The best camera in it's class! Full user controls. Excellent!

  • Summary: I had this camera for a few years, then left it in a rental car. I was totally bummed. I looked and looked until I found this one. Like new! This camera takes beautiful shots once you learn how to use it. Aperture and shutter priority work well. It's like having an SLR in a point and shoot. As stated in just about every review I've read, it is a bit noisy after iso 200. But no biggie, there's Photoshop! This camera has been discontinued, so they're hard to find.

Ricoh GX100 One Problem Frustrating

Traveller, Amazon
21 October 2012
  • Summary: When powering on Ricoh Caplio GX100, almost always the screen shows an "out of focus" picture. I have to power off and then power on and HOPE that the next power on shows a "focused" picture. Quite often I have to power off and power on over 6 times before I see a focused screen I have tested to see if the actual photo shown is also out of focus. Yes, the picture is out of focus. In other words, what you see on the screen is what you get.

  • Summary: I purchased this camera used on ebay for $200.00 it included the VF1 viewfinder, extetion tube,lens shade, Caplio strapand a after market lcd flip up sun screen wich I highly recomend. just under a month ago. The build quality is outstanding, it is smaaler than one may think but it fits the hand perfect with help from its rubber grips. I purchased this camera looking for a higher quality camera in the point and shoot size factor.

Ricoh GX100

  • Summary: I like Ricoh GX100 because of its RAW format capabilities, the manual controls, the build in quality and the 10M sensors versus 12M in the GX200. The camera is a bit slow on RAW writing but I can live with it. It is a great camera for any one who wants to travel lite and to have an excellent photography tool in hands.

  • Excerpt: Great camera..yes you do need to take some time to learn it, but that is when the rewards begin. Shooting RAW is a bit slow but will always give you things you would have lost in jpg, but the 100 is the best ricoh for jpegs, simply wonderful in all ways.

  • Summary: This camera is for those who like to play with manual settings on a DSLR and who don't want a giant brick of a camera in their pockets. I recommend to any aspiring photographer!

  • Excerpt: I bought the GX100 to replace a heavily used GX which I loved. I haven't been disappointed with it. This is the camera I pocket when I don't want to take my SLR or even if I just don't want to carry the equivalent SLR lenses as it is smaller than most SLR lenses short of pancakes. Image Quality is very good, particularly with the latest firmware which has fixed some problems with over exposure in some situations.

  • Excerpt: Lovely camera with excellent manual controls and user interface. 24mm eqv lens very useful, and rather unique in its macro capabilities - a really cool combination. Small enough to fit in a medium sized pocket, large enough to handle comfortably. The small grip is surprisingly good to grip. Useful features like step zoom (like a bag full of primes) and hyperfocal focusing and two fully customisable My modes. Problems: Noise, noise, noise.

  • Excerpt: I bought this camera for its wide-angle lens; it was the only non-DSLR on the market that went to 24mm at the time. For outdoor shots I'm very pleased with it. The ergonomics of the camera are excellent, very well thought-out. I enjoy using this camera. If you can find it, the GX100 is a much better option than the newer GX200, as that camera squeezes more pixels onto the same sized sensor.
