Ricoh offers a nice level of programmability in its cameras. In addition to the two function buttons, the camera will retain the company's tendency to add new features via firmware updates. The rocker switch on the side operates the manual focus. There's a jog dial, and a hardware switch for toggling the button function between autoexposure lock and continuous autofocus.

In addition to the three user settings slots, you can reprogram almost every control on the camera.
