Ricoh Theta hands-on: we explore Ricoh's 360-degree, app-controllable camera

By

The Ricoh Theta is a camera with a single purpose: it takes 360-degree panoramas and stitches them into spherical, navigable files within a few seconds. But there's no screen on this device, just two protruding wide-angle lenses that make it look like... >>

Ricoh GR review

By

There are high-end compact cameras and there are high-end compact cameras. The Ricoh GR most definitely fits into the latter group: there's an APS-C size sensor - the same size as found in many DSLR cameras - paired up with a fixed 28mm equivalent f/2.8... >>

Ricoh CX1 compact camera

The Ricoh CX1 looks stylish and is undoubtedly well made once you heft the all metal compact from its box, but looks otherwise unremarkable. The black liveried version we had to test has a rather simple control layout that belies the underlying complexity,... >>
