Ricoh Caplio R7 Digital Camera Review

Ricoh Caplio R7 digital camera offers 8.1 megapixels and a 7.1x wide zoom lens (28-200mm), meaning that it will bring you more optical zoom than any other camera in this range. On the first view, I can say it has a very solid build. Around the back are a selection of well-positioned control buttons, which prove to be responsive. One of these buttons is particularly useful: the ‘adj’ button (abbreviation for adjustments), which allows easy access to a host of useful control options such as exposure compensation, white balance control and ISO settings: the main ingredients for a technically good photo.

Ricoh are well known for delivering responsive cameras, and the Caplio GX100 continues that tradition. The start-up time from turning the … Read more…

The Most Advanced Compact Underwater Digital Camera DX-1G

The worlds most advanced compact underwater digital camera system is currently the DX-1G (based on the Ricoh Caplio GX-100 digital camera). With it you can take photos up to 10 megapixels, using a 24-72mm wide-angle-to-telephoto lens even in RAW format not just JPEG.

From the press release: “The DX-1G is the result – offering SLR functionality, performance and features without the bulk, hassle and weight … Read more…
