Ricoh GR Street Photography Cameras, not just for the street. Landscape, macro, portrait and more, it is a pocket sized imaging powerhouse.
There is a Ricoh line of digital cameras that has consistantly been used for Street Photography, the GR Series, which are a small fixed lens compact camera system that excel at fast and discreet shooting. The newest of these are the GR III & GR III x both having features that would satisfy the most discriminating Street Photographer. Or anyone wanting a 24.24 megapixel, quality, full function, pocket sized camera.
There are several other brand models noted to be excellent for Street Photography, but they are not compact fixed lens cameras. There are only two other brand models that can be considered compact fixed lens SP cameras. The Fujifilm X100V at $1399 and the Leica Q2 at $5495.
I propose the GR III at $896 & GR III x soon to be released at $999.95 are far superior. I submit the following for review and consideration.
