Can the GX100 offer semi-pro quality with compact camera convenience?

Ricoh Caplio GX100 review

 

Can this new high-end compact woo the Leica crowd?

Flexible, with a host of manual controls ; Very well built, with a great lens

Sluggish lens operation ; Expensive

We wish there was a huge market for Ricoh's smart, sophisticated offering. The wide-angle lens is glorious, ease of use is almost perfect and images are great. Unfortunately, it's too expensive for amateurs and too slow for pros. Worth snapping up if...

Best Prestige Camera: Ricoh Caplio GX100

 

The Ricoh Caplio GX100 is one of the very few digital compact cameras with a true wide-angle zoom lens, starting at 24mm (35mm film equivalent). The optional wide conversion lens enables users to shoot 19mm ultra wide-angle photography. The Caplio...

Ricoh Caplio GX100

 

A high-end 10MP compact with a wideangle zoom and the world's first removable electronic viewfinder

Raw shooting, 24mm wide end on lens, ‘My Settings' option

Noisy images (but sharp!), Menu system

The thing that’s disappointed us with most high-end compact cameras is the lack of Raw capture for the more demanding user. If you’re spending £350-£400 on a compact – possibly to back up your DSLR – this is an important feature. The Ricoh GX100 has...

Ricoh Caplio GX100

 

Compact, light and able to produce great quality results. Is this a replacement to your DSLR?

The GX100 is a portable, easy-to-use camera for those who want the quality but not bulk of a DSLR

Ricoh Caplio GX100

 

Digital camera manufacturers have yet to produce a must-have alternative to an SLR for pros. Compact cameras tend to be almost entirely focused on consumers, emphasising gimmicks and ease of use rather than manual controls and ultimate image quality

Flexible, with a host of manual controls, Very well built, with a great lens

Sluggish lens operation, Expensive

Ricoh Caplio GX100

 

Ricoh have always been one of those companies that should be taken more seriously than they are. The top end cameras they produce are good, the digital cameras have always had inspiring features and looking at the GX100, it doesn't look like it will...

Wide angle lens; 1cm Macro; SLR features

Only a 3x optical zoom
