It helps me keep adding to this site when you use these links to Adorama, Amazon, B&H, Calumet, Ritz, J&R and eBay to get your goodies. Thanks! Ken.

Ritz Camera

I personally buy from Adorama, Amazon, Ritz, B&H, Calumet and J&R. I can't vouch for ads below.

 

The Epson R-D1x is a rangefinder (non-SLR) digital camera with a small 6MP DX sensor and a 2.5" LCD. It uses Leica mount lenses.

You have to peer through a separate internal viewfinder to compose and focus, just like a disposable camera. You can't see through the lens. Focus is manual only.

Who cares? It's still only a 6MP DX sensor. I'd rather shoot a real camera like the Nikon D40.

If I'm going to screw with rangefinder cameras, it had better be full-frame.

There's no joy in holding Cosina-style bodies, but there is pleasure in holding a real Leica M, even the earliest M3, which is full-frame.

Note the total "who cares" model number: D1X. Whoo hoo!

Luckily for us, this camera isn't likely to be introduced outside of Japan.

PLUG

I support my growing family through this little website.

If you find this as helpful as a book you might have had to buy or a workshop you may have had to take, feel free to help me continue helping everyone.

If you've gotten your gear through one of my links or helped otherwise, you're family. It's great people like you who allow me to keep adding to this site full-time. Thanks!

If you haven't helped yet, please do, and consider helping me with a gift of $5.00.

The biggest help is to use these links to Adorama, Amazon, B&H, Calumet, Ritz and J&R when you get your goodies. It costs you nothing and is a huge help. These places have the best prices and service, which is why I've used them since before this website existed. I recommend them all personally.

Thanks for reading!

Ken
