The Ricoh Caplio GX100 is another release from the brand that has a reputation in producing fine cameras. From their latest release this camera is a zoom compact with an intelligent specification and a guaranteed satisfied performance. Its attractive features are a 10-megapixel resolution, variety of modes to choose from, RAW picture files, a removable electronic viewfinder, an optical image stabilization and not to forget its being light, in terms of weight. Other interesting features include a 3x zoom lens with an unparalleled wide-angle capability which enables the camera to cover a range equivalent to 24-72mm on a 35mm camera. The Ricoh Caplio GX100 is the first digital compact to have an optional removable electronic viewfinder. It is also one of the only digital compact cameras to have a 24mm equivalent wide-angle zoom. Both these two features bring a lot of benefits to both serious and amateur photographers. Those are also the things that attract and would attract photographers to use it. Control of exposure modes offered are manual, program, and aperture-priority mode. The support of RAW picture files in this camera makes the color adjustment in the software much easier. The Ricoh Caplio GX100 has a special hot shoe terminal which gives you the choice of attaching an external flash to accommodate poor lightning conditions. This model is basically designed for serious photographers who like to have control when taking their shots. According to a certain reviewer, the GX100 is a great camera and more suited to someone with a small business or a keen amateur who needs a wide angle compact with the features of an SLR. Another reviewer described, the Ricoh Caplio GX100 has aperture and full manual mode. But it's not ultra-compact, still small. The Ricoh Caplio GX100 runs on rechargeable Li-Ion battery or AAA cells.
