By 7 October 2013

Ahead of the unveiling of the Pentax K-3 we had the chance to test out a pre-production model of this top-spec DSLR. And we like what we've seen from the top-spec camera's features. Despite various rumours Pentax has not pushed into the full-frame DSLR... >>

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

By 7 September 2013

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 6 August 2013

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 13 September 2010

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 CX3 compact camera

By 22 February 2010

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 GXR digital camera

By 4 January 2010

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 GXR digital camera - First Look

By 10 November 2009

When we first heard what Ricoh was planning with the GXR we had to stifle a giggle. One of the things we like about using a DSLR is swapping components around to best suit your environment, but the idea of sliding off the front of the camera seemed a... >>

Ricoh CX2 digital camera

By 15 October 2009

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 GR Digital Mk III digital camera

By 21 August 2009

The new Ricoh GR Digital Mk III marks a big step-up from the Mk II, previously the company’s quality compact for the enthusiast or professional needing a decent and pocketable back-up camera. The new camera has high image quality at its core, at least... >>
