  • 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 ...
  • Went riding after work with my new GR and my titanium road bike that I recently finished putting together. Found an abandoned poolhouse. In the middle of this poolhouse, I saw a decapitated bird ...
  • I see you're also a Nikon 1 user.  I love the system.  I was actually on the fence about whether to get a J5, the Ricoh GR, or splurge and get a D750.  I'll be interested in what the V4 has to offer.
  • Well, truth be told, it was in perfect condition until I let my wife use it at the beach one day.  My kids were throwing sand, which got into the lens and caused it to jam. The other problem I had ...
  • Created discussions Back in the Ricoh camp!
    Well, 5 years after my Ricoh GR-D II died, and after a brief foray into Nikon's 1 series, I'm finally back in business with a Ricoh GR. The recent news of the GR II made me feel good about buying ...
  • The biggest ommission in the N1 series for me is flash support. If Nikon only made an adapter for a standard hotshoe, then I could use my entire suite of Speedlights, wireless flash triggers, ...
  • Off-axis flash and ring flash are a major part of my photography as well. Here's what Nikon's omission requires me to do for off camera flash: I've had to rig a flash bracket with my SB-N5 pointed ...
  • I'm still using my V1. I have the following lenses: 10mm f/2.8 18.5mm f/1.8 6.7-13mm Why haven't I upgraded? I've made it my rule since my first DSLR (D100) that I only upgrade when the current ...
  • I still can't believe Nikon hasn't come out with this.  The reason why I never left the Nikon camp is because of their devotion to backwards compatibility (at least compared to Canon or Sony).  ...
  • The dimension of the native sensor could have accommodated a higher resolution crop than it does, at least based on the diagram above.

  • An amazing camera with every function that a photographer needs and more. Yeah, a tilt screen would've been useful, touch screen... etc. Personally, I don't use those, so not a problem for me. ...
