark's sole perspective of his feeling about this fascinating world of Digital Imaging. Mark is based in the UK, but his eagle-eye focuses global.
