LetsGoDigital review the 5 megapixel Ricoh Caplio R2 – the updated version of the Ricoh Caplio R1v.
“Ricoh enhanced their series of Caplio digital cameras with the introduction of the new Ricoh Caplio R2 in March 2005. The new Caplio R2 looks a lot like its brother, the Caplio R1, but the new model can definitely compete with the competitors of the 5 Megapixel class. The Ricoh R2 is beautifully designed and the housing has a nice finishing touch. Something that immediately draws the attention is the enlargement of the monitor on the back of the camera. Compared to the Caplio R1’s 1.8 inch monitor, the difference is vast; the 2.5 inch monitor on the Caplio R2 has a great size and an adjustable brightness. The buttons next to the large sized monitor have been re-arranged.”
