21mm is very fun to shoot!

First things first– 21mm is SO fun to shoot! I’ve shot all the focal lengths (35mm, 28mm, 24mm) — and it seems that 21mm is a new visual frontier.

Bigger and bulkier, but still not too heavy

When you put on the 21mm adapter to the RICOH GR3, it makes the camera a lot bigger, heavier, and bulkier. But still, it is within ‘acceptable bounds’ of heaviness and weight. Still smaller and more compact, cheap, and more fun to shoot the GR3 with the 21mm adapter when compared to a Leica Q2, Leica M10, Fujifilm X100F, or any other camera out there right now.


21mm shooting experience

The experience of shooting 21mm is very fun and interesting. It is a totally new way of seeing and engaging/interacting/capturing the world.

You can put much more into the frame, which is challenging, fun, and interesting! There is a fun dance:

Get very close to your subjects, look up, and create more dramatic and ambitious compositions.

Try it out for yourself

Try out the Ricoh GW-4 Wide Conversion Lens kit + GA-1 Lens Adapter for the Ricoh GR3, and see if you like it.

What I ordered on BHPHOTO was:


ERIC KIM NECK STRAP MARK II x RICOH GR 3

RICOH GR3 x Eric Kim NECK STRAP MARK II
RICOH GR3 x Eric Kim NECK STRAP MARK II

Perfect pair for Ricoh GR 3 (with wide angle lens adapter) is the ERIC KIM NECK STRAP (MARK II). Perfect aesthetics, simplicity, elegance, and balance.
