    Ricoh GXR - Show your images

    I've posted a few images from this camera in the compact camera section, but maybe this place is better

    This is with the P10 module

    Did you purchase your GXR in Canada?
    I've been very curious about this camera, but nothing locally....
    Thank you in advance, and please keep posting.

    Hi arashm
    I buy all of my Ricoh stuff from the US, usually Popflash Photo in California. I have bought many Ricoh cameras from them.
    I have the P10 and the A12 modules for the GXR, which is a fine camera

    Keith

    Here is another from the P10

    Re: Ricoh GXR - Show your images

    Here are a couple from the P10 lensor.

    I like the P10 a lot, and reviewers have rated it higher than the canon G10 in performance. The GXR/P10 is lighter and smaller than the G10 - and it has an EVF

    Keith:

    Is the GXR stabilized???

    Great images. It certainly seems like the concept of a matched lens, and sensor works.

    The stabilization is in the lensor module, and not in the body of the camera. The P10 small sensor zoom (28-300) has it, but the A12 50mm APS-C macro does not

    Great image!!!!

    Does the lack of image stabilization in the 50 mm macro cause any problems for you in low light???

    Also, has the firmware upgrade really improved the focussing speed especially in low light???

    How do you feel the GXR compares with the specifications of the upcoming Fuji X100??? I realize that it is a difficult question since 1) the Fuji isn't out yet, and 2) fixed lens vs. interchangeable lens-sensor units.

    Thanks Martin

    The firmware upgrade made the 50mm much faster and useable - I would like stabilization but I have other cameras that don't have it, so I am used to shooting without. Same with any macro, you have to be careful to get good images. In non macro mode the 50mm is just fine.

    I am very intrigued by the X100, but I am put off by the fixed lens. The GXR lens/sensor idea is now getting more nods of approval from the reviewers. It is widely thought that Ricoh will "tune" the sensor of the M-mount module to work well with M lenses.

    I really like the fact that I can put on a P10 module, and I have essentially have a Canon G10. But if I change to the 28mm or 50mm primes, I am in Leica territory. With the M-mount module I have dozens of legacy lenses I can use.

    The body and firmware of the GXR is top class, probably the best you will find anywhere - I think this camera will eventually become a classic.

    A good review is here: http://www.stevehuffphoto.com/2010/1...-50mm-modules/

    I am close to pulling the trigger on the GXR with the A12 28mm module. Has anyone tried it yet? Or am I going to be forum's the crash test dummy?

    Xavi99, love this b & w, suits the subject perfectly. Very nice

    tokengirl, I'm still waiting for a 28mm to become available. Don't seem to be many in the UK yet, so yes, would be great if you "guineapigged" it!

    Show Performance, thank you very much for your comments. I like to be quite close to the things I photograph

    Ricoh GXR with A12 50mm Macro

    Handheld at 1/30 sec, F5.6, ISO 800. Looks like focus is on the hairs just to the left of the butterfly's body

    Woodmancy, beautiful picture! It does appear that the focus is more to the left. I've found it quite difficult to pinpoint focus for macro as the focus area is still fairly large and if using a narrow dof, it's rather hit and miss!

    Very nice. The quality of the SOOC B&W jpegs from this camera was really the first thing that got my attention. Amazon had the 28mm module in stock as of yesterday, mine is arriving tomorrow. Can't wait.

    Well, it's here. First quick photo after charging the battery:



    Wide open at ISO 1600. B&W conversion in Silver Efex Pro.

    Jasmine likes it, says we can keep it (if I give her an extra biscuit).

    Re: Ricoh GXR - Show your images

    After shooting with this camera for a week, I have to say it easily betters my faithful (and now sadly sitting on the shelf) X1.....

    Lightroom produces just ok raw conversion. The new Silkypix beta 5 is just excellent. These are all with the 28mm AP-C sensor.

    A few more are at my website.

    Re: Ricoh GXR - Show your images

    I am really liking this camera. It's pretty much exactly what I was looking for: a digital version of my Fuji Klasse W.












