Re: A Ricoh Caplio 400G Wide.
In reply to schaki, Feb 18, 2013

Seems to be quite well used. The 400G as well as the predecessor, the 300G both used same 3mp sensor which can be quite troublesome. At least I might guess that this 400G wide have taken many pictures so there is the chance that the sensor already is not in a very good condition.

In warm or birght daylight it should be visible however it suffer from the sensor-problem or not.

Ricoh can still replace it for free except for the cost to send it in to service but needs to find affected images on the memory card to fully understand that the problem exists. That's because the problem does usually not show up in their indoors-tests which probably not have tricky light conditions and not too warm air.
