Ricoh's GXR digital camera takes interchangeable lenses to a whole new level

Forget changing lenses, the GXR lets you change entire sensor modules!

The flagship 'unit' for the Ricoh GXR is a 50mm (35mm equivalent) lens known as the GR LENS. This is the APS-C-sized lens, which has a 12-megapixel CMOS sensor built into it with a crop factor of 1.5. It will cost around $1100 plus GST. This is a prime lens with a maximum aperture of f/2.5 that is capable if capturing images with a wonderfully shallow depth of field. It has a floating lens structure that allows it to also be used for macro photography and Ricoh claims a low level of vignetting in macro and normal shooting modes. It has a manual focus ring.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
