I’m interested in using my Ricoh GR for some portraiture, particularly comic con. It’s light and has a 28mm equiv FL which should make for some interesting distortion!
I found out I can use my Canon 600EX-RT on it, albeit in manual. My ST-E3-RT won’t work but I’ve ordered the YN-E3-RT which is a 3rd party version of the same controller, which will still work on non-canon cameras!
The plan is to easily hold the Ricoh in my right hand and the flash in the left, and be able to get REALLY close. Having made this discovery I am eager to try it out, unfortunately my wife is out, so it’s a self portrait.
