Stussy x Ricoh GRDIII 30th Anniversary Digital Camera
Let the collaborative floodgates open in anticipation of Stussy’s 30th anniversary in 2010. Despite the advent of new and arguably better-quality digital camera systems such as Micro 4/3rds, there’s without a doubt a soft spot for many with the fixed lens Ricoh GRD series. The razor quick focus and high-quality black & white photographs are among the GRDIII’s high points making it a great street compact camera. As well, un-like other cameras in its class, the GRDIII’s barrel retracts into its body for a small footprint. In May, Stussy and Ricoh will drop a limited run of 500 cameras as Stussy’s re-design includes the use of blue and other iconic imagery throughout. Stay tuned for more looks into the camera which carries a retail price of ¥99,750 JPY (approximately $1,100 USD). While not every collaboration can follow the same heavyweight status as this Ricoh team-up, we aniticipate some big things for 2010.
