The Ricoh GRD series of digital compact cameras have always been a little understated in appearance. They are magnificently capable machines - as evinced by their selection for some of the roughest walk-around work out in the bush. They take a beautiful pictures. They are one of the best handfuls for larger fingers. But they are plain.
The surface coating is rough, and has been designed to be so. It wears well and grips like anythng. he lens is micro-sharp. It focusses to crazy close. There is an effects button on the LHS that calls in all sorts of sepia, miniature, toned effects.
It is the sort of camera that you can just pack and use all the time.
In store now.
The model? Plain Jane.
