Ricoh GR Digital II

Friends expressed surprise when I paid so much for a camera like the Ricoh GR Digital II.

“You could get a good DSLR with this kind of money,” they said.

But the Ricoh GR Digital II is another iconic camera I wanted to add to my collection.

It packs a 10 megapixel CCD, a fast 28mm f2.4 lens, manual controls, support for the RAW image format, and a 2.7″ LCD display. Two unique features include a 1:1 ratio mode (which simulates medium format cameras), and a “leveling meter” which helps prevent crooked photos. The GR II is expandable as well, offering conversion lenses, optical viewfinders, and a remote shutter release cable.

The GR series of cameras date back to the mid-1990s, back when people still used film. The GR cameras were well-known for their slender bodies and high quality wide-angle lenses. The GR jumped into the digital age with the introduction of the GR Digital

The camera comes with 54MB of onboard memory.
