Caplio GX8 - In-depth views|
According to Mark Goldstein: "The Ricoh Caplio GX8's interface, both software and the camera body, employs options and concepts that are an accepted part of the photographic industry. The Adj. button on the rear of the camera is a particularly nice feature that allows you to quickly adjust 3 different settings that are commonly used. It's not all good news, however, as Ricoh's implementation doesn't quite allow "full" control. Ricoh's claims about the speed of the Ricoh GX8 in terms of starting up the camera and shutter-lag do seem to be accurate."
Ricoh Caplio GX8 - PhotographyBLOG review conclusion
Mark continues: "The GX8 digital camera dealt badly with chromatic aberrations, which appeared in many of the test shots, with obvious purple fringing effects appearing in a variety of different lighting conditions and subjects. On a more positive note, the sharpening level at the default setting of Normal is fine (and can also be increased or decreased in-camera) and macro performance is nothing short of amazing, allowing you to focus as close as 1 cms away from the subject. The 28-85mm wide lens does make the Ricoh Caplio GX8 stand out from the crowd of digital cameras that only go as wide as 35mm, and the sheer speed of its operation means that the Caplio GX8 will never leave you waiting around.

Mark Goldstein started his very active website PhotographyBlog in January 2003. At first the one and only purpose was to let this site function as one of those popular weblogs with Photography as main topic. But as we all know Photography is a pretty big subject to publish about so Mark decided to focus on some hot key points like mentioning all new introductions, reviews, reports from events like PMA and Photokina, sharing some impressive and creative photos and Mark's sole perspective of his feeling about this fascinating world of Digital Imaging. Mark is based in the UK, but his eagle-eye focuses global! Be sure to visit his weblog about Photography, in fact bookmark it, because we believe that Mark is pretty close to become an active and respected website.
