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.

  • Conclusion: If Ricoh could clean up noise a bit more at ISO 80 and 100 without reducing resolving power, and put in a bigger buffer for raw shooting, the camera would get five stars. As It is I’ll give it four out of five – it’s that good. But whatever you do Ricoh, don’t add smile detection.

DP Review
16 March 2008
  • 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 ...
  • 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 sharpe...

Camera Test: Ricoh Caplio GX100

Pop Photo
29 February 2008
  • Excerpt: 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 benefit of sensor-based image stabilization.

Ricoh Caplio GX100 Review

What Digital Camera
9 July 2007
  • Summary: The thing that’s disappointed us with most high-end compact cameras is the lack of Raw capture for the more demanding user. If you’re spending £350-£400 on a compact – possibly to back up your DSLR – this is an important feature.
  • Pros: Raw shooting, 24mm wide end on lens, ‘My Settings’ option
  • Cons: Noisy images (but sharp!), Menu system

  • Summary: 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.
  • Pros: Wide angle shooting, Smooth design, Funky accessories, Sharp pictures
  • Cons: Some noise problems, Expensive
