Ricoh GR1s is a high end 35mm film autofocus compact camera introduced in 1997 by Ricoh, noteable for its excellent 28mm lens quality. The GR1s is an evolution of the Ricoh GR1 released in 1996. It introduced an illuminated LCD display, two additional coatings on the lens elements and the ability to attach Ricoh filters. The GR1s is virtually indentical in all other aspects.

Its slim profile and light weight diecast magnesium chassis make it an ideal traveller, although it was called a pocket sized camera, you would most probably fit it inside a trench coat pocket than your average shirt pocket. The GR1s came supplied with a lens hood, case and wrist strap.
