Summary: With the same lens and image sensor specifications as the cheaper Ricoh CX3 compact camera, you'd be forgiven for missing the point of the new and more expensive Ricoh GXR and P10 camera unit combination.
Conclusion: Ricoh has come the closest yet to delivering DSLR -like quality and versatility in compact form, though the GXR is still too tight a squeeze for a trouser pocket with or without its lens combos attached.
Pros: Innovative idea that’s presently "one of a kind" as the world’s smallest and lightest interchangeable lens camera, rugged magnesium alloy construction ensures this concept feels "built to last"
Cons: Pricey when investing in the GXR system from scratch, busy menu screens and spindly typeface make functions hard to find and quickly navigate
Summary: The Ricoh GXR is a remarkably mature first-generation product in an intriguing new photographic system, with excellent handling and image quality that will instantly appeal to all photographers who want to take pictures first and talk about gear second.
Excerpt: Сегодняшний наш тест посвящен даже не столько новой камере, сколько новой системе. Модульную камеру GXR с набором аксессуаров компания Ricoh представила в конце 2009 года. И сразу наделала много шума в среде фотографов.
