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 CX4

By

Long before Panasonic ever incorporated a larger than standard-at-the-time 3x optical zoom into one of its pocket compacts, Ricoh was doing it to critical plaudits but less mainstream fanfare. The CX4, a fast off the blocks upgrade to the CX3, continues... >>

Ricoh might not make the coolest looking digital compacts - in fact, design wise, they're uniformly rather drab. But at least the manufacturer channels its efforts towards where it matters most, namely the cameras' image quality plus useful wide-angle... >>

Ricoh's brave new release in the GXR is a camera of two halves - literally. With the intention of providing a photographic "solution" that will take digital SLR-like professional quality photographs whilst, unlike a DSLR, being small enough to fit in... >>

Ricoh CX2 digital camera

The Ricoh CX2 is basically the same as the CX1, it looks stylish and is undoubtedly well made; once again we had the black liveried version to test, though silver and a two-tone version with a coloured top plate are available. A simple control layout... >>

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,... >>

Ricoh Caplio R5 digital camera

By

My first impressions of the R5 are of a svelte, compact digital compact, its all-metal body is both sturdy and nice to hold thanks to a subtle curve (accentuated by the body styling) on the right side of the body. Out of the box the machine seems to fit... >>

Video editing has come to the laptop, but can your humble laptop be turned into a video editing console just like that, without trading it in for a Vaio? We test the Grabster from Terratec to see if the promise lives up to the hype. For a long time, the... >>

Ricoh Caplio R1

By

If you think you've seen this camera somewhere before, it’s because the spec is virtually identical to Ricoh's Caplio RZ1. This model features a 4.8x, 28-135mm (35mm film camera equivalent) wide-zoom lens. Its brother, the Caplio RZ1, features a slightly... >>

Ricoh Caplio G3

Sharing the same name as one of the most popular Canon cameras, this Ricoh version isn’t the all-powerful number that its namesake suggests. Instead the Caplio G3 is a entry level three mega pixel camera that offers a host of options and a very fast... >>
