Why the GRII:
I first fell in love with Ricoh when the GXR debuted because of a long term relationship with Leica and more specifically Leica lenses. I am on a constant search for the perfect side arm- a camera that fits into my pocket but has the ability to create professional grade images. Because a huge part of my client base is in the travel industry I could encounter a moment worthy of my portfolio at any time.
I have worked with GRI and GRII and in particular love theses cameras for their dynamic range and color profiles. I'm also a fan of a fixed focal length for compact cameras because I believe it simplifies the shooting process. I find the GRII in particular renders skin tones famously and the files can stand up to heavy color correction without falling the pieces. The on camera flash creates a lot of versatility as well and lastly, I think the camera is beautiful.
