12 of 12 people found the following review helpful 5.0 out of 5 stars Superb!!!!! ***** , This review is from: Ricoh Caplio R7 Compact Camera ( 8.29 MP,7 x Optical Zoom,2.7 -inch LCD ) (Electronics)
Performance Start-up is very quick considering that the large lens has to spin out, although it makes an alarming spidery creaking noise. The choice of fast zoom or slower, more precise zooming is a nice touch. The autofocus focuses with alacrity, although the multi-weighted focus is a bit random as to what it picks out. We quickly found it was better to switch to centre-weighted focus or use the reliable face detection system. The bright green focus assist lamp kept things in focus even in the dark. There is a tendency to underexpose by a stop or two, but the mini joystick makes adjusting the exposure compensation a breeze.
The R8 is a superb camera for all types of user but most especially for those who take a serious approach to photography. It is easy to use as a basic 'snapper' but it has a full range of sophisticated qualities often only found in larger more expensive models. It has a superb lens with a full range from wide angle to 7x telephoto that produces prints of high definition and quality. The 'Scene Mode' has 11 option including one of the best for macro with a close up of 3 cm.
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX35 is the successor to the FX33 , and on the surface, little has changed. What draws us to this stylish 10-megapixel point-and-shoot is the innovative wide-angle lens, developed by Leica. It also helps that it looks so sleek, but is it enough to charm £200 out of your pocket?
Where should we start with the all-singing, all-dancing Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX500? It's a 10.1-megapixel point-and-shoot with knobs on, plus features such as a touchscreen, wide-angle lens and HD video rammed into its blocky frame. We put this £225 snapper through its paces to see if it kept up the recent high standards of the Lumix range. Design Despite the fetching brushed aluminium face available in black or silver, the FX500 looks boxy and flat at the front. It's a different story at the back, where the sleek black plastic surface is dominated by a giant 76mm (3-inch) touchscreen.
