The lens sensitivity of F3.5 and a focal length of 30mm (4 element multi-layer glass lens, 4 groups). To be honest, I don't really like focal lengths longer than 35mm, I don't like elongated shots.
The minimum distance to the object is 0.35m and this is the index for the top point-and-shoot cameras. Macro mode is from 0.2m to 0.35m. Shutter speed range is from 2 to 1/750. Film read out (DX) ISO 50-3200. Standard 10 second self timer. The camera is powered by a single CR123A battery. And the most important technical feature is the weight of 150g without the battery. Super light and super stylish camera!
The shooting modes are standard: "auto", "red-eye", flash "off", flash always "on", landscape with "on and off" flash and also "macro" mode with "on and off" flash. Unfortunately, I didn't test the modes because my sample, like 99.9% of Ricoh-10 cameras, had a non-working LCD display and as a lazy photographer I just pressed the button in "auto" mode. But you know - it doesn't stop you from getting great shots at all. The only disadvantage is that you can't see the frame counter.
I had a Kodak Ektar 100 in my R10 and it's one of the most vivid and impressive films! Like I saw pictures from my parents album. By the way, the film unwinds from the reel at the start, so those who are not experienced don't be intimidated. I shot under the right conditions, with a few exceptions the flash was on, but in the cafe we used it on purpose to get the shots with a vintage feel. The pictures show the same flare (red stripe on the edge), I think there is a small light transmission from the back of the body.
To sum up, the Ricoh R10 is a high end compact with a great lens. Yes, the brand can let the you down with electronics (a non-functional display or quick battery death same as the FF-9), but the results are a pleasure to watch. On my rating scale, the camera will take the "All star" level with a plus sign. Another healthy competitor to the Olympus mju 2.
