Ricoh GXR

CNET
19 April 2014
  • Summary: The Ricoh GXR camera system shouldn't work, but it does. Because every lens unit also includes a sensor, the system is pricey, and the variation in sensor sizes means you won't necessarily get dSLR photo quality all the time. Yet, as a tool for taking pictures, it's just brilliant.
  • Cons: Every time you buy a new lens unit, you're buying a new sensor; different lens units include differently sized sensors; generally expensive.

Test: Ricoh GXR With A12 and S10 Camera Units

Pop Photo
1 August 2011
  • Excerpt: That overused adjective “unique” finds a wholly appropriate partner in the Ricoh GXR, which turns the concept of the interchangeable-lens compact (ILC) on its head. Unlike ILC cameras from Olympus, Panasonic, Samsung, and Sony, the GXR employs interchangeable camera modules, each housing its own lens, imaging sensor, and processing engine.

Review – Ricoh GXR + 28mm f/2.5 and 50mm f/2.5 Modules

Enticing the Light
14 July 2011
  • Excerpt: Back in November 2009 Ricoh introduced the GXR modular camera system, in which lenses and sensors come in a single block (module, but called “lensor” by Thom Hogan) and the body is a separate entity, as is the viewfinder, either optical or electronic.

  • Summary: The Ricoh GXR/A12 50mm F2.5 Macro offers excellent, DSLR-like image- and build quality in a fairly compact package. However, the camera is slightly let down by its sometimes slow and/or unreliable contrast detect AF.
  • Pros: Very good detail and sharpness at base ISO, Good dynamic range with smooth highlight roll-off, Very good performance in low light, low noise levels and good retention of detail at the same time, Excellent build quality and handling, Compact dimensions (for a camera with an APS-C sensor), Highly customizable and flexible user interface with a large number of external controls, Very nice 3.0 inch, 920,000 pixel TFT screen, Good operational speed (but AF slow in low ligh...
  • Cons: Contrast detect AF slow, hunting and occasionally unreliable in anything but good light, No image stabilization, Battery life not great, Comparatively low-spec video mode (720p but no manual controls, no focus, no external mic), Fastest shutter speeds not available at largest apertures, Some minor glitches in the user interface (see operations and handling summary on live view page), Tripod mount not in the center of the lens, Price

  • Summary: The GXR S10 24-72mm VC comes with the control interface and build quality of a semi-pro DSLR but only produces compact camera image quality. Given its price point the S10 probably makes most sense as an additional module for existing GXR/A12 users who do not want to familiarize themselves with yet another user interface.
  • Pros: Decent resolution in ideal shooting conditions - bright, sunny days (but soft low contrast detail), Excellent build quality and handling, Highly customizable and flexible user interface with a large number of external controls, Very nice 3.0 inch, 920,000 pixel TFT screen, Good operational speed, New Multi-P white balance mode for mixed lighting, Decent lens with good corner-to-corner sharpness and little distortion, Optional distortion correction (does not work when ...
  • Cons: Blurring of detail in low contrast scenes, even in good light and at base ISO, Heavy noise reduction at high ISOs results in loss of detail and unattractive 'noise blobs', Battery life not great, Low-spec video mode (VGA, no manual controls, no focus, no external mic), Fastest shutter speeds not available at largest apertures, Some minor glitches in the user interface (see operations and handling summary on live view page), Tripod mount not in the center of the lens, ...

  • Summary: The GXR P10 28-300mm VC comes with GXR's excellent user interface and operation but the lens/sensor combination in the camera module only produces average compact camera image quality.
  • Pros: Decent image quality in good light (but soft low contrast detail and some shadow noise), Very useful zoom range, Excellent build quality and handling, Highly customizable and flexible user interface with a large number of external controls, Very nice 3.0 inch, 920,000 pixel TFT screen, Good operational speed, New Multi-P white balance mode for mixed lighting, Optional distortion correction (does not work when shooting RAW+JPEG), Efficient Image Stabilization system, E...
  • Cons: Smearing of low contrast detail and shadow noise, even in good light and at base ISO, Fairly strong corner softness at some focal lengths, High chroma noise levels at high sensitivities, Battery life not great, No manual controls, exposure compensation or stereo sound in in movie mode, Some minor glitches in the user interface (see operations and handling summary in S10 review ), Tripod mount not in the center of the lens, Price
