Ricoh GR, the camera I always come back to By Rikard Landberg

This article appeared originally in full at Steve Huff 's website.

Hi Steve!
I have used film Leicas for some years and I truly loved them. While shooting mostly film I have also tried to find a digital camera, but that was not easy! I bought the Ricoh GR (mark 1) and I loved it, but it broke down on me. I then thought a needed the Leica feeling so I tried the Fuji X100t, and I hated it. Don’t get me wrong, it is a great camera with great image quality and great feeling. But all I could think of while using the X100t was that it was not a Leica!
I sold it and bought the Ricoh GR II.  ........

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,
