Ricoh GX100

Ricoh have announced the new Ricoh GX100 – a compact 10 megapixel update to the Ricoh Caplio GX8 – it features an ultra-wide angle 3x optical zoom lens equivalent to 24 – 72mm, a 2.5″ screen, CCD-shift vibration correction feature, 1cm macro, ISO upto 1600, 380 shot battery life and a removable LCD viewfinder. The Ricoh Caplio GX100 will be available at the end of April for £399:

“Frame every scene as you like with the 24-72mm wide zoom lens featuring F2.5~F9.1 (Wide-angle) and F4.4~F15.8 (Telephoto) aperture settings. Stretch the perspective at wide angles or bring subjects into sharp focus at up to 3x zoom. The uniquely configured lens compensates for wideangle distortion, an issue with lesser cameras, to suppress chromatic aberration and edge light falloff. So high resolution and contrast reach to the very corners of your photos. A macro mode is also provided for capturing subjects as close as 1cm from the lens at the 24mm setting (4cm at 72mm setting).”

    This is the perfect camera on paper, but the results are deeply disappointing. I love the fast, wide angle lens, the macro capability and the DNG/RAW support… but the images are ridiculously noisy. A deep shame, and I found out the hard way — bought the damn thing!
