The Ricoh RDC-6000 was purchased at the beginning of an important holiday. I subsequently spent all my time trying to get a halfway decent photo out of it. It is a supremely annoying camera, a product Ricoh must be truly ashamed of, and one which has put me off Ricoh products for life.
It takes a long time to start up, resulting in many potentially good photo opportunities being lost. Then the camera shuts off very soon afterward (the maximum 3-minute shut-off setting is much less in... (read more)

Overall, the camera is great for beginners and intermediates alike.

I bought this Ricoh RDC6000 digital camera about a year ago for £275. I am very disappointed that it is so difficult to get a picture in focus. Although the auto-focus should fix on subjects at the centre of the picture, it almost always fails and the subject is out of focus.
If you want the highest quality images, then expect to wait a considerable number of seconds between pitcures, while the camera processes the image. Don't even think about multiple shots of the same scene, unless... (read more)

The Ricoh RDC-6000 was my first digital camera and it is a great beginners camera. Most images are awesome but there are some problems with blurring at times. The zoom SUCKS. The card errors drive me crazy and I have lost a lot of special pics. I will give my 7 & 11 yr. old this cam and I will go buy me a Fuji next! (read more)

I owned this product for about 18 hours. In this time I found out that it was about the worst choice I could have made. It sucks the big one. The software DID NOT WORK. I had to download new drivers, the res did not match up to a 3 year old kodak 1mp cam. DON'T BUY ONE OF THESE. At any cost it is to much! There are lots of other things wrong with it, but I'm sick of typing. (read more)

good digital camera which is let down by the lcd screen which is totally black indoors also feels very fragile in your hands but otherwise ok. I would not buy a ricoh digital camera again. (read more)

seems to be an on-going problem with card errors and if like me you cherish your photo's then i would think hard before purchasing this digital camera, other than that i have no other bad points except the speed that it operates at but that goes back to the saying "you get what you paid for" but to lose all your cherished holiday photo's is totally unacceptable.

This is my first digital camera. The ease of use and quality of the pictures is excellent.The picture were almost as good as my friends 3.34 Megapixel Sony camera.
I was however disappointed with the picture quality using the digital zoom.
Access to the Smartmedia card is very tricky because of the feeble door and catch.
The LCD screen is very dark when used indoors. I have had a few pictures that have not taken properly when you take pictures over a short period of time.
Overall excellent... (read more)

The quality of photographs is generally very good but the speed of actual use can sometimes be frustrating as it takes a second or two for the shutter to operate. Good battery life if LCD screen is not used. Web facility is excellent but the camera setup needs a bit of tweaking to get best performance.
Power saving features mean camera shuts down so instant photos cannot always be taken.
This is an excellent camera and despite any criticisms I may have laid at it, they are general to this... (read more)

For the large number of features, modes of operation and accessories provided including a good software package this digital camera package is excellent value for money.
Apart from its slowness of operation all the other problems mentioned above can be easily worked around and generally the final images are well exposed and very good quality.
The problem of digital noise in dark parts of the picture can be easily removed using 'despeckle'in Photoshop/Photodeluxe or equivalent filter in... (read more)
