Excerpt: From the field - Some that studiotesting not always cover I'm going to compare it to the 400G which I had. Operation is imo very quick actually, once I got used to it. The same goes for the 400G *Noisiness - General. The G600 is extremely silent except for the buttons (everyone except the power and shutter release) which clicks a little loud for my taste. The 400G is dead silent on that criteria *AF and zoom noise and general focusing. G600: Noiseiness.
Excerpt: There are some surprisingly excellent features in the scene-modes. But the camera does lack an M-mode. The IQ really is pretty good, but I would not recommend big crops or shooting too often at high ISO`s. Use up to ISO 100, and make the light work for you...then the images will display good depth and colour. The camera, like all the good Ricohs, remains quite pricey. You should get this only of you need a level-7 waterproof and level-5 bash-proof camera.
Excerpt: Bought the Ricoh G600 specifically for use as a waterproof and robust camera that I could have with me all the time on a 10 day white-water rafting descent of Tasmania’s Franklin River. I chose the G600 so that I could use the same DB60 batteries as the GRD and R4 (as well as AAAs). Camera worked fine in all situations. G600 appears designed for simplicity and it is easy to use with gloves on – shake the water off and snap away.
Excerpt: I am going back to Antarctica in October, so I thought an upgrade from the Ricoh 500G I used on the previous 2 trips was attractive because of the extra reach at the tele end of the zoom (though you lose the optical viewfinder), smaller size and lighter weight, and the couple of extra megapixels (should give a bit extra detail for enlargement). I've just donesome comparison shots between the two (a large bookshelf in my study, using flash at ISO100).
Summary: + Mångsidig 28-140mm zoom + Ricoh har det bästa användargränssnittet. + ADJ-button gör det snabbt och enkelt att ändra exponeringkompensation, Iso och vitbalans. Den kan även programeras så att man kan ändra fokus-metod m.m. + Liten och behändig. Slinker lätt ner i framfickan på jeansbyxor. + Ganska snabb fokus så länge det är ljust ute. + Snapfokus.
