Caplio 8 megapix coming soon.

It will look like the GX.

But will have 8 million pixels.

I just read the samples. They come with huge noise and low resolution.

Effectively it's still a 5MP DC.

In the specifications of the GX8 Ricoh mention 8.1 Mpxl. It is true that the sample pictures are quite dull and do not show a high quality. What surprises me is that these samples are in bitmap format, which is not the original format issued by the camera, there is noEXIF file which woud give details of the shooting conditions

i don't know where you must've been looking there, but they're JPEG'ed and EXiF'ed now
i've only downloaded the last one and i have to say that it's quite a can just spot the noise, while EXiF says that the ISO of the picture is 64! lol

I followed the link given by chuckmo and loaded on my hard drive some samples given by Ricoh, having no other option than bitmap. When I did the same for other digicams with samples given on Steves reviews, I got jpeg files from which I could read the EXIF with Irfanview or Xnview.

How did you get the jpeg files for gx8?

Thank you

that's strange, all the samples that i can see on the given site are jpegs...maybe i'll post direct links to the files for everybody having similar problem :

there you go :) the one i'm talking about is the last one
