  • Well there is the Fujifilm X70 with tilt-screen and also Ricoh GRII. Without knowing for sure, I believe Ricoh managed to get on top of the dreaded stuck shutter issue with the GRII as I've not ...
  • Ricoh Caplio GX100 with DW-6 wide-angle converter and EVF VF-1 ...
  • Sure though I hope that Ricoh gets it right with the GRIII, if it ever is to be one. GR and GRII is surely good and if there will be no GRIII then I may eventually buy a GRII anyway. I thought the ...
  • My newest camera is the Leica X1 from 2009 and Ricoh Caplio 500SE from 2007. But the two cameras I use most are older than that. Ricoh Caplio R3 from 2005 and Contax TVS Digital from 2002.
  • While I don't know for sure it is likely to be Sony which manufactured the sensors for C-5060 and C-7070.
  • Created user review thread Still very capable
    The good: Optically superb Zeiss-zoomlens with very smooth out of focus rendering in macro. Short shutter-release lag (although AF is somewhat slow). Mostly very intuitive to use. It's a camera ...
  • I for one wouldn't go for the repair unless you have not already got the dreaded shutter-failure sorted under the warranty-period. The first GR have the problem that the shutter may fail at around ...
  • Replied in XZ-10 vs. SH-1
    The XZ-10 have faster biggest aperture at the wide end of the zoom, but the sensor is still 1/2.3". It supports Raw and I believe there is NR-settings to avoid some of the smudge for jpegs. Samples ...
  • Not so good. Hope that Pentax are working hard on their own mirrorless system or they may find themselves on the backfoot yet another time. Wonder what Pentax is going to ry next in the medium ...
  • Even though I don't have a GR myself I appreciate this initiave a lot. There is at least two other forums in which I think it may be worthwhile for you to spread this. https://Ricohforum.com and ...
  • Sure GRII, Coolpix A and X70 don't have zoom. But neither the thickness of the G1 X MKIII. They are different cameras.

  • I didn't have my GX100 for very but didn't think it was slow except slightly so for the 4 secs it took for it to save a Raw-file which not was too bad. I always thought that the GXR S10 would be ...
  • Yes, too bad that Ricoh abandoned that series of cameras and also we have not got a 1" sensor GRD either although there probably is a small though enough niche market for one. Especially as 1" and ...
  • As MattTemple mentioned about the sharper lens, I think I share that opinion. I didn't have the GX100 very long and don't remember how the two lcd screens are vs each other. Lens cap, I'm not a big ...
  • The NR algorithm is not the same as for GRDI, it is clearly more towards at least a slightly, if not, somewhat, smoother output as far as NR go. That probably was the result, likely after criticism ...
  • I've not used CX1 either as far as I can remember. But here is a link to some sample images from a review. http://dcresource.com/reviews/ricoh/cx1-review/gallery.shtml It is a matter of taste. Some ...
  • I doubt that it would help. What surprised me somewhat however was that his shutter managed 40000 while I believe that it usually fail already shortly  after 10000 from msot of the others which ...
  • And that is not too bad. I've not tested the built in B&W mode a whole lot really but enough to know that it works well. Especially with iso 200, 400 and perhaps 800 as well. R4 have iso 1600, but ...
  • That's too bad. Ricoh should acknowledge the problem and cover even these which have passed the two-year warranty by repair the camera on goodwill, the way it is meant to be, with manufacturer ...
  • Actually I believe the GX-series was lower end premium range at the being. Sitting only below the GRD-series. I had a GX100 for a while and while the jpeg output could have been better due to ...
