Ricoh Caplio GX100 Review

 

Announced back in March the Ricoh Caplio GX100 is officially the successor to the GX8, but it could equally well be described as a zoom version of the flagship GR-D, as it shares a very similar design, feature set and interface. The GX100 has several...

Excellent resolution, fairly good corner sharpness even at 24mm equiv. Unusual and creatively versatile 24-72mm equiv. zoom range Low distortion for such a wide lens Fast F2.5 maximum aperture at wide end of zoom Dual control dials and customizable...

Noise and noise reduction issues at all sensitivity settings over ISO 80 - ISO 400 and up pretty much unusable for anything beyond a small print JPEG output a little soft, especially at smaller apertures Default settings produce rather 'over processed'...

You've got to admire Ricoh, one of the oldest names in the photo market, for taking the kind of risks bigger players aren't able - or willing - to take, producing niche products that are designed by people who obviously understand photography and the...

Ricoh Caplio GX100 review

 

Many photographers dream of a compact digital camera with a fine zoom range, including a true wide-angle, one that gives a high resolution and can also store images in RAW. Until recently this remained just a dream. But fortunately there is the...

When Ricoh announced the GX100, I waited impatiently for my turn to review the camera. It has everything I am personally looking for in a compact camera. A true wide-angle but also zoom, RAW support, image stabilization, a fine resolution and a sturdy...

Ricoh Caplio GX100 Review

 

The Ricoh Caplio GX100 is a wide and fairly slim compact digital camera that just about fits into the palm of my average sized hands, measuring 111.6 mm (W) x 58.0 mm (H) x 25.0 mm (D) and weighing around 220g. Utilising an aluminium alloy body, it's...

The Ricoh Caplio GX100 is an excellent attempt to satisfy the needs of what is quickly becoming something of a niche market - a pocketable compact camera with advanced options for the thinking photographer. At a time when most manufacturers are...

Camera Test: Ricoh Caplio GX100

 

Ricoh, that merry maverick of the camera world, has taken another step in the "luxe compact" category with the Caplio GX100 ($599, exclusively at Adorama), essentially a zoom-lensed version of the Ricoh GR Digital we tested in May 2006, with the added...

Object of Desire: Ricoh Caplio GX100

 

Pocket-sized and pro-worthy aren't always a contradiction in terms.

The only drawback is that its 10MP image sensor is pretty noisy above ISO 400. But you can't win them all

Ricoh Caplio GX100 Digital Camera Review

 

In matter of design, Ricoh Caplio is not much for a camera, but as performance, at the quality-price rapport, it stands out good. There's no optical viewfinder on the Ricoh Caplio GX100, but there's a removable optional electronic viewfinder which...

Expert Review

 

Ricoh's Caplio GX100 is a high end camera for experienced users. While average photographers may not fully appreciate the wide angle shooting and extremely crisp shots it produces, there is no doubt it's a great camera if you can afford it.

Wide angle shooting, Smooth design, Funky accessories, Sharp pictures

Some noise problems, Expensive
