The new R8 is the successor model to the Caplio R7 which also had a slim body and 7.1x optical wide-angle zoom lens (28200 mm in 35 mm focal length). By combining a new 10 megapixel CCD with the earlier models popular Smooth Imaging Engine III image processing engine, the R8 takes high-definition photography to a higher level.

In addition to the specification improvements, the R8 has also undergone a complete redesign. This new model combines ease of use and technical specification in a body that is contemporary and stylish and has been designed based on a concept, A tool you want to use every day. In creating the R8 as a tool for taking photographs, great care has been given not only to styling and coloring but also to its operability, portability, comfort in hand, and its solid, high-quality feel. The R8 contains Ricohs original CCD-shift vibration correction function which compensates for camera shake when it is detected. This reduces the blurring that tends to occur in situations such as telephoto and macro photography.

Its a good price.

There is a ]review at dpreview.com which ends with:

Overall conclusionI can honestly say that I very much enjoyed using the … Overall conclusionI can honestly say that I very much enjoyed using the Ricoh R8 while working on this review but I'll also quote Johann Wolfgang von Goethe who once wrote: 'There is strong shadow where there is much light'. So, if you are thinking about purchasing an R8 I recommend you make an effort and read this entire review to make sure the camera matches your requirements and does not shade your photographic ventures with one of its shortcomings.

I have one of these. The camera is really good, it's really small but still has a massive zoom. The zoom changes from telephoto to wide really quickly, and the macro at ~1cm is amazing. The anti-shake function (I am always sceptical of such features) actually does work. My only criticism is that the camera takes slightly "grainy" looking pictures at night.

alot of camera for the money, but not without its issues. That said, it is still alot better than many other cameras at this price.

Voted hot

Proper Bargain :thumbsup:

good price.Almost bought one when it was still 180

Yes!!! Brilliant deal... no doubt... H&R to the OP...

Is R7 any good? I take lot of night shots (well indoors with flash, parties, etc) and would prefer a camera that took good night shots (i.e. using the flash).

Can R7 take good pictures? Thanks. I need to buy a camera before going on my holiday on the 22/11/2008.

Thanks. Robie.
