    What is a premium camera?

    In response to this blog post about the Nikon Coolpix A and why it has fallen off the radar I came across the following comment: Both this and the Ricoh are saddled with non-interchangeable lenses at f/2.8, which pretty much drops them from any kind of "premium" level consideration. I was...

    Why are there no 50mm fixed focal length serious compacts?

    The primary focal length for today's fixed lens serious compacts is 35mm. But in the past 50mm was considered the standard lens. And I prefer to shoot with 50mm cameras. I wonder why there are no fixed focal length 50mm serious compacts except for the Ricoh GXR/A12 50mm? Would they be unpopular?

    Is there an alternative to Paypal?

    I use a credit card with Paypal instead of linking a checking account. I'm starting to approach my credit card limit through Paypal and then I'll have to be "verified" by linking to a checking account and paying through that. They claim this is for "security" which is downright silly because I...

    Ricoh Sean Reid reviews the GRD4

    Do you still have a DSLR?

    Printing and sensor size and other criteria

    Last night I printed a number of pictures for a family presentation in my son's kindergarten class. They came from a number of cameras, including the E-P3, GRD3, GXR/A12 and XZ-1. It seemed to me that even though the pictures looked similar on screen, they printed quite differently. Now...

    Horizontal vs vertical pictures

    I've come to realize that I simply do not like to take vertical pictures. When viewing the work of others it is not nearly as much of an issue, but in my own work I no longer take vertical pictures because they just don't seem to work for me. I don't know if this is because I really don't...

    W/NW: Roadways

    I have an affinity for pictures of roads, whether detailed closeups or broad vistas, and I've seen some great one here on SC. Perhaps it's the journeys they signify, perhaps it's how beautifully mundane and unappreciated they are, perhaps it's how they signify boundaries and grids and...

    Ricoh Why I love the Ricoh GRD cameras

    One reason at least, among many. With all the hoopla around the GRD4 the GRD3 still rocks. If I could only have one camera... This is a new GRD3. My first one went south for some reason. Image tortured in Silver Efex Pro. And why do love yours?

    Fixed vs detachable EVFs

    I know people have their preferences for built-in or detachable EVFs, but I've come to really appreciate the detachable kind. Yes, they are bulbous and a bit clumsy to deal with, but being able to swivel it 90 degrees has been immensely useful. I have the new Olympus EP3 and 24mm lens and with...

    Camera for vacation

    Of all the worlds troubles I'm fretting over which camera to take on our summer vacation. Most of my cameras are fixed lens serious compacts - Rich GRD3 and GXR with A12 units and Sigma DP2s/DP1x. These don't have the flexibility of zoom lenses so I would have to take multiple cameras. I also...

    Serious compact for birding

    I made a post on the mu-43.com forums about birding and m4/3 cameras. But I'm wondering what other options exist in serious compacts for birding, particularly in the realm of the APS-C sensor? Ricoh does not have anything, Sony is not there yet, what about Samsung? Any leads I should follow for...

    Have you considered going back to a DSLR?

    I am as devoted a serious compact follower as anyone. I moved from a Canon 5D to an Olympus E30 and then to serious compacts almost exclusively (the Ricoh GRD2 was my first serious compact and I was hooked). Every now and then I pick up the E30, but it's pretty much been compacts for a long...
