Last Thursday the Miami Heat went ahead to win double back NBA Championships and I was hired to shoot an event at one of Miami’s most exclusive night clubs ― the majestic FIFTY Ultra Lounge Miami at Viceroy. Like any other job, I went ready with all the guns ready to shoot. A Ricoh GR, a Pentax K5 IIs, and a Nikon dslr/zoom & SB 910 combo. The shots below are all the from the best compact in the world bar none ― the Ricoh GR. Once I reiterate, stop stereotyping the GR as a street photography compact, its not, its an all around camera that can do it all and I hope its evident from the images that grace this blog. Long live the GR! Stay tuned for this weekend, as I’ll be sharing 42 images that I think capture the spirit of this crazy night, but wait, here’s a teaser ― I added a new app to my workflow that will blow your sucks off, watch out True Grain because this is one heavy hitting app and I think you guys will agree and love its versatility ― I’m totally in love with it, is it true love, wait and see. Cheers.

Is it weird that I was really into the Ricoh GR and lost all interest once I found out that it is not made in Japan? ; (
No, not at the Ricoh GR is an amazing tool. You won’t regret it, trust me on this.
Nice set, and looking forward to hearing about your new workflow.
Just like anything else people are overly concerned thinking they *have to* categorize everything. Had to laugh at a recent thread at dpreview regarding “stereotyped use”. Goes without saying the *person* behind the camera that determines *how* the camera is used, and more importantly, the quality of the photos – whether it’s the GR or any other camera. You prove that well. 🙂
Thanks, I appreciate it that . Yes, those folks at DPReview are quite humorous – street this or street that, can’t we all just get along. The GR is a little jewel and can wear lots of hats.
a versatile little gem Jorge – the DOF on frame #3 is killer !
Thanks Pat! I love the GR.
