  • You are right to some degree, but in an age where most companies are stuffing a camera with every conceivable tech part of the GRs appeal is that this is not the case.  The features added tend to ...
  • Yep, you are right the GR has such a strong identity it stands alone and you might risk diluting it by trying to turn it into a system. You'd have to be diligent to keep each piece in character. St ...
  • This is a great idea, the combination of 2 cameras, 2 shareable lens convertors, and the crop modes would give a comprehensive system and still be distinctly GR ish.
  • I guess the system was too confusing for enough comentators to get that point. I think on initial release it was talked up in the wrong direction, as an ILC, and never recovered from those shrugs ...
  • Replied in Well well well
    They should come up with a small tiltable clip on screen with clip on hood, and then everybody would be happy :-)
  • For me it would be a 30mm-60mm equivalent no nonsense zoom. Same sort of philosophy as the Pentax-DA 20-40mm. Skipping the wider end and keeping it short would make the lens ...
  • Created discussions GR II and future cam
    Hi, It looks highly likely we will have a new GR in the next month or two. Posting wishes and hopes for this cam is fun, but obviously will have no actual impact on what this camera actually delivers.
  • Replied in Please a 35mm
    I think a GR zoom is more likely than a change of focal length :-)  And even that ain't going to happen! Mind you though I think Ricoh are missing a trick by not capitalising on the strong GR brand ...
  • I expect: 24 APS-C sensor better AF with newly designed lens, with the elements that move being smaller so the AF can move faster no stabilization I hope for: weather and dust sealing f2.0 lens, we ...
  • I think you've pretty much nailed most of the expected changes in your earlier post.  But I think we might also see some new clever tech to improve picture quality or give "nice to have but not ...
  • Yep, that would do for me as well :-)   wonder how many more threads we'll get about this :-)
  • Created discussions Well well well
    http://www.mirrorlessrumors.com/ricoh-grii-is-coming-soon maybe it is June/July after all
  • Hi, great shots again.  Particularly like the first one, has a proper 'moment' feel.  Was it shot with the FA77 as well?  I'm guessing but were 1 & 2 shot with the FA77 and 3 & 4 the GR? On the ...
  • I really really like these, and can relate to taking pictures of light.  I like your idea of looking for interesting light and then finding a composition.  Too often for me its narrowing down on ...
  • Replied in May-June 2015?
    I do not think any previous patterns need apply at all and any manufactuer could release at any time they choose, but if you are playing a pattern game I 'd say it was likely that, as Ocolon ...
  • Hi, my guess is you're shooting just raw?  In which case the pixellated image you're seeing is the small one it embeds within the raw.  You will need to shoot raw+jpg to be able to review on the ...
  • Nice article.  I prefer Ricoh's take on sensor shifting over Olympus's.  For me true colour is a better use of the tech than extra high rez.  Though I expect both companies could do both.  Also ...
  • Yep, decent sealing would be the big one on my list. Do we know this is not going to happen? Pentax have always been good with this.
  • Yep, this pretty much sums up my position too.  If it does come to pass and the new cam is more than just a Pentax makeover and has a must have (to me) feature I'll pick up the new one, if not ...
  • If there were a name change I wonder if it would be to 'Pentax GR'.  Pentax has nearly always been a brand name in much the same way as Lumix or EOS.  It would end the confusion of which cameras ...
