Review of Ricoh GR (I) for Travel Photography
8

Before the pandemic, I went on an extended "round the world" trip for over a year and brought only the Ricoh GR.

I made a video in which I share some of my favorite pictures and discuss the strengths and weaknesses of the camera:

Summary: the superb ergonomics already make it one of my favorite cameras to use, and the sharp lens (even wide open) seals the deal - the Ricoh GR delivers keepers like nothing else. It would have been nice to have about 2-3 stops of extra latitude to work with (e.g. 2 stops of stabilization). Also, 16 megapixels was plenty in 99% of situations but there were a couple of times I wanted a bit more for printing.
