the ricoh r-10: digital camera

below: the GX200 model with the über cool add on LC-1 auto lens cap, a must!

at first glance, the ricoh r-10/gx200 digital camera appears to be rather serious. its wide angle 28mm lens and minimal styling points to great possibilities. i tried the gx200 over a dinner and was rather amazed at the quality in low light and its tactile feel. i was about ready to purchase one, however i have read terrible reviews about the mechanism and the noise at high ISO levels in the r10. the issue are to be confirmed and if they apply to the gx in actual review of the camera and will re-appear in fuller description at a later date. hold off for now, and if you already have one love to hear. by xy
