Kev.'s review of Ricoh RR-30

★★★★★

“Several friends & colleagues have been getting digital...”

Written on: 20/11/2002 by Kev. (1 review written)

Good Points
Very easy to start-up & use. Lightweight. Good pictures. Wide range of features. Excellent help line.

Bad Points
On receipt of camera the supplied batteries didn't have enough power to complete set up - fine once rechargeables up to strength.

General Comments
Several friends & colleagues have been getting digital cameras over the past few months - I held on until the RR30 came along. It has all the features of more expensive models whilst maintaining simplicity & ease of use. The results are just as impressive. I've had the opportunity to test results in a variety of situations - from kids parties, live sports events, in & outdoor - even getting good pics from our fireworks on Nov 5th! You need to practice a bit with the flash facility otherwise pics can come out with too much contrast or exagerated shadows. This isn't too much of a problem - being digital, just delete & start again! Any queries I've had have been quickly sorted by the Ricoh helpline - very efficient. If you've got the right kit, pics on the highest resolution can be printed up to 800mm x 600mm quite comfortably. If you're looking for a digital camera under £250.00 get a Ricoh RR30 - BRILLIANT!

I got the camera from qvc shopping channel and find it small, light and easy to use. But have since found out there is software to be downloaded from ricoh web site to improve picture quality to eliminate blue tinge around edges of pictures and improved sability at start up, scandisk cards are not cheap a 128mb costs around £76. It has onboard memory 8mb to get you snapping, but for a 3.1 meg camera at a cost of £240 with excellent macro and a fast download to pc I would suggest try before you buy p.s im keeping this camera

The weak Flash has been fixed now :
V1.11
* The light intensity of the flash was strengthened somewhat.
* At the time of exposure revision, the light intensity of the flash that tried changes with flash ON.
