  • Do you really believe this? Then explain me, how HCB was able to get that blurred background in most of his famous shots, while having F8 set on his 50mm or 35mm lens?
  • Replied in FW 5.0?
    My #1 wish: Please eliminate the viewfinder blackout in single shot mode and the Viewfinder freezing in continious mode. Other MLU brands are significant better in this. #2: better & faster low ...
  • No thanks. As I said: "But please only for glass (like GGS) and/or foils. Not things like the hoodman loupe etc. I will never use those"
  • Hi, in bright sunny days, I have problems with framing and also seeing the AF field with my GR. I would be interested what your real life experiences are with screen protectors/foils to be able to ...
  • When did you buy your GR? In which country and with which serial number? Mine starts with 14102xxx. I bought it in Europe in 2013.
  • I believe it only, if it is written on the official Ricoh website... I had both, Sony RX100 and Ricoh GR. The difference in LCD screen screen is significant.
  • I never had blue halos with my GR. No matter whether I shot into the sun or at night with street lights. This is why I would recomend everybody to buy rather the cheaper GR instead of the GRII. For ...
  • No, they do not have the LCD from the Sony. I tested my GR against the Sony RX100 on the beach and there is a significant difference between Sony and Ricoh's LCD, if you still want to see, frame ...
  • How doos the lcd screen differ between grI and grII in the sun?
  • Created questions LCD Screens GRV Mk1 vs. MK2
    Hi, for those of you, who have both, the APS-C Ricoh GR Mk1 and GR Mk2, could you please compare the LCD display of the GRII when using it in very bright sunlight? is it better than with MK1? Can ...
  • Hi Ray, I agree with you. And this is why I asked the question to "mod2001", how he is able to set the minimum shutter speed to 1/500s in combination with ISO AUTO with the GRII. No matter in which ...
  • Even in TaV-Mode, I only have the option of maximum 1/250s in the menu. How do you get the option of 1/500s exactly step by step?
  • Yes I know. I did that already. But it goes only up to 1/250s in these options. Not up to 1/500s.
  • Question a) is anserwed here: http://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/3872779#forum-post-56142851 The GRII is still limited at 1/250s in ISO AUTO. Really disappointing... So has anybody experience ...
  • That is really a pitty. I need also often higher shutter speeds than 1/250s (kids etc.). I just do not understand why Ricoh is limiting with these basic FW settings such a great camera...
  • Hi, could you please check the LCD display of the GRII when using it in very bright sunlight? Can you still see and compose an image then? Do you see the AF point to proper focus on a subject? This ...
  • Created questions RX1 vs. RX100 LCD screen
    Hi, when I was using the RX100 in the past, I was impressed with its LCD screen in bright sunlight (with the menu setting for bright sunlight). Does somebody have both, the RX1 and RX100, and can ...
  • Replied in Agree 200%
    I do not say that I want a more mainstream product. "mainstream" sounds negative and is not focusing on the important point. I just said that IMHO the only way for Ricoh to survive with any kind of ...
  • How do you define serious? Or worth it to be considered good enough to make outstanding images? It is not the instrument per se that makes an image serious, it is how the photographer is using it. ...
  • Yes, that would be sad. But how many NEW customers would that bring to Ricoh? Bear in mind that as a producer it is only a numbers game without emotional arguments. How many customers are you ...
