|Self-portrait with the Ricoh GRD V in Detroit|
Disclaimer aside, I think this is currently hands-down the best bang-for-the-buck digital camera for street photography currently out there right now (will release soon for $850 AUS). I love the compact size, the superb image quality and high-ISO performance, as well as the ergonomics and handling. It has been travelling with me alongside my Leica MP as a second shooter — and the camera seriously kicks ass.
While I still prefer shooting with film at the end of the day, it is an amazing camera and I highly recommend it to all street photographers who want a smaller alternative. Keep reading for more of my thoughts on the camera.
Also note I don’t really care for spec sheets and technical aspects, so I will keep this review as practical as possible for actual usage on the streets.
