Ricoh Caplio GX200 Review

Review Summary
Reader Score: 7.06 (out of 10)
Review (Summary): "Ricoh's follow up to last years GX100 continues the company's commitment to designing quality compacts combining portability with manual control. Few people carry a DSLR everywhere, so cameras such as this, or Sigma's DP-1 are an ideal pocket alternative. Like its predecessor the GX-200 has Raw shooting, a 3x zoom lens and purist sensibility. ...

The GX200 is a bit of a mixed bag when it comes to the images. At lower ISOs in good light it can certainly produce the goods. Color and tone is very pleasant and images have plenty of punch. Sharpness is good throughout the zoom range and there's plenty of detail ion the images. ... From ISO 400 and over image noise spoils the pictures. ..."

Review (Summary): "Ricoh has joined the megapixel race across its line of advanced compacts, and here's the upgrade of the GX series of wide zooms, the GX200 ($495, direct, camera only; $597 with VF-1 viewfinder). The new rig gets a boost to 12MP, up from the 10MP of its predecessor, the GX100, plus an assortment of tweaks and tuneups. ...

... Keep the GX200 to ISO 400 or below and you'll get great pictures. The image stabilization helps here, providing up to two more stops of hand-hold-ability in our tests using DxO Analyzer 3.0.1 - a very good performance for so short a lens...."

Steves-Digicams has reviewed the new Ricoh Caplio GX200, a high-end point & shoot camera with a lens and features typically found on digital SLR's.

In the review it was noted that while the GX200 features an excellent macro mode and "a great combination of quality and performance," its price will turn off all but the most serious photographers.

Review (Summary): "Successor to the 15-month old GX100 model, the GX200 retains many of that camera's main features - an unusual wide-angle 24-72mm 3x optical zoom lens, optical image stabilisation, RAW mode via the Adobe DNG format, 25mm thick pocketable body, external hotshoe, full creative control over exposure, and an optional removable electronic viewfinder. Improvements offered by the GX200 include a 12 megapixel 1/1.7-inch CCD sensor, the new Smooth Imaging Engine III processing engine, a larger 2.7-inch, 460,000 pixel HVGA LCD screen, 5 shot continuous RAW mode and an electronic level function for horizontal and vertical shooting. ...

... At first glance the GX200 seems very similar to it predecessor, but after a week's shooting it quickly becomes evident that this camera is much more refined, both in terms of speed and features - the only thing lacking is any improvement in image quality. ..."
