    I'm thinking of starting GAS-aholics anonymous

    I thought that another way was to go straight to what i would personally consider the equipment that would brake that GAS syndrome, the leica m9 in my case. Like ... "what else would i want to shoot with after the m9"? Unfortunately, it's not the case hehe. ... I bough two other camera since...

    Critique Wanted I don't know why I like it...

    i think it's a great photo. it's having its own imperfections, but it's transforming it in something even more perfect to our eyes. Don has explained it with meaningful words. and since you asked for feedbacks, let me add my own layer of explanation, mostly based on composition. BBS was...

    Fuji Fuji X10 Sample Images

    many thanks for posting all these x10 shots. the more i think about it, the more i am convinced that the x10 will be my next camera. there seems to be a balance on this camera that you cannot find on other bodies. best of both worlds it seems, DSLR combined to compacts. DR looks very very...

    Stuck in a Photographic Rut and Losing Momentum

    being a father of three, (11, 8, and 3 years old), i can definitely understand what you're going through. of course, you don't need kids to understand, as creative slowdowns can happen to anyone. but it's a fact that kids can drain your energy in a way nothing else can. and when you are down and...

    Ricoh GRD 3 vs GRD 4 - serious money issue

    good call Ray. AF is definitely supposed to be faster on the GRD4. forgot about it.

    Ricoh GRD 3 vs GRD 4 - serious money issue

    you still have a lot of people shooting with their GRD1, GRD2, and GRD3 models. i don't see why these cameras would appear obsolete or outdated because of the GRD4. they are all very capable, and besides, as you can see by observing the minimum amount of changes new models received in the...

    Ricoh GRD IV Conflicted

    I don't think it's fair comparing camera with such a different sensor size. When it comes to street photography, the grd iv is the best as you're not having to lose time with thin DOF. It's just not having any. But once again, you just don't do the same type of photography with these cameras...

    I have had 6 images invited to the Getty Images database!! Blimey!!

    Congrats! It's a great start! It also means it could continue if you post more good shots. The frustration is that you need to fill release forms each time there's a person or a recognizable piece of architecture in your submitted image. I'll admit it's a major pain. I started having a few...

    The Fuji and Ricoh Brothers

    it's actually very useful seeing these side by side. i have been very tempted by the x10 for a main zooming compact system and this allows me to see how much bigger these guys are compared to the GRDIV thanks Landshark!

    Ricoh GRD3 Shots

    for me the third shot is definitely the best. well composed, the opening coming from the reflection is a great features that attracts the eye. well done!

    Ricoh Richoh GRD IV lens problem

    Don, i erased my latest batch of images from the camera so i'll check the shots i have at home. i don't want to anticipate too much on this, i was just feeling that a few things were fishy, but the camera works great though.

    Leica Showcase Leica M Image Thread

    Armanius: version I :) very happy with it. version II is supposed to be a bit smaller but i don't see the need to upgrade. this one is perfectly fitting my needs.

    Ricoh Richoh GRD IV lens problem

    kinggab, that's unfortunate. i am having some weird things happening too with my GRD IV. and no matter how much i love it, it does seem less reliable than expected. and i'm not the nervous type when it comes to cameras. first of, there's a number of times where i have to shut the camera and...

    Ricoh First series with the GRD IV

    thank you all for the kind comments. i'm still having lots of fun with the GRDIV, to the point of thinking it might be the best camera i have ever had concerning the fun factor, responsiveness, etc. i was going around in the fog this morning in Kirkland WA, both with my m9 and my GRDIV...

    Ricoh First series with the GRD IV

    Thanks for the kind words! Will: i've received the same feedback a lot :) same for my art actually: Sparth > Concept design & visual development i guess it's just a way to compose and chose subjects. i LOVE composing! wether it be in photography or concept art.

    A handful of cameras

    i think it's totally fine from the moment you're expanding your general versatility hehe. :) for my case, having four general cameras, (5dmkII, leica m9, leica x1, Ricoh GRD IV) helps me create through photographic phases and moods we all have at moments. good luck at resisting!

    Throwaway Pics

    interesting! i think the final result is having good details and the subject is here allright. you also placed the central subject on the lower right third and the strong cables are leading straight to it. however compo wise, the high contrast is too overwhelming as it is creating multiple...

    Ricoh First series with the GRD IV

    Hi all. here's a first series of GRD IV shots i have been taking during these two weeks. it is actually great trying to get used to a small sensor again. i thought i wasn't going to go back to small sensor cameras ... nonsense! sensor size does not matter when it comes to subjects and...

    Leica Leica X1 Image Thread

    a late thanks to all for the kind comments. :) i'll try to post more. nippa: well i really have specific presets that i tweak according to each shot. i sometimes work a lot of time on these, as i'm never totally satisfied until i get tones i find perfectly balanced. (for my own taste of...

    Ricoh Sean Reid reviews the GRD4

    good call, Paul. i still don't know much about the digital GRD IV interface, but can't wait to give it a try in the next days. i sincerely hope it will not alter the snap focus mode too much, or that they at least heard your valid concern. s

    Ricoh GRD IV in Stock at B&H

    Andrewteee: when i saw jakru's post today, i actually called B&H and asked them to switch to the black one. i will receive it on thursday. it might be the only way to get it now. B&H admited they were not knowing anything about the white version or when they would receive it. s

    Leica Leica X1 Image Thread

    Here's a bunch of my x1 images. all what you are saying here is true. it's a hell of a camera, but it's having its quirks. for me, the flash started behaving strange, popping up at any moment, to the point where i could not push it back and have it stay in. mechanism probably broke. on such a...

    Ricoh GRD IV Ship Date??

    thanksfor all these infos! jakri: i called B&H and asked them to switch to the black GRD IV instead of the white. i liked the white version, but not to the point of having to wait three months for it. will received the black one around thursday or friday. s

    Ricoh GRD IV Ship Date??

    i agree it's a bit of a frustration. i don't mind waiting for a camera when there's a clear release date, but this is a bit ridiculous, as several dates were stated. october, then november. then ... unknown release date. same on B&H. have one on pre-order since the beginning of october. :(

    RAW - making it less antisocial

    Great article! but i agree that it's a bit of a paradox you're describing here, since the RAW format is specifically meant at being creative and benefit a lot from shots with a bit more effort and dedication. my guess is that the "high quality but low maintenance" concept isn't realistic. High...
