To decide which mobile phone I want is a real hassle (I want 3G, WLAN, GPS and PDA-functions, all in one), but when I started searching for a camera, I instantly found what I was looking for. Behold, Ricoh Caplio R3:
It has 7.1X optical zoom, 5 megapixel and it’s very portable (ca 160g including battery). Read more at Ricoh.
The camera is newly released and I have not yet found a price for it nor a review (other than those “reviews” that only read aloud from the product brochure). The only downside would be a lack of manual configuration – it only offers a set of “scenes”. If you know more than me about this camera, or can offer a decent alternative, don’t hesitate to comment.
