    Hi,
    I was looking at advert for the Ricoh Caplio R3 camera and it seems it would
    fill the bill for me.
    On a limited budget of just over £200. I really want the extra long zoom
    that this camera has and
    the smallness to fit in jacket pocket.
    What I am wondering is can I expect decent results from it. Is the lens any
    good.
    I would appreciate comments from anyone who has used one.
    Many thanks,
    Jim (UK)

    Me too!!

    I've found a few reviews - looks fine for amateurs. Some reviewers complain
    about 'noise' - but that's no concern for me - I never print bigger than
    10x8.

    I'm really taken by the 7X optical zoom, the pocket size, and the
    'anti-shake' technology. Excellent macro capacity is just a bonus.

    Cost in Australia $549 AUD is the best I can find. (RRP $599 AUD).

    Appreciate your comments. I'm beginning to have doubts because of the noise
    problem. I have read similar reports in other reviews.

    stay away from this one. i just got it and would like to sell it right
    away. the noise is not acceptable even on ISO 100 setting. buy it
    only if you can return it.
