Ricoh GR Digital IV review


Price as reviewed:


White balance and colour

There is a wealth of different colour settings in the GR Digital IV, each with its own customisation options, plus two custom settings. Among my favourite settings are the high-contrast black & white mode and the bleach bypass mode, both of which are great for producing striking images straight from the camera.

On the whole, the camera handles colours well, and the various white balance settings are effective. As with the other modes, it is worth spending some time fine-tuning each of the colour settings to your own particular taste to get the most from the camera.
