The small size and wide range of controls available with the Ricoh GR-1 film-based point-and-shoot make this camera more appealing than most other point-and-shoot models. Helen K. Garber finds this camera particularly useful in situations where unobtrusiveness is important. She handholds the camera for much of her work and uses shallow breathing to help steady it when shooting at slow shutter speeds.
