A digital camera such as the Ricoh Caplio R2 reveals high expectations. As I mentioned before, it sure is a pity that Ricoh didn’t equip the Caplio R2 with setting possibilities like aperture and shutter priority. An enhancement like this would enlarge the target group of possible users, in my opinion. On the other hand I must admit that the Ricoh Caplio R2, although being an automatic digital camera, has a lot of astonishing features and settings. Various settings support the automatic setting under different situations. The video clip function stays behind compared to the competitors. Currently we find possibilities like VGA or higher resolution or even 60 images per second, but the Ricoh Caplio has a poor 320 x 240 pixels as its maximum video resolution.
