Record Screens & Menus



Ricoh Caplio RR1

A typical record screen with most of the onscreen icons showing. I am not crazy about Ricoh's choice of the pinkish color as it is often hard to see against other screen colors.



Ricoh Caplio RR1

As with most digicams you half-press the shutter release to activate the autofocus system and set the exposure. When the camera has locked the AF the "+" mark in the center of the LCD turns green as shown above.



Ricoh Caplio RR1

In Continuous mode you can record a series of images at high speed, the table below shows the approximate number of images that can be captured in each size and quality mode. Uncompressed mode can not be used with Continuous mode. White balance, focus and exposure are locked with the first frame. The color LCD is not active when capturing in Continuous mode.

When the Macro mode is engaged the focal length is fixed for optimal closeups with minimal distortion and the lens can focus as close as 1cm !



Ricoh Caplio RR1

The special Text recording mode uses high contrast and monochrome mode to copy text documents and saves it in TIFF format in 2272x1704 or 1120x840 size. The contrast is settable between -2, -1, 0, +1, +2.



Ricoh Caplio RR1

The RR1 can capture full motion video with audio at 288x216 resolution and saves it in standard Windows AVI format. The length of movie clips is limited only by the amount of available memory. As with most digicams, the zoom can not be used in Movie mode as its sound would be captured.



Ricoh Caplio RR1

Exposure value override is from +2 to -2EV in 1/4EV steps, the changes can be seen in realtime on the color LCD screen.



Ricoh Caplio RR1

White balance options include Auto, Sunny, Cloudy, Incandescent, Fluorescent or Manual with individual adjustment of both red and blue. As with the exposure value adjustment the setting changes can be seen in realtime on the LCD.



Ricoh Caplio RR1

Voice recorder mode. Use the camera just like a digital voice recorder. Audio clips are limited in length only by the amount of memory available.
