    Re: FUN with Ricoh GR!!!

    Thanks John. I had a GXR at one point, but stepped up to the M240. Really impressed with the ricoh line and this GR is ticking all the boxes for a compact camera. Trying to get used to snap focus and remembering all the settings I programmed in! I have my1 setup for street with snap focus and f/8, my2 setup for the 47mm crop and my3 for 35mm. And I haven't noticed any degradation with the crop modes. It's my compact MATE!

    I could never remember my MY settings, so I don't use them anymore. I mostly use TAv and let ISO run. If the light allows I always use snap focus.

    One feature I really enjoy is AE Lock/Hold. I set aperture and shutter using TAv, then point at a middle gray area and press AE Lock, which basically locks ISO. I then leave exposure alone until the light changes. Works great for street shooting.

    People talk about the camera getting out of the way. No camera I've owned does that better than the GR.

    I personally dislike the TAv mode, because the ISO strangely goes up very high. I use my GR like I used my film GR1, only in aperture priority. And for photographing in the dark I set the ISO at 3200 maximum.

    Re: FUN with Ricoh GR!!!

    Wouter, what I don't like about aperture priority on the GR is that it seems partial to shutter speed 40. Even when it has room to shoot faster, it still seems to prefer that speed. Not good for street shooting, where I like 250, if possible. TAv meets that need well. Of course, I'm not much of a low-light shooter.

    Re: FUN with Ricoh GR!!!

    In the winter I mostly use ISO 1600 at daytime that helps me to get relative fast shutter speeds. Besides that I really like the texture I get at ISO 1600, both in B&W and color.

    John, just because I need the spelling: does this mean that it lock the exposures at all the following shots until you press the AE Lock once more? (apart from shutting the camera off course)
    ...if so..it might be worth trying it, and pull my pale body out from the couch and confront it with the wild natural light out there in the city-wilderness...

    ps. you use Silver Efex, right? and what for sharpening (apart from being rocksteady and 250 shutter) ?

    Re: FUN with Ricoh GR!!!

    Not exactly, Thorkil. You must press twice -- once to turn AE Lock off and again to turn it back on. This assumes your AE Lock is set to hold rather than press. Can't remember what the default is. On TAv, ISO is the only variable, so you are basically locking ISO. I don't mind letting ISO run high, but don't want bad readings due to backlight or whatever.

    Once one learns to recognize middle gray, it's about the most accurate and mindless exposure method that I know of.

    One thing to watch for: as I recall, pressing the playback button releases AE lock.

    Yes, I use Lightroom and SilverEfex. Pretty straignt conversions, usually with the default preset and some local dodging and burning. Nothing fancy.

    Re: FUN with Ricoh GR!!!

    I'll guess John, this will mean almost zero shutterlag, while the chip should only do shutterspeedcounting? This could mean essential better instant reaction in taking pictures while moving.

    I never thought about it that way, but you're probably right. The camera doesn't have much thinking to do. And if, in addition, you are able to use snap focus....

    But I've never noticed shutter lag to be a GR issue, no matter how I've used the camera.

    when walking, overtaken a person to the right, and slinging your right arm to the left and pointing backwards in a happy-go-lucky way and pushing the trigger while everything, your hand, your body, the other person is moving (and are you hitting the target at all out in the blindness..?) I fell despite TAv, snap distance that measuring the light and setting the iso in the chip, just set you back some very important milliseconds, and the feeling of that ultimate connection often lacks. So I would like to try this way of setting...

    Wouter! Nice to see you around here. You met me before when we discussed the Pentax Q ages ago.

    I envy all of you who pick the Ricoh GR as your main camera. I just can't but not because of the camera, but because I am not a 28mm shooter. But if I was, I know that's where the buying stops.

    There is something just hilarious to me about this shot. Why? I don't know. Must have been some movie reference/video game reference in my brain when I look at the dog.

    I had forgotten about the 35mm crop.

    Thanks for reminding me. That URL is great and inspired me to alter my camera tomorrow.

    Yes, it is. It works best when you already have two images in your mind to photograph where the latter one will be the kind of silhouette image.

    One week with my new Ricoh GR. I'm amazed by the quality and rendition of this little camera. Quite impressive
    I have a Fujifilm XT1 and a Panasonic GM1.
    I really like both of them but this GR is a great fun !

    Very nice image!

    How did you postprocess this in LR5? Reminds me to a Merrill Foveon file. Could you share the steps you took within LR5?

    Thanks, very kind of you.

    I could tell you that I have used very complicated and tricky techniques to modify the picture but I just played a little with the color levels and the white balance, shadows and highlights.

    Here is the original DNG if you want to play a little with it.

    https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/...20R0001800.dng


    p.s.: yes I felt the same when i look at some of the pictures that this little monster produces, my little ricohmerrill ... if they only could put a 35/40mm FF equiv. 2.0 I would stop to buy cameras for ages ...

    Re: FUN with Ricoh GR!!!

    Last time I was in this forum, I had just gotten the GRD-2! I see the names of many old forum friends here still.

    Apart from the GR, another new member of our family. This one's for Maggie O.
