  • I believe there is a menu option to toggle PREVIEW EXP. in MANUAL MODE.  Turned on, the viewfinder/screen shows the actual (non flash) result, so for flash photography with manual settings as per...
  • Don't listen to the RAW snobs - this isn't JPEG compression, and not the type of artefacts you'd get if it was. (this type of banding would normally appear in formats such as a 128 colour .gif or...
  • absolutely.   I have both, my only digital cameras except the original GRD.   The XE-1 is not a carry everywhere camera for me, nor as inconspicuous as the GR (not even close).  What it is is a...
  • Which ever way it is interpreted, it still won't mean that it has 35mm framelines.  Because it doesn't.
  • Hi - i updated this morning, and contrary to what someone said above, peaking is only available in normal and 3x view. Zooming to 10x and the peaking disappears (as i would expect, so 10x can be...
  • Yep - mine does too.  Noticeable when i walk with the camera in hand and turned on. Can feel the 'shake' with each step (while i'm paying attention).
  • Ray - I logged on today to raise the exact same question/problem. Just back from a short city break and actually had shots ruined due to TaV mode (I assumed my AutoHighISO setting of 6400 would be...
  • ..and the 'grain' in the above photo looks more like noise reduction in LR (or in camera), than grain. Turn off NR in camera, and check LR settings
  • It's a lot easier (in my opinion) to focus with manual lenses than the awful focus by wire electronic ones.  I use a 50mm olly lens and a 21mm voigtlander.  Having actual direct and linear focus is...
  • Nope.
  • Also - and this will only be noticed by people who use the GR with the display OFF but info display turned ON (which brings up settings only if you want to change them).   My big bug bear is having...
  • I third this - and extend it to all the adjustments (adj wheel stuff, the effects, exposure comp etc) - I want the shutter to not only confirm, but put settings/screen back to standard. Off to fill...
  • Thanks Ray. I can see the value in some situations, but I guess I'm just used to the way my GRD works: Screen off mode, i can adjust exposure with press of + (and the info comes up on screen so i...
  • Hi - sorry i don't have the answer to this - but it is something I'd like to know also.  In fact it relates to another usability issue i have which is a way to use the shutter as confirmation.  I...
  • Hi Bruce, The live histogram is available to add to any of the (very customisable) display screens.  And the shutter makes a click noise even when all sounds are turned off.   Thanks tt
  • Hi Ray - wow, this is very surprising to me, as i have the GR and the Fuji X-E1 (which is reportedly better than the X-Pro for AF speed) and i'd say the GR is LOADS better in mid to low light than...
  • Hi Ray - the autofocus speed is a lot better than i was expecting - especially compared to my Fuji X-E1 and original GRD. It's comparable to the IV, as far as i can recall from my time with that...
  • Hi. I can't tell. I never put a cover on screens, and never had problems with modern screens - any marks are usually only visible with them turned off anyway. If Ricoh says its coated, shouldn't...
  • Replied in DOF at f2.8?
    Well Tom, apsc at f4 vs grd at f4 is a difference. What I meant was I'm not finding changing snap distance and paying much closer attention to subject distance as much of a problem due to the very...
  • It's just that you may as well crop afterwards, as it's the same thing but less final. You could also crop to a 7mp "50" if you wanted! but as in camera, it's not an actual 35mm field of view with...
