Ricoh GR Digital review

Digital Camera Review Test Appareil Photo Numerique Prueba camara digital Digitale Camera Test Dijital Kamera Incelemeleri Digitalkamera Test Digitalkamera
RicohRicoh GR Digital review : The analogue cameras include the so-called precious compacts; these are high quality compact cameras with an exceptionally outstanding lens. Some examples are: Konica Hexar, the Nikon 28Ti and the Ricoh GR. This latter one is now available in a digital version. It's obviously more than a Ricoh GR with an image sensor. Ricoh has developed a special lens and the only thing in common with the analogue version is its name. "The Ricoh GR Digital has an enormous potency to become the ideal digital camera for the seasoned rangefinder photographers. As a street photography enthusiast I was thrilled being able to test the Ricoh GR Digital for a longer period of time in combination with the ancillary lens attachment."
Ricoh GR Digital reviewGR Digital - Lens & Magnesium allow
The Ricoh GR Digital stands out for a number of things. The most obvious one is the lens. Not a zoom lens but one with a fixed focus equivalent to 28mm on a 35mm camera, offering a real wide angle. The lens is placed near the center of the camera, in a design that provides the photographer maximum balance for greater stability. The camera uses a magnesium-alloy case combining a stylish design with durability for maximum strength. Offers the first twin dial in a compact digital camera. You adjust the aperture in the front, and the shutter in the back. This allows a high degree of operability and flexibility when shooting in manual mode. The built-in strobe uses a pop-up system, preventing vignetting (gradual fading of the image at the edges).

Ricoh GR Digital for the street photographer
The GR Digital is a camera very much suitable for the street photographer and the 'available light' photographer. In other words: the user of the analogue rangefinders. On paper the GR Digital is also the ideal camera for this type of photographer. Wide angle is very popular among street photographers; you can get extremely close to the subject yet still capture a lot of the surroundings. A bright lens with a bright viewfinder certainly is ideal when you are shooting in dark environments.

Ricoh GR Digital firmware update
Some time ago, Ricoh announced the firmware update version 1.08 for the GR Digital. The firmware can be downloaded from Ricoh's website, and contains the following improvements:
• Fixes an error that the recording area of a RAW image data is shifted to the right side
• Corrects the condition values in setup data of shooting that are recorded in the Exif information.
• Improves accuracy of the spot AF algorithm.
• Fixes a printing error with some printers due to a failure on the PictBridge connection.
• Corrects a wrong display in the LCD when you start-up a camera in the Synchro-monitor mode.
