  • 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. It belongs to the cameras with the highest amount of pixels and it certainly is one of a few with the highest ISO setting.

  • 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.
  • Pros: Detailed macro mode, interesting picture quality settings
  • Cons: Poor quality LCD, difficult software

  • 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. The camera offers full manual controls and is quite compact - the 3x optical zoom lens is equivalent to 28-85mm on a 35mm camera. The camera is enclosed in a black aluminium die-cast body. It records unlimited 320 x 240 / 30fps videos with sound.
  • 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

  • Summary: The megapixel myth strikes again. Higher megapixel counts don't automatically translate into better-quality photos, and that’s certainly the case with the Caplio GX8. The camera is easy and intuitive to use, nicely compact and very well finished, but noisy image quality lets it down. Great price, though.

  • Summary: The Ricoh Caplio GX8 is a frustrating camera. It's one of the most usable, intuitive and well-designed digital cameras that I have ever reviewed. At the same time, however, the images that it produces are some of the worst that I have ever seen. Large amounts of chromatic aberrations are present in many varied situations, including those where you wouldn't expect to see it, and noise is very apparent at ISO 200 and faster.

  • Summary: Ricoh's neat little Caplio GX8 is based on the 5-megapixel Caplio GX model and sports the same 3x optical zoom lens. With its 8-megapixel sensor, flash hot shoe and suite of manual controls, it's targeted more at the quality-conscious intermediate photographer than the novice and it comes with a classy suede-like carrying pouch. . .

[ REVIEW—RICOH CAPLIO GX8 ]

DPexpert
7 January 2005
  • Excerpt: $799 3.5 stars The Ricoh Caplio GX8 is an 8 megapixel camera with a 28~85mm (film equivalent) zoom lens. 28mm is ideal for scenery and buildings but 85mm is restricted at the long end. The lens is reasonably fast at f2.5 at wide angle. Ricoh boast that their cameras are devoid of the dreaded shutter lag and the GX8 is certainly quick. When turned on the metal lens cover snaps open, the lens extends and the camera is ready to use.
  • Pros: The camera body is attractive and the form is small enough to fit in a pocket. It also feels rugged. The camera focusses quickly and produces sharp, naturally coloured, well exposed images. The macro mode is exceptionally good, allowing focus down to 1 cm when the lens is set to wide. There is noticeable picture noise at ISO settings above 200. The manual settings are restricted to 3 aperture choices but there is a range of shutter speeds from 30 seconds to 1/2000 sec...
