Ricoh Caplio GX8 review

Good solid construction and relatively simple to use. Lens is sharp and has a wide angle equivalent of 28mm - very useful.

Image quality is very good at low ISO levels - 100 and 64. Noise is evident at 200 and above - but can be reduced using post processing to acceptable levels.

NiMH AAs are OK - but the camera performance is far better when using the optional lithium battery - available on ebay for less than £10 - but you will need a charger.

Problems:

No major problems so far.
