Summary: I had this camera for a few years, then left it in a rental car. I was totally bummed. I looked and looked until I found this one. Like new! This camera takes beautiful shots once you learn how to use it. Aperture and shutter priority work well. It's like having an SLR in a point and shoot. As stated in just about every review I've read, it is a bit noisy after iso 200. But no biggie, there's Photoshop! This camera has been discontinued, so they're hard to find.
This camera is a rugged piece of art at a value price.

Summary: I purchased this camera used on ebay for $200.00 it included the VF1 viewfinder, extetion tube,lens shade, Caplio strapand a after market lcd flip up sun screen wich I highly recomend. just under a month ago. The build quality is outstanding, it is smaaler than one may think but it fits the hand perfect with help from its rubber grips. I purchased this camera looking for a higher quality camera in the point and shoot size factor.
Summary: I like Ricoh GX100 because of its RAW format capabilities, the manual controls, the build in quality and the 10M sensors versus 12M in the GX200. The camera is a bit slow on RAW writing but I can live with it. It is a great camera for any one who wants to travel lite and to have an excellent photography tool in hands.
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. It also possess so many features that you can make of your pictures a piece of Art. 100% Guaranteed!!!
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. It is a camera you can be a photographer with even if it is not a DSLR. It works.
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: 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. The GX100 picture quality is superb and it fits nicely into a pants pocket, even with the external viewfinder attached.
