Ricoh Caplio GX100 Digital Camera Review

PhotoAxe
10 September 2013
  • Excerpt: 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 might be useful. The user interface is simple, with minimum buttons, therefor, image deletion is not as easy as pressing a key.

  • Conclusion: Ricoh GX100 compact camera with wide-angle 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 housing. In addition, the Ricoh Caplio GX100 also has a very nice ISO range. These are all things that interest me.

  • Conclusion: 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 needs of the serious photographer.
  • Pros: 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 interface, Superb user interface for manual controls and overrides, Program shift, Pretty effective Image Stabilization (nowhere near as good as an optical system, however), 19mm lens option, Excellent screen, Generally...
  • Cons: 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' results, with strong saturation and sharpening, (Very) mild Auto white balance problems, Screen can be hard to see in very bright light, Add on viewfinder isn't great, also not brilliant in bright light, No dedicated ...

  • Excerpt: Digital camera manufacturers have yet to produce a must-have alternative to an SLR for pros. Compact cameras tend to be almost entirely focused on consumers, emphasising gimmicks and ease of use rather than manual controls and ultimate image quality.

Ricoh Caplio GX100 review Review

CNET
19 July 2007
  • Summary: An expensive -- but not over-priced -- compact camera that will appeal to enthusiast snappers bored with average lenses, average interfaces and average pictures. The wide-angle zoom lens in particular offers flexibility and competence in a fully manual package.
  • Pros: Sharp wide-angle zoom, Excellent manual controls, Solid pictures
  • Cons: Some shooting delays, Weak autofocus, Average image stabilisation

CNET
27 June 2007
  • Summary: The Ricoh Caplio GX100 brings the control and features of a good dSLR camera to a compact model. However, its average image quality, high image noise above ISO 400 and unattractive design are shortcomings that may keep many from being attracted by its class-leading features.
  • Pros: User-friendly controls for full manual creative shooting, Impressive, class-leading feature set, RAW format capture ability, CCD-shift optical image stabilisation, Clip-on electronic viewfinder
  • Cons: Mediocre image quality, Excessive noise above ISO 400, Slow focusing

Ricoh Caplio GX100

20 June 2007
  • Summary: 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 deliberately curtailing their high-end compacts in some way - both Nikon and Canon don't provide a RAW mode in the P-5000 and G7 respectively, for example - Ricoh have moved in the opposite direction by making the GX100 as...
