    Ricoh Updated *** Street with GRD's ***

    I know which article you're speaking of and I feel this commentary is a bit too politically biased.

    Is my DSLR compact enough? Small enough?

    Using that site, I'm stunned to see how big the E3 and E5 are compared to the K-5. Those were supposed to be small dSLRs made around the smaller sensor. Those things are utterly huge and comparable to a 5D in certain dimensions.

    BTW- is there anything anyone would do differently?

    Feedback Me love you longtime, do you wanna be my friend ?

    Facebook isn't terribly evil when one knows what it's about. It's great to keep in touch with people and for people to know I'm still alive, even though I'm on another continent and often busy (as are they). Small friends list of people I personally know, accepting only people I know, no...

    Thanks. It was also a real experience using the primes, which, to be honest, seems a lot more fun than using a zoom. For a while, I've been looking to get that "imperfect" feel that sometimes adds to street shooting scenes, but with a zoom, especially one where I can go wide, I tend to line...

    Christopher Street Day Gay Parade, Dresden DE, 2012

    Thanks. I posted another picture last week of two guys on a couch on the sidewalk. That's really where this effect became viable. I think it will work quite well in other urban settings, especially to bring out a "grittier" appearance. We have lots of abandoned/derelict buildings out here...

    Hah, that guy had very, very bad luck. For the non-Euros, out here, it's common for young males and sometimes women to have their pre-wedding parties in the streets, with their friends, silly outfits, getting drunk, being fools. So the guy in the last picture happened to be there with his...

    Expired Pentax M 85 f2 (preferably EU)

    Yep, I saw a couple here on fleabay that went for quite nice pricing, but I was away for the weekend, so couldn't monitor them. I got an offer on the german pentax forum, but the guy was obviously making an attempt at gouging. I could simply go and sacrifice some length and speed and gain AF...

    Expired Pentax M 85 f2 (preferably EU)

    I'm looking for one of these, hoping for it to be in ok condition. I've got feelers out in some other forums.

    Thanks a bunch. The processing is something I've been developing for some time but I could never get it to work right on my EX1. It's basically a desaturated, high contrast effect in LR, which took me about 15 revisions or so to get. It's pretty temperamental, to be honest, but the results...

    Thanks. There may be some more on the way, but I got the important ones out first. I have a black and white set that looks, IMO, better, but it's tough to document an event that's about "color" in black and white.

    Christopher Street Day Gay Parade, Dresden DE, 2012

    I was shopping in the city center today and thankfully, I had my K5 on hand. DELUGE PHOTO: Christopher Street Gay Rights Parade, Dresden Germany, 2012 The scene was chaos and I dove right into the middle of the crowds. The settings were a bit flawed, as I didn't set them back from the last...

    Spiral

    Very tough choices. How was the focusing on the 100 WR? The thing is, I'd be using it for concerts and I don't think it would be fast enough as a macro, unless I lock down focusing ranges. In this case, the Tamron 70-200 might be a better bet, but I want to work with some small primes first...

    Just Sitting Around On The Street

    Cool, nice to know that it works. I'm not totally satisfied, as I wasn't familiar with the cam just yet, but I had to shoot or risk losing the moment. They saw me with the cam on the other side of the street and actually invited me over to shoot, so I did and that was it.
