Ricoh Caplio R8Trusted Reviews have reviewed the new Ricoh Caplio R8 – a 10 megapixel update to the R7 – it features a newly designed body available in black or silver, a wide angle 7.1x optical zoom lens (28 – 200mm equivalent), image stabilisation, ISO 1600, 2.7″ screen with 460k pixels, and a 1cm macro mode. The camera is available in Two-tone Silver and Black or Black for £239:

“Most other 10-megapixel compact cameras use the larger 1/1.8-inch or 1/1.7-inch sensor size, however Ricoh has squeezed an extra two megapixels onto the same small 1/2.3-inch size CCD as the R7. While this does give larger pictures and potentially better detail resolution, it has a costly trade-off in colour depth and dynamic range (the ability to capture both shadow and highlight detail in the same shot) and also increased image noise. ”
