So I received this beauty from my supervisor at work, because I am a lovely colleague.
I first got introduced the ricohgr1 series from looking at @606.mov
's photos. And my GAS (gear acquisition syndrome) kicked in and immediately wanted to get myself one.
This is one of the most pocketable compact camera at f2.8
In this album I avoided using the built-in flash because of the big glass.
I was really curious of how it would perform in low light situations so I took this camera to the streets of Shum Shiu Po the first night, the following day I took it to a live house. You can see some of the shots missed my intended focus.
But the great thing about this camera is how it feels on your hand and how discrete it is. There is not pressure to make everyshot a masterpiece when shooting with this.
