    Yes, yes I did, Don! But I havn't got time to try to learn and exploit it….but I must admit, that I very secretly follow (and admire…) your doings in that area on your homepage and on Flickr, but your homepage is the most interesting while your word is a joy to read. But while you blushes, I also must admit that I havn’t exploit your Inpired Eye volume 2 fully yet, but…patience…that will come, while it’s so well-done…(and other lads and lady’es should be welcome to join the subscription too, I would like to point out)
    but I can see I’ll now have to promise myself, one of these days to lift myself out of the sofa (well not sofa all the time, also suddenly got some work to…and that thing, one can’t complaine about too..), and try to make friends with the GR. And you know, I still got this silly idea to visit all the very old café’s and pubs in the center of Copenhagen before they disappears. That would be a lovely thing to do.

    So this pub and club visiting procedure requires you to drink at every spot...if my mind is half way working.
    By the way, my GR is a female and likes to smell vodka....

    There's a few things different from it's Momma, the GRD4. The focus scale is close to accurate in snap mode.
    The AEL button is great. I have it set to LOCK. So I can hit it and the camera stays at that distance until I hit it again.

    Why is that so cool....Glad ya asked... We may not always want to use the snap distances. Sometimes I want to get in between a set distance....dunno..
    it's logical here in Philly....

    Get off yer lazy a** and post some shots....
    I'll follow you like before....

    Re: The International, Intergalatic Ricoh GR Thread

    thanks Don!!!, it might be the word that encourage me!(and sometimes words can mean more than you would think) (even though the sofa feels so safe)(and time and hours becomes more and more such a funny concept)
    I don't understand fully what you explain!, but I'll try to read the words once more...! (with the GR in my hand)
    By the way, I've decided, although in my next life, to learn something about Light room (and only because of you!).
    Wonderful Picture you post here (even some magic hidden there) (even though I've bee sneaking for a quick preview somewhere else
    Out on the streets with you Don! (and back to the sofa, here...no, no, just some minor work etc.)(if I only could avoid the the-every-day-jump-over-actions I could gain perhaps 2-3 hours per day, and then save them in a account...and then..)
    Well, even I can hear it...no, more talk, some action, but....

    Re: The International, Intergalatic Ricoh GR Thread

    We all must live in the inverse square law...especially in photography.
    I guess that means that the less time you get to make photos, the more satisfaction you will recieve from them.
    I worried for many years about that. I felt that when I retired, I'd have all the time in the world to do just that, make photos. Now it seems that being retired, (Agent Orange's choice for retirement, not mine)....my tremors are getting to the point that I cant steady the camera to well. It's ironic to me and maybe just to me and a few vets for sure.

    So I work feverishly to ward off the inevitable.....
    I did pick up a Nex 6 because of that finder. I hate finders but if things don't go well...I can steady the camera against my face and use that great Nex 6 finder.

    I won't beat the Devil but I'll dang sure give her a run for the money.....
    I'm in town again tomorrow and the GR is with me.....I'll post some stuff....
    later my friend.....don

    Sorry, this one wasn't taken with the GR but the xxxxxness of a few in the other section over a silly camera is getting to be a bit too much for me.

    Look forward to more from you Don!

    ...Don, I'll be waiting
    (and Agent orange or not, you are handling the cameras very well!!(and some shake dosn't matter))(and by the way, from art, one can see, people are sometimes letting things loose, and gather quality, when they are rounding the 60's)
    (And I promise I'll give it a try, to make friends with the GR)

    Some great stuff in here guys - nice work - always loved your work Don

    Here a choice few from the first cull of shots taken on a recent work trip to NYC/Philly - all shot using snap focus and processed in LR and/or Silver Efex.

    Really enjoying the GR.

































    Thanks for looking

    Thorkil, is the high key tone something you added in PP or straight from the camera because the AE locks on to shaded area (the face of the aged gentleman)?

    But in both instances, I like the tonality of the B&W. This is something my little GRDIV would have struggled at.

    Just converted in C1 7.1.3 (64 bit). Shadows lifted at allmost full 98, contrast at 50, brigthnes turned up a bit, added 21 and 17 for Clarity and structure in Punch Method. It got strong Raw files and C1 is strong in bringing details out of the dark areas.

    (Ps but its hard to judge from the laptop here, where the viewing-angel is rather critical)
    (PPS and all are totally hasty one-hand and loose under-hip-shots while walking, set to snap-focus at 1,5m distance and the ND filter turned on)

    Thanks Thorkil.
    From what I have gathered, the GR raw files are quite resilient for PP work.
    Which gives more latitude to play with the files.

