  • Not sure there is much difference in most people minds so I took the opportunity to slag off all the stuff I don't want. Because we all know at heart that this going to become a free for all bit ...
  • Replied in Well well well
    I hope not. Just about the last thing any stealth camera needs. I hope they get rid of the green pentax bling buttons. And any unnecessary bits of red or green paint. I hope it has a more rubbery grip.
  • Replied in Well well well
    ? It's clear that the so-called 'V' is really called a 'GR'. Many fans had too much difficulty distinguishing the GR series from the original GRD series, so some decided that the GR was a kind of GRDV.
  • All unsubstantiated rumour from back in February.
  • Replied in GR II coming !
    Harold, the 'rumours' link on that site url takes us back in time to Feb 2015. 'One of the rumored possibility is a Ricoh GR replacement:' followed with the list of features posted above. http://ph ...
  • Replied in GR II coming !
    Rumoured enhancements or wishlists? Seems like the only facts are: New GR. It's been referred to as a 'II'.
  • iqbalnata. I get you. I can see that. These are more carefully composed, considered etc. Maybe it's just my taste but the earlier set feel more dream-like, moody, more open to my imagination. ...
  • @BJL . Assuming it is a joke, it was still apposite to say that dpr's main thoughts lie with industry and not with privacy, even in the event of making a putative joke.

  • Sorry to be blunt but I can only give you my gut reaction. I've seen your gallery and feel that presently your day-light photography is more interesting to my eye. I don't get a sense that you ...
  • Can I say? - it looks like you have put a lot of thought and effort into these, but I do prefer your previous group.
  • @darngooddesign

    Oh come on. If it's a joke it's as lame as they come. They clearly need to flag their jokes, if this is really the case. But when have dpreview ever been known to joke about...

  • 'If successful the algorithm may have serious consequences for the flexible rubber lens hood market, though early indications suggest polarizing filter manufacturers will be safe for some time to...

  • Dan. You have an idea. I like that. I like the awkwardness. I like the atmosphere. Good luck with the work!
  • My cactuses and succulents are an underrepresented community. I'm going to apply.

  • Nice - you have an interesting environment. Likewise to Rube, I like 1+4. The middle two with their densely pack information and predominance of mid-to-dark tones I find less interesting - e.g. ...
  • Thanks for the info. It's interesting to me because a lot of shots I take on holiday with my GRD I have a muted tonality. I could brighten them but I often choose not to because I like it. Anyway ...
  • I'm not sure that it's the only appeal. And also I'm not saying anything about it. I just wanted to know whether it is deliberate.
  • @Androole

    Good point. Focus-by-wire is just horrible. To be honest I'd rather use AF than focus-by-wire.

  • I like them! Nice work. Individual. btw. They are a bit tonally muted - is that intentional? Part of the atmosphere?
  • best thing I've seen on dpreview for years.
