  • Yes, I found that frustrating.  The manual lists the settings that do not apply to RAW, but the list doesn't include NR.  But I don't I know of any cameras that apply user selectable NR to a RAW file.
  • Thanks Gerd. A few more questions. Are those samples OOC jpegs? If so, how high did you have NR set? I assume that the NR settings don't affect RAW? I mostly shoot RAW but maybe I'll rely on the ...
  • Yes, I'm allowing for that when observing the differences.  Just curious to see if GR high ISO noise is typical of what other users notice? Sal
  • Created discussions GR and high ISO noise
    I still love my new GR, but concerned about noise in RAW files at ISO800 and above. I'm just checking to make sure this is normal for the camera. Comparing to my Fuji X-E2, ISO 800 on the GR has ...
  • I can't answer the first question scientifically, but on my 4-year old Mac Pro with 12GB of RAM all of the programs run well with no major CPU slowdowns. LR and C1 have library/archiving systems on ...
  • I've been fortunate since my switch from Canon (30-years) to Fuji. My kit zoom and 3 Fuji primes have all been little gems so far. The biggest reason I left Canon was my growing disappointment in ...
  • I have most all of the major converters. For maximum IQ I prefer Iridient. The other converters rely on implementations of basic USM for sharpening. Iridient has USM, but it also has sophisticated ...
  • Oh Lena, you are in so much trouble! :) When I ever see dust I'll use my SonicAir toothbrush, as my friend (wife) would never admit to the alternative device. Sal
  • I just bought the Lowepro Newport 30 soft case.  The size is perfect, leaving just enough room for the wrist strap inside.  It also has a zippered compartment that will hold a couple of batteries ...
  • Another option...I wanted to stay with an APS-C sensor, a sharp prime and a slimmer more pocketable size than the RX-100.  I bought a Ricoh GR that travels in my pocket when using my X-E2 and Fuji ...
  • Since "true pocket-ability" keeps coming up in this thread I thought this might help. If you want to keep the same APS-C 16mp, no-AA filter and same stellar prime lens image quality and sharpness ...
  • Agreed, and it has a WhiteMagic rear LCD that's brilliantly bright in daylight.  IQ is easily on a par with my Fuji gear below ISO 3200. Sal
  • It's an amazing lens.  I'm taking it, my 23mm and the 18mm on my GR to Italy for 2 weeks in August.  Can't wait! I'm stocking up on 32GB cards and more extra batteries a little every month so the ...
  • Very similar to my experience going back and forth to my X-E2 and 14mm prime.  Lot's of manual controls vs. almost none.  But I do love the way Ricoh executed the difference. Sal
  • I just received my new GR a few weeks ago and it needed the FW update.  I had to wait for B&H to get in new stock so the camera must be "fresh." Sal
  • I had the same desire recently to get a smaller, jeans-pocketable camera, but with APS-C sensor and a brilliant sharp prime. I bought a Ricoh GR, it's an amazing camera. The ability to select ...
  • Hi Dave, I've found that converters make a difference with all of my cameras. Iridient does a great job with my Fuji files, but it also resolves more detail in my 5DII CR2 files than when I was ...
  • Be sure to get a Fuji model that has wifi. It's great fun to use the smart phone remote control on the street or in a subway. I use a tight shoulder strap with my X-E2 and 14mm prime. In my other ...
  • I like the implementation in the GR. Every button on the camera can be customized. One configuration sets the camera up to perform normal AF when the shutter button is half pressed, but snaps to ...
  • What is the difficulty you experience with RAW?  I process the Fuji RAW files just like my other cameras. Sal