    Re: The International, Intergalatic Ricoh GR Thread

    I just received my GR from B&H on July 12 (preordered on April 30). I have wanted a truly pocketable camera with good IQ for a long time now (fits comfortably in my shirt pocket). This is my first Ricoh and it appears that Pentax-Ricoh got some serious shooter input with respect to the user interface . I've played with mine for two days now and am completely comfortable with the user interface. Image quality is very good as long as I do my part. When I received the camera, I was not able to program the ADJ/ISO control, turned out that the mode dial was set, as factory default, to full auto (Green Box) and it's not programmable in that mode. Placed the mode dial in Tv and Bob's your uncle. Lightroom IV recognizes the camera's DNG raw files. I especially like the snap mode.

    Re: The International, Intergalatic Ricoh GR Thread

    This month I have bought a Nikon 1 V1 with two zooms and the Canon EOS-M with 22mm prime - - all new and for less money than my Ricoh GR, which has just arrived (took Henry's in Canada 3 months to get it). I think there is a story there somewhere.

    Anyway, I'm glad Ricoh made it a K-5lls in sheep's clothing

    ...(very nice!) welcome to the Club Keith, (and Maggie)...allthough its calling for very different things...it's calling. Dont know the small Nikons nor Canons, but having all buttoms in reach of your right thumb (while putting glasses on with the left), with both ability to sharp, tasty colourful and ...not the least...moving picture in snap-mode and all in that complicated simple way...it's calling upon one in that special M6-way

    Hi Thorkil - I didn't make my point very well. I was somewhat gob smacked being able to pick up mirrorless cams from Canon and Nikon at 70% off initial list price. Comparing that against the GR which has so much demand that it takes 3 months to get to Canada. I don't think somehow we will see the GR discounted to those levels in it's lifetime.
    After using the two big brands I can see why people are not so taken with them - against the Ricoh user interface the V1 and the EOS are pitiful.
    The surprise for me is the Nikon V1 image quality, which for a 1inch sensor is remarkable.
    I kept my GRDlV as my bigest adjustment is the depth of field difference to the GR - I think I'm more comfortable with the small sensor, but time will tell.
    Meanwhile I'm experimenting using Don's presets for landscapes . . .

    Re: The International, Intergalatic Ricoh GR Thread

    Hi Keith....ha, ha....all those lovely cameras....
    nice Picture!
    I still have this silly idea, that we all ought to make a Worldwide Club "One man...one camera" and a membership wasn't a voluntary thing, you should be born into it, born or not.
    and we had to sell all the others (but who would buy while they all were in the same Club)
    But I think it would be the GR while its able for me to use both at work and in sparetime (just have to have that 21mm adapter then), perhaps we could be just as happy and perhaps we would be taking a lot more Pictures just as we did when we started as youngsters, with one camera and one lens, or what?...while it would sort of push us to the edge, and we would be forced to master this solely tool
    (meanwhile I bought a K30, then a K5II (there was 3 days of delivery-time on the K5IIs..thats how impatiently I can be) and then the GXR A16 module, and now thinking of a Nikon D600 + the 14-24 once more + a Sigma 35/1.4......please... would someone please get that Club started as soon as possible.....
    Don't know if I ever will use the IV any more, but I keep it, together with the analog stuff that I wouldn't ever use either...

    would like to use Don's presets to, but I gave up on Lightroom while it took more than 30 min. to figure it out, and I didn't (and Don need the support right now I think.....by the way..you all have to try his "Inspired eye" for a Whole year to support him!, it does only cost 19.95 $.....and its very, very, very good indeed)

    Re: The International, Intergalatic Ricoh GR Thread

    ps, Keith...yes, you will keep the IV....but it will be the GR you'll be using (I guess because the files are extra powerfull and there are another aura around it, not as simple and lovely man-gun-way (allthough complicated), but perhaps this was too primitive anyway, first you have been using the GR. The GR is more sophisticated and "up to the modern task" (which in my view isn't a compliment, but you will get used to this...perhaps more man-cat-way than man-dog-way, so in the mental area the GR will reach the IV by 90% in this frienly-connection mind-hand-camera department)

    Re: The International, Intergalatic Ricoh GR Thread

    I think that your early shots with your GRIV were unique to that camera, Thorkil, and they inspired me to explore that direction. This one is from the GR and although I would say it is a GRlV "style" of image, I could only do it with the GR because of depth of focus.
    Glad you got the A16 - I love that camera. With each module the GXR becomes a different camera.
    That club of yours will never exist. Get ready for the next GXR, which I bet will be here soon.
    Fun to be a photographer these days!

    Re: The International, Intergalatic Ricoh GR Thread

    ... yes that GRDIV could do something (and thank you!) when bringing it out on the outmost edge in the dark side of the twilight. That, one can't do in the same way with the GR and the look is different....
    hhmm...yes, better keep the IV.
    Only took 2 pictures in san zeno with the A16, but will take a look at them.
    Very nice Picture, and different from the look from the IV, shallow dof or not, but different in a nice way (perhaps more refined?)
