  • Interesting, if you could PM me an email address I would be happy to place them somewhere and give only you the link. Or, any other suggestions are welcomed.
  • Because Ricoh doesn't have a full line of branded photography products being pushed into strong reseller channels with marketing and advertising money. It it is a niche product that can be ...
  • I went ahead and grabbed a sampling for DNG (Raw) and matched JPG files straight from the camera so that you can look for yourself. Link here ...
  • Great question. About half of these are HDR / multiple exposures and the others are single exposures. I auto bracket over half the time when I'm hiking or on the go where setting up too much for ...
  • I know where you are coming from. I sold my Panasonic LX7 and GF5 with 14mm 2.5 pancake lense to move to the Ricoh and I've found that it really blows away the MFT in low light and clarity.
  • Thanks to everyone who helped me discover that the GR was the perfect camera for my needs. I wanted something with exceptional quality in a small package. After testing for a month of so, and then ...
  • Most Apple products are made in China. It is commonly accepted that they are premium in build and feel. The engineering and material selection is what defines the feel.
  • This also makes buying a discounted or lightly used GR around a year after release an especially good value since it isn't typically updated for another year.
  • As a tip, I ordered the Wasabi wall charger with (2) batteries, Euro-adapter and car adapter for $24 from Amazon. The batteries work as well as the OEM one. In fact, I use Wasabi batteries for all ...
  • Those shots are not only well taken, but really well processed (if they were). Having touted the Ricoh GR as something worth selling the LX for, I will confess I took some of my favorite pictures ...
  • Thank you for taking the time to collect those links and the additional data. I am a strong MFT proponent because of all the glass out there. As I mentioned before, I have a G5 which uses a newer ...
  • Yes, I agree the GM1 is definitely better with the new sensor. To keep it small though, you have to use the kit lens or the 14mm 2.5...and even then it is a little thick for pocketing. If one ...
  • I just sold not only my LX-7 but also my GF5 w/14mm 2.5 prime. Both were about the same thickness, and image quality similar although the MFT had better tone/color and a slight edge in low light. T ...
  • Please make sure you share your impressions after you get it.....
  • I purchased a Ricoh GR two weeks ago after the same thoughts. A week later I sold my LX-7 and viewfinder....and I loved the LX-7. Here is what I loved about the LX: the shooting experience. The ...
  • Perhaps a new GR is coming soon with a pop up viewfinder. That would be fantastic. I picked up a discounted GR a month ago and I'm stunned at the image quality and sharpness for it's size. And, it...

  • Wonderful point. I'm rather new to this hobby, and I'm most surprised by the cynicism of everyone around here :-(.

  • Consider a Ricoh GR is pocketable is most important.

  • I upgraded from an LX-7 last week myself. As much as I love the LX, the GR shooting experience is just as good with much, much better image quality. You are in for a treat.
  • Replied in Newbie with GR
    Doug, I've had my GR for about a week now and I wish I had done this- Whatever mode you use most, reset to the default settings and apply it to one of the custom presets like "My3":  Initially you ...
