I still would have a SD1/2 or 3 first, but this would be my second choice.

If anyone is struggling to find a GR in stock should check out wilkinsons as they have stock and comes with a free ricoh case

That’s a bit of a stretch to call the raws noise nearly noise free at ISO 1600—there’s plenty of noise in the shadows. Still useable, but ISO 6400 would be about it.

There’s also the typical Sony sensor high ISO banding (cyan in this case).

It’s a plenty promising camera and v2 could be much more interesting.

DNGs extracted with ACR 8.1—in PhotoShop CS6.

I have had my Ricoh GR for about a month now and I am really happy with it. It produces superb images and is really portable. It’s exactly what I was looking for.

Also I’ve seen that on many reviews the video on this camera is said to be sub-standard and a bit of an after thought. Whilst it definitely isn’t perfect you can still get some great results.

Here’s a film I made using the GR:

one question for site runners:

why is there not enough low light samples with iso 800-1600, which is the most important iso check, if u know what i mean.

beside that, i really really like this site. good reviews and organisation

iso question is same for any other camera
