Ricoh GRD 4 Street Photograph Samples

IPA Craft & Tools, Reviews 10 Comments

The only little itch sometimes is that it is an LCD camera, which makes shooting in very sunny street photography weather an issue. How can we improve on this? Ahem, add an external viewfinder like this! PowerShot S100 + Voitglander 35mm viewfinder PowerShot S100 + Ricoh GV2 28mm viewfinder Now if some entrepreneurial person makes a little stick-on cold shoe attachment of some sort, like the S95 grip…
