What can one say about the R8? It's a good job the name and the red dot are there, otherwise no-one would recognise the uncharacteristically sleek styling. This camera is crammed with everything you could possibly wish for in a manual camera four exposure modes and more ambient and flash metering modes than you can shake a stick at.
