Ricoh GXR Camera Reviews Roundup
|LuminousLandscape: "The Ricoh has a 12 MP sensor, the Sony NEX 5n's is 16 MP, and the NEX-7 is 24MP. The extent to which this difference in resolution is important to any user will be a function of that person's particular needs. Certainly for large prints and extensive cropping the more megapixels the better. I have not had a chance to yet compare the GXR-M and the NEX 7. But I have been comparing the Ricoh against the NEX 5n, an..." - Oct 11 2011 More »|
|AshwinRao: "Let me reassure you that the focus assist feature, which you must enable in the menus, allows for great critical focusing of M mount lenses. I personally have used the color focus assist, which creates a shimmer to parts of the image, particularly hard edges, that are in focus as one adjusts their focal plane by rotating the focusing throw on their mounted lens....this feature is truly lovely, and allows for the eff..." - Sep 29 2011 More »|
|ThePhoblographer: "The Ricoh GXR is quite an amazing camera when you stay out of the menus. The colors from the camera and the ability to use Leica M mount lenses is generally amazing. For the first time one can truly say that they've got a very good use for Non-Leica M mount lenses. This comes from years of people saying, "If you buy a Leica, get Leica lenses." The GXR takes that statement and flips it right on its hea..." - Sep 07 2011 More »|
|SeriousCompacts: "I like this little camera! It's unobtrusive, easy to carry, sturdy, customisable, and the 12MP sensor performs adequately. The 2 lenses I tried worked nicely, though I would have preferred a faster than f/2.5 aperture on the 50mm. The camera is a bit slow to process images and shot-to-shot times are longish in single-shot mode; for my style of shooting that was fine, but I know it will annoy other shooters. Autofocu..." - Jul 21 2011 More »|

I love this camera. I've used many systems trying to find the perfect street photographer / versatile carry around camera, and this is it.

All Nikon gear now sold, except the FM3a for collectors value. 2) Canon - Film system including EOS 3, EOS Elan II,...
- Apr 19 2011 Awesome!, NJC
This is my first ever review of a product, from any website. I absolutely love this camera. I spent quite a bit of time researching. Top reasons I purchased (pros): Pros 1) Liked the idea of the modular sensor/lens. 2) Upcoming module that would handle a Leica M lens. 3) All reviews pointed at extra solid construction - I have to agree - its a rock. (but not too...
- Dec 17 2010 Great system, macsareback
This is a hidden gem for photographers, this system may be pricey for the lenses with larger sensors, but you can literally store this camera in any bag. It's the most portable SLR system out there, and well built. I recommend to any serious photographer that they get this system. This company takes it users seriously and releases updates for the software as fast as possible....
- Mar 24 2010 An excellent camera, ImportFood
I'm not a professional photographer but I use a digital camera for work. There are very sophisticated reviews of this camera on professional camera review websites, but here is a review from a basic user. Ricoh cameras are hard to find, as most retailers offer Canon, Nikon, Sony, etc. I became a Ricoh fan in the late 1980s, using a very inexpensive point/shoot camera. The pictur...
