    Daar heb je geen Corona-crisis voor nodig, Michiel.
    Hier de Kalverstraat op een zondagochtend in augustus 2019 en bijna geen "kip" te zien ...

    I ran Bart's comments through a online Dutch to English translation yesterday. I could be mistaken, but it seems that something has been lost in the translation.

    "You don't need a Corona crisis for that, Michiel. Here the Kalverstraat on a Sunday morning in August 2019 and almost no "chicken" can be seen".

    According to this site it's even a "kip in blik"

    Btw, the term is only (mainly) used in Amsterdam, but since I was born there I knew where to look for the kip

    Re: Fun with the Ricoh GR III

    I don’t see either a live chicken, dead chicken or “kip in blik” (canned chicken, per the Dutch to English translation I used).

    Maybe I need a bigger/better monitor, I’m going blind or I don’t know what a Amsterdam chicken looks like.

    I think that “kip in blik” (canned chicken) is slang for a policeman in a (police)car.

    In that case, I’m really stumped and have to give up looking.

    Proving Michiel is right...”The poor people who have to speak English don't understand a thing of this.”

    It's not all that bad, they're just 'silly' nicknames (slang) for the police.
    I'll bet in your neck of the woods there are also one or two in use that the poor people who have to speak Dutch don't understand a thing of ...

    Re: Fun with the Ricoh GR III

    Promotional video from Ricoh with the design engineers who created the GRIII.

    Interesting information on the design ethic and decisions.

    Re: Fun with the Ricoh GR III

    Technically it's the wrong thread, as this is a Ricoh GR picture, but I thought I'd share it here in any case. I did own almost all the Ricoh GR cameras, and now also have the newest version. They are, together with the Fuji X100 series, the finest pocket cameras in my opinion. There is an ongoing battle between the X100 and the GR series, and possibly the solution is to own them both. In the end, it's like the film GR and Hexar. Almost similar in terms of lenses (28mm vs 35mm), the Hexar being a little larger but nicer to carry with a strap, the GR being better suited to fit into the pocket.

    This picture is taken with the Ricoh GR.

    Re: Fun with the Ricoh GR III

    I posted the photograph of this beautiful motorbike taken with my Fuji GFX50R in the appropriate thread but here is the version I took with the GRIII. The detail is amazing. If you go through to Flickr you can see the full sized jpeg and also see the full sized version with the GFX50R if you want to do a comparison.

    That is a beautiful photograph. If the new Fuji 100? has a 28mm lens I might consider it. I think 28mm makes much more sense for a pocket camera.
