  • Welcome to the Sony "Nex" forum, Tom.  Having shared your commentary regarding the Ricoh GXR for many months, I have actually missed reading your chatty, but interesting, thoughts (although I ...
  • I am traveling to Alaska for a holiday and am planning on taking my 24-70 Zeiss zoom, a manual focusing 300mm telephoto with a 2x extender for wildlife photograph (along with a tripod), and an ...
  • Where did you find this collar? Was it custom manufactured or is it off the shelf?
  • My lens kit depends on what I expect to shoot. I own many legacy manual primes and only one FE lens--the short Zeiss zoom.  If my subjects are primarily landscape and wildlife photos in bright ...
  • Created discussions Wide angle adapter for GR
    I recently picked up a GW-1 21mm wide angle lens on E-Bay intending to use it with my GR.  After receiving it, I discovered I needed a GH-1 adapter to afix the GW-1 to my camera.  I picked up that ...
  • Created discussions GXR modules
    The inventory sell-off prices for the S10, P10 and A16 (and other GXR modules) are obviously tempting. I originally purchased the GXR with M mount for use with my collection of older Leica lenses; ...
  • This is purely a lazy Sunday question.  I have an A7R.  In view of the sell off prices for the Sigma Merrill, would you buy the DP2 or the FE 35mm?  I'd appreciate your views and arguments.
  • Replied in I wonder
    For me, photography is a medium of artistic expression. I am an artist who paints with oils on canvas and watercolors on paper, sketches and draws, and takes photographs with digital and (very ...
  • I assume that some marketing guys at Ricoh decided that updating the M mount and/or the GXR body would not generate sufficient profits to justify the effort.  Personally, I would have purchased an ...
  • Today, continuing improvement of system products are the norm, preserving consumer's investment in other products purchased to work with the system (e.g. software, printers, monitors, etc.) and ...
  • I second SRoute's comments.  With respect to using the 15mm VC on the GXR M mount, I found that it produces lovely landscapes, but is quite mediocre at close focusing distances. I have thought ...
  • These are terrific. If I didn't see these here I would have mistaken them for watercolors by an accomplished painter. Did you use a specific program to make these?
  • I agree that the Sony A7/a7r  (I own the latter) does not produce satisfactory results with wide rangefinder lenses. The problem with the GXR is that because of the crop factor, my 21mm becomes 30 ...
  • Created discussions Updating the GXR Mount
    It is very frustrating that Ricoh has abandoned GXR owners and left us with "system" cameras without any update path.   I have enjoyed my GXR M mount, but really yearn for an updated sensor, since ...
  • No one has mentioned the Pentax vintage 35mm lenses and you should consider them for use on the A7/A7R.  I recently tested the Pentax A 35mm f:2.8 and the Pentax A 35mm f:2 and compared them (in a ...
  • Many thanks for posting this.  I purchased, but have not yet used the sensor gel stick for my A7R.  Is the consensus that we need a wet solution to clean the sensor if the brush does not work? ...
  • The solutions you suggest all seem unworkable to me. Recording EXIF information shouldn't be such a chore or require so much manual record keeping. Since the Sony PlayMemories lens correction app ...
  • How do you accomplish making the lens correction app produce a raw photo?
  • One of the reasons the iPhone surged ahead of  the (at the time) very popular Blackberry was the avabililty of useful apps created by independent developers.  Sony is missing a huge opportunity to ...
  • One of the intriguing features of the Sony A7/A7R is its ability to download apps and expand the utility of the camera.   So far I've tried the lens correction app, but unfortunately using it to ...
