Ricoh GR Digital Camera Review

From Digitalcamerainfo review:

We haven’t yet tested the $1,100 Nikon Coolpix A, but we can’t find anything in its spec sheet that justifies its $300 price premium. Shots from the GR exhibited crisp detail, perfect exposure, and a rich tonality that looked great in color but really shone in black and white. The control scheme is clearly designed for easy one-handed operation, and in that regard it’s a total success. The Ricoh GR may never be a camera for the masses, but it has all the ingredients of a cult classic.

Ricoh GR Camera Price

This is the second APS-C sensored camera in the market after Nikon Coolpix A. Ricoh GR camera priced at $799.95.

    This is an excellent camera. I cannot wait to get my hands on my own after trying a store unit. Master Daido Moriyama made Ricoh famous. Contemporary photographers like Michael Ernest Sweet in New York are carrying on the legend. Look at the work of these guys and others and you will see that this camera is magic, pure magic. So happy they kept the price reasonable too! An added bonus.
