RicohRicoh Caplio R2 review : Ricoh enhanced their series of Caplio digital cameras with the introduction of the new Ricoh Caplio R2 in March 2005. The new Caplio R2 looks a lot like its brother, the Caplio R1, but the new model can definitely compete with the competitors of the 5 Megapixel class. The Ricoh R2 is beautifully designed and the housing has a nice finishing touch. Something that immediately draws the attention is the enlargement of the monitor on the back of the camera. Compared to the Caplio R1's 1.8 inch monitor, the difference is vast; the 2.5 inch monitor on the Caplio R2 has a great size and an adjustable brightness. The buttons next to the large sized monitor have been re-arranged.
Ricoh Caplio R2 reviewRicoh R2 camera - Caplio series
Some years ago Ricoh entered the digital camera market for the first time. And the past few years Ricoh introduced various series of Ricoh digital cameras, clearly aiming at different target groups. We saw Ricoh digital cameras with very extensive functions, even network connections. The current Ricoh Caplio line is clearly designed for a wide range of consumers, with its features like quick access, application of innovations and stylish designed housings.

Ricoh Caplio R2 camera - User friendly
The user friendliness is excellent. The camera can be operated with great ease and I am especially attracted to the menu. The rendition is colourful and well-organized at the same time and the Ricoh Caplio R2 enables navigating through the menu in a very fast manner. The large number of settings is divided in chapters, providing a great overview. The increased size of the buttons on the Ricoh R2, compared to the Ricoh R1, hasn't worked to the camera's disadvantage. The buttons had to shrink due to the application of a large LCD monitor, and they increased in number too. Some quick buttons are available, like the ADJ button which certainly adds to the user convenience.

Ricoh R2 digital camera - Speed
Ricoh already enjoys a good reputation concerning speed of automatic focus (AF) and the response of the release button when taking a picture. Ricoh enabled an ultra fast startup time for the Ricoh Caplio R2, 0.8 second, and combined with a shutter response of an incredibly speedy time of 0.06, we may come to the conclusion that we are dealing here with one of the fastest reacting digital compact cameras on today's market. Action images are a piece of cake for the new Ricoh R2 digital camera.
