    Star Wars

    Wasn't quite sure what to post this under. Perhaps just Toy photography would suffice. Anyway, lately my interest in photography has been slowly going off there boil. Time to try something new to me. I'm happy with the early results considering it's not as easy as you think. Now I have the...

    Fuji Fuji X-T30 Announced

    Ok. I've bought a new Olympus OMD EM5 mk2 + 12-40 f2.8. Almost lost the plot with the menu/set up in the first couple of hours. It's still giving me grief after 36 hours. I am getting there though. I am getting to like it. The 12-40 f2.8 is a fantastic lens. I reckon another 24 hours fiddling...

    Light meters

    ive always considered the Ricoh GR metering ( on my copy anyway) to be a little sensitive. I mean it seems to go from over to underexposed and back with very little movement of the camera. It’s like I’m in spot meter mode all the time. Combine that with sun on the screen and high contrast scene...

    Leica Hello from Cumbria

    Hi everbody. Finally made it to this Leica forum. Spent time in Fuji MU43 sony and SC before ending up here. I have a Q on the way :-) I just got fed up of waiting for Ricoh to release a new GR. The Q was the only logical option of me and my photographic requirements . So as soon as it...

    Feeling apathetic !

    So it goes. Lately I've been really trying to stay interested in my photography. Bought my first SLR in 1973. I have had low spots over the years but this one I'm in now is pretty serious. Not happy ! Nothing to do with gear, although I think my days with cameras without viewfinders are...

    Another "what shall I buy" thread

I know it's too much ! I spend much time deciding what to take whe I go out. I've decided that the GoPro and Ricoh are...

    Long lens landscapes

    I've been meaning to take my Dads FZ1000 out for a spin for ages. Yesterday I forced myself to actually do it. I must say i was pleasantly surprised. The focus is quick and accurate, even in difficult lighting. The dynamic range better than expected and sharp lens too. even at the long end. I...

    Scafell Pike

    Tomorrows mountain is Scafell Pike. And after much thought, the camera of choice for the day is the Ricoh GR. Much as I am loving the Sony A7r , I thinks the GR will give me a better view of the mountain, and more keepers. Plus I am happier knowing I can trust the battery life. The weather is...

    Carlisle

    Ventured into Carlisle this morning. They are expecting flooding again later today. While a lot of shops and stores were open, the rain and possible hangovers kept the a lot of them indoors. Dull wet and miserable. I hope for the sake of all those affected, that the floods don't come again...

    Ullswater

    I've neglected my GR since I took delivery of the A7r. I was contemplating buying a wide angle for the Sony. I've changed my mind. While messing about with these two files in Lightroom I realised just how good the GR is, even when compared to the A7r ! Ullswater, Ricoh GR by sucofni, on Flickr...

    Sony A7r review after one day.

    The sound of the shutter ain't that bad. The focusing is better than i was expecting. Most shots up till now have been taken in the "shutter shock" zone with no adverse effects. So I have concluded that all these issues have been made up to promote discussion. I think I'll use it rather than...
