The Ricoh Caplio R7 is a compact 8.15 megapixel digital camera with 7.1x optical zoom. The wide-angle 28mm lens gives perspectives impossible to capture with a 35mm camera and the Double Retracting LENS System makes space for the 28-200mm zoom lens. The macro mode lets you get as close as 1cm from your subject letting you get in on the finest details while AF target selection lets you fix your camera on a tripod and choose your focal points using buttons rather than moving the camera. This camera features superior image processing performace using Ricoh’s Smooth Imaging Engine III for clear and smooth images. The CCD-shift vibration correction function automatically adjusts for handshake giving clear and sharp images even when zoomed in and the face recognition mode automatically focuses on four faces in a single shot. This model features newer easy to use menues and ADJ button letting you easy choose and change your favorite shot settings. Other features include skew correction, three continuous shooting modes, PictBridge compatibility and various scene modes for great results in a variety of situations.

I have two with jammed lenses. One as the result of dropping it - fair enough - the other jammed twice, repaired under warranty the first time, but out of warranty the second time. Seems to be a common problem from other posts on the web.
