Ricoh Caplio GX100 Digital Camera Review

In matter of design, Ricoh Caplio is not much for a camera, but as performance, at the quality-price rapport, it stands out good. There’s no optical viewfinder on the Ricoh Caplio GX100, but there’s a removable optional electronic viewfinder which might be useful. The user interface is simple, with minimum buttons, therefor, image deletion is not as easy as pressing a key. On the other hand, this is a camera that offers it’s users a manual focus mode and even the flash pops-up manually plus it sports an external lens cap.

This camera feature has an optical-based anti-shake system which is normally turned on. Therefore, the Ricoh Caplio GX100 automatically compensates for camera shake, which is a slight blurring of the image that typically occurs at slow shutter speeds. Ricoh are well known for delivering responsive cameras, and the Caplio GX100 continues that tradition.

The start-up time from turning the Ricoh Caplio GX100 on to being ready to take a photo is very quick at around 0.75 second, and it takes just over 1 second to zoom from the widest focal length to the longest. Focusing is very quick in good light and the camera happily achieves focus most of the time indoors or in low-light situations.

Other things that I like at this camera include the surprisingly good white balance control and a wide usable sensitivity range. There is an innovative feature on the Ricoh Caplio GX100 that is called Camera Shake Correction. Both the Flash On setting and the Red-Eye Reduction option may cause only a tiny amount of red-eye. Macro performance is also a stand-out highlight, allowing you to focus as close as 1cm away from the subject.

In conclusion, the Ricoh Caplio GX100 digital camera offers a 10 megapixel sensor, wide-angle 24-72mm lens, RAW mode via the Adobe DNG format, external hotshoe, full creative control over exposure, and optical image stabilization, plus, it provides good quality pictures.

I started photography as a hobby in 2005, during college. My passion slowly became a more important part of my life since 2008. Because of using a combination of my photographic knowledge, with those of internet marketing, I like to call myself a "photomarketer".
