RicohRicoh Caplio R3 review at PhotographyBLOG : DIWA member Mark Goldstein from PhotographyBLOG has reviewed the Ricoh Caplio R3 digital camera. The Ricoh R3 features a 5 Megapixel CCD image sensor and incorporates an amazing 7.1x optical wide zoom, the largest in the compact class (28–200mm in 35mm camera), and vibration correction function. The lens was created by adopting the newly developed Double Retracting Lens System, an advance on the highly successful Retracting Lens System, the original lens storage system engineered by Ricoh. Whenever it detects excessive camera motion, the vibration correction system, based on a newly developed CCD shift method, moves the CCD in the opposite direction to counterbalance camera shake.
Ricoh Caplio R3 review at PhotographyBLOGRicoh R3 - Image quality
According to Mark Goldstein: "The Ricoh Caplio R3 maximum shutter speed is 8 seconds, which is fairly good if you're seriously interested in night photography. With anti shake turned on, the images are much sharper than with anti shake turned off. This feature really does seem to make a difference and could mean capturing a successful, sharp shot or missing the opportunity altogether. Macro performance allows you to focus as close as 1cm away from the subject, although there is a lot of lens distortion and shadowing at such a close distance."

Ricoh Caplio R3 - PhotographyBLOG review conclusion
Mark continues: "A camera that has a potentially winning combination of an anti-shake system and an extensive ISO range of 64-800. A camera that is easy-to-use, well-built and stylish in an understated kind of way. And a camera that that offers all this for less than £250. Noise at ISO 100, obvious chromatic aberrations, poor night shots - only the amazing macro mode and the anti-shake system are worth having. The Ricoh Caplio R3 could undoubtedly have caused a big splash if the image quality was up to scratch, I would have bought one myself! 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 weblogs 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.
