Ricoh GXR

Ricoh GXR Review thumbnail

The new Ricoh GXR is a camera unlike any other - it's not very often that we get to say that!

The GXR is also smaller than either a DSLR or the recent Micro Four Thirds cameras from Panasonic and Olympus. Can Ricoh succeed with their GXR interchangeable camera unit system?
