I got my Ricoh gr1s compact 2 years ago and have never been happier since. It is my everyday pocket camera and has all the features of an slr packed into its super slim and slick body. It is practically glued to my hands 24/7. I will always rely on it to deliver awesome shots in all situations and it has never failed me.

The lovely 28mm/f2.8 lens so awesomely sharp and contrasty that any shots coming out of it automatically becomes nice. Its also has bulb mode and aperture control which makes it awesome for night shoots and low light photography.

The only bad point about it is the life span of the lcd screen on the camera. It seems to slowly fade and die after a few years of use. mine has started to become a little faulty and does not display anything at times. But I still love you gr1s. you are the most reliable one. If you ever come across one of these babies for cheap, grab it fast and you’ll definitely love it.

    So great ! And I think the lomographer behind the camera is also responsible for the beauty of the gallery...
