Nice review; it may make me consider the GXR system! We’ll see…
Just to tell you that some references to the CX3 review remain here! Please be careful when you reuse some previous sections…

Hmmm… That’s a lot to ask for a compact… it may be modular, but is still a lot.

On the positive side noise is well controlled as the ISO increases and image sharpness looks pretty good.

Nice review.

One thing i did not notice was if the optical zoom worked for videos? 

The image stabilizatio seems to be less effective than some other cameras, is that a correct observation?

why do the hx5v and especially the ricoh cx-3 get 4.5 for image quality ? methinks they use the same sensor and the cx-3 is even the same manufaturer ... strange to see :-) is there any reason to this ?

I gave a quick try to two high ISO samples in LR3 and I have to say that I’m impressed with the results! P10 JPEG is ugly at high ISO (especially in shadows). But they are very usable after processing the DNG files in LR3. Here are two quick examples…

There is visible luminance noise in them, but this is how I like it. If you consider the luminance noise a problem, it can be further improved. I just like noisier photos (except color noise of course).

Concerning the images, I didn’t see any special quality.I can’t persuade myself to buy it.

Anyone know if the dynamic range double shot works when saving DNG files?

The P10 makes even more sense when mated to the accessory finder.

I’ve been checking out your reviews trying to get a comprehensive grasp of the current EVIL camera market. I have one question? How can you give this camera more than a 3 or 2 for value, its astronomically expensive next to the offerings from Olympus/Sony/Samsung, heck even Panasonic.

The entry price is not too offensive considering what the horrendously overpriced G12 Canon and Nikons irk is, but god help you if you want a GXR with a better lense and sensor.

im a happy owner of gxr and two diff lens—one thing that sucks about the camera… there is only one place in the country (usa) to fix it. otherwise—i like the unit.

I think that this combination will good for Street Photography. Together with A12 28mm Unit (which has large sensor) very good in low light street scenes.

Sadly, but Ricoh made in China.
