Unique Spy Cameras

If you want to be like James Bond, taking shots of your bloggers co-workers slacking off in a covert manner to show your boss why you deserve a promotion instead of them. You might need these cameras. Don’t expect the quality of commercial digital cameras with all the bells and whistles such as flash and a high megapixel count. You might get VGA-quality photos as found on entry-level cellphones. There is no word on pricing and availability at the moment. More pictures after the jump!

Review of Ricoh Caplio R5

RegHardware wrote a review of the Rico Caplio R5, which boasts a 7.24MP CCD, large 2.5 inch LCD display, Smooth Imaging Engine II, 26MB of internal memory, an SD/MMC card slot, and a powerful 7.1x optical wide zoom lens. Measuring 96mm x 55mm x 26mm, the camera is capable of taking up to 380 shots on a single charge. More images after the jump!

The long zoom, 7.24 megapixel CCD, stunning macro, compact size and image stabilization all help the R5 to justify £250 asking price, but as a package there’s just not enough it excels at to make it easy to recommend without reservations. Good but not great.
