    Re: FUN with Ricoh GR!!!

    You are probably right John about simplicity. But I personally still love the mood in the Picture 2. og 3. anyway. And the Jpegs can't manage a solid B&W conversion at those ISO's.
    The GRIV was far more able to deliver weird structure in a pleasent way (for me at least) when staying at the edge of the sensors capacity, even at and actually foremost at jpegs. I miss that strange capacity, looking at the old IV Pictures yesterday.

    @thorkil: I was referring to the BW versions. I think color works much better, giving a nice atmosphere that is appropriate to the scene.

    @everyone: Is anyone using an external finder? I'm considering one for use with snap focus. Aren't Ricoh's offerings all 4:3? If so, I guess it's the Voigtlander. Any other suggestions? Thanks.

    I just use the screen, myself. I've got a Voigtlander 28mm finder, but no inclination to use it with the GR.

    Thanks, Maggie. I've actually grown to love LCD shooting, but it is hard to see expressions and gestures and other fine detail sometimes. I just wanted to try a finder. I've got a 35mm Voigtlander that I never use. Maybe I'll sell it and get a 28. Any interest in trading?

    Not really. I use the finder on my film Leicas.

    I'm surprised at how much I do you use the dedicated Ricoh external viewfinder. I'm even more surprised that I can still get the camera with the viewfinder in my coat pocket!

    You can alter the format to 2:3 or 1:1.

    But, I'm happy to use the screen, even if I use the viewfinder on the Leicas.

    Great shot, Louis, and fine processing. The church sure adds significance. I had to look up "dossing." I don't recall ever hearing the term. Chiefly British, the dictionary says.

    Thanks, John. Glad you found a definition - I was not trying to be obtuse - I think the word really describes the photograph.

    Taken tonight... on a simple trip to get kitty litter at a Walgreens two blocks away... the importance of carrying the camera, *always*... (for a street photographer).

    Maggie, I like the composition and angle of the first shot. Wish the people in the upper right were not there, or just no people. Like the light on it too.

    On the technical side, I was surprised this shot works in color, no banding, and it's ISO 8000 in pretty poor light.

    I processed that DNG file in Silver Efex Pro 2. The GR loves it.

    Which presets do you favor? I usually find the default with a few tweaks works well.

    Lately I've been trying OnOne's Perfect BW and finding it nice too. Hard to miss with the GR files.

    I don't usually shoot color, but I was walking home from the train station last night and thought this was a pretty cool scene. It was very dark out, but ISO 3200 worked well enough.
