The Ricoh GXR S10 is too expensive for what it offers and has nothing that makes it stand out from the competition. The GXR+S10 24-72mm module is solid, but it is far from being a best-in-class enthusiast compact camera.
Google is sending out hardware for Project Ara, which will let you build a personalised phone from a selection of bolt-together elements.
The audio experts at Sennheiser are lending an ear to the Lego-like bolt-together Phonebloks modular mobile phone backed by Google.
Although it sounds like putting a Lomo lens on a D3s, you'll be able to use Leica lenses on a GXR.
The GXR Lens Mount Unit module will accept Leica M-mount lenses, allowing access to a large selection of high-quality Leica M-mount lenses.
In a move that stems from Ricoh's recent buy-out of the company, Pentax will stop producing compact cameras and instead focus on interchangeable lens models.
With some cameras, you think all the photos look just OK, and then get hit with the "wow" when you view them on your computer display. This is not so with the Ricoh GXR+S10 24-72mm module. Many of my shots look great displayed at about 25 percent, which is why I was so disappointed when I zoomed to 100 percent or printed at 13x19. To me, that's one of the important differences between a merely decent enthusiast compact and a standout model.
Because it has to serve a variety of lens/sensor modules, ostensibly with different capabilities, the Ricoh GXR's controls are generically designed and labeled.
Ricoh is showing off a range of modules that turn the GXR modular camera into a printer, projector, and Scuba diving point-and-shoot
Ricoh delivers on its promise of a megazoom module for its GXR system camera. The P10 features a 28-300mm f3.5-5.6 lens (35mm equivalent) plus 10-megapixel backside-illuminated CMOS sensor.
