My life has been and always will be with GR. Starting with the film camera "GR1s" I purchased in 1998, since the GR DIGITAL released in 2005 up to the latest GR III, more than half of my 40,000 annual shootings have been taken with a GR, which integrates my mind and body in my hand. It photographs everyday scenes such as smiles, sounds, smells, and tastes. It is also great to attache the 21mm wide converter to capture a wider viewing angle. It is extremely reliable when I travel both in Japan and overseas such as Mongolia, Greek, Hong Kong as well as Cambodia, which I have continuously visited for more than 20 years. Even in situations where I can't carry an SLR, I can walk empty-handed freely with my GR attached to the waist belt and shoot instantly with it. Because it's the closest camera to my heart and body, the expressions are connected directly to the five senses, which makes me feel great.
