  • I had the D20 for about one week before returned it for other reasons. But the image quality was good except for lens sample variation on my copy.
  • Tood bad that the manufacturers not have got more serious about the waterproof compacts. The only of them with reasonably little NR that I know are the Canon Powershot D20 and D30. But these two ...
  • What Ricoh should come up with is a new travel-zoom compact with 1/1.7" or bigger sensor combined with a 20-200 or 300 mm zoom and Raw/Dng. 1" sensor would be great but would probably make the ...
  • Ricoh RDC-7 http://ebay.de/itm/Ricoh-RDC-7-Digitalcamera-/151556057913?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_77&hash=item234971eb39 Ricoh Caplio G4 ...
  • Replied in No new GR?
    And neither as good UI plus Sony refuses in their usual stupid way to update the firmware to sort out quirks or shortcomings.
  • Indeed the GX100 like some other Ricoh compacts was a pretty good one even though I not clicked with it entirely. I found the R3 to be more to my liking which can be very capable if it have a good ...
  • XT1 and the XF 35mm 1.4 is likely a good combination, though rather bulky. As for Samsung NX30 with NX 30mm f2 which I believe is their equivalent to the XT1, though with smaller, slower lens. With ...
  • Replied in Coolpix 700
    The old Coolpix 700 which used same sensor as the 950 but a fixed 35mm lens. Was a great camera to begin with and up to quality results even in A4 prints. http://dpreview.com/reviews/nikoncp700/
  • Nice one. The Coolpix A and GR are good cameras indeed and there is firmware updates for both of them which speeds up the AF somewhat.
  • I don't see how a travelzoom compact (about 24 or 28 - 200mm) with 1" would go head to head against the Sony RX100 mk3. It would be two different cameras. RX100 with short but fast 24-70mm zoom vs ...
  • I doubt that Ricoh would disclose their plans. They are usually tight-lipped, not a company like Fujifilm which intentionally leak information to rumour-sites etc to create hype about some coming ...
  • The A16 zoom and it's rival, Leica X-vario looks much too bulky for me and have recently been outdone by Panasonic LX100 which have similar though somewhat shorter zoom-reach than these two. Leica ...
  • Yes, CA is a somewhat weak point for that zoom from my findings as well. Slightly worse than for the 500G / SE in fact. While Ricoh like other most other manufacturers have had minor problem with ...
  • Good to hear that. Actually I use most of my Ricoh cameras with sharpening set to either Soft or -1 to avoid the oversharpening problem. That and the Metering seems to be two long standing problem ...
  • Gonna be interesting to see what Nikon and Ricoh comes up with. If it is just a Coolpix A with a newer aps-c sensor or some real upgrades. Ricoh are unfortunately expected only to come up with a ...
  • I had a look at that grouptest of waterproof compacts back then and revisited it yesterday. The only of them with good image quality in terms of little NR seemed to be the Canon Powershot D30 which ...
  • At least Leica which traditionally overprices their cameras should have no major problem to handle the goodwill replacements.
    In fact it is rather Kodak/Platinum Equity which should pay for this...

  • One of the Ricoh Caplio 400G Wide which I linked to in an other thread should probably serve you well for quite some time to come and is joyful to use in rain or other harsh condition. Even the ...
  • We want the Adj-wheel from the GRDI back as well instead of that lever. I doubt it is going to happen though.
  • A person located in the UK have listed no less than six more or less well-used but working Ricoh Caplio 400G Wide digital cameras. He won't ship Worldwide but still to quite some countries if you ...