    The 28mm lens is nice and sharp, has a pleasing bokeh, and has only minor chromatic aberration that is easily corrected in Lightroom. The camera does not shoot in RAW only, so you get a RAW file and corresponding JPEG. I am using is set in B&W mode so that I get a B&W preview. The B&W JPEG sooc is not bad, but it's a little flat for my taste and applies too much noise reduction even when you have noise reduction turned off. But the RAW file can take quite a bit of pushing around in Lightroom/Silver Efex Pro.

    The screen is almost useless in bright sunlight. I was thinking of getting a CV 28mm viewfinder to put in the hot shoe, but the hot shoe is not centered over the lens so that's probably not going to work too well. I am not yet frustrated enough to spend $250 for Ricoh's EVF though.

    I haven't really been impressed with the colors from this camera, but then again I have not really made much effort. I bought the camera to make B&W pictures of whatever I happen to stumble upon without feeling guilty about wasting film, and so far I am not disappointed at all.

    OOC B/W -- initial test of a little tree in the back yard. I'm really loving this camera. I feel I could do all of my general photography with it, but I am a little hesitant on the $250 EVF... I also really wish there was a portrait lens option. I'm thinking of adding a compact Pentax and 70mm f2.4 to fill that gap.

    Here are two from this weekend in Kyoto (both with the A12/50mm module).

    This is my first attempt to post an image here, so apologies in advance if I get it wrong.

    Recently Ricoh gave me another opportunity to try the GXR with both the 50mm and the new 28mm lens. While I consider the 50mm both a hit and miss, I really was amazed by the 28mm lens.

    It actually works really well for anything from 2 meters and beyond. Great combination for street photography in my opinion.

    Re: Ricoh GXR - Show your images

    New firmware for GXR

    Available 28 March

    Enhanced Functions for All Camera Units

    Addition of the “Scene Mode” for photographic expression with a difference
    The addition of the new “Scene Mode” provides 5 types of mode to expand your photographic expression. Choose from “Soft Focus”, “Cross Process”, “Toy Camera”, “Miniaturize”, and “High Contrast Monochrome”. Simply press the shutter release to take a truly unique shot.
    Addition of “Target Follow Function” to AE/AF target movement function
    The “Target follow function” is added to the target movement function that locks the exposure or focus on a specific part of the photographic subject. When the camera follows the subject, this function automatically continues to adjust to the target position, so that the subject is in focus at precisely the moment you want to shoot.
    “Reset/Cancel” function added for AE/AF target move
    By pressing the cancel button during AE/AF target move, the image monitor returns to the central position. When the cancel button is pressed again, the target move mode is cancelled.
    “Magnified playback function” added that magnifies the center of the target moved position
    When magnifying the playback screen, the center of the position moved to as the AE/AF target can be the center of the magnification

    Enhanced function only for the GR LENS A12 28mm/GR LENS A12 50mm camera unit

    Exposure correction and white balance can be assigned to the zoom button.
    In the key custom settings, exposure correction or white balance functions can be assigned to the zoom button.

    Re: Ricoh GXR - Show your images

    Not the best image, in fact,, one that dismayed me. Nice blue in the hangings, right? The only problem is that they're a nice purple in real life. Any suggestions?

    It was taken about 9 AM with the 28mm at 1/30 and f2.5. Auto ISO was 1131. I've been in the process of choosing my preferred settings and am not sure of them, but this may have been with Autio WB. Windows are plain, translucent glass.

    a900 colors had come out right when I was using it for a similar shot last year.

    (Other than that, I've been enjoying my new GXR + 28 + 50 very much and will post something nicer soon.)

    Thanks,

    Ouch!!

    Are you using the new v1.36 firmware, and using the cross-processing option in scene mode by mistake ? (I'm serious)
    Otherwise, it has to be something to do with your white balance settings
    Nice if you could get another try at it.

    Keith,

    You done it to me ... After you suggested it, I studied up and bought one. And it is a great little camera. Whomever did the controls design and ergonomics deserves an award: this camera's controls are shockingly usable for such a small camera, and the way they interact in use is just amazing.

    For the moment, I got just the body, A12-28 and GV-2 optical finder.

    Oh, pix ... just a few so far:


















    Still learning the camera ... :-)

    Thanks for your "help" ... I'll want/need a second battery, the EVF and the upcoming M lens camera module, I'm sure. And a lens or two. Probably the A12-50 camera module too. Sigh.
