Question about Ricoh Caplio R6 Digital Camera

1 Answer

A small dark blob, exactly circular, translucent, fuzzy outline, which is on every pic.

This annoying blemish is in the same place (centre line, right side). It's not something on the lens and no camera setting adjustment will affect it. It appeared recently for no apparent reason. Camera is less than 12 months old. Any ideas?

    Translucent blob on images shows up under bright or sunny conditions. Have had to correct some very detailed photos by using photoshop. Started out of the blue and seems to be a defect or smug of some type on the lens. Camera is coming up to 1 year old and has been used very little. I thought it might have started after going through the airports xray system as I only noticed it last month after processing my holiday shots. Thought it was dust, but looks more like an oil smudge on one of the internal lenses.

    Yes...I have used and enjoyed this camera enormously(!)...but now i have to photoshop every image to remove the circular dark spot which now lives in the lower right quarter of the frame. he new R10 is considerably cheaper than the original price of the R6 and more highly specified, so unless a free or very cheap fix can be performed, I suppose that a repair is uneconomical....Please RICOH....what should we do??

Smudge on pictures


Yes, if you have used different lenses and a smudge still appears (in the same place) there may be something on your sensor. Have you cleaned or touched the sensor in the past? Typically sensors only get dust (shows up as small fuzzy dark spots) on the sensor, not smudges.

Night time pic mode


The one thing I have noticed about the DV179, is that it takes poor quality photos and video, unless it is in pure sunshine... :)

Yes, zooming in does distort the pic's, so be sure to put the stabilization mode to 'on', this does help a bit.
