I bougt Caplio R1V after long time of thoughts and discussion and got many good advices. The first days I was proud Caplio owner. Few days later I was Caplio owner in doubt. Months later I was dissapointed Caplio owner. Today I know perpectly how grainy and dark photos look. My kids can play with the camera as they want to, and there will be no harm if they drop it on the floor.

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 ...

I paid about £200 for this camera and for that sort of money it seems really good. It took a little while to get used to using a P&S (I have a DSLR as my main camera) but now feel quite used to it. It's excellent 'near instant' image capture time - what-you-snap-is-what-you-get - is excellent and the 4.8 zoom is also good. The body is solid and feels good in the hand and I image could withstand a few bashes. The macro function is excellent, but obviously requires a steady hand. Overall, I ...

I bought this camera after a lot of research and with a few "must-haves" in mind : wide angle (28mm equivalent), 4x optical zoom minimum, AA-format batteries, included charger and rechargeable battery, time-lapse, fast response time and optical viewfinder. The only other small cameras which come close are the Canon Powershot S60/70 which are much more expensive. Things I would have liked are manual, AP/SP programme exposure and USB2 connectivity. The first one I got had a fault where it would ...

The Good: Ultra small size fits easily in any pocket Lens protector completely covers lens protecting it when the camera is in your pocket Fastest lag time I have seen (you press the button, and it basically instantly clicks the photo) Cool and crazy features (ex. unmanned auto incremental shooting for timelapse type photos) Menu and buttons are logical clear and easy to use Bright clear display Uses 2 AA batteries or the lithium pack (I have only used AA with good results) Good software - ...

================== SUMMARY ================== GOOD POINTS: 28mm wide-angle (not found in any other ultra-compact, found in only one compact, I think). 135mm tele-zoom. Low-light auto focus: very fast, very reliable. Zero light photos: successfully takes good photos in COMPLETE darkness (with a flash), & does it very quickly (ie no problems with auto-focus in zero-light conditions) Voice recording is very useful & very good; can save just over 2min of audio per MB of card space. Movie ...

Outdoor photos in full sun look good. good features and option. With no zoom photos are great however. Great wide angle lense Problems: indoor photos very grainy. indoor photod with zoom and flash are dark and grainy. flash is far too weak motion photos are blurry and with higher ISO are grainy. don't think about motion in low light. lense should be 2.8 min, not 3.3. If you are considering this camera, think harder. Take if for a test drive, particularly in low light. All cameras are ...
