Ricoh GXR camera

Eventually Ricoh has unveiled its first digital system camera: GRX. This is a quite unusual camera, without shutter and sensor in a camera body . You ask me how?

Ricoh decide to integrated everything into the lens! What the idea! 🙂

Think about this:  you can have several lenses each with a different sensor size, with and without low pass filter, different dynamic range, etc.. Sounds very promising, especially if you have enough money to buy such lenses.

Here is the info from Ricoh:
