Ricoh Caplio R6

 

Is this the best all-round compact camera on the market?

The Ricoh Caplio R6 is a fantastically versatile all-round camera, an improvement in almost every way on the already impressive R5, offering a winning combination of style, build quality, performance and image quality. It is loaded with more features...

Ricoh Caplio R6 Black review

 

Ricoh plays for keeps in both the wide and telephoto stakes

Very good price ; Good range of features

Minor picture flaws on close inspection

Another solid effort from Ricoh. It's quick to respond, while delivering sharply focused images 99% of the time

Ricoh Caplio R6 compact digital camera

 

The word ‘awesome' has lost a lot of its impact, but it's more than justifiable to use it when summing up the Ricoh Caplio R6. The unbelievably compact Ricoh Caplio R6 boasts not only a 35mm equivalent 28-200mm zoom lens, but an array of old and new...

If you're after a point-and-click camera, then the Ricoh Caplio R6 isn't for you. The shutter lag is dreadful but, admittedly, can be improved by turning off the shake correction. But if you want a pocket-sized zoom camera that can handle virtually any...

Ricoh impresses with the sexy slimline design of the 7MP R6 model.

Ricoh - Caplio R6

 

Ricoh's Caplio R6 is billed as 'The world's thinnest digital camera with a 28mm wide-angle, 7.1x optical zoom lens'. So if a thinner camera with a 29mm wide-angle, 7.1x optical zoom lens came along, it presumably ...

The Caplio R6 is a very well specified digital compact camera that's easy to use and provides useful assistance in getting good shots. While it's not as foolproof as Ricoh might like us to believe, the extra range of the lens in particular sets it...

Ricoh Caplio R6

 

The Ricoh Caplio R6 Digital Camera is the world's smallest digital camera with a wide angle 7.1x optical zoom lens, it has a 7 megapixel sensor, a 2.7 inch screen, and high ISO settings.

Very compact and stylish with a solid metal body (will easily fit in pockets) - smaller than previous models ; Built in Vibration Reduction image stabilisation helps acheive blur free low-light / zoom photos ; Larger 2.7" screen, with 230,000 pixels ;...

The Ricoh Caplio R6 has improved on the Ricoh Caplio R5 in a number of ways, most noticable is the camera's smaller, more stylish body, and larger screen, the improved zoom control is also a very welcome addition. Image quality is very good, especially...

Ricoh Caplio R6 Black

 

With manufacturers falling over themselves to differentiate their compacts from the alternatives, Ricoh's update of the R5, the R6, is cumbersomely described as 'the world's thinnest camera with a 28mm wide angle, 7.1x optical zoom lens'

Very good price, Good range of features

Minor picture flaws on close inspection

Another solid effort from Ricoh. It's quick to respond, while delivering sharply focused images 99% of the time

Ricoh Caplio R6

 

Ricoh's 7.1 zoom model is a slim delight at a good price

a few image-quality niggles are all let down this otherwise delightfully simple incredibly specified point and shoot.

Ricoh Caplio R6

 

Match a fast 7x optical zoom with a 28mm wide angle lens, throw in killer looks and you have the perfect recipe for a must-have compact.

7.1x optical zoom; That zoom is very fast; 28mm wide angle; Stylish design; Simple to use; Face recognition focus

Flash fairly weak

There are some great features on the Caplio R6, starting off with the design which is stylish and modern. The zoom is great, really one of the fastest we've seen on a compact, and tied in to a 28mm wide angle setting, really gets the camera off to a...
