About a year and a half ago, I bought a gem of photographic equipment, but I couldn’t find the time to write a good review about this camera, I am talking about Ricoh GR. Unfortunately, the camera is not being produced anymore, but you can still find a secondhand one. The one you will still find new to buy is the Ricoh GR II. The difference is that the second camera has an integrated WIFI, which helps you control the camera from a mobile device and helps you transfer photos wirelessly from your camera to your device. I would say this is the major novelty, the rest I consider less important or with no big difference, so I hope you will find this review useful in order to know these two cameras and help you choose a compact camera, in case you are looking for one. Firstly, I will show you a photograph taken with Ricoh GR.
This photo was taken more than a month ago in Peru. He is Manuel, a 93 year old photographer who works in Plaza de Armas of Cusco and he spends his time taking photos of people who visit this touristic place.

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

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,
