To test the image stabilisation system, I took this shot hand-held using tungsten light at a range of focal lengths and shutter speeds.

----

Shooting at 1/17th of a second at a focal length of 10.9mm (equivalent to about 70mm) is 2 stops below the recommended hand-held speed, but the IS system has produced a nice sharp shot.

----

Shooting a 1/25th of a second at 33mm (equivalent to 200mm) is 3 stops too slow. This time the IS system can’t cope and the image is blurred by camera shake.

----

The metering system has coped well with this high contrast shot, preserving good shadow detail and some highlight detail, although there is some blue fringing.

----

This is a 100% crop of the top left corned of the previous shot, showing the blue fringes along the edges of the burned-out sky areas. To be fair most high-res compacts do this.

Mine gradually went wrong until it finally jammed up completely after only 7 months. I certainly won't ever be buying another Ricoh camera!
