Ricoh GR Digital IV review

 

A premium street photographer's compact with a fixed 28mm lens

Shoots raw ; Fast ; Customisable ; Excellent creative presets ; Superb LCD

Small image sensor ; Fixed wide lens limiting ; No HD video ; Weak 'ADJ.' controller ; Expensive

The Ricoh GR Digital IV is a high-end, premium priced compact camera that, superficially at least, appears to be little more than a re-badged version of 2009's GR Digital III.

Ricoh GR DIGITAL IV review

 

Ricoh goes for fast hybrid AF, for its full-featured compact. Camera owners tend to fall into one of three categories....

The new, faster hybrid AF system

Low-res video and high price

Ricoh has wisely decided to keep all the best features from the last model, while adding an improved engine, faster AF, continuous shooting and better low-light imagery. Perhaps Full HD and a lower price tag next time?
