Ricoh Caplio RX review

I'm very happy with this camera I bought for 119 euro's a couple of weeks ago. It's very easy to use and I think the imagequality is very good for a 3MP.
What I like the best is the 28 mm wide focus and the fact it's extreme fast for a compact. I can state that what you see on the screen, you will see on the picture, even if it's moving fast.

Also the macro-mode is very nice, I made some thrilling macro's of a dragonfly and some other insects with it.

To summarize, very good value for the money.
Now the new Caplio GX8 comes out soon I can't wait to see the results of it.


What I don't like is the fact that with ISO set to auto, it can be set to as high as 400 ISO with too much noise as a result.
So I set it to 200 ISO manually and then everything looks fine.


white balance set to cloudy gives muddy results. But auto works very good outside, so I don't miss it.
