Caplio GX

Greater control and convenience is now yours in a compact digital camera.






Three metering methods achieve
exactly the exposure control you want.

The Caplio GX has three metering modes to let you control exposure just as you wish. Depending on the situation, you can select Multi that divides the entire shooting range into 256 parts to measure the intensity of the light, Center that measures the entire range while emphasizing the center, and Spot that measures the light intensity only at the center.

Optimum manual focus
when AF cannot focus.

Sometimes it is difficult to focus with AF, such as when shooting through glass or when the entire subject is white. On those occasions, you can select Manual focus and control the focus freely.

Includes an image non-compression mode
to meet professional needs.

In addition to the N(normal) and F(fine) modes, you can select NC (non- compression)mode for recording in TIFF image format. A flexible format that preserves all picture data allowing for a 'digital positive' as it represents a true image.

Histogram display lets you accurately
check exposure.


The histogram display lets you judge the brightness of the image without being influenced by the way it appears on the LCD monitor. You can also recall recorded data when playing back images.

Reproduce more faithful colors:
white balance manual setting.

There are times when you will need to override the automatic white balance by choosing a white balance manually, typically when shooting in multiple light sources. The Caplio GX has six modes to help you obtain faithful colors: Auto, Outdoor, Cloudy, Incandescent, Fluorescent, and One Push that lets you set the white balance manually. This allows you to measure a white point from a part of the image to be captured, which the camera will then use to correct all images until you reset it.

To be sure you get the shot you want:
White Balance Bracket and Auto Bracket.

With white balance set to the standard value, White Balance Bracket automatically shoots three images, one with a red tone, one at standard white, and one with a blue tone. You just shoot and then choose the one you like best.


By engaging Auto Bracket, you get three shots at three different exposure levels: -0.5EV, ±0, and +0.5EV. This ensures that you get the best image even in tricky light conditions.

Use a high capacity lithium ion rechargeable battery,
AA batteries, or an AC power source.


As a camera for professional use, the Caplio GX provides superior practicality during emergencies. It can be powered not only by a high capacity lithium rechargeable battery, but also by AA batteries. This is useful if a battery unexpectedly runs out of power. It can also be powered by your household power using an AC adapter.
Long-life battery.
The optional high capacity lithium ion rechargeable battery (DB-43)gives you a high shooting capacity of about 400 pictures*2(Normal mode, 30-second intervals using flash and zoom for one our of two photos).

Lightweight and durable aluminum alloy body
is easy to hold.

Designed to be a professional tool, the Caplio GX adopts an ergonomic grip shape that fits firmly in your hand. It promises holding properties with a highly integrated feel.

Up-down dial (Sub command dial) supports
quick manual operation.

This dial lets you set the menu and change aperture or shutter speed more quickly than ever before.

ADJ button simplifies manual control.
The ADJ button allows exposure correction, white balancing and ISO sensitivity setting with fewer operations. You can also customize functions other than these adjustment functions with the ADJ button.

1.8-type high-detail LCD monitor(approx. 130,000 pixels)
Even when the image is expanded, this high precision 'live' monitor lets you quickly and accurately preview focusing when using manual focus.

  • Internal 16MB memory/SD card:Equipped with a compact, high speed, highly reliable SD memory card as its recording media. It also has a convenient 16MB internal memory for recording even without a card.
  • Video recording with sound:In addition to still pictures, the Caplio GX lets you record high quality video (AVI) with sound.
  • S/M continuous mode function:The S/M continuous mode function lets you record 16 pictures in a single file continuously for 3 seconds.
