Just spotted this on the Ricoh website, hadn't seen it mentioned here.

From a quick glance at the specs, the only difference I spotted from the R1 is the 5MP 1/2.5in sensor. Still 320x240 30fps video, no mention of manual or semi-auto exposure modes.

Indeed the R1v is the same camera as R1 but with a 5 MP sensor. The only other thing that I think is improved (not sure though) is that the R1v is a mass storage class USB device while R1 is not.

It also supports 1gb SD and has flash assist for low light focusing.

Are you sure about the focus assist lamp (or it uses the flash as such) All other Caplios use hybrid passive/active AF and don't need AF assistance in low light.

Yip, check out the official specs from the link on the news release for the R1v, it states under focusing - focus assist - and this is detailed at the foot of the release that the flash may fire just before the shot is taken in poor lighting conditions to help the focusing.
