Ricoh Caplio R1V review

I bought the camera 5 months ago and have taken a few thousand photos. It is very fast - much faster than the previous digital camera I had, and the controls are very easy to use. Also it is extremely small and light. Except for the problems listed below I have been very happy with camera.Battery life is great and it uses SD cards which are now becoming very cheap.The wide angle is a great feature.

Problems:

In low light, because of the small lens, the photos are not sharp, maybe because of the low shutter speed. Also the flash is pretty useless unless the subject is close. Finally the zoom is really not enough.
