I teach in a secondary school and do a lot of the AV requests such as preparing a promotional video in three days as lockdown levels prevents us having parents coming in. I may get called in to film sports events at minimal notice. In these situations you grab the fastest tool you can fire up in a hurry. Many of my videos are shot on ipads, phones as well as 4k cameras on tripods. If there is no time to set up then a phone is nearly as good as a camcorder or dslr, but better because it is on me. Many times a phone was the only camera to shoot with and in these situations anything is better than missing out. Students will also relish the features to produce better media. I teach in a poor rural school that even GPS devices seem to struggle with locating. We record pig hunting, fishing events, cultural groups with whatever we can. After years of using Android I plan to buy an iPhone 13 when available here.

On article Ricoh GR III sample gallery (197 comments in total)

Regardless of how good the images are I won't buy another ricoh. It was the only camera I have owned that died for no reason at all. It lived in a lowepro case in a dehumidified room and with just a few thousand total shots inexplicably died. I replaced with a Nikon 1 J5 twin lens plus prime and a Sigma DP2Q and both came to less than my Ricoh owed me. I am not the only one to experience that issue sadly.
