How do you review a system camera that is not one camera but many or no camera at all? And more important how do you explain the system to other people if even the manufacturer did not do a very good job at explaining it?
These and other reasons (main other one being time) were what kept me from writing my Ricoh GXR review sooner.
Since this is more than a simple camera review I decided to approach it slightly different but without making it any less extensive than my other reviews.
So to start off I tought the best would be to look at what the GXR system is and try to explain it first before moving on to the body and modules.
There will be no comparisons done for the GXR review, instead each unit will stand on it’s own. Don’t worry though, I will post comparisons between the GXR modules and and other cameras but these will be done separate.
So without further ado let’s go to the first part and look at what the GXR system is and at the build and controls.
