Royal Wedding: Time for snapshots with the little Ricoh GR
When I was invited to a Harry & Meghan party by friends and neighbours I thought I'd better take a few snaps for the record — and for the website. I don't usually do this sort of stuff but after a few glasses of wedding champagne, a droplet of wine and an espresso martini (no, I hadn't heard of that before but it was great, thank you, Simon) I pulled out the ever ready Ricoh GR. We've all been in this position, the wedding, the group shot. You know.
This is the only camera I own (other than an iPhone X) that I can actually fit in a pocket and have available at all times. But it does an excellent job, as usual. Despite the tiny dimensions, the GR packs an APS-C sensor and produces results that always please. While this is only a teensy weensy photo, the definition is good enough to blow up to A1 size without a problem.
Today was special and great fun, even though we were 20 miles from Windsor where all the action was taking place. I imagine this is typical of the many such parties that have taken place all over Britain this weekend.
The good thing about the Ricoh GR is that it is a camera that is always there. I slip it into my pocket when I don't really want to carry a camera but, equally, don't wish to rely on my smartphone camera.
