DigiCamReview.co.ukRicoh GR Digital review at DigiCamReview : Our friend Joshua Waller from DigiCamReview has published his Ricoh GR Digital camera review. The Ricoh GR Digital incorporates a CCD with 8,13 effective Megapixels, a newly developed high-performance lens, image-processing algorithms, and other innovations, as well as low noise and low chromatic aberration. Ricoh also developed two key components for the Ricoh GR Digital camera: a F2.4 fixed focal length GR lens with f = 5.9mm (28mm converted to 35mm format camera) having high resolution depictive power; and a new GR Engine image-processing system featuring natural composition and rich, fine gradations while further lowering noise in all images.
Ricoh GR Digital review at DigiCamReviewRicoh GR-D - Responsiveness
According to Joshua Waller: "The camera is fairly quick to switch on and take photos, being ready in just under two seconds, the lens extending seems to slow the camera down. Focusing seemed quick even in low-light thanks to the bright focus-assist lamp, although focusing did occasionally struggle when in macro mode in low-light. The playback mode is also fairly quick. The camera shutter response seemed very quick (under 0.1 seconds) when pre-focused - and shot to shot time was quick, with a delay of just over 1 second between shots without flash."

Ricoh GR Digital camera - Noise and Dynamic range
Joshua continues: "Outside, the camera had very good colour, with good contrast and saturation. There was good detail although images did seem slightly soft. There seemed to be good dynamic range, with a slight tendency to overexpose, although this can easily be corrected by using exposure compensation. Noise seemed quite low, especially on sunny days. I didn't notice jpeg artefacts in the images. There was very little purple fringing in photo."

Ricoh GR Digital compact camera - Colour and Wide angle lens
"Image quality is very good to excellent. Images have very good natural colour, with good saturation, contrast, detail, and low purple fringing. Images were slightly soft (although sharpness can be increased in-camera), and images were noisy when higher ISO settings were used. The camera did a good job focusing even in low light thanks to the focus-assist lamp - however macro focusing in low light was occasionally unsuccessful. I did not notice vignetting in photos, and there was very low barrel distortion considering the wide angle lens," concludes Joshua Waller. You want to learn more about the Ricoh digital camera?
