Dynamic range

In our dynamic-range test, both the Ricoh A12 and S10 camera units were found to have a dynamic range of around 10.5EV. This is a little less than the Canon PowerShot G11, which has a dynamic range of around 11EV. It is also less than the Panasonic Lumix GF1, which has a range of nearly 12EV.

This slightly restrictive dynamic range is most noticeable in the highlight and shadow areas, where it becomes more difficult to define image details.

Image: Although I found that the GXR has a tendency to produce JPEG images that have light skies, there is enough detail in raw files to correct this
