Ricoh GR II First Impressions

"Keep it simple!"

Better photos than her XR phone. If you're a casual photographer, you can't beat this price, get it now. In some reviews this Ricoh GR II is said to be heavy. This is great because my mother likes the viewfinder and I like the LCD. So glad I chose the Ricoh GR II.

Ricoh GR II Final Thoughts

"Shots were FANTASTIC!"

It’s taken its place as my go to camera, which is what I intended it for. Make sure you format first or it may fry on you. Its small and very comfortable to hold and use, which is great cuz I have small hands. If the battery does run low, you can pop in normal alkaline. A duck flying by very quickly skimming the water over Lake Washington.

2. Ricoh 15039 Ricoh Digital Camera

Ricoh 15039 First Impressions

"Very impressed overall!"

One thing that worries me is the little flap that covers the USB connector. That is the reason I bought this Ricoh 15039. With a prime lens, zoom is one less thing you worry about. The initial charge using the Ricoh 15039 to charge the battery took about 2 hours. Auto-ISO is on the conservative side, which I would like to have more control over.

Ricoh 15039 Final Thoughts

"Um wow, totally wrong."

After taking a photo, it would not focus or operate, or so it seemed. Fast shipping and everything packaged nicely. I bought this camera right before I went on vacation to Hawaii. After over 10,000 pictures, my Ricoh 15039 operates perfectly in every aspect. That is the reason I bought this Ricoh 15039.

"I take it when I travel."

Some reviewers have problems with clarity, but I certainly do not. Lastly, the complaints about battery life are totally valid. Plus I have various DSLRs and a beautiful Ricoh. This camera far exceeded my expectations. Manual focus would've been nice.

"Spectacular product!"

Excellent two characteristics in a Ricoh Digital Camera. Love the small compact size which will be perfect for traveling. I’m now wading through the manual before heading out to shoot photos. Takes great low light & fireworks pictures. I'm impressed with how Ricoh incorporated it seamlessly.

Ricoh Final Thoughts

"Not a fan of that."

Only downside is recovery after each shot, however rest of features make up for it. It wont replace a DSLR but it comers pretty close. While the 24-70 seems good, I can’t wait for a new Ricoh . I've researched this Ricoh A LOT and I only heard great things. Simple to figure out how to use, even for beginning photographers.

"The zoom is terrific."

Its small and very comfortable to hold and use, which is great cuz I have small hands. I feel that it takes better pictures than the DSC-HX50. But overall It is worth to buy and I totally recommend you to buy this bundle. Full manual, Shutter Priority and Aperture Priority. My old SX700 that was serviceable for years finally gave up and failed.
