  • If you think of cameras in terms of image quality (i.e., mainly sensor size) to camera size ratio, the Ricoh GR and GRII have little competition. I've owned the Ricoh GRD, GRDII, and the GR. ...

  • When you've got VR, you no longer need a fast lens.  Didn't you know that VR has made shutter speed irrelevant?
  • Personally, I don't care as much about climate change as I do about the more tangible, immediate reality of pollution on what I drink or what I eat. Throughout history, the world has experienced...

  • The only other types of bags that I consider tactical are the sling type bags with side entry access. However, most of those bags are strapped for the wrong shoulder IMHO. There should be an...

  • That's another thing. Tactical means stealth. Why not use the subdued logo style of the "Stealth" series of bags?

  • Having climbed up the sides of ships during small boat transfers with my photography gear, I'd say these are no more tactical than any other backpack style camera bag. Points for the Molle straps,...

  • Saying snap focusing is overrated is like saying manual exposure mode is overrated--I'm getting overexposed photos in manual mode! Snap focus is hyperfocal distance focusing. You move backward or ...
  • Unfortunately, as a new GR owner, but a long time user of the GR digital series of cameras, I'm seeing this as well in some of my photos, more so than in my other body, a Nikon V1.  I still love ...
  • EVF's are overrated, personally, but when it can be implemented in the way it was with the V1, where it barely added any bulk, then why not have one! I agree that the V1 was a great camera.  I ...
  • Coincidentally, there is a camera with a leaf shutter design that uses a fixed focal length lens (not interchangeable) and I just switched to it from my Nikon V1.  It's the Ricoh GR Digital.  It's ...
  • Thanks for the comment on the composition and the bike. It helps to be in one of the most beautiful areas of the California Coast. You nailed it on the concept I intended for the bike--and, yes, ...
  • I had an idea for a photo of my bike that I tried out on Saturday.  This was a 2.5 second exposure at f/8 and ISO 100 using the GRs ND filter, plus a B+W 8x ND filter, which I held in front of the ...
  • I'll do a tripod test this weekend. According to DXO Mark, the GR lens is sharper with other characteristics roughly similar, however, the Nikkor was tested on a Nikon V1, which is only 10 MP, as ...
  • Thanks! I put it together just in time for the Sea Otter Classics Gran Fondo after my old aluminum Cannondale broke.  I was literally smiling for almost 40 miles of the ride until I hit the big ...
  • Thanks! Great to hear from another cyclist who appreciates the light weight of the Ricoh. Today, I'm planning on riding up to Jack's Peak today (in Monterey, CA). It's got a good 7-8% gradient for ...
  • Thanks!  I love my Nikon V1 and wouldn't have been in the market for a new camera except that the LCD screen is starting to go bad.  I was attaching my V1 to my handlebars and I think the torque ...
