This is a my second Ricoh digital camera. (Still have my RDC7) and it is great. Easy to pocket, excellent capability. I have had very good results from this camera. It is as quick as any digicam of the 2000/2001 era and once you have mastered the pre-focus it rarely misses.
I now have a RDC 7, i500, GR1V and Myport330.
These cameras are 1st class.
Well done Ricoh. (read more)

There are so many options to customise how you wish to use the camera, it must cater for almost everyone's needs.
The thumbnail review is excellent, especially if you have been using the auto-bracket or multi shot modes, good for comparison of many photos and it helps to manage your shots.
