Which is the best large-sensor pocket camera on the market? Mike takes another look at the usual suspects....

Mike was invited to the Royal Wedding today — only he had to stay 20 miles away because Windsor was too crowded. He took the versatile Ricoh GR in his pocket to record the occasion…..

Living museums have become increasingly popular, nowhere more so than in the UK where “attractions” are seemingly around every bend in the road. I’ve enjoyed a number of these celebrations of, mostly, early 20th century life including Beamish in Northumberland and the sadly now defunct Wigan Pier museum. This last weekend I ticked another rather enticing museums off my wishlist, this time the Black Country Living Museum at Dudley in the heart of the Black Country. The area was at the forefront of the industrial revolution and gained its name from the pollution and generally dreary landscape that resulted from the mining and other works.
Could the new Fuji XF10 be the Ricoh GR replacement we’ve been waiting for? Whatever, it is certain to see more TLC from Fuji than Ricoh has given to the GR.
