A good camera overall but needs a gentle touch... The Ricoh RDC-6000 was my first digital camera, and overall it's been a good experience. As you can see below I've had a fair number of problems with this camera, but all in all I think it's quite good - the problems manifest themselves rarely - and once you get the hang of it they occur very rarely - I've taken several thousand photos with the camera and only had one lost photos incident since I got the 'hang' of the camera. Good things - ...

A great first digital camera, run over 12,000 photos with this camera, problems between light and dark areas of the subject matter, dark is very dark. A good overall package for the money. Problems: Camera changing from photo setting to overall setting by itself. When used with the external power supply there was excessive static build up on the camera case. The cammera is not consistent with photos and cannot handle indoor photos.

First the good points - Good quality of photos. Very good Macro capabilities. Excellent connectivity eg. video out, serial, usb etc, Good software. Fast downloading via usb. Small and light. Good Battery life. Cons - Poor construction - feels very flimsy and I am not comfortable to handle it a lot. Very fragile and feels cheap. No optical zoom, previous model had optical zoom. Terrible Low-light capabilities. Only small 8mb smartcard included. All in all not such a bad camera, however I am ...

Great for a beginner's digital camera user. Takes great outdoor pictures in natural light. Tends to produce pictures that appears to be dark indoors. Love the video function. Problems: Battery life is short.

Good for snaps but pics on the dark side having to brighten them in a paint programme. Dissapointed in the lack of sharpness and unable to resolve this. i feel focus is an important issue. worried about the dial on top. I feel it will break. Problems: freezing of lcd display and freezing on dowload.

At this link are some examples that I took http://searchmalta.com/cgi-local/photos/main.cgi?photographer=163&type=2&brand=0 . Problems: Not ...

Having used a friend's 1 Megapixel camera I was pleased to pick up a Ricoh 6000 for £199. Unfortunately the camera has done nothing but disappoint me and I've now returned the camera and exchanged it for a Fuji 1300 (of which I'm very pleased). On a positive note, the camera comes with excellent documantation and lots of cables (including a power supply). This is deffinately on to "try before you buy". Problems: Very noisy. Slow to take photos. Hard to get a good image without manually ...

I bought this camera in January. At first I was pleased with it, plenty of features to play with, but it felt insubstantial to hold (the casing's a bit cheap and "plasticy") and the fact that there was no lens cap was a concern. It did come with plenty of extras though; case, all the cables you might ever need and decent software. On the whole I was happy with the quality of the pictures it took but a number of problems (see below) made me give up on this camera last month and I bought a ...

Good camera. It's easy to use. Perfect for beginning photographers. It also has a lot of features, so I think it's also suitable for the more experienced photographer. Problems: The LCD froze up. Had to remove battery from camera to shut the thing down. This only happened once, when my computer crashed. Not a serious problem, I think. It's hard to remove the USB cable. I had to use quite some force to remove it.
