RicohRicoh GX100 digital camera review : Many photographers dream of a compact digital camera with a fine zoom range, including a true wide-angle, one that gives a high resolution and can also store images in RAW. Until recently this remained just a dream. But fortunately there is the opinionated Ricoh, who seems to make the dream come true. With the DIWA Gold Award rewarded GR Digital, Ricoh already has an exceptional camera with a fine wide-angle and RAW support. The Ricoh Caplio GX100 takes it a step further: more wide-angle, more pixels and an optical zoom including image stabilization. What more can a photographer ask for? We have tested the GX100 in our test lab, to explore if the camera truly lives up to the expectations.

Ricoh GX100 - Wide-angle camera lens
The Ricoh Caplio GX100 is a high-performance camera cram packed with advanced functions including a 24 to 72 mm equivalent high-performance wide zoom lens that can be expanded to even ultra-wide-angle shooting equivalent to 19 mm using the optional wide conversion lens, being the first digital camera to support a removable electronic viewfinder (LCD viewfinder), and high image quality thanks to the 10.01 Megapixel effective CCD and popular Smooth Imaging Engine II image processing.

Ricoh Caplio GX100 - 10 Megapixels
The Ricoh GX100 is Ricoh's first digital compact camera that has been equipped with a 10 Megapixel CCD image sensor. With this, the producer now also matches the competition. With ten million pixels you will have more than enough information to print a large picture. Imagine a scenery photographed with the 24mm and printed on A2. Something like that is possible with the Ricoh Caplio GX100.

Ricoh GX100 digital camera - RAW format
While the largest part of camera manufacturers ignores the RAW format in compact cameras, Ricoh upholds this feature. With that, the Ricoh Caplio GX100 becomes an interesting camera for the photographer who wants to have ultimate control over the image. Wisely, Ricoh has chosen not to develop their own RAW format but uses DNG, Adobe's open standard. In theory, it should be possible to open it with most RAW converters. In practice this is a bit more wayward, but with Photoshop and the latest Camera RAW plug-in you will have no problems whatsoever to work with the photos of the Ricoh GX100.

Ricoh GX100 digital wide-angle camera review
Just like with the GR Digital camera, Ricoh has managed to place another unique digital compact camera on the market with the Caplio GX100. We received the Ricoh Caplio GX100 in our test lab, to explore if the camera truly lives up to the expectations. Our findings can be read in the following Ricoh Caplio GX100 review.
