      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Very good value for money. Well built body.

      The RX replaces the G4 series in early 2004, sporting a 3.6X optical zoom, slightly better than most 3X opticals in the market. The body is now slimmer than the G4 series. Most notable difference is the Power button relocated to the back of the camera. This makes it easier to locate. However, if you use the soft pouch supplied by Ricoh and place it in your pocket, there is high chance the Power button can get depressed when you squat down. The lens extends out in the pouch whie still in your pocket. The solution: I always set the Mode Dial to PLAYBACK before sliding it to the pouch. Close-up pictures are very good. IClose-up lover will appreciate the Close-Up AF Target Selection Function, where you can shift the focusing pointer off-center. Noise level has also improved over the G4s. Other functions retained from the G4 are the Voice Recording & Lithium-Ion/AA battery capability. One more on the minus side, sometimes, one half of the lens cover fails to close when power off. I have seen my friend's camera with the same problem.
