  • My favorite is #3. I like the hairy look of the spider and its long legs with the softness of the evergreen or fern. The soft coloring is lovely, too. All of the images in this set are ...
  • As with all things Ricoh, I believe it when I see it and don't bother thinking about it otherwise.
  • Yeah, phases of life can put one in a distracted state. A very normal thing. Yes, I do use special interests as subjects for photographs. It's quite helpful and expands the enjoyment of both. But ...
  • My state of mind seems to have an impact on my ability to be present in the environment and notice things. If one is not alert, curious or aware of their surroundings, it's difficult to take ...
  • Thank you!
  • For the less experienced, would you mind explaining what this conversion lens does? Does it change the focal length as well as provide macro capabilities? Thanks!
  • I also have no idea what the forum rules are as far as resolving disputes or dealing with ill behavior, so I guess it would be good to check. But I am disappointed that all good information Mike ...
  • What in the world? Think I've deduced which Unknown member, and that's a shame. Definitely a lot of helpful Ricoh camera info gone. Can't imagine their wanting that, even if they were tired of site.
  • This is the best discussion and critique of an image posted on this forum in months. I think it is an example of what more people want when they post images and request feedback.
  • Replied in why not APS-C?
    Just reading these posts and have no knowledge of how sensors and lenses affect camera size. Not even in the market for new camera. Never looked at these side by side, but let's see. Here's a quick ...
  • Replied in GX100
    Images taken at night, jpegs straight out of camera.
  • Nice photo, Rick. Would you mind sharing more? My good friend's brother is a member of the Dirt Band.
  • Am wondering that exact question. I usually leave battery in but generally don't let my cameras sit long without using. The Q has been neglected over past year.
  • The Q is dead again. Switched out battery for a fully charged one. Will see what happens but have a feeling will be returning to camera store.
  • Thanks go in this instance to Raist3d an SW Anderson, as well as the previous Ricoh members, including yourself. It takes a community sometimes to solves these mysteries! I am no techie. :-)
  • Thanks, Tom. Check this out. Updated my situation on Pentax Compact Forum on my original thread, but then I noticed someone had similar problem. One of the responses they received made perfect ...
  • So the more I think about it, the more this makes sense with what happened with my Q camera. It sat idle for a number of months but then I used for an afternoon. It seemed fine. I went through the ...
  • Hi, I just happened to stop by today to update what happened with my original Q, which had a similar thing happen as you describe, but mine wouldn't turn on at all. There's hope, but I don't know ...
  • Created discussion thread Thanks for your insight
    Two or three months ago I mentioned my Pentax Q wouldn't turn on after a period of sitting idle. All five batteries held a full charge but none would start camera. Over on the Pentax forum, I ...
  • Thought folks here might be interested to know how this situation played out. I had found an alternative place for camera repair but hadn't sent. I was offered insight into problem over in Ricoh ...
