    Initial Thoughts on the Nikon Coolpix A versus the Ricoh GR Digital III (2009)

    Hey all! I've been using these now for a little bit and from the get go - I actually love both of them. Having had heartburn with EVF/OVF-less cameras in the past, I've slowly started to get past that personal problem (same with power zooms, especially since I've embraced the stepped zoom)...

    Ricoh The GX200 in 2024

    It just arrived today! The seller still had the box, original lens cap, software CD. It appears to be in very good shape. The deal I got was cheap because the flash doesn't work....but honestly, I never use the flashes on the smaller cameras like this. It feels just like I remember the GR II...

    Compact Let's discuss the Pentax MX-1 and the Ricoh GRD IV (now the GRD III)

    I currently have the Pentax MX-1 and absolutely love it. I find, even for its age, it provides a fun experience. The AF is quick enough, I love the quality you can pull from the RAW files and that you can process the RAW in camera to a jpg profile - reversal film and B&W being my favorites -...

    Fuji Unscientific Fuji X100VI and Ricoh GRIIIx B&W mode comparison

    Ok, bear with me while I do some explaining. The process I followed was to set the Fuji to "Acros+R filter" and the Ricoh to "HiBw" for shooting. There was no exposure compensation set, ISO was set similarly to auto on both cameras and metering set to spot. I didn't move between each shot...

    Ricoh Suppose they made another GR. . .

    What FF equivalent focal length would it be? The could make a wider one (20 mme) or a longer one (90 mme). The long one would create a trinity of GRs, 28, 40, and 90, which would be similar to the so-called prime trinities for ILCs. I bet there would be less total weight than many of them, of...
