Fine little camera. Very compact, very lightweight. Big pros: 28 mm equiv. wide-angle, very short shutter lag, macro focus down to 1 cm. Optical VF is nice to have, even if it crops heavily in this case. Very long battery life with decent AA rechargeables (2000 mAh+). Straightforward user interfaces, Adj button makes improtant settings easily available. Problems: Flash weak and with small range of adjustment, tends to burn close-up shots and get unnoticeable from 2 m on. Recharge is slow, too. ...

I'm very happy with this camera I bought for 119 euro's a couple of weeks ago. It's very easy to use and I think the imagequality is very good for a 3MP. What I like the best is the 28 mm wide focus and the fact it's extreme fast for a compact. I can state that what you see on the screen, you will see on the picture, even if it's moving fast. Also the macro-mode is very nice, I made some thrilling macro's of a dragonfly and some other insects with it. To summarize, very good value for the money.

A very good camera and it's nice photo quality is really out of my expectation. Wide angle lens is clear and sharp. The focus is fast and excellent. The camera itself doesn't eat too many batteries.:-) It's price is comparatively cheaper than Canon's digi-cam with same level/function. Problems: NIL

Best camera I've ever had! It is my fourth digicam, and by far the nicest, despite somewhat lower image quality than my Olympus 750UZ. The autofocus is superb, very fast ingood light and extremely tolerant to low light. On several other points, it is significanly better designed than the Olympus. Manual focus in one obvious advantage. Menus and controls are very easy to navigate and the most important ones are easiest to find. Even though it lacks PASM modes, you still have most settings ...

this is the first digicam i've bought, and i've only bought it as a present for someone else, but still, i took a day and checked it out. why this one ? because i needed something with 28mm (or less), with a big optical zoom, and at the same time lightweigth. small, and not too expensive. these requirements left next to no options. experience: i took it to a football-stadium, packed with 60.000. the camera is tough enough to survive beeing tapped down by security guards and beeing used ...

I have to have a 28mm zoom lens, so when Ricoh announced the RX, i immedeately bought it and left my Nikon 5000 behind. The form factor and speed made it incomparably convienant to the Nikon. I know I must be giving up a bit in PQ, but I haven't noticed it. Problems: None

I picked this camera up in Hong Kong on a trip and was pleasantly surprised. I realised it had only 3.2 MP, but the image quality is much better than I expected. 8X10" prints are no problem. You can see an image here http://www.smpsolutions.com//R0010142.JPG It is pocketable, uses AA batteries (so never stuck recharging), is quick to power up and shoot and has a reasonably wide-angle lens. Plus it uses a non- proprietary storage medium. CF would be better, but at least SD cards aren't Sony ...

This is the second Ricoh camera I have owned - I recently upgraded from the G3, (which unfortunately got full of sand). Everything they said about this camera is true; the fast start up time is superb, the super fast shutter response (I think it’s even faster than the G3) and the 28-100mm zoom is a big bonus. It feels very comfortable and all the buttons are easily accessible, the larger screen really makes a difference. In Australia they have, like the previous cameras, packaged it with a ...
