5p.m. last light for capturing this peacock's incredible fan of green, blue and pink. Each time the photographer moves close, the peacock flashes its fan for an instant and runs away. Fortunately, his camera has high-speed response, and soon, the shot is his.   F3.4 1/104 ISO: 400 (28mm)


 

The Caplio's 1cm macro has a reputation for inspiring creativity.

Ricoh technology puts the art of macro photography at your fingertips. With the lens set at wide angle and autofocus engaged, you can shoot from as close as 1cm from your subject (10cm away in telemacro mode). By measuring and optimizing performance for subject size and contrast, the Caplio GX8 provides focus precision. See a world beyond the naked eye and capture it.

Internal flash with macro shooting.

For macro shooting with flash, you can shoot as close as 15cm from your subject without worrying about white out. Just zoom out to telemacro mode and shoot with the internal flash on.


 

Six scene modes make getting the right shot easy.

Six scene modes—Portrait, Sports, Landscape, Night Scene, Text and High Sensitivity—allow you to create the impression you want at a turn of a dial.


 

Three continuous shooting modes: regular, S-continuous, M-continuous.

Multiply your chances of getting the perfect shot with regular continuous mode. The Caplio GX8 will fire continuously for as long as you press down the shutter button. Two more continuous modes enhance your control in other ways. In S-continuous mode, a press of the shutter button fires 16 shots in approximately 2 seconds and stores them in a single file. M-continuous mode memorizes the last 16 shots in an approximately 2-second file. Good for capturing continuous motion sequences, these modes enable you to analyze your golf swing, etc. Each shot can be displayed large on the monitor and you can playback the entire sequence as animation.


 

The Caplio GX8's expandability is an inspiration for the imagination.

More powerful than a compact digital camera, more compact and easier to use than an SLR, the Caplio GX8 is a bridge to the future of photography. Powerful extra features designed just for the Caplio GX8 expand your capabilities to the far reaches of your creativity.

  Hood, adapter and wide conversion lens are available for super-wide 22mm photography.
  Enjoy the benefits of bounce flash by connecting an external flash.Turn off the internal flash to save power and let the external flash fire continuously and at short intervals as needed since it is powered separately from the camera.
  Combine an astronomical telescope or microscope with your camera and let your creativity visit new worlds.
  An optional cable switch is helpful for preventing camera- shake during macro shooting or long exposures.
