Summary: The Ricoh GX100 is a great camera and a bargain at the Amazon price (it was $600 when it first came out). I previously used a Nikon SLR with wide angle and telephoto lenses and the GX100 comes close to reproducing the Nikon's functionality with much improved mobility.
Summary: Let me just add to the previous reviewers by saying that while I have owned and used numdrous high quality point and shoot cameras - Canon, Nikon, Panasonic - this is the one I want in my hands when I want to do some photography.
Summary: I Bought this camera for my Wife and let me Tell You is Fascinated with it. The quality of the pictures is Amazing. The pictures you can take with it have nothing to miss from a Nikon camera. The colors are so Beautiful and Vivid.
Summary: I needed a small camera for digiscoping which requires specific parameters. The GX-100 fit the bill exactly. I was also pleased that it also excellent for normal use as well. I highly recommend it.
Summary: 5.0 out of 5 stars I love this Camera!!!, May 20, 2008 By Randy Shelton "Galavoxx" (San Francisco, CA United States) - See all my reviews (REAL NAME) I used to have a Ricoh GR1s 35mm point and shoot that I carried with me everywhere.
Summary: The reviews above have described this camera to a "T". Let me piggy back and add what I enjoy about this camera. 1. Wide angle! 24mm is great on a little compact like this. 2. You can store your favorite settings in one of two memory positions.
Summary: I love my Canon digital SLR, but I rarely take it anywhere because it's so big and heavy. The GX100 isn't exactly shirt pocket sized, but it is tiny compared to my SLR, so I don't mind taking it along pretty much anywhere.
Summary: Digital compacts can be frustrating--endless menus, difficult access to manual control, screens that fade out in bright sun, no wide-angle, no RAW.... Not the Ricoh GX100! The control system is logical and allows customizing buttons to bring up features you use most often.
