Conclusion: Ricoh Caplio digital camera - Unique features The Ricoh Caplio GX8 is a different digital camera. Different because of its design and different because of a number of unique features. The Ricoh Caplio GX8 is a digital compact camera with the shortest interval of release ever.
Summary: Ricoh has come up with a groundbreaking compact camera that we're sure will have many of you reaching for your chequebooks. It's not pretty or fun, but it's excellent value. Bear in mind that you'll need a capacious SD card.
Excerpt: Introduction: The Ricoh Caplio GX8 features a wide angle 3x optical zoom lens, an 8 megapixel sensor, and a 1.8" screen. The GX8 is available from around £240, making the GX8 extremely good value for money.
Pros: Excellent macro mode, Wide angle zoom lens, Easy to use, Very good detail, Good to Very good colour, Decent movie mode (unlimited 320 x 240 / 30fps with sound), Excellent ISO range (64 - 1600), Audio recording, Full manual controls
Cons: Slow flash recharge time (depending on batteries used and their condition), High noise at ISO400, very high noise at ISO800 and ISO1600, noise visible at ISO64, Some purple fringing, vignetting, Manually setting white balance may be required at times

Excerpt: Voici un boitier aux courbes vraiment peu originales ! Mais le but de Ricoh n'est pas proposer un compact "bijou" comme le font ses concurrents. Le constructeur préfère se démarquer pour séduire des publics différents et cette stratégie est très appréciable.
