A Camera Recommendation For You


I have gear lust. (There I’ve said it.)

Rarely a week goes by when I’m not browsing camera reviews and checking up on the latest and greatest digital photographic marvels.

But as we all know, it isn’t the camera that takes a good picture. It’s the person behind the lens and no amount of great gear is going to make one a better photographer if the talent and willingness to work hard isn’t there.

That said, one thing is for sure. If you don’t have a camera with you when the opportunity to take a good picture presents itself, you are dead in the water.

Cell phone cameras are getting better and better. No question about it. (The camera in the new iPhone 5s is one of the best.) Using your cell phone to capture a gorgeous sunset over the mountains is certainly better than nothing but, I submit having a pocketable powerhouse like the Ricoh GR is even better.

Check out the reviews online for this camera. It is the cult darling of street photographers. It takes a whopping 16 megapixel image and has a sharp 28mm fixed lens that is wonderful for landscapes and interiors alike. You can carry it in pocket or purse so it is always there when you need it. Its menu system is intuitive and really easy to use. In short you should seriously consider getting one of these instead of that heavy blunderbuss you will more than likely will leave at home.

In short the Ricoh GR is a piece of camera gear that is worth lusting after.

Bowtie Wearer With Bad Knees I spent my early years in Massachusetts in a little town called Easton. I went to Harvard, served in the Navy as Operations Officer on and LST, founded a construction company and served in the state Legislature as Assistant Minority Leader. However my life really began when I moved to Maine and opened an art gallery. I've been around the fine arts in the commercial art business for over 25 years now and loved (almost) every minute of it. I look at every day is a gift, except when it's very cold outside or I have to go to the dentist.

I'd love to hear from you
