Ricoh Caplio R1V review

+++
1. good batery life (AA) im using 1800 or normal alkalines
2. superb speed
3. 28mm lens
4. AL body (little heavy but i like it)
5. design, construction
6. great macro performance (manual focus)
7. quite good menu
8. time interval of shooting (1sec-24hrs!)

Problems:

- - -
1. when capacity of batteries is down you cant do anythig wiht open lens! no warning of capacity. (try tu use no NIMH accu)
2. big compression of images (jpeg) >> too noisy (no tiff!)
3. purple frining in edges on 28mm (or hi aperture)
4. autofocus have problems in low light conditions, but not so bad
5. flash is weak in corners when using 28mm (its logic...) and have a small distance
