Ricoh GXR with 50mm & 24-72mm Lens Units

Ricoh GXR with lens and viewfinder attachedI have taken delivery of this innovative and unique camera today in order to learn a bit about it so that I can write a review.

The GXR is a fascinating concept which reminds me a little of my medium format film days (in that the shutter was contained in the lens, rather than in the camera body).

It’s exciting that I’m struggling to pre-judge this camera as I can’t quite place it in a neat little box; it’s not a DSLR, but it’s not really a compact either.

In amongst the various files I have been sent there is all sorts of information about developments of the system and some news about the next lens units expected. These will be published on TDM soon, once I have decided the best way to work this review.

This camera is making me think; I like that!

If anyone has any experience of this system and would care to share, or if anyone has anything specific they would like to know, please get in touch.
