Excerpt: This is an amazing camera--especially for street photography. Light and small yet packs a C-MOS sensor (same as in the Nikon d700 now gathering dust in my closet. I can get right up close, totally silent, shoot and be gone in a flash. It can be set for 28, 35 or 40 mm lens and you can preset the focus for faster shooting without auto focus. Nice sharp images that will amaze you.
Excerpt: My first Ricoh product. Very well made and designed for such a small camera. Was gonna use it for everyday carry. Unfortunately after learning that it can collect dust if put in pocket, I had to buy the shade and filter kit. Which made it not pocketable anymore. So now I am carrying the Lumix LF1 instead, a very good P&S, but with a smaller sensor.
Excerpt: I typically tote around a Nikon pro or semi-pro, and right now (after ~1 week of use), my favorite thing about this Ricoh GR is that it is TINY in comparison. I LOVE that it fits in my pocket, and that it is inconspicuous (on the street, in a museum, when dining out, etc.). I also really like it's capacity to take clear photos in low light, without too much color distortion. Things I need to use more before having more of an opinion: 1.
Pros: Easy to Use, Good in Low Light, Small / Compact
Excerpt: After reading lots of reviews and articles and analyzing the latest work I've been doing I realized 28mm is one of the focal lenghts I use the most when I'm out in the street shooting.I currently own a 5dmkIII which is great for almost all the work i do, which mainly involves video. The thing about it is it's size, is just too big to be carried all around all the time, the GR is just perfect.It is small, well built, easy to use, and discreet.
Pros: Easy to Use, Great Resolution, Small / Compact
Excerpt: Good: Small, customizable, one handed-shooting, amazing IQ, DNG files, strap lug at all four corners, bright screen, comfortable to hold.Bad: No external charger included, could use some more customization options (can never have enough), menus/customization options can be difficult to decipher at times as manual isn't totally comprehensive, moving lens mechanism can lead to dust on sensor, wish it had a built-in optical finder.Overall: I'm pleased and glad to see many...
Pros: Good in Low Light, Great Resolution, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
Excerpt: I gave this camera 4 stars instead of 5 just because I prefer the options of a zoom and don't shoot a lot of landscapes. But other than the focal length, which I was aware of when I bought it, I can't find any faults with the Ricoh. Things I like: Solid, well made, great natural colors, fits in purse or pocket, easy to use. Things I don't like: Nothing really except the fixed focal length and wish the lens was a bit brighter.
Pros: Easy to Use, Good in Low Light, Great Resolution, Small / Compact
Excerpt: I am a professional and it took me 5 years before i decided to buy a point and shoot digital camera. This camera is good, great file quality both in JPEG and RAW. only slight issues is the focus system at night. A bit of a hit an miss and you cannot rely on it. Other than that very good for outdoors and interior pics.
Pros: Easy to Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Great Resolution, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
Excerpt: I use the camera for street photography. This camera is nearly perfect for street photography as it's small, silent, and still has manual controls. It also has a function called snap focus, which allows you to press the shutter rapidly and it focuses on a preset length immediately. Fantastic feature! Great camera!
Pros: Easy to Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Great Resolution, Large Clear LCD, Small
Cons: Limited Zoom, No Viewfinder, Poor in Low Light
Excerpt: This camera is almost perfect. The autofocus is quite fast, the image quality is amazing for such a tiny camera. It can fit in any pocket, even with the viewfinder on. High iso quality is also very good (up to 3200). The battery life is a plus too. The only problem is the distortion from the very wide lens and the rediculously high price on the viewfinder.
