Great little camera


from Newton,MA  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

I bought this little hard-to-find gem for its macro capability. It is the perfect complement for my Nikon D200 for which I did not want to buy a macro lens. Although the Ricoh does not have a raw mode, it's jpeg-processing does not seem to add any artifacts that I can detect in Photoshop, nor does it do anything to the color or sharpness that prevents me from doing my own fine tuning. The other obvious convenience is that now I can have a very good, unobtrusive camera with me any time, in particular when I want to "travel light".
