Ricoh GR Digital review

Solid build & good manual controls. Serious issues (complaints) with colour, video quality & placement of one button. My 4th digital compact and first Ricoh. I cannot recommend this camera. Although purchased cheap as an out going model for $450 ($999 when first released) my daughter's $150 Canon has better colour management and video quality. Provided software not compatible with Vista. Wide adapter & viewfinder accessories way over priced. Not recommended.


Jpeg colour is flat and unrealistic. Bright colours are dulled down and on a recent trip to Japan with overcast skies this problem was accentuated. Totally disillusioned with my new pride & joy. Friend's Nikon & daughter's cheap Canon infinitely better. Video quality a joke. Flash button right where your thumb wants to sit. Supplied software not compatible with Vista.
