Ricoh GR Digital – street photography

I have always wanted to have a Ricoh GR Digital,

but Ricoh is not a well known camera in my country (and perhaps 90% of the countries in the world?),

thus it is not easy for me to get any information about it.

`

On the recent trip to Singapore, I only brought along with me the Sony RX100,

which I always hated the camera body, felt so unlikely a pro camera in the hand.

`

I grabbed a Ricoh GR Digital not long after I arrived in Singapore.

This camera surely has a soul when you hold and take a picture.

The battery could last me a whole day of shooting around Singapore, but still I bought a spare battery just in case.

The colour is really great, much better than the Sony RX100.

The overall image quality is far beneath the Sony RX100, but somehow I still prefer the Ricoh GR Digital.

Sometimes, it is not always about image quality, the feeling when we hold the camera and when we shoot matters too.

`

Here are some of my very first shots using the Ricoh GR Digital II.

The 4th picture was shot with the 21mm wide angle adapter.

More pictures to come, as I am very eager to shoot again with this tiny camera.

Now I take the Ricoh GR Digital with me in my jeans pocket everywhere I go.

Thank you.
