    Re: FUN with Ricoh GR!!!

    While hiking in southeast Arizona recently, we met this old woman on a steep, rocky trail. She had such a nice face and kind personality that, as we chatted, I couldn't help but grab a hip shot. I thought about asking her for a photo, but I think it wouldn't have been the same.

    Maggie, I'm not sure why but I find your first photograph particularly engaging.

    Since attending the Charles Harbutt show in Tucson, I've been looking at a lot of his work. I thought you and others here might enjoy it:

    Not much. Honestly, I think it's the different quality of the light in Hawaii that makes the biggest difference.

    Re: FUN with Ricoh GR!!!



    mellow unsharpnes...misty light...soft light, without sun breaking through...
    cleaning brain....cleaning sight....
    towards South, you are looking, while I'm looking to the left, looking East towards Sweeden, our brother-people, just right over there in the misty hide...
    Wind just mildly blowing from North, and a thought is passing by, Wonder if the swedes have ever forgiving that we some few days ago (in 1520) chopped of the heads of most of the swedish nobility's in Stockholm (well only 82 actually, perhaps a relif for the farmers)(well, later on they took a violent revenge)...well I guess all is forgotten and forgiven nowadays....
    but I don't know why the rumours says that the sweedes are admiring the danes...perhaps its something about more anarchy, perhaps they are looking at us like looking at a Savage people, a bunch of wild apes who just had jumped Down from the trees...don't know, but the admiration is only going one way...even though that ought to be wrong, while the sweedes have more respect towards society, speed limits, paying tax, and drinking of course (I guess they newer learned really to be drinking through), but for my part I admire the approach on the other part of the narrow sea....(even though it might be more fun at this side)
    But....If you can be quiet for a while, you can, apart from those small waves, sense the very long, slow waves, lifting the sealevel up and down....greatings from the North Sea....but it's better to wait for the real spring(but today was a rehearsal), when the wooden bridges are reestablished and you can sit at the end of one, holding your one shoe just above sealevel, og starring at the sea coming slowly up towards your shoe...be carefull....a very silly occupation...but even though one of the nicest....
    Well.....I'll put on my glasses in a while, just to take a sharp look at the World...and drive home....

    Louis, love your BW above, both content and processing. Especially the way the street and light tones run toward infinity. You've got great touch with color and BW.

    And I agree about this thread. I like that it also shows the potential of 28mm, which is not an approach I ever envisioned for myself.

    Thank you for the kind comments. I agree with you about the use of 28mm. Not a focal length I prefer, either but somehow - I can't work out how - it just works with the GR. Mind you, I do tend to crop as you must have noticed as I still like working in 1x1 even if I don't shot 6x6 film any longer.

    Best regards

    I think your comment on the focal is how I feel too. Also I do like and use the 35mm and 47mm crop modes. I printed a 47mm 5.6 MP to 13''x19'' and at low iso (so it has all the detail) it still looks pretty detailed, so not afraid to use that.

    Apparently Ricoh submitted a lens patent for an F2.0 equivalent to 35mm... if this is next year's model with say a 24 MP sensor, then we should be able to have 35mm and a crop to 70mm at 6 MP... I would love that, and that would go a long way for me to not want at teleconverter as much (I really want a teleconverter).

    If Carlsberg did cameras... they'd probably do a Ricoh GR and it would be the best camera in the world...

    Picture this- 5.6 MP crops are 2912 pixels wide x 1936 height . At 13'' by 19'' printing landscape that's:

    2912 pixels/19'' ~= 153 dpi and 1936 / 13'' ~= 149 dpi. Older monitors had about 72 dpi, so that's twice that. Given just a modicum of distance, and the tones on a good photo printer, that's not so bad at all.

    Just imagine when you were editing on a 72 dpi monitor 24 bit B&W/color... now you can see that at twice the dpi...

    It looks pretty good actually but this will work with that level of detail in the low ISO's as high ISO's starts eating away detail through noise. Remember the GR has no AA filter, so these are pretty "sharp" pixels, particularly for B&W.

    Re: FUN with Ricoh GR!!!

    Are those converted from DNGs?

    Because you're right, they're not quite working.

    Sorry, thorkil, but these aren't really working for me. I've no problem with super high ISO and noise. But I think that treatment usually works best in images with simple, strong forms (think Moriyama), and not so well with more detailed images like you have here. Especially in the BW versions there doesn't seem to be much to carry the photos. Mind you, this is just my personal bias. Of course there's always the prospect of a 400,600 ISO D4s.
