  • 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...
  • 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,...
  • 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 ...

  • 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 opera...
  • 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...

Ricoh GXR Review

Digital Photography School

  • Excerpt: Smaller companies often take a different and braver route in satisfying demand for digital cameras. This particular bunch of boxes is Ricoh’s answer to the need for more compact, versatile, yet more powerful digital capture devices.

Ricoh's GXR works better as a concept camera and price is far too high to justify unusal design

  • Summary: It’s an original concept but one that doesn’t really solve any problems, while the price is only a little short of absurd

Ricoh GXR A12

  • Conclusion: The A12 unit brings higher expectations which the focussing and shooting rate can’t meet. It’s great for macro and good for portraits but not for much else and for this you are paying over £1000.

Ricoh GXR S10

26 February 2010
  • Conclusion: Built to last and armed with a plethora of photographer pleasing controls, but it’s still a compact unit with average image quality overall. The 50mm unit is better but the pricing is outrageous.

Ricoh GXR review

electricpig
4 February 2010
  • Summary: Interesting stuff, and the 50mm unit is very impressive – but it’s all way too pricey for what it actually delivers
  • Pros: There’s nothing else like it, sharp 50mm macro lens, bright, hi-res screen
  • Cons: Slow autofocus, expensive, only two front modules at present

Ricoh GXR : Kompaktkamera mit Wechselmodulen

netzwelt
17 November 2010
  • Summary: Überzeugendes und ausbaufähiges System Ricoh legt mit der GXR ein überzeugendes Konzept für eine Systemkamera vor. Die Bedienung und der Wechsel der Module gestaltet sich ähnlich einfach wie bei den kompakten Micro-Four-Thirds-Kameras.
  • Pros: Bildqualität, Staubschutz bei Modulwechsel
  • Cons: Teuer, Eingeschränktes Modulangebot
