A great little camera - AMAZING MACRO SHOTS!,
By A Customer
This review is from: Ricoh Caplio RR 30 Digital Camera (Camera)
For a cheap digicam, this one does the biz. It's very pocketable without being too tiny, and works well with automatic settings although it also has manual focus and manual exposure adjustment, should you require them, so its good if you want to take ceative control! Takes excellent crisp shots which I think look fine printed off at A4, although it's a 3mp camera. Colours are vivid and realistic.
But the BEST thing about this camera is the MACRO, you can get as close as 1cm (and I reckon even closer - basically it will focus up to the point where the subject is touching the front of the lens!) I've got some great shots of caterpillars, insects etc, and you can see every hair on their horrid little bodies so any entomolgists out there, BUY THIS CAMERA if you can find it! Sadly it's been discontinued but find it second hand or look into Ricoh's new models.
I've rated this camera 5 star cos it was so good for the price and performs very well for a 3mp.
