Re: Any users of older Ricoh digicams?


The R3/R4/R5. Perhaps the only true consumer level camera with both phase-detect and contrast detect focus built in. I seem to recollect that there were three focus methods used by the camera. Hardly "hybrid" as I am sure that this was just the judicious combination of phase-detect and contrast-detect. Hardly "macro" which was more likely just slow contrast detect on it's own. I do know that "macro" could be used for slower, more precise, focusing over the full range of focus capability. Unlike other cameras using their "macro".

Perhaps someone can remind us?

Great images for an "old" camera - when we all worry ourself to death over what new feature the next model might bring.
