In 2000 digital pictures came out. And the evidence, too. Then Nicolas Claris went out to take a few pictures. 

Without groping, without pretension, without hesitation, without fear, without vanity, without a doubt. With talent, with knowledge, with pleasure, with creativity, with seriousness, with jubilation too. Perfectionists amaze me or get on my nerves. With Nicolas Claris, I found out one could eventually like them! On his pictures, one can read a true concentration toward the subject, a real will to embellish it, an unquestionable envy to approach it. The sharpness, the brightness, the balance, all show an immense love. In the originality, in the unexpected, in the points of views, lie a raising pleasure. But the work never shows; that is all the force of his photos, that are never violent, always alive, where from emanates the serenity of those artists who know. He is a perfectionist. But un unpredictable perfectionist makes it all different! Bruno Belmont, Beneteau Group

Review about GR

When I received the Ricoh GR, the first impression was compactness, solidity and ease. Then I started to play with the different menus and discovered that I had in hands a real pro little camera with all settings I could need… For my professional photographic work, I use a Pentax 645D, so I'm used to work with the highest quality files, but I have to admit that the files from the GR are amazing by their quality. Colors, sharpness everything is easily handled in post-production with the in Camera DNGs.

Of course I’ll continue using the 645D, but from now on, I never leave home or office without the GR. I had many compact cameras before but never did that. As I’m assured that in case of a good photograph opportunity, I have the GR in my pocket… discrete and always ready.
