Trusted Reviews
8 November 2005
  • Summary: A digital rangefinder camera? Surely if you snubbed the move to SLR you're even less likely to go digital - Cliff certainly thinks so.

Epson R-D1 Digital Rangefinder

Pocket Lint
20 June 2005
  • Pros: Good magnesium alloy build and good sensor (similar to that housed in the Nikon D70 D-SLR); accepts Leica M and L mount lenses (the latter via an adapter) RAW capture.
  • Cons: Menus are little on the slow side, totally manual control may not be to everyone’s liking.

EPSON R-D1

CNET
22 January 2007
  • Summary: 作為首款數位RF相機,R-D1的傳統造型手感、可支援M鏡頭的特性令人感動。如今規格與功能都稍舊,但有耐心慢慢拍仍有極佳成品展現。玩不起Leica嗎?價格僅M8一半(目前可能更低)的R-D1,是較平價的好選擇。
  • Pros: 1.完全仿古造型與手感; 2.可搭配Leica M鏡頭; 3.觀景窗較大; 4.價格只有M8的一半。
  • Cons: 1.對焦疊影框較不清楚; 2.無連拍、自拍功能; 3.拍攝效能不高。

  • Conclusion: Deze R-D1 lijkt een grap of het resultaat van een weddenschap tussen Epson en Cosina. Epson: �Wedden dat wij jullie meetzoekercamera kunnen ombouwen tot de eerste digitale meetzoekercamera?� Cosina: �Nou, laat dat dan maar eens zien!
  • Pros: beeldkwaliteit, robuust, geen paarse randen
  • Cons: vaste brandpuntsafstanden, groot, zwaar, traag, duur
