Ricoh GR II APS-C Compact Camera LOWEST EVER crazy price £319 @ Amazon

Refreshed 19th Nov 2018 (Posted 19th Nov 2018)Edited by:"FactProvider"
Looks like Amazon are having another camera promotion problem, giving an extra £100 discount off a Deal of the Day, making it £319. This camera is usually £550+ everywhere. They are selling for more than this second hand on eBay.

This is £460 (after using £100 discount) everywhere else i.e. Park, WEX, Jessops.

If you are after this camera you won't get it cheaper than this.

NOTE: £319 only shows when you get to the Checkout page.

@locktheworldout - "I’ve been a happy owner of the GR1 for a few years and it’s a stunner. In comparison to the RX 100’s, it’s much worse in terms of video (which doesn’t bother me), and fancy effects, but in my opinion the PQ is hugely superior. Shits easily blow up to poster size and if you’re a sharpness freak like me then there’s no better pocket friendly option out there.

I’ve used it for street stuff, weddings, landscapes, macros etc and it never disappoints. It’s not a great portrait camera due to the focal length but in nearly all other ways it’s fantastic.

Lack of zoom may concern some, but with this level of sharpness it leaves a better cropped end result than the 1” sensor zoomed uncropped shots I compared with from the Canon G7X or RX100M2 that I owned.

My only 2 criticisms are no image stabilisation and you need to be careful not to get muck on the sensor.

Controls are great too, and the RAW files are nice to work on in Lightroom or equivalent.

For this price it’s a no-brainer"

If only I didn't have seven cameras I don't use already, I would get this. I mean you COULD buy one and sell it on eBay for £450, if you were into that sort of thing....
Missed it last year! Was so gutted! Bought just now. Had prev model, brilliant little thing. Thought about watching deal and hey presto, here it is! Thank you!

Let's hope they honour it, they might be making a loss at that price.
Bought! heat added, it doesn't show as £319 until you actually go through the checkout, I wanted a good small camera this looks really good.
Thanks OP would have missed this as shows as £419 on hot deal
Been waiting for this little beaut to be on offer

@HerriceFrancais I'm after another little point and shoot, this might fit the bill! How do you think it compares to the Sony RX-100 range?

Nice find here @HedgyHoggy and good to see you!

Hi JB, thank you for the love-eyes, but can I just ask...you aren't the woman who's been calling me after midnight and breathing like an asthmatic warthog down the phone, right?

Because, if you are, I have to say I'm only interested in Deals after dark. I'm far too busy for such shenanigans.

As for comparing this to the Sony RX, this has a much bigger sensor, much better lens, it's basically a compact system camera with a prime lens on it. This is an enthusiast camera, you get no zoom, no fancy video or Sony friendliness BUT you get the best images of any compact ever made. Apart from the new Ricoh GR III. Using this will make you into a better photographer.

Even if you don't like it you can use it for 11 months then sell it for a profit on eBay with warranty left. Free camera for a year.

Also, best theme tune ever:

Thanks guys. Was thinking about this but the no zoom is a show stopper for me. Anyone got any recommendations for a camera which does good video and good in low light and has zoom

No compact camera can do all those things. The Sony RX is the best but compared to an APS-C it's low light isn't good.

Do you mean what was the problem, or what was the previous camera promotion?

If it's the latter, remember the first rule of HUKD: once you get a bargain for yourself, don't talk about price glitches.
Edited by: "FactProvider" 19th Nov 2018
I just bought the Pentax and am now looking at selling my Canon 60D. I guess I will also sell the Canon prime lens I also bought after seeing the deal on here. What is this HUKD doing to me - I'm like a bag of nerves.

Looks like it has gone now at that price,probably sold out. Glad I ordered early
Comedy moderation above .

Anyway, HUKD have taken over the top camera sales on Amazon:

amazon.co.uk/Bes…834

An excellent nights work.
Seems to be gone - can only buy used, now. :\

I was talking about the Pentax K-70 with £200 off.
Here are some photos without flash from a wedding reception, might not be to everyone’s liking but they were taken in full stealth mode, and everyone else’s photos had that awful bleached flash look.

Does anyone know where to get the hood and adapter at a half decent price, £50 seems steep
