I bought this camera with the non-kit (15-85mm + prime) lens before going on holiday. The price during the October promotion was 1399$ and I got a great deal on the set.The pictures indoors and outdoors were fantastic and I loved taking videos at the push of a button. Also the LCD is large and gives superb colours, and the touchscreen was a pleasant surpise. I had a canon20D and the upgrade was worth it. The larger LCD screen and video capabilities make it an ideal vacation/home camera for kids and events. My partner has small hands and she found the camera easy to use despite being a bit bulky. The battery life was outstanding, we didn't recharge for days. The staff at TEDS were very helpful and actually said I could use my old 18-200mm canon lens with the new 70D body, but I wanted to give the old set away and purchased a new lenses. I am using this camera for family shots and a bit of outdoor photography, I could have gone for a slightly less expensive camera but I am happy I got something that will last me more than just a few years.
Absolutely fantastic camera! For my first DSLR, this is perfect: great image quality, easy to use and not too small and not too big - perfect for my needs!
Only real photographers know about these Ricohs!
They were cult film cameras a few decades ago and now have a dedicated digital following. The camera has the same size sensor as a crop DSLR yet can fit in a pocket. Great grip unlike most of the competition. Every thing can be customised. I love mine (after selling a Fuji X100 to fund it). Very sharp and excellent for street photography.
I love this camera. It has so many more features than I was expecting and they are all easy to use. Really good value for money and I've been recommending it to everyone.
I always buy cameras that take AA batteries for when I travel as I'm often not in areas that have power points, this camera seems to have incredible battery life.
I originally wanted a simple point & shoot camera for a trip overseas but needed a viewfinder. This camera was bigger and heavier than I really wanted but the pictures I got more than made up for the inconvenience. Out of 1500 photos I deleted about 3 that were blurred but that was me shaking from the cold. Night photos still aren't great, but the hand held night mode does a better job than other cameras I've had in the past and could probably be better if I practised some more. I would definately recommend this camera. It is relatively easy to use and the I am impressed with the picture quality.
Still learning, but have taken a number of shots and I am very happy. Test will come when I travel OS.
Very easy to use and setup, very durable, takes great shots in water, just perfect to carry around to the beach or outdoors when the environment is more harsh and dont have to worry about getting water on the camera or accidentally dropping it on the floor.
Bought the floating wrist band to attach to the camera too, very handy too.
Very happy with the D5200. Having the ability to review or take photos using the flip out screen is great! Would recommend this camera for general use & for first timers too.
Teds Cameras have always looked after us well too. Pity there isn't a store in Rockhampton!
Fabulous small camera to take travelling easy to use and connects by wifi to other devices
I'm pleased with the camera but its had very little use. I shoot captured and process the files with Capture One Pro 7 - or rather I will do when they release the software update to support this body. It was my ignorance not to check the camera was supported before I bought it. In hindsight I ought to have bought the D800E as it has support. My issues are more to do with buying a new spec camera rather than the camera itself. The camera seems fine - after all most modern bodies surpass the users capabilities.
