I Like the Ricoh GR II Camera

I was waiting to get my car inspected this morning when I only had my Ricoh GR II to play with, so I made this picture through my open window.  As I have written in earlier posts, I have been exploring different uses of the little fixed effective 28mm lens camera.  I am intrigued about what I might be able to do with it.  As it turns out the sensor and lens in the camera are very good.  The above picture was a jpeg … not a raw file.  The smaller vertical image is a crop of the wider image.

I recently acquired a Ricoh GR II camera and since I needed to go to Gettysburg to get a new driver’s license, I took it along and made a variety of test images.  These were all standard color jpegs and I changed some of them to B&W using LR CC after I returned home.

The bottom-line is that I like the camera.  It is small and easy to carry and has excellent image qualities.  It would make a good travel camera to record your memories.  Now, I need to see how I might use the effective 28mm lens.
