Today was a saaaad day. My little friend passed away about 2:20pm, he worked so hard and never complained. He was always ready when I needed him and never skipped a beat, I will so miss you.

Although I have a 'Leica M4-P', 'Fujifilm X-Pro 1' I never ever left home without my Ricoh GR3 in my front left pocket, (the picture to the right is a testimony to that).

It along with it's fabulous heritage, is one perfect  piece of camera engineering. Small form factor, razor sharp f/1.9 28mm lens all provided what I feel is a perfect Street Shooter. It simply just cant be beat by any other small digital fixed lens camera on the market (Ricoh GR4 excluded).

So thank you Ricoh, much appreciated,  I really am grateful.

 I look so forward to obtaining the GR4 as soon as I can get the $$$ together, hell I think I might even get a new pair of jeans to imprint as well. Ashes to Ashes ... Dust to Dust.



  1. My commiserations on your sad loss. I still remember when my GRD1 died... I still keep it even though it is silent. My GRD3 still works well, and I will not upgrade until I need to.

    The GRD4 looks like a great advance on the 3 (although slightly thicker in your pocket).

    Keep blogging!

Ricoh has a new patent (2016-201400) field in Japan for a Bayer sensor without a colour filter array (CFA) which should create sharper monochrome images. If dreams could come true a Ricoh GR Monochrome (ala Leica) would be an absolute corker.
We are all holding our breath for the Next incarnation of the Cult Ricoh GR APSC Camera. A 'Ltd Edition Monochrome' camera would be fantastic indeed.  Finger, toes and balls crossed.

Leica Q vs Ricoh GR

Quick comparison between the Leica Q & Ricoh GR .........Posted with Blogsy

VSCO FILM® 07 & Ricoh GR

Nice indeed, I'm really enjoying this pack. There is enough variety here that makes it worth the purchase, especially with the launch discount and stackable loyalty discount if you've purchased any one of their film packs before. Even still, VSCO packs are never cheap, and if you're wanting to get a good idea of the power of these presets and how easy they are to use, the new VSCO Film 00is aFREEstarter pack from VSCO - It has both Kodak Tri-Xand Kodak Gold 100. Back in the day, thats almost all one would need, so give it a crack - it's got more than just two presets, with all the variants you would expect (Kodak Tri-X 400 ++ anyone? :p )

VSCO Film 07 is available from the VSCO website,
