    Philosophy About Criticism: the three key questions

    Many years ago, in a university Art History class, I was taught that art criticism was really about answers to three pertinent questions: 1. What did the artist set out to do? 2. Was it done well? 3. Was it worth doing? These three questions have served me well when critically examining my...

    Your best three images from the last year.

    If you're like me, photography is both a pleasure and a frustration. A frustration, because perfection [whatever that is] is always another image away. It seems to me that a thread, over time, could show us how our proficiency and our aesthetic sensibilities evolve. So, please show us three...

    Have your FOV preferences changed over time?

    A while back I was contemplating a new camera purchase. I try to keep a leash on my camera spending, and objectifying the selection process is helpful in this. Otherwise, the 'best' camera would be the one I could least afford. I decided to work backward from the photos. That is, I assembled a...

    Ricoh GR3: No rocker switch, less dust intrusion?

    There's some speculation on Ricoh fora that the elimination of the rocker switch is intended to mitigate potential dust intrusion. Interesting idea, though I do not know with any certainty that this is the location where dust is drawn as the lens extends, as claimed. But this seems to me to be a...

    Ricoh Ricoh “Premium Kit”

    Just noted the existence of a GR2 Premium kit, containing just about every conceivable option, all in an aluminum case. Release, I understand to mark an anniversay year for the digital GR line. Does anyone here have such a kit, and if so, what are your thoughts on it? I’d normally scoff at...

    Ricoh Hypothetically, a GR collection....

    So, it has occurred to me that it might be interesting to assemble a full collection of the [digital] GR. GRD to GRDIV, GR, GRII, and so. Maybe the LE versions. This would allow an overview of the design philosophy, and to contrast them in use. That, and they're just cool objects. Has this...

    Shooting track events

    Inspired by Peter's post regarding panning shots of cyclists, I'll ask members about photographing track and field events. I spend a fair amount of time at track events this time of year, and find them enjoyable - at least on the warm and dry days. But... they're difficult to capture well...

    Ricoh What's with the GRD4?

    Does anyone happen to know the production numbers of the GRD4 vs, say, the GRD3? Finding a nice used one is tough, without paying an unrealistic premium. Is the demand really that much higher than the supply? I'm sure some people respond to the small-sensor advantage, but enough to move prices...
