    Re: FUN with Ricoh GR!!!

    Venice i july, at the Vaporetto (Waterbus)....can't recommend that period (but we/I just had to go...else the abstinences would knock me down)....perhaps I have been walking Venice what would be like a non-stop-total of 6-7 weeks, but even though I'm only slowly beginning of being familiar with some areas....and still the tresures are being hide everywhere allover, just waiting for your eyes to pick them up in a gently manner.....so you just have to jump out and get lost in another time...

    Campo Santa Marguritha in Dorsoduro in Venice.
    Where 85% are local inhabitants or students. The mood is nearby always very special and relaxed.
    Go down further 50 yards at the right and buy the some of the best pizza's the world can deliver, a pizza-slice for the most demanding stomach at 2 Euro.

    Tanks John, but it was way too short, only some very short 7 hours, but when one has to have a little injection of that city, one has to go, short or not.

    Thank you, John. For me, they're the perfect match of cameras for most of my work.

    I sold my black M9 a couple years ago and wish I hadn't. Since then I've been drifting around camera-wise, never quite satisfied and feeling homeless. Much as I love the GR, I need a full-size camera, too. Not sure another M9 would do it, but I often wonder.

    for my part I still consider the A7S, but I don't know if I can live with that electronic viewfinder, but can take CV15, 21 Elmarit etc. without problems, and can go way up in speed and still keeping a decent output.

    I have an E-M5 that I use my old Nikkor lenses on and that I keep in my bedroom for kitty and doggie shots. Actually, it's kind of become my "animal rig" since I use the Nikkor 105 (210 on the OM-D) on it for wildlife!

    But when it comes to making photos that really matter, I find myself with the M9-P or the GR.

    Funny but the GR is the only camera I own that brings me close to the kind of shooting experience I enjoyed with my Leica kit and Hasselblad film cameras (both now long departed). I can't work out why. It just feels good in the hand.

    Not decrying my A7 or Sigma DPxMs, they are great tools but have absolutely no character.

    When it comes to cameras you appear to be promiscuous.

    Must be nice to have all that money to spend on equipment.

    Yes Thorkil.. really got it cheap.
    The GR has perhaps the richest tonality found from any camera today.

    The purpose of mine is simply to leave it in the gear console in my car. It happened too often I passed a wonderful scene by car and didn't have any camera at hand
    Furthermore the GC5 belt holster makes you ever ready in the street.

    Yes, I can't think of any camera that offers more for the money.

    It would be nice to hear how folks use their GRs. Whenever possible, for street shooting I use TAv, f8 and 200. I've got Fn1 set up for Snap Focus and Fn2 for Snap Focus distance. But I usually stick with 1.5m.

    My AEL/AFL button is set to AE lock/hold. I meter off any middle gray area, press the button and leave it alone until the light changes. Then aim and press twice for the new lighting situation.

    Pretty brainless shooting when light is sufficient.

    If not, I switch to Av and auto ISO with spot AF and focus/recompose, if necessary. The one thing I don't like is the slow shutter speeds the GR selects. It seems to prefer 1/40. Not good for street shooting.

    That about it for 90% of the time. How about you?

    I still do not know how they can offer so much for so little. I was showing mine to a friend the other day and as he exclaimed, "it even has an electronic level!". The only thing they did not include with this camera was the kitchen sink.

    Having said that I suppose if they asked serious money because it is such a small and unassuming camera the average punter would not buy it. But then I doubt if the average punter would want one. I believe the sensor, incidentally, is the same as in the new Leica T which is why I won't be buying one of them.

    I honestly do not know how they will top this version of the camera unless they are able to (say) squeeze a full frame 24mpx sensor with no OLP into the next version.

    BTW, in terms of setting I can't remember the last time I changed it from TAv, with aperture at f5.6 and speed at 1/125 (as in "f5.6, 1/125 and be there"). I invested in the GR optical viewfinder and mostly I use that to frame. I am confident I can pull back detail and remove noise up to iso6400 in LR and for that reason I honestly don't care what iso in street conditions the camera chooses. In fact, the missed opportunities or mistakes I have made have been when I have tried to use the camera in Av or Tv mode. With a 28mm equiv fov you have all the depth of field you need even at f5.6 for urban landscape which is my schtick.

    From today:

    Thanks for sharing your settings...

    It's hard to see which way the GR can be improved except for the extremely few quibbles it might have.
    I have nothing against 24 MP none cropped sensor of course, but I've seen 24 MP RAWs out that isn't as tonal rich as the GR.
    But perhaps Ricoh are forced to replace it due to obsolete electronic components?

    I ordered my GR before it is too late.

    BTW Louis, how did you process the lovely image?

    Every time a legend is to be replaced I become insane. That happened with the release of the DP Quattro and now again with the GR.
    I just so much wish one manufacturer at least would make an as flawless camera as the GR trio with fixed focals a la DP Merrills. Throw the GR sensor and engine inside, I wouldn't mind, and give me IBIS and EVF and I'll hold my tounge for a very long time

    Re: FUN with Ricoh GR!!!

    splendid John!, specially the last, and the (welshaped) legs (free choise)....
    well, I'm in general way too often too careless, just fire away, have the focus at Adj. as first and snapdistance at second choice, might try to use your setting. I ought to find a middle mindset between the half hour per shot with the Hassy SWC at tripod(history even though its just behind my back), Nikon as meter, - and the too careless mindset.
    Also aim at 8 and 200 when walking about for street.
    But way too often at MultiAF, while else I have to get my glasses on. But should go back to spot AF, it ought not being so hard to find the centre, even without glasses. I must try. Else at TAv setting too. But always at Multimetering, perhaps a bad habit from my Nikon area, where matrix metering always was spot, but perhaps should try your setting, thanks for inspiration.

    Re: FUN with Ricoh GR!!!

    thorkil, give the AE lock button a try. Set it for AE lock only and to remain locked until pressed again. Multi metering would be fine for that.

    On the last shot, for example, I had the seated man's black clothes as foreground and sky as background. Neither good for automatic metering. So I quickly pointed at the sidewalk, pressed AE lock and that's that. I took about ten shots with various people walking by, and they all have identical and accurate exposure. That plus 1m snap focus and no thinking required. Just watching and waiting.

    Great shot! The passenger looks a bit annoyed but your neighbour did not even notice you? Were you sitting on the same bench? Must have a soft shutter! (sorry to interrupt)

    Hey, Michiel. Yes, I saw the seated fellow from a distance and was drawn to his all-black outfit. It seemed a little incongruous for a guy his age,, at least where I live. I was also thinking how nice the blacks would look in a GR file.

    So I sat down next to him, maybe three feet away. I set the camera on my lap, locked AE, framed, and waited for something to enter the other side of the frame. Once I had the camera set, I didn't look at it again, but just kept watching the scene. I took a few shots and liked this one best. The other guy's expression is pure luck. The whole process took about one minute while waiting for the train. Pretty routine for how I use the GR.

    In my experience nobody notices this camera if you're quick and don't fiddle with it. That what I love about snap focus and AE lock. Set and forget. In this case a flip screen would have been nice. I hope the next version offers that.

    Re: FUN with Ricoh GR!!!

    I'm becoming attached to the mood the normal B&W setting in Jpegs create in the camera...
    Back to Venice....just across the shipyard in Fondamenta Nani, sneak in at Cantinone Gia' Schiavi, order a little glass of cold Fragolino di Bianco, a sweat delicious white wine...place your elbow at the desk...just let time pass by, and the Italian (mostly) passing in and out...
