Ricoh Caplio GX8 review
Ricoh Caplio GX. No slot for the original GX so I am putting this here.
My first digital camera. The feature set seemed fantastic and the performance on
focus and shutter lag was better than anything else at the time. My favourite
features of the camera are:
Wide angle lens.
Full manual control (almost).
External flash facility.
Automated shooting (eg take a shot every 30 seconds).
Allows use of polariser.
Instantaneous shutter when used in some modes. This has captured shots for me
that everyone else missed!
All in a pocket camera!
Not usable at ISO above 400. Noise can be an issue for this camera.
Flash for macro is unreliable (so I just use external).
Internal flash takes too long to cycle.
I would upgrade to the GX 100 but I am hoping Ricoh will bring out a model with an
auto lens cover again.
