A good DC many of us have been overlooked. We always talk of Canon, Nikon, Minolta and ....., but we seldom think of other brands like Ricoh. Luckily I find it in second hand market, but it perform exceptionally good. Merits: - accurate color - 1 cm super-macro - auxiliary shutter release button for vertical pic taking - large and swivel LCD which enable to take self portrait - unlimited length of movie clip with voice - unlimited length of voice recording - relatively cheap compared to ...

8 page review of this camera - I was given it to comment on - normally I review software, from a users prospective. The learning curve was steep. Found it to be a snapper of a cam http://www.softdeko.com/ . I had software to use it with, hence the review of the camera. See SoftDeko Reviewer for a fuller write up. Apologise for the plug... habit. Problems: Only three: Battery, adapter and the user guides.

Overall this digicam is good compared to its counterparts of similar technological age launched in late 2000 / early 2001. Picture quality is good except for night scene: noise is high if exposure is longer than 2 sec. Red & blue dots will be found in the picture. Snapshot focus is a smart and covenient setting, though you have to re-set it after turning off the camera Problems: Long delay when shifting from off-flash mode to automatic mode

I am a professional time lapse photographer and have been trying a range of cameras for this purpose. As a result I have specific needs from these digital cameras such as time lapse functionality and mass storage. I have had the i500 now for almost a year with only a few problems. Images are adequate for my purpose - surprizing for its little consumer lens. Its solid and takes the knocks of day to day use well. It is microdrive compatible which is a must for time lapse sequences. The built ...

I've tested this camera for 4 days and i my first opinion was excellent design.But after taking 40 pictures (half with flash) the akku was empty.Alltough charging takes only 60min a 2. Akku is required (next 50€) .The shock came after i transfered the pictures to my PC (this takes quit too long for USB) because almost half of the taken pictures had a real poor quality. It's not my first camera because i took about 2000 pictures with my Olympus C-990 already. I'm really sad that i sold this ...

I have had this camera, my first digital, for 6 months & am delighted with it in every way. I love the shape, so easy to slip in a pocket. Ease of use, image quality & features are all excellent. No problems with battery life but best to have two. No problems getting pictures but I prefer to use a card reader than the software. Great to close the screen & save battery power. I got a 128MB card & volume is amazing, never worry about space. Very robust metal casing. Problems: Shutter action is ...

*** SCHLECHT *** Diese Kamera hat mich Nerven gekostet. Das Handling ist sehr gewöhnungsbedürftig und ständig kommt man aus versehen an die Optik. Viel Zeit bleibt nicht um Fotos zu machen, weil man ständig am Wischen ist. Der Autofocus ist langsam, die Bilder längst nicht so scharf wie erwartet. Die Übertragung zum PC erweißt sich ebenfalls als absolut unbefriedigend. In der Kamera ist nur ein umgeleiteter Com-Port, also keine USB Schnittstelle. Die Übertragungsrate ist somit nahezu 10 mal ...
