PhotographyBlogRicoh GX8 review at PhotographyBLOG : DIWA member Mark Goldstein from PhotographyBLOG has reviewed the Ricoh Caplio GX8 digital camera. The Ricoh GX8 is equipped with 8.24 effective Megapixel CCD and packed in a slim 29mm package weighing around 200 grams. The interesting aspect of the Caplio GX8's zoom lens is the wide-angle of 28mm which is ideal for capturing landscape, street or architect shots. The lens is composed of 9 glass elements in 7 groups. The total optical zoom range is 3x with a 4x digital zoom providing the Ricoh Caplio GX8 a total of 12x zoom. Furthermore the Ricoh GX8 is very fast, it takes only 1.3 seconds from start up to take the first shot and is ready to take the next shot in 1.7 second intervals.
Ricoh GX8 review at PhotographyBLOGCaplio 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.

About PhotographyBLOG

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.
