  • Excerpt: I have owned this camera for over a year now and I have to say I still love it. It is not a point and shoot, you have to learn the camera to get the best out of it, but once you do, you will love it.

  • Excerpt: I have had this camera for a few months and it takes awesome outdoor shots in full light! The Macro is just insane, crystal clear, zoom is also fantastic. I am so glad I bought this little gem. Problems: Low light issues

  • Excerpt: Great features in a small camera. I guess that is what everyone is attracted to by the R4. Here's what I like about it: It's quick. No shutter lag to speak of. Snap focus mode makes a quick camera exceptionally quick.

  • Excerpt: Ricoh's R-range of cameras are unique in offering a 28-200mm (35mm equiv') zoom lens range, with vibration correction technology, in such a small and reasonably priced digital compact. It was this spec that drew me to the R4, and I've been delighted with it.

  • Excerpt: The R4 produces excellent images - much better than might be expected from its size. It is an ideal complement to my fixed-focus Ricoh GR-D. For the price of two tiny cameras I get a highly portable wide range of lens utility and quality results.

  • Excerpt: Very fast, good resolution, good colours, sometimes a bit too sharp. But: no manual operations, no A-Mode, no + and - settings for exposure

  • Excerpt: I've chosen this camera with great care, being used to SLR. So I knew the flash is very very poor. Unfortunatly my camera has quite often problems with banding. But for the rest the camera is as expected: small, good zoom range and a surpricingly marvelous macro.

  • Excerpt: Had the camera 3 months now. I’m a keen amateur photographer, with a 35mm DSLR, and I spent many months looking for the “perfect” compact camera, for those occasions when you go for a stroll and don’t expect to need a camera but just might.
