Is it a Leica, a Nikon F… no! I didn’t get my expectations too high and I was not disappointed, at least size-wise. In the parcel, I found a… … ok, I take a deep breath to say the full name: Ricoh Shotmaster Tru-Zoom Date
Since this morning, I’m the proud owner of a Ricoh GR1. I’ve really longed to try this camera out, so I thought I would try to give a day by day report or review of my early experiences with it, and how it compares to my current carry everywhere Olympus XA2
I wondered if it was possible to use the gorgeous viewfinder of this humble lump of plastic on a real camera such as the LEICA IIIa which has a definitely crappy viewfinder – at least if you wear glasses like me.
