15 Reasons why Ricoh GR is better

than the average

1.Substantially larger sensor
23.7 x 15.6mmvs 14.6 x 10.8mm (the average)
vs 81.2 x 25.4mm (best: Polaroid Snap)
The larger the sensor the more light the sensor captures yielding in better image quality.
215gvs 376g (the average)
vs 65.5g (best: HTC Re)
3.Distinctly higher maximum light sensitivity
25600ISOvs 19130ISO (the average)
vs 3280000ISO (best: Nikon D5)
With a higher light sensitivity (ISO level), the sensor absorbs more light. This can be used to capture moving objects using a fast shutter speed, or to take images in low light without using a flash.
4.Substantially higher pixel density
544ppivs 360ppi (the average)
vs 544ppi (best: Sony A7)
61mmvs 95mm (the average)
vs 26.2mm (best: DxO One)
6.Slightly more battery power
1250mAhvs 1212mAh (the average)
vs 4360mAh (best: Samsung Galaxy NX Mirrorless)
7.Distinctly less body volume
247.65cm³vs 531.12cm³ (the average)
vs 65.29cm³ (best: Sony Cyber-shot DSC-TX55)
34.7mmvs 50.8mm (the average)
vs 13mm (best: Sony Cyber-shot DSC-TX55)
9.Considerably higher resolution
906x1,359pxvs 875x609px (the average)
vs 1,517x1,011px (best: Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH2K + Lumix G Vario 14-42mm/ F3.5-5.6 ASPH./ MEGA O.I.S)
10.Modestly bigger screen size
3"vs 3" (the average)
vs 4.8" (best: Samsung Galaxy Camera (Wi-Fi))
The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
11.Has sensor shift stabilization
Yesvs No (83% don't have it)
With sensor shift, the image sensor (rather than the lens) moves to counterbalance any vibration of the camera. This means the image will be stabilised regardless of what lens is being used.
12.Can be charged via standard USB cable
Yesvs No (81% don't have it)
It can be charged and operated with a standard USB cable connected to your computer, or with a USB power supply.
13.Has manual shutter speed
Yesvs No (56% don't have it)
This allows to manually set the shutter speed.
14.A lot wider aperture at minimum focal length
2.8vs 3.0 (the average)
vs 1 (best: Leica Q (Typ 116))
With a wider aperture the sensor can capture more light, helping to avoid blur by enabling a faster shutter speed. It also provides a shallow depth of field, allowing you to blur the background to focus attention on the subject.
15.Has or is a prime lens
Yesvs No (95% don't have it)
A prime lens has a fixed focal length. In general, these are sharper, with a wider aperture.
