Ricoh GR Review

Digitaltrends
16 September 2013
  • Conclusion: As much as we like to save money, the Coolpix A is a better overall camera than the Ricoh GR. The Nikon’s images are sharper and colors more accurate. The fact the Coolpix has built-in image stabilization while the GR does not is definitely a factor.
  • Pros: Compact size, large APS-C sensor, 28mm prime lens, Solid photos with enough light, Extensive controls and customization
  • Cons: No focus ring on lens, Dual mics are mono, No built-in image stabilization, Noisier than main competitor

  • Summary: DSLR image quality finally comes to Ricoh's well-respected enthusiast compact. The GR retains its predecessor's excellent and customizable user interface, making it a pleasure to use as a pocketable wide-angle photographers' camera.
  • Pros: Excellent image quality in Raw, very good in JPEG, Sharp lens with consistency at wide apertures and close working distances, Large sensor in genuinely small body, Highly customizable and responsive user interface, Excellent build quality, Extensive feature set (built-in ND filter, Snap Focus, ti...
  • Cons: Occasional tendency to under-exposure, Unflattering color profile embedded in DNG files, Extremely limited movie capabilities, Lack of external charger makes keeping a second battery charged awkward, Limited buffer for continuous Raw shooting

  • Conclusion: When we first picked up the GR, we didn't think its tiny, plastic body would hold a candle to its beefy competition, such as the leather and metal X100s or the large bodied super zooms. But boy, we were wrong.

Ricoh GR camera review

Digital Arts
23 August 2013
  • Excerpt: The Ricoh GR is a technological marvel as much as it is a camera. if you didn’t know better, you could mistake it for a typical point and shoot. But the GR is more than that. Inside its 225g magnesium alloy body resides a 16.2 megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor that can produce high-quality raw files at...

No image stabilisation. JPEGs not as snappy and colourful as the Raw versions. Exposure compensation rocker switch conveni...

Ricoh GR review

  • Conclusion: If you've been stroking your chin about buying a fixed focal length compact camera with a large sensor then we're not surprised: the choices in this niche market are limited, while each available option has its limitations.
  • Pros: Image quality is exceptional, super-sharp lens, well priced considering the competition, plenty of customisation options, f/2.8 aperture, built-in ND filter (also works in auto), converter lenses and hotshoe for optical finder/accessories
  • Cons: Autofocus can be hit and miss, autofocus in low-light hunts to excess, battery life isn't good enough, no tilt-angle screen rules out waist-level work, limited buffer capacity for burst shooting, clunky manual focus

  • Excerpt: Ricoh GR är en diskret kamera, men handhavandet är besvärligt. Dessutom är bildkvaliteten en besvikelse, speciellt när man kommer över iso 3 200.
