    Ricoh The Ricoh GR image thread

    Took my GR + GW-3 wide to a high vantage point over a very busy highway (for those who know a bit about the Netherlands: the A7 across the Afsluitdijk). The GW-3 has a 62mm thread but it vignets heavily with filters so I use a 72mm filter on a step-up ring. An ND1000 brought down shutter-speeds...

    Long time no see here, primarily due to family and job demands. I didn't stop shooting though and I recently got myself the awesome GW-3. It's good to be back! Trainstation by Mike Bing, on Flickr Towering cloudcover by Mike Bing, on Flickr Impression of Sloterdijk trainstation by Mike...

    Ricoh GR does London

    To all, thank you VERY much for the lovely comments! On nr.1 KillRamsey said it is intriguing in that "the scale looks off... it looks initially like a shot of a mid-sized room, and then you see the children and realize how BIG all those other things must be." What I wanted to add is that the...

    Ricoh GR does London

    Sorry, I realized I uploaded a slightly different edit to Flickr so I refreshed the links in my original post. You should be able to see them now.

    Ricoh Architectural detals with the GR

    Nice of you to spot that - I hadn't. Only explanation I can think of is that this really is a narrow street with a few highrise apartment buildings on the other side (behind me as I was shooting) and you can still see reflections of the balconies in the right window. Pure chance but kind of...

    Ricoh GR does some long exposures

    You presume correctly. Luckily it takes a 49mm filterthread which is the same size as the DA35mm/f2.4 I use on my DSLR so the filter serves both cameras.

    Ricoh GR does some long exposures

    Some of these were with a Haida 10-stops ND filter. All were processed with open-source software (mostly MuminanceHDR, Digikam, ImageMagick, UFRaw and GIMP) Northsea pre-sunset by newmikey, on Flickr Mad sky color by newmikey, on Flickr Windmill in twilight by newmikey, on Flickr

    Ricoh GR in Cheltenham

    Very nice! You do well with people pics (at which I suck, basically). The first two are my favorites.

    Ricoh Architectural detals with the GR

    Every time I pick this little wonder up, the sharpness and richness of detail surprises me. It is so good that I find the results of my K-5 IIs and GR virtually indistinguishable so I often carry around the Pentax with a 50-135mm and the GR asif it were a second body with a wideangle lens.

    Ricoh A few experiments

    As a plugin for GIMP, it is somewhat restricted (purely personal opinion) so I use it from the command-line through a bash script. The commandline for this effect was: gmic $FILE -gimp_dreamsmooth 5,1,1,0.8,0,0.8,1,24,0 -o $FILE_NO_smooth.jpg

    Ricoh I was seduced by the color red

    Never felt the need to pimp any of my cameras ever before but when I saw the red ring and leather neckstrap, I was a goner: CMG03882-Ricoh-GR-red-ISO800-2014-web by newmikey, on Flickr

    Ricoh GR shots in HDR

    The following images were arrived at by taking a 3-shot handheld bracket with the GR and aligning and tonemapping it in LuminanceHDR, then manipulating levels & curves in Showfoto (the Digikam image editor) - as was the one B/W conversion - while noise-removal plus final sharpening was done in...

    Ricoh HELP. I can't seem to get anything in focus. - Ricoh GR

    BTW, you should probably post this in another subforum, this is the <1 inch forum - you are likely to get at least a few answers related to older Ricoh compacts with a small sensor, not your APS-C GR. Correct forum is here: https://www.photographerslounge.org/forumdisplay.php?f=103

    Ricoh HELP. I can't seem to get anything in focus. - Ricoh GR

    Looong list, but let me try to answer some as I'll not pretend I can answer all. 1. DNGs appear sharper than JPEGS. But DNGs seem to show more grain. Why? DNG's do not "show" anything, they are merely archival files containing all of the info off your sensor. By using a raw converter, you can...

    Ricoh The Ricoh GR image thread

    Just landed at Innsbruck airport - suitcase didn't make it regretfully but my GR was in my computer backpack - this is why I wanted the GR: APS-C quality without having to lug my K-5 and lenses everywhere I have to go for work. Shot from the 10th floor of the local Hilton. 1. Innsbruck before...

    Ricoh Ricoh GR firmware version v2.03 released

    Not a DxO user but in the meantime you could use Exiftool to edit the exif manufacturer tag so it reads the original "old" tag and DxO will recognise it.

    New Ricoh GR user from Holland

    The GR does not replace my Pentax K-5 kit but supplements it. I have been shooting Pentax DSLRs for the past 7 years, film for the 35 years before that. I specialize in land/city-scapes, architecture and close-up work. I stink at portraits or anything involving living, breathing stuff even if...
