Ricoh GX200 Review

 

The Ricoh GX200 is virtually identical to the older GX100 in terms of its design, so a lot of the comments that we made in our review of that camera will be repeated here. You'd be hard-pressed to tell the GX200 and GX100 apart if you put them side by...

At first glance the GX200 seems very similar to it predecessor, but after a week's shooting it quickly becomes evident that this camera is much more refined, both in terms of speed and features - the only thing lacking is any improvement in image...

Ricoh GX200: Camera Test

 

Ricoh has joined the megapixel race across its line of advanced compacts, and here's the upgrade of the GX series of wide zooms, the GX200 ($495, direct, camera only; $597 with VF-1 viewfinder). The new rig gets a boost to 12MP, up from the 10MP of its...

Ricoh GX200 Digital Camera Review

 

It appears to be the case that smaller, more manually controlled and capable compacts favouring 35mm and rangefinder stylings are becoming more and more popular across the market and although Ricoh may not initially be a brand that springs to mind when...

Ricoh GX200

 

Seriously compact.

Excellent build quality, wide-angle zoom lens, extensive shooting options, portable design

Noise became noticeable at moderate ISO sensitivities, it's a bit expensive

The Ricoh GX200 provides plenty of SLR-style functionality in the body of a point-and-shoot camera. Despite some unfortunate noise issues it is a solid option for those who can afford it.

Ricoh GX200 review

 

Could the new GX200 tempt you away from your DSLR?

Great build quality ; User-friendly controls ; Good wide-angle zoom

Still won't rival a DSLR for performance

The GX200 is a perfect 'proper' compact to use alongside your DSLR, if the fixed focal length lens on Ricoh's GR Digital is off-putting. The build, controls and wide-angle zoom are excellent. Just don't expect miracles from the (or any other compact's)...

Ricoh GX200 VF Review – 026

 

There are few compact cameras that deserve to be tucked in your dSLR kit but the new Ricoh GX200, with its removable electronic viewfinder, could just be the one.

Slim, rigid design

Pesky lens cap

If the built-in flash isn't enough then a hot-shoe-mounted model can be used. You also have the ability to use flash exposure compensation and adjust the flash output. The lens is sharp and, for a Ricoh, reasonably quiet to operate. The only down side...
