RicohRicoh Caplio GX8 digital camera review : More than a year ago Ricoh introduced the Ricoh Caplio GX, a 5 Megapixel camera with a number of unique features. Now Ricoh introduces the Ricoh GX8 as its successor; an almost similar camera but with no less than 8 Megapixels. These 8.2 Megapixels make the Ricoh Caplio GX8 take the lead as far as number of pixels on digital compact cameras is concerned. Besides its high resolution, the camera has some additional interesting possibilities. The Ricoh Caplio GX8 is a digital compact camera with the shortest interval of release ever, and the camera is one of a few with the highest ISO setting. Besides that, the camera stands out because of its real wide angle and its remarkable continuous mode.
Ricoh Caplio GX8 reviewGX8 - Optical Zoom with wide angle
The zoom range on the Ricoh GX8 is especially interesting. I wouldn't say it has a super broad optical range, because it has a three times optical zoom which is not that enhanced. However, it starts at 28mm (compared to a 35mm camera) and goes all the way up to about 85mm. This gives the Ricoh Caplio GX8 an extremely popular range. From a real wide angle to a fine telephoto. Most competitors offer a lot less wide angle. It makes the Ricoh Caplio GX8 an interesting camera for the street- or landscape photographer. Also the ISO sensitivity, which ranges up until ISO 1600, may be called exceptional on a digital compact camera like the Ricoh GX8.

Ricoh GX8 camera - Fast reaction
The Ricoh Caplio GX features the same short interval of release like its brother the Caplio GX. That is to say, according to the specifications; how this turns out in practice will show further down in the review. The quick response ensures a perfect anticipation on a movement; directly after pressing the release button the picture is captured. And Ricoh managed to pour all of this into a beautiful housing. The base is a light weighted metal, which is not found as a standard on other compact cameras either. Ricoh definitely isn't afraid to try something different. Still we don't see that many Ricoh digital cameras out in the streets, which is not completely justified. The current line of Ricoh digital cameras proves its right to a potential market share.
