The Caplio G3 is a 3.24-megapixel compact digital camera featuring a maximum optical resolution of 2,048 x 1,536, 3x zoom and auto and manual focus. It records images to 8MB of internal memory, SD or MMC media. It is capable of audio and video capture, video-out, and it can connect to a computer via USB.
When released earlier this year, Ricoh announced that it was the first digital camera to rival or even surpass 35mm camera speeds and it is capable of reacting in 0.14 seconds after the shutter is depressed.
The camera can be powered by rechargable Lithium-Ion, alkaline, or NiMH batteries allowing people to enjoy the longevity of Lithium-Ion and the availability of alkaline. The LCD interface is intuitive, and flicking between stored images is quick. A high sensitivity mode provides an excellent view of subjects in the dark. Picture quality was also quite good. The Caplio performed notably shooting at high zoom with no flash. Though it is has a fair set of features, the Caplio G3 does not have the best physical finish.
