Gary Wolstenholme has posted his review of the Ricoh GR at ePhotozine. Ricoh GR Digital is a point-and-shoot digital camera with 8.1 Megapixel CCD, a fixed F2.4 focal length for the newly-developed GR 28mm wideangle lens and 2.5″ LCD screen.
“The level of detail recorded is very good, edges are sharp and there is very little sign of chromatic abberations. The performance remains good when using the optional wide-angel converter, the images are very slightly softer with a small drop in contrast, which is much better than I expected.
Pro: Clarity of images, Build quality, No-nonsense design, Optional wide angle converter, Macro mode.”
Cons: Display blackout when using continuous shooting, Time taken to write RAW images, Auto white-balance tends to create a strong cyan cast.
