Hi! Greetings from sunny El Segundo, CA! I have been a long time user of the Ricoh GRDIII and while researching the GRD IV I discovered this site. I am mainly a film shooter but need something to serve as a convenient tool for documenting my family life and the growth of my son (my ultimate project!). The GRD III has been perfect for this task, I look forward to the enhancements of the GRD IV, especially with my son being a fast moving toddler! I have a tendency to not stop photographing my son so it saves me a small fortune in film and years of time in processing! :smile: From the brief time I have been on seriouscompacts I have really enjoyed what I have discovered and it seems like a great community! I'm excited to be a part of it! Cheers, shawn r.
