Ricoh GX100 wins prestigous iF Gold award at CeBIT 2008 in Hannover

Fans of the Ricoh GX100 digital camera and notable RAWsumer celebrate! The GX100 has won the iF Gold award in product design at the 2008 CeBiT in Hannover, Germany.

Ricoh Europe celeberates this with a press release.

We are anxiously awaiting to see what Ricoh has in the works to follow-up on the GX100! In our opinion, we would like to see two parallel models, one more "affordable" in the sub-$5oo price range, and one more advanced model! But we'll be happy with anything, considering that of the 100 new digital cameras in 2008, only four non-DSLRs have RAW support :(

The other good news is that GX100 prices are falling in the US market, and now are more "approachable" and competitive to the Canon G9. The GX100 without the external viewfinder goes for $440 at Adorama. The kit with the external viewfinder included goes for $540 at Adorama. There is also another kit that includes the external viewfinder, an HA2 hood, an extra battery and free case for $570, also from Adorama. Free shipping is included at the moment.
