  • Especially like the image of the girl with the doll. It captures movement and has a real timeless feel to it. Could have been taken anytime in the last 50 yrs. And I find it difficult to find ...
  • Replied in GXR any good?
    This is all very helpful. Thank you. Apologies to ANAYV for this slight digression to GXR topic!
  • Was just asked about the age of my Q batteries and whether they were purchased at same time. They were. Since my camera has been on shelf for a while, perhaps it is coincidence all of my batteries ...
  • Replied in GXR any good?
    Used my GXR and A16 unit with tripod the other night to take photos in a cemetery. Have little experience with "painting with light" in dark, only in classroom setting. Realized afterward how I ...
  • Replied in GXR any good?
    Tom, that's interesting. You know, the batteries are all the same age, three Pentax and one Wasabi. A camera store near me had sold Pentax and Ricoh but no longer mention on their website. Think I ...
  • Thanks, Pacerr. Hadn't priced original bodies, so that is helpful info. Guess this makes avoiding Precision Camera a no-brainer. Although I'd hate to dispose of a camera back that hasn't seen a ...
  • Replied in GXR any good?
    The Q is dead, and Ricoh/Pentax said to send to Precision Camera for repair.
  • Took my original Q off the shelf and used this past week. The purpose was to decide whether to keep it. I had purchased a handful of compact cameras over the past three years, and while they are ...
  • Replied in GXR any good?
    I was interested in the GXR when it was full price but determined I could not afford. I ended up with GRDIV and a couple other compact cameras, but the GXR was always the camera that got away. ...
  • Someone on this forum, if I remember correctly, actually posted specific manual presets that produced what they thought were nice quality jpegs straight out of camera. Not sure if they were going ...
  • Hey, Tom B&H is selling it for $150, too, and will ship to AU. Have a look. Tina
  • Harold, what an interesting, insightful, and helpful reivew. Also looking forward to the second part.
  • Randomly came across GR for sale online at Staples (office supplies store) a few weeks ago. Same price now as then. Hey, you're buying a copier for the office and realize staff would find a camera ...
  • Glad you are enjoying the GR. My favorites are #3 and #5. The subject matter, textures and tones of #3 are lovely. The image doesn't strike me as morbid, but rather captures a beauty and order to ...
  • Created discussions Nice article
    Our local paper has an article today on Michael Penn. It's a fine acknowledgement of his work and the time he has spent photographing Philadelphia. http://www.philly.com/philly/news/A_lens_on_chang ...
  • Hi, Run - How've you been? Thanks for the tip on using the Kindle edition of Kelby's LR tutorial. Sounds like a good idea! Even though I have LR5 on disc, I haven't bothered playing with my JPG ...
  • Never held the A in my hands, but I have a GR. I consider myself a novice, still working in jpeg but hopefully not much longer. I used a manual film SLR for decades but need compact and light ...
  • Photoreddi - Funny you mention the Jersey Pine Barrens. I grew up in NJ and have driven through them to get to the beach. After my visit to the Serpentine Barrens, I got thinking about NJ and ...
  • Lovely images. Thanks for sharing!
