Ricoh R8 compact digital camera
Ricoh R8 has reviewed the new compact digital camera from Ricoh called R8. This stylish camera features a new high-resolution 10 mega pixel CCD, 7.1x optical zoom (28-200mm equivalent) and a 2.7″ screen with a resolution of 460,000 pixels.

Dpreview ends up giving the Ricoh R8 camera a “recommended” rating, but it seems like this camera has quite a few shortcomings. The camera has a pretty harsh noise reduction that smears the details even at low ISO and the focus is not the best. The built in flash is also a pretty bad performer.
The best things about this camera is the stylish retro look and the compact size for its zoom range.
