Versatile bridge camera launched by Ricoh
It's a great camera but its comparatively low pixel count and high price mean it's unlikely to have wide appeal amongst enthusiast photographers. However, it will find favour with those who need to be able to shoot in near-dark conditions or want lots of control over video.
The Monochrom is an awkward beast to handle and essentially it offers little in the way of flexibility. However, the images it produces are extremely good, and even the noise is attractive, but the tonal characteristics are dark and moody.
Pricey, but if you need a camera that's built and equipped for life well off the beaten track, the Olympus TG-3 is worth the money.
