    Re: Fun with the Ricoh GR III

    I have been trying to do something a bit different with the Ricoh GR system (not everyones cup of tea)...
    Owned the GR, GR II and now GR III. I find great joy in using such a well thought out camera system with it's compact form and ease of use very inspirational for creative expression photography.

    thanks Thorkil, glad you enjoy the photos.
    Not a Rubens ha, just walking by a old painting in a Houston museum with some GR magic.

    If you let iso auto adjust how do you apply more/less exposure? I ask as I tend to over expose the meter reading but would want to be not be committed and to expose normally or less sometimes.

    Hi Tony, in M setting (where the ADJ-button is occupied for shutterspeed - else this is used for +/-EV), you just instead turn the outer-ring-wheel at the backside with your thumb, and you see the according +/- EV amount at the buttom at the screen, at the right side, very handy and fast

    Re: Fun with the Ricoh GR III

    Can anyone explain how the GR III image control parameters work? For instance, when selecting one of the effects, eg Standard, Vivid, Positive Film etc and then pressing Fn button you can change various settings such as saturation, sharpness etc. For me, these parameters are only all zero by default for the Standard mode. All the others have one or more parameters set to other than zero. For Positive Film the defaults are

    High/Low Key -1
    Contrast +3
    Contrast (highlight) -1
    Contrast (shadow) -2

    This seems non-intuitive to me - I'd expect each of these modes to offer different looks starting with all parameters at 0?
    Does it mean that if I zero all of the above for Positive Film, I am back at the same as the 'Standard' effect?

    If the above settings truly are the default for Positive Film and I adjust any of them, I'll never remember how to get back to these defaults!

    For comparison, on the Sigma dp Quattro series, each of the film modes start off with all parameters zeroed even though they offer different looks at those zero settings.

    Re: Fun with the Ricoh GR III

    If I take a DNG file and process it in-camera and select Positive Film and set all the parameters to 0, the resulting image does look different to the Standard mode. Similarly, Vivid, when all parameters are set to 0 does indeed look more saturated than standard.

    By default, Hi Contrast B&W has Grain set to 3 but this parameter was only introduced in firmware 1.2, so I wonder why it would now have a default of 3, whereas prior to 1.2 presumably this value was not set?

    Could it be that in firmware 1.2 they have mistakenly set non-zero parameters as the defaults?

    Or maybe my understanding is just way off? Of course I do not have an earlier GR model to compare the default looks with ...

    I'm at no help here, perhaps Louis?

    Re: Fun with the Ricoh GR III

    Have any of you folk thought of a good small flash for the odd time you want to 'fill' against a backlit shot in the sunshine?

    I'd rely on the ASA and stabilisation for my interior shots but I do like fill for those extra bright days.

    So nothing too big please!

    Re: Fun with the Ricoh GR III

    Is anyone using the highlight-weighted metering mode? I haven't been able to determine when to switch to this setting. For me it's been hit or miss, with mostly miss shots. I'd love to see some examples of images that work well with this setting.

    It's a small world (RX100V). I prefer your composition and the Ricoh's file, though.

    Re: Fun with the Ricoh GR III

    ha-ha, Retow , yes sometimes the world is just small
    I took also your angle, and was about lifting the shadows too, but coming out from the old Castle, where there were an video exhibition with the weird and famous Italian painter Caravaggio (1571-1610), it seemed that I had seen "the light", which mean he operates with hefty darkness and hefty "spotlight" on the figures - I was thinking perhaps we all are trapped by doing a equalizing between shadows and light, so I left the shadows almost alone (just lifted a tiny bit) in honor to Caravaggio.
    So I consider posting weird pictures of weird paintings from a weird artist..
