The Ricoh GR II Camera Brings Subtle Upgrades to a Street Photography Machine

It may not have a fancy full-frame sensor like the new $3,800 Leica Q, but the Ricoh GR II has an extremely strong street photography heritage. Now, it also has Wifi and a few more slight upgrades to round out its feature set.

At its core is the same APS-C sensor that came before it, with a 16-megapixel resolution. The lens is the same, too, giving a roughly 28mm field of view with a maximum aperture of F/2.8. They’re not upgrades, sure, but those were both features we really liked about the first, so that’s not necessarily a negative.

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,
