Ricoh Caplio 500G review

I bought this camera for its rugged, waterproof construction to take on an expedition to Antarctica in December 06. I was very glad I did as it allowed me to take photos on bouncing, splashing Zodiacs without concern. We also had some wet and windy weather. On the way to Ushuaia for our ship's departure we went to the Iguacu falls and on one of the 2 days we had tropical downpours. The Ricoh was the only camera I could use and gave me some interesting images. A bit of judicious postprocessing provided excellent A4 prints.
