  • 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.

  • 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. Doté d'un capteur 8 mégapixels, le Caplio GX8 s'adresse aux amateurs experts de certains domaines. Par exemple le domaine scientifique. Comment cet appareil arrive t-il à se démarquer ?
  • Pros: Les compléments optiques, Le grand angle
  • Cons: Qualité optique moyenne, Le bruit
