I've owned a Ricoh RDC7 for a number of years, and found it to be one of the most advanced digital cameras of it's time, superior quality design and pin sharp photographs. It's only downfall I found with mine was quite a short battery life when using the backlit screen to preview your photos. It's compact design was both aesthetically pleasing and easy to use. I was not however made aware that in high resolution 'Pro' mode it could happily eat a 512Mb SSD card in a couple of shots! I... (read more)

The rotating screen on the Ricoh RDC7 digital camera is such a brilliant feature that it is a surprise others haven't followed suit. The controls are easy to use and even having two shutter buttons adds to the ease of use rather than being a gimmick. As an automatic camera it has enough controls to enable it to be of use in almost any conditions. It's possibly one of my very best buys. (read more)

I have owned a Ricoh RDC-7 digital camera for approx a year, Which in that time have found absolutely nothing to moan about!
The picture quality is second to none, I can't fault it's performance in any way. Some seem to gripe about the video (.avi) formatting, yet is somewhat superior in playback functionality when using this format. So I believe!
Great having both serial and USB uploading capability.
In Short:- If you're considering buying an RDC-7, Go on! (read more)

Some people complain about avi format for video, but this is a far better format than windows media player, the software bundle includes quicktime for avi, so there is nothing to complain about. The software is excellent and the camera is a dream...go on, buy one. (read more)

I was led to buy the Ricoh rdc-7 primarily because it was a neat looking 3 megapixel camera that had fallen in price quite dramatically recently. Not the best of reasons, but I have been very impressed by what I got. Setting the white balance stops the flash, which forces 'slow shutter' and without the tripod gives for fuzzy pictures (then again, if you've got more stable hands than me you should be fine). Overall, a great digital camera for someone who doesn't require shutter or aperture... (read more)

I have now had the Ricoh RD7 for 6 months and (apart from the AVI problem) it is near impossible to fault, Having two sources of memory (Internal & Card) is great. Viewfinder and screen, ditto. The camera takes good pictures in a range of challenging conditions. The Kids have used it, and it still works. People also like its looks. (read more)

I bought the Ricoh RDC7 digital camera for my research project to take close-up pictures from small samples (using 1 cm macro facility) and it does the job very well. (read more)

In my view, the best digital camera for the money. All the family have used it with great success. As with all digital cameras you need a good printer and glossy paper. I use an Epson 880.
It is also well designed and slips into your pocket very nicely, not like most digital cameras that need a special carry case. (read more)

Quite simply the Ricoh RDC7 is an excellent buy at just over £400 - it was more than double this price last year and it's replacement the Ricoh i500 doesn't get as good a review in the press. (read more)

prior to this digital camera I was rather afraid of photography. But now it has so many easy to use features that I can click away merrily. Am now taking really good photos, portrait, views, general snaps, and video. I can't praise it enough.
And the document feature is so handy. (read more)

I have only had the Ricoh RDC7 digital camera for 1 month, but I have used it a lot in this time and I have used most of the modes. It fits into your pocket easily and is quick to turn on and shoot. (read more)

Coming to digital photography for the first time, the Ricoh RDC7 was a great choice. Easy to use and reliable photographs every time.
Colour is great as I like to do flower photography, its very true and there is lots of detail even when not in macro mode. (read more)

Easy to use with viewfinder (saving batteries) or at waist height with unique adjustable screen.
Excellent A4 pictures via a Canon 8200 photo printer, good assortment of features if you need them, but if not just point and click.
Does everything the brochure says and all features worked as they should.
Bought because I wanted good quality digital pictures that I could print myself. (read more)
