    I wanted to try the GR out for some more nightwork so went to a place where I knew the lighting would be challenging.

    I set the camera to 100ISO in Aperture priority between f4 - f5 and used the 2 sec delay, I found suitable items to rest the camera on and manged to get these images that I am very pleased with.

    Sometimes there's no substitute for a larger sensor and a sharp lens.

    Thanks Louis and Steve,

    The GR is a stunning camera and great value for money, it is like its older brothers proving popular with pro street shooters as it is so small, inconspicuous and delivers amazing images.

    Love it!

    when I had my GR (sob, boo hoo....I miss you darlin') I used to take it out for night work. It did far better than I expected and sometimes better than the full frame.

    Thanks Pete,

    You do have my sympathy and as your images show, Ricoh are masters of the small compact / high performance genre.

    The GR is a worthy replacement to the smaller sensor versions and yet still retains and even improves on all things good - a worthy replacement!
