    Ricoh First three pics out of new GR - WOW!

    It's odd to me that Lloyd Chambers (diglloyd) -- a very rigorous reviewer -- does not consider this the best sensor. He admired the Ricoh GR hugely -- it was his "camera of the year" -- but he has said a number of times that the sensor is bettered on other cameras. I wonder whether he is...

    Ricoh First three pics out of new GR - WOW!

    This is precisely the experience I'm having. NONE of my lens/sensor combinations have managed this level of sharpness. I'm shooting a D7100 with what should be among the sharpest Nikon lenses -- the 85/1.8G, 50/1.8G, etc. -- and it's just not the same. Despite the consensus among testers that...

    Ricoh Suddenly can't get snap mode - at ALL

    Doubly weird: if I turn the camera off and on again, I get snap function back. For example: I've set MY3 to go into snap mode immediately. It won't when I simply turn the dial to MY3. But if I turn to MY3 and then turn the camera off and on, it works properly. Is this broken?

    Ricoh Suddenly can't get snap mode - at ALL

    Another possibly stupid question: I fooled around with settings to put the main shutter release in snap mode, and the AFL button into AFL mode. And now the snap function has basically evaporated. The shutter button isn't in snap mode. If I set the function button to toggle between snap and...

    Ricoh New GR guy - not the usual question about TAv

    Okay... I think I may have just answered my own question. I need "Shutter/Aperture Auto Shift" set to either Shutter or Aperture, right? Update: yerp. All is fine. (Moderators: feel free to delete this thread.)

    Ricoh New GR guy - not the usual question about TAv

    Hi all. I've been shooting with a GR for a couple of days now (and essentially love it), but I've noticed something odd about TAv mode. Most people are concerned that when the light gets too low, the ISO shoots through the roof. I have the opposite problem: once it gets down to ISO 100, the...

    Hello from Oaxaca

    Thanks, all! For some reason I didn't realize that I had all of these comments -- I *thought* I had things set up to email me whenever I get responses to a thread. Biro, life's good in Oaxaca. Pretty loud this time of year. As for writer/photographers: with print magazines it's always...

    Hello from Oaxaca

    Hi all. I'm a Canadian living in Oaxaca, Mexico. Just starting to get interested in serious compacts: I've been looking at the Ricoh GR. In fact, back in the day, I shot film with a Ricoh GR1 (and published a few photos with it -- didn't tell my editor they were taken with a...
