We had the first London Ricoh Meet-up today. It was very nice to meet people you only talk to in forums and have a chat. We talked about cameras, printers but mainly about photography and pictures, something that comes quite short in most forums. It was very interesting since we had a wide range of Ricoh cameras. We had the GR1, GX8, GRD I, GX100, GRD II and GX200 but also the Sony R1 and Epson RD1s. It was good to get some hands on with these cameras.
The best bit was then going for a walk in the British museum just before closing time. This was the first time I did this and a great experience. While most exhibitions are closed, the main hall is almost empty. The light was great and we were walking around takig pictures, each with his own cameras of choice. Next time we will have to swap cameras and see how we get along :).
Afterwards we went for dinner and had a look at each other's pictures. This was very interesting to see the differences but also similarities in the pictures taken. The great thing about walking around with people and taking pictures of a place is that you get to see things from a different prespective but also the similarities between some pictures.
Unfortunatelly I forgot to take a picture of the table with all the cameras so will have to remember for next time. Here are two of the pictures I took in the museum, more can be found on Flickr.
