Conclusion: The Ricoh Caplio GX is an interesting digital camera which brings Ricoh in the spotlight again. The camera is equipped with high quality optics and a functional zoom range. The wide angle is getting more and more attractive to more manufacturers and it is good to see Ricoh taking the lead. The way Ricoh lets his camera focus is magnificent!
Conclusion: This is a preliminary first-looks review based on our experience of using the camera under everyday conditions plus limited benchmark testing. A full review with additional benchmarking will follow.

Summary: The Ricoh Caplio GX builds on the strengths of the Ricoh
Caplio RX, G4 and G4wide models, resulting in a camera that
is exceptionally easy to use and which instantly feels "right".
The 28-85mm wide lens makes it stand out from the crowd of
digital cameras that only go as wide as 35mm, and the sheer
speed of its operation means that the Caplio GX will never
leave you waiting around.
Summary: The Caplio GX is simple enough for complete novices, but also has a range of features to keep enthusiasts happy. It’s let down by a lack of extras and a light meter that struggles in some conditions. However, it delivers above-average performance and its macro facilities make it a little bit special.
Summary: Test shots were colour accurate with moderate saturation and contrast. Noise was negligible at ISO 100 and remained quite low up to ISO 400, becoming noticeable only at ISO 1600. Close-up capabilities were impressive and flash coverage was adequate. The white balance control handled fluorescent lighting adequately but did poorly with incandescent lights. . .
Conclusion: De Ricoh Caplio GX is een interessante digitale camera waarmee Ricoh wederom weer van zich laat horen. De camera is uitgerust met een goede kwaliteit optiek en een functioneel zoombereik. De groothoek komt langzamerhand bij meerdere fabrikanten in trek en het is goed om te zien dat Ricoh op dat gebied haantje de voorste is. De manier waarop Ricoh zijn camera laat scherpstellen is eerste klas!
