Ricoh GR

  • Conclusion: If you're a fan of large sensors and fixed prime lenses, things are really starting to look up for you. For years, your selection of cameras has been fairly limited. This year, that's finally changed, with the debuts in quick succession of the Nikon Coolpix A and Ricoh GR. Both companies have clearly had the same photographer in mind with their creations, and on paper the two cameras are incredibly hard to separate.
  • Pros: Good ergonomics, Light and compact for its lens and sensor size, Well-suited to single-handed shooting, Extremely (!!) customizable, Sharp, detailed images, Very good high ISO performance, Excellent dynamic range in RAW files, Excellent f/2.8 lens, with built-in ND filter, Low lens distortion (with no correction performed by processor), Fast autofocus, Very good low-light focusing (though can be slow), Very fast prefocused shutter lag, Bright, vivid RGBW LCD monitor, ...

  • Conclusion: Priced at £600, the Ricoh GR is not only (currently, June 2013) the most affordable APS-C compact on the market, it's also incredible value for money considering the host of features it has on offer. The GR delivered impressive results, offering consistent sharpness throughout the aperture range - both at the centre and edges of the frame - with Noise being well controlled during our ISO test.

  • Pros: Extremely sharp lens, Excellent noise performance, Quick performance, Very compact, Price compared to competition, 3 customisable function buttons, AdobeDNG raw file format, 8fps shooting when shooting raw, Interval shooting

  • Excerpt: De har længe været en slags underhund. Ricoh har ligesom alle andre lavet nogle møgkameraer, men samtidig har de haft en serie kompaktkameraer, der ufortjent har stået i skyggen af de mere kendte kameramærker. Deres GR-serie har altid været blandt de bedste prof-kompakter, lige siden serien kom i 1990’erne.
  • Pros: Meget høj råfil-kvalitet, Skarp optik, Fleksibel opsætning, Solidt bygget
  • Cons: Begrænset billed-buffer, Upræcis AF i svagt lys, Moderate videoegenskaber, Batteritiden

Test: Ricoh GR (Luxus-Digitalkamera)

CHIP Online
30 June 2013
  • Excerpt: Fazit: Die Ricoh GR begeistert im Test mit erstaunlicher Bildqualität und hohem Tempo. Kein Wunder, denn in der richtig handlichen GR steckt die hochwertige Technik einer DSLR. Zoomen können Sie mit dem Objektiv jedoch nicht, die GR bietet eine 28mm-Festbrennweite. Zusammen mit dem hohen Preis kommt die GR daher nur für ambitionierte Fotografen infrage, die ihre Bedürfnisse genau kennen.
  • Pros: Lichtstarkes Objektiv, Sehr gute Bildqualität, Überzeugendes Display, Autofokus schnell ...
  • Cons: aber nicht immer treffsicher

  • Summary: Ricoh GR – компактный аппарат с фикс-объективом 28 экв.мм F/2.8 и крупной матрицей 16 Мп формата APS-C без низкочастотного фильтра. Другие параметры: режим 35 экв.мм при 10 Мп, монитор 3" разрешения 1.2 миллиона точек, диапазон ISO 100–25600, поддержка 12-битного формата RAW, серийная съемка до 4 кадров в секунду, встроенный нейтральной фильтр ND4, видеосъемка Full HD 1080p при 24/25/30 кадр/с.
  • Pros: Крупная матрица формата APS-C, прекрасное качество снимков, особенно на низких ISO., Очень небольшие габариты корпуса, для камеры с APS-C матрицей ., Режим «Обрезка 35 мм», использующий центральную часть кадра (10 Мп) с эквивалентным фокусным расстоянием f=35 экв.мм., Наличие встроенного нейтрального фильтра ND4, помогающего реализовать потенциал светосильного объектива., Наличие разъема «горячий башмак» для подключения внешней вспышки., Набор экспорежимов PASM, а так...
  • Cons: Фокусное расстояние объектива фиксировано (понятно, что это особенность самого типа камеры, однако это все же ограничение функциональности)., Нет оптической стабилизации изображения (сказывается не только на фото-, но и на видеосъемке)., Монитор неповоротный., Отсутствие оптического видоискателя., Нет сюжетных программ (нормально для серьезных камер, но необычно для фотолюбителей при апгрейде с младших компактов)., Нет популярной функции панорамной съемки одной провод...
