    Yes,I appreciate that Godfrey, it was a suggestion for a new feature that could perhaps be implemented. It could work something like the crosshairs that you can guide around the screen for macro target and they could go green when that point was in focus. I appreciate the algorithm would have to wait for the user to move the focus back and forward through focus though. Perhaps not very useable as there is no way for the camera to know that the focus is being twiddled. Wish they had put a cam follower in.

    Glad to hear that the current firmware is working so well though and thanks also for the comments on how your lenses worked out without correction.

    It will be nice to play with v1.40 firmware tomorrow when it is released.

    :-)

    It is somewhat amusing that you (and others!, you're not alone) are already thinking up new features for a camera that isn't quite released yet. I know I'll spend a week or two studying the A12 Camera Mount once it arrives just to know what's there already in detail.

    The always inventive minds of photographer gear heads ... ! ;-)

    Here is my take:

    1. Crop
    2. removed spot on path way



    I think this way it is more about the mural.

    Mine was similar, but I left in the pavement - I did the right side crop as you have done. Yours is the best.
    It presents a conundrum to the viewer on a first glance - is the tree part of the mural? what about the pavement? Which adds interest.
    I think cropping is one of the most important elements of the art of photography

    Thanks Uwe

    We crop minor because the first crop is with your viewfinder.

    Agreed, Uwe. But this is an interesting one - my wife always crops in the viewfinder and she gets a few instances in PP where she loses a good image because she was too tight on it, or there is no room for distortion or perspective adjustment.
    My current method is to make sure that I have enough sensor resolution to handle significant crops, but always to envisage the final result so the PP cropping is minimal. Often though, I "see" something within the image in PP that I did not see when taking the shot, that demands a significant crop. In many of my flower shots I find myself taking a 4x3 image and eventually cropping it square. From your posts you don't appear to do many too square formats?

    That is true. To tight can be an issue. By the way often Content Aware Fill is an alternative to crop.

    Lovely, Keith! Like this one a lot! The previous Wall photo is also very good and I like the cropping that you and Uwe did.

    My time this week seems to constantly be slipping away from me. I've got a ton of new work to finish, photos and a brief article from the session with Uwe and the "GXR-M" on Monday ... but the Leica M4-2 I ordered arrived yesterday and distracted me all day!

    So here are two "beauty shots" I made of it, fitted with the Skopar 50, made with the GXR + A12 50mm Macro:




    I've got an appointment this morning ... Hopefully, I'll get back to my desk and get some this other stuff done later on!

    Thanks Godfrey, I only had a couple of minutes to catch it, should have grabbed a larger format camera though

    Just saw your first roll through the Leica M. Looks like you are having fun with film again.

    I have preordered the A12 Mount, expected "Mid September". Had hoped there might be some available on the 9th...

    When it comes to shooting with a Leica M, I *always* have fun. The rangefinder needs adjustment to focus accurately and obtain proper coincidence of the images, but this is such a nice example and I got it for such a good price it is well worth the cost.

    I'm pre-paid on the A12 Camera Mount at Popflash.com and #2 or #3 on the pre-order list, so I'll get mine as soon as they receive them turn them around for shipping. I'm very eager to get to work with it! I'm hoping for Sept 15th.

    Very good Godfrey, that's a very nice looking camera indeed.

    Just processed another from this evening. I think I like this one more, but have to spend more time on them.

    Citroen Traction Avant 15

    I love the looks of old Citroens. I ran into a couple in Palo Alto yesterday and couldn't help myself from making romantic photos of them. This is one of my favorites from the set:


    There are seven photos total ... here is the link to the gallery slide show:

    http://www.flickr.com/photos/gdgphot...85529664/show/

    Thanks for looking! Comments always appreciated.

    Thank you both.

    They are scale models. The two cars are part of Terry Shuchat's diorama at Keeble & Shuchat Photography, the camera shop in Palo Alto. My attempt was to portray them as the real thing in a romantic light. :-)

    Nicely done, Keith! A good application of HDR technique.

    Only minor criticism is that to my eye it seems rotated a couple of degrees counter clockwise.

    David,

    I like this photo, it draws me in.

    I'm not sure what I'm viewing, though, the center of its focus to my eye is the couple at the far left. Much of the rest seems a bit of a jumble that I can make out bits and pieces of ... Looks like a museum display or something like that, but there are a lot of distracting elements. It could use just a little simplification to make the intent clearer.

    GXR with S10 24-72mm zoom

    I bought the S10 module in the Adorama sale. Feels quite different to the P10 in use. I liked the extra width (24 versus 28mm), and it seems a bit more responsive. Tough to pick one over the other, but I like the range of the P10

    Lovely picture this is! Personally I prefer this uncropped version.

    BTW Keith, I did buy into the system (slowly ) with the P10 module as a kit.
    Can be a pocketable snapshooter while traveling.
    I do see quiet some distortion on the pole on the right side. Is this shot around 28 mm, or did you do some skewing in PS?

    Next will be the A12/28 and M mount module. M module is not for sale yet around here. I also bought the viewfinder. (For half the price in Hong Kong)

    Glad to see you here, Michiel. Can't wait to see what you can do with the P10 - remember it is small sensor and give the images some tender loving care.

    The m-mount is available in Europe, someone got theirs last week. But someone said that Ricoh only shipped 10 to the UK!?. This info is available on the Ricoh Forum which is European based. http://www.ricohforum.com/

    Popflash in California shipped their preorders yesterday - allowing for Canadian customs and post office I should be using mine in three months

    I have the Ricoh half case and strap which dresses the camera up nicely - its only available in tan, but I like the look.

    How about some of those nice harbor pictures to start

    PS The mural on the wall was skewed in Photoshop

    Excitement builds:

    My A12 Camera Mount was processed through the Santa Clarita USPS mail facility last evening at 11:05pm. Santa Clarita is five and a half hours by truck from Santa Clara, it might have made it into the local USPS office and onto the truck for delivery by now! Hmm hmm hmm.
