Ricoh RDC-5300 review
I'm a novice to photography in general, so was apprehensive about investing this much in a camera. I've been pleasantly surprised at it's eas of use. I've used it on our camping trips, of which there are pics on http://mysportsmagazine.com . I was satisfied with the picture quality, until my buddy went with me to the drag races and I posted some of his pics along with mine. He uses a Canon EOS D30, which he spent over $2500 for. I paid $400 for my 5300 at Fry's, with an extra 32 meg memory card. I don't think his pics are 6x better than mine.
Battery life is very weak. Forget about using the LCD.
