Exclusive world's first review of the Ricoh GX200. Is this the best compact ever?

Ricoh GX200 review

 

Could the new GX200 tempt you away from your DSLR?

Great build quality ; User-friendly controls ; Good wide-angle zoom

Still won't rival a DSLR for performance

The GX200 is a perfect 'proper' compact to use alongside your DSLR, if the fixed focal length lens on Ricoh's GR Digital is off-putting. The build, controls and wide-angle zoom are excellent. Just don't expect miracles from the (or any other compact's)...

Ricoh GX200 professional compact camera

 

Ricoh has quite a history in camera design and development dating back over fifty years. The latestGX200 camera continues their tradition of robust quality.

My own history with Ricoh dates back around thirty years when the first 'real' camera I was allowed to use was my fathers compact 35mm range-finder camera. I was allowed to take it away on a school trip! The results even in my inexperienced hands...

Ricoh GX200

 

Ricoh have finally decided to ditch the Caplio name tag and in my opinion it wasn't too soon. Does this mean Ricoh have made any other changes that will have any adverse affects on the specification of the camera?

Excellent build; Good macro; AF/AE adjustment; Good portrait mode

Still no shutter priority

Ricoh GX200: Review

 

Ricoh says goodbye to the Caplio name with this GX100 update

24mm wide angle ; RAW (DNG) 5 consecutive shots available ; Excellent control ; Manual flash control also available ; Auto level display (determines horizontal/vertical angle)

Flash drowns out subjects at close range ; Some barrel distortion at wide end ; Not hugely different to previous GX100 ; Expensive! The Ricoh GX200 is the successor to the Ricoh Caplio GX100 - an acclaimed high-end compact camera targeted at...

The Ricoh GX200 wants to be the best high-end compact on the market, and it does give it a darn good shot. However, it's not hugely different from its predecessor - the GX100. Improvements are marginal rather than monumental, with the ISO noise and...

The GX200 aims to pack DSLR features into a compact body, and does an impressive job

An excellent camera that will appeal to those intending to take landscape shots but don't want to lug a DSLR around

The best high-end compact money can buy?...

Anyone familiar with the GX100 will be at home with the Ricoh GX200, as it's essentially the same 25mm slim body with a handful of updated features - improved RAW performace, 12.1megapixel CCD sensor, and the next generation Smooth Image Engine III...
