  • These excellent images bring back fond memories to me! In my childhood (and sporadically after that) I visited the island of Tenerife multiple times, as my grandparents had emigrated there. I have ...
  • Fair point. But (more than) an extra stop of light-sensitivity is always welcome, to keep the ISO down. I wouldn't expect miracles in terms of DOF, though, given the small sensor size. Regards, Mischa
  • A very good idea! I'd certainly buy such a camera if it was f/1.4 or even f/1.2. Although I agree with you that it probably will never happen... Regards, Mischa
  • I'd definitely say: go for it! I have one and - as I'm sure you already know - the IQ is just unbelievably fantastic. The quirks are not that many. I actually think that the handling is rather ...
  • The #1 reason why I choose the GRD IV over the GR: its excellent macro capabilities. Lovely shot! Regards, Mischa
  • I just happened to notice the word 'viewfinder' in your post. Do you mean that you use one of the EVF's for the XZ-1? I own an XZ-1 and have been using the VF-3 for a while. I found the image in ...
  • Sorry to hear that, Jack. So now it's a matter of finding the longest lasting aaa-batteries... Regards, Mischa
  • I regularly have power issues with my GRD IV. If I have removed the battery (for charging) and just put it back, it sometimes won't power up. Taking it out again, putting it in again and ...
  • Regards, Mischa
  • Thank you all for sharing your thoughts, ideas and suggestions! All very helpful. Regards, Mischa
  • Created discussions DP2M autofocus problem
    Hi, Since last week, I've been using a VF21 viewfinder on my DP2M and have been experimenting a lot with it. I could not have imagined before how fun this actually is! It's really kind of 'back to ...
  • I recently bought a DP2M, having used the original DP1 and DP2 for years. To me, the speed in SPP is still fine (ish:) ), even though I have a computer that's a few years old (2 core CPU, 4 Gb of ...
  • Created discussions DP2M Night Shot
    Hi, After looking for a new camera for quite a while, I picked up a DP2M for a good price this week. As usual when I have a new camera, the weather is very bad:). Rain and fog all over the place. ...
  • I've been following this thread for a while, and I just want to say that your style of providing criticism really differs from the typical 'internet forum bashing' style. You phrase your criticism ...
  • That's strange, in my opinion. I was always thinking that the ND-filter would work in all modes. I'm always using aperture priority mode. So that means I never get the ND-filter in action? I ...
  • From the manual: "f/1.9 – f/9 (ND filter used for apertures of f/8.0 – f/11 in auto shooting mode)" The Ricoh website mentions: "F1.9 – F9 (exposure control with both aperture and ND filter when ...
  • Replied in French Cafe
    Bon appétit! Nice image! Regards, Mischa
  • Created discussions Key image: GRD IV
    I love the bleach bypass setting of the GRD IV when shooting metal objects! Keys Regards, Mischa
  • On my bike this morning, I saw this scene. Captured by the GRD IV (and only later I realized that I also has my Sigma DP1 with me;) - I'm curious as to how the scene would have looked with it). Reg ...
  • That last one works perfectly! Finally a good example of a situation (or: 2 situations:) ) where the multiple exposure really pays off! Regards, Mischa
