Ricoh GR Digital Night Shooting


Ricoh GR

Writing this at 11,600' elevation high in the mountains, with a cell signal.

The Ricoh GR is the first camera that makes a common operation easy: one can choose 30/60/120/240/300 second exposures without a fiddly bulb mode and remote.

Why other brands can’t do something similar has long been a sort of frustration in the field. Even now I cannot figure out how to get the Leica M Typ 240 to go beyond 60 seconds (I forgot to take the damned cable release needed to lock open in bulb mode—it’s insane to have a digital camera which cannot be set to a chosen shutter speed for long exposures).

There is a lot I like about the Ricoh GR, and a few things that are quite frustrating— like no filter threads for using a polarizer. And some others, all of which I will detail in my review upon return from my trip, along with examples.

Ricoh GR is available at B&H Photo for about $800.
