    After importing and cropping I took both images into Nik ColorEffex where I have a recipe I created and used it with both. I think the variation may be due to the cloud cover over the sun which was behind and which changed between both shots. I hope that helps.

    Re: Fun with the Ricoh GR III

    Bee on winter flowering honeysuckle - the weather in the UK continues to be unusual for the season. This plant was full of bees, all covered with pollen and with big nectar baskets on their legs. Very pleasing to see, given the issues with the falling size of the bee population. GRIII in macro mode.

    In this review there are some nice examples of the highlight-weighted metering mode. Look for the images with very black shadows. I think you should use it when there is a lot of sunlight and shadows involved especially in streetscenes.

    Thank you Thorkil! You must be about the only one who is still looking in this thread.
    It sure is a little powerhouse and pushes me to snap around, where I otherwise probably would pass by.
    Couldn´t do as much as I wanted yet because the rain is pouring down for weeks now.

    Not really. I don't post here because I don't have a GR (I have a Fuji XF10), but I love the images. Having a true pocket camera is really nice. The trick I found is to treat it like a real camera and take the time to think about how and what you are photographing.

    Yes Michiel, but I do think too like Will, there are a lot more people looking here than expected , the GR are doing things like a much bigger and more expensive camera..things are coming to us in waves, I might get back to it in some time too...

    Sorry sir, I underestimated the attention to this thread. I thought it turned into an odd corner of the forum. The other day I said to my wife; I am going out to take some pictures and she said; where is your camera? I said; in my pocket

    I am trying to threat it like a real camera but I just draw the camera a bit sooner out of my pocket then out of my camera bag.
    I actually bought the camera for a trip to Milano and Torino with a friend but we had to cancel it because of the outbreak of the Corona virus in Northern Italy.

    No photo for the moment because Flickr is out at the moment.

    I can't be the only one who always has the What's New screen up. I see all posts in all fora as they appear. I usually don't even notice which thread. I'm certainly not here to consider YACS (Yet Another Camera System). Oh no. (And they say Dante lives in Medium Format....)

    Re: Fun with the Ricoh GR III

    As far as I am concerned the GRIII is a professional camera. I use it for both pleasure and business. When I am working I tend to carry it in my pocket as a sort-of 'sidearm'. You never know when your main 'weapon' is going to jam. I often use it for pro-type work but of course I don't rely solely on it because it has only one card slot (not that I am complaining). But a few times when I've thought a 28mm fov is needed but I don't have time or it is not convenient to change lenses on my main camera I have whipped out the GRIII and photographed events with it. Works fine. As I have mentioned in this thread before, I call it 'the camera I like to carry when I don't want to carry a camera'.

    Here are a few captures taken on my many walks when the camera has come with me.

    Tjeez the first time I use this. I must be out of this world. I always used New Posts directly underneath What's New. I must have a phobia for capital letters.

    Have been looking at your pictures all the time Louis! Very nice. The camera is a little marvel in deed.
    What area of London is your fourth picture? Looks like a very interesting area in transition. Those are the places I like.

    Dear Michiel

    The fourth photograph was taken at the Regents Canal (under a railway bridge from St Pancras International) and looking towards the gleaming new towers of the Kings Cross Redevelopment in central London. Well worth a visit if you are ever in London and there is always an open invitation to members of GetDPI to meet up somewhere interesting, like this in London, for some photography together.

    I've been thinking about upgrading to the GRIII, and between in-body IS and the photos in this thread, I think I'm going to have to do it.

    When I was in Cuba, my M9-P and GRII made for the perfect pair.

    Thank you Thorkil. The camera does look harmless in deed, . Yes snapfocus in this case. Outside I used on screen focus as well, quiet nice.

    And a few cramped dusty rooms with unheard of artists’ works such
    as Rembrandt and Vermeer... never had heard of them.

    Dull, boring buildings. And canals! In 2020!
    Kid u not. And bicycles...

    Yes it is a big bore isn't it. Must be the reason that there are about twice as many tourists as inhabitants. Although Corona brought some quietness.

    Time for some building and rebuilding. BTW It always rains in Amsterdam.

    Still no total lockdown here in the Netherlands. I can still photograph and luckely the places I go are of no interest for anybody, so we all can stay safe.

    Apparently, Amsterdam has a large, but well trained rabbit population...

    But I have seen that building in books. It is rather famous, but I get what or who for.

    There are rabbits in the parks and outskirts but I never see them in center walking down the streets.

    'Imbued with socialist ideals, the Amsterdam School style was often applied to working-class housing estates'

    This is a portal in the same housing block.

    Taken today with the GRIII as I undertook my 'lockdown' exercise. It wasn't my intention to take photographs but I always carry the GRIII when I go out for a walk and I did like this abandoned pram.

    Very nice pictures, thanks for sharing! I do like Amsterdam quite a lot. It really has design in its DNA, not only at a few spots. Very enjoyable.
