In many ways this is a great camera. I'll first say what is good about it and then what isn't. Good: 1. fast startup, 2. almost no shutter lag, 3. 4.8 times zoom, 4. good resolution, 5. excellent battery life (six hours on playback or 500 shots), 6. accepts AA batteries, 7. supercompact (considering 4.8x zoom and AA batteries), 8. well built, 9. big screen, 10. good looking, 11. wide angle (=28mm) The bad point is NOISE! If not for this then it would be the perfect compact camera.

I am very pleased with this camera. I bought it for my daughter who quickly understood most of the functions. The large LCD display is great for instant replays and works OK with a bit of practice for composing shots. The only draw back is in strong sunlight when you have to create some shadow to view (no optical view finder). She loves the multi frame option and the macro. The 4.8 optical zoom is very useful. All settings are clearly indicated with useful icons. The Li battery lasts for ages and the AA dry cell option when charging is perfect. The R2 was sold to us as a great camera for someone who doesn't want a huge amount of creative options, but wants quick shots and easy replay. The bundled software doesn't work. Use Adobe.

I love the Ricoh Caplio R2 digital camera. I've had it for several months and have taken many pictures some of which I've blown up to 8x10 with great results. No complaints about this camera!

After using it over the summer I can confirm that the wide zoom range is of big value in many situations. The limitations are : noise at higher ISO settings so I use fixed '100' but have to cope with motion blur because the camera has no image stabilizer. I miss a 640x480 option for motion pictures and find the firmware limitation most annoying. Finally the size of the JPEG compressed image files on the flash card is fixed (limited) for every image size. That leads to unnecessarily distorted images if highly noisy objects like trees are captured because the firmware compresses the image until it fits. Obviously this is done to achieve a 'remaining image capacity counter' - too bad. Other than that, I most enjoy this small digital camera.
