  • Without knowing for sure I believe it have as it was one of the early large-sensor compact cameras as far as I remember. Having read probably not all but some and certainly the conclusion page of ...
  • Yes. I knew about the potential moire-issue since before as old dslrs like the 6mp Nikon D70 could have problem with moire due to a thin AA filter. The somewhat older Nikon D100 which had an other ...
  • Wow. Nice catch there. Using AA these days is not making much good sense. Not for the details in the captured images or the manufacturer which stand behind the camera either. None of the latest ...
  • Indeed and it looks even better in full-size compared to the smaller in the forum. In full size I noticed slight blown white highlights in the clouds possibly also in the extreme yellow in the ...
  • Well. I expressed my slight disappointment over that the large fast lens on the Leica X. I know that it not is intended for such a use and in general not many other large-sensor compacts either....

  • Replied in X2 Firmware?
    Maybe this update might be coming for the X2 at some stage, if the Leica X-E gets the improvements of auto-iso etc as the X Vario. Then it would probably be easy make an update for X2 as well ...
  • When I talked about pocketable I of course meant it as the way to carry the camera around when not in actual use. Having it in the frontpockets on trousers makes it possible to pull it up quickly...

  • Cool, Leica X but unfortunately that lens is just too large to make the camera pocketable.
    What is it with the Leica X-E that might make a real diference to the X2 ?
    Quite likely it is the same 16...

  • Replied in Ricoh WG-M1
    One can wonder however Ricoh is behind the making of this camera or if it is one of these Sanyo-produced for Pentax. Sanyo made not quite all but some of the compacts in the Ricoh Caplio RR-series ...
  • Replied in Ricoh WG-M1
    Somewhat weird design but might actually be good. Basically use it at waist level. 1/2.3" sensor. Should have been 1/1.7" and hopefully they can at least use their own UI instead of something from ...
  • Replied in Another try
    That one for the GX100 wont work because ribbon-cable at the bottom connects vertically from the left in the GRDI.
  • What mistake using the same already aged zoom for a third time. They better have a decent 1" sensor and an optically great zoomlens coming for the X40 next year. Needs to be wider than 28mm of ...
  • Looks like another, stylish, Pentax Dslr to me. Hopefully better than the awful looking Pentax K-01 which not even had good ergonomics from what I've heard in the Pentax Dslr-talk. I doubt that ...
  • GRDI http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Ricoh-GR-Digital-Camera-Black-PLEASE-NOTE-UPDATE-/301277947531?pt=UK_CamerasPhoto_DigitalCameras_DigitalCameras_JN&hash=item462590a68b Ricoh Caplio R3 and R40. R40 ...
  • A small Comparison with the Contax TVSD and Ricoh GX here. I used the wide-angle trick with the Contax. One Can pull the utter lens barrel forward about 2mm to get a little bit wider angle. Not ...
  • Yes I'll only test the Tiff for special images. For this day's walk I'll take three cameras with me. Contax TVS Digital, Ricoh Caplio GX and the Ricoh Caplio R3. The R3 is great for Tele when ...
  • Yes the GX AF is better, more reliable after I updated it form 1.02 or 1.03 to 1.07. I've not used Tiff yet but are probably gonna test it with some real picture. About 12 secs to save a Tiff-file ...
  • I've begun to wonder however dust issues and Wobbling lens/zoom-barrels partly could be a result of weak dust-sealings. Tighter dust-sealing which might result in less Wobble should result in ...
  • Surely QC need to be improved although I think it was better for the GRD series than for their GX and R/CX compact cameras. GX100 for example seemed to have a lot of QC problem as some samples ...
  • Finally a working GX 5mp here. Arrived late last week. Below is two pictures which I took with it from a first walk. It still had firmware 1.02 or 1.03 when I got it and I used it with that ...
