Ricoh GR Digital review
Oct 2, 2007

camera with a unique grain/noise. I mostly use it for b/w photography, since it has a very strong red cast when shooting color (after I sent it in for reparation (the lens broke).

The sharpness of the 28m f2.4 lens is good. Noise is visible even at 64iso, but it gives my photographs a specific 'cinematic' look since it's such a filmlike grain. I almost always use manual settings. Aperture and shutterspeed are set easily using the two dials. Because it's such a small and discrete camera its very useful for b/w streetphotography, which is fun.

I bought it secondhand for €200 and did not regret it for a single moment.

Problems:

- Lens is vulnerable and feels a little 'loose'. Have to handle it with care.
- Rubber grip peels of.
- RAW writing time is more than 10 seconds per photo. Way too long for streetphotography.
