First published on: Tuesday, 10 November 2009

The price of most digital cameras tend to trend downwards over time, and the same price drop should occur in the case of the Ricoh GXR Interchangeable Unit Digital Camera System.

I’m not planning for any scheduled updates, but do check back here from time to time for the latest and best prices on the Ricoh GXR and related accessories.

Ricoh GXR Interchangeable Unit Digital Camera System with 3-Inch High-Resolution LCD: $549.00 (no change since the last update).

Ricoh A12 50mm f/2.5 Macro GR LENS with APS-C 12.3MP CMOS Sensor: $830.00 (no change since the last update).

Typical accessories for the GXR
Ricoh DB-90 Rechargeable Lithium-ion Battery Pack. Get a second, backup battery for your GXR. This way, you can be sure your camera continues to have a power source during extended shooting sessions.

For storage, the GXR uses SD or SDHC cards.

Refer to Rob Galbraith’s SD / SDHC card write speed tests (done on a Nikon D90) to get an idea on the relative write and read speeds of different brands of cards. At the time of writing (Oct 29, 2009), the SanDisk Extreme III SDHC cards occupy the top two spots.

To ensure smooth recording of video and high resolution images, go for Class 6 or faster cards.

Good luck shopping for your Ricoh GXR!
