  • Replied in Ricoh Film
    I use a Ricoh GR and a film Ricoh, the GR1v. I have to say, they handle very similarly, but the GR1v is such a joy to use, as it let's you just think of the shot and removes most of the technical ...
  • The same thing happened to me and my Ricoh even fell in a puddle. That was almost one year ago. Luckily it's still working fine.
  • Replied in Ricoh GR1v
    Hey Geoff Have a look on my blog... also got a whole set shot in Japan on the Ricoh GR1v: http://www.abtin-e.com/#!project-japan-beyond-colours/c1xcp With regards to the LCDs... yes, my GR1v has ...

  • Thanks Ned-B The Ricoh will be the camera permanently attached to me hand, but I will also have my OM-D E-M5 with me for other focal lengths. Will share some images when I'm back.

  • Framing in a fast paced environment such as a busy street is very difficult to do blindly!
  • I have the same problem... Any solutions proved to work?
  • Hi hiplnsdrftr I also experienced this when I first started using the GR. I was surprised by the fact that even with flash, high ISOs were chosen by the camera. As suggested by another user, I set ...
  • I had a the pana-leica for almost two years! Lost it somewhere around the time the Oly came out. Was pondering the decision between buying another PL or the Oly. Decided to get the PL for the ...
  • They need to take more sample photos of people... Especially with this lens which, essentially is a documentary lens.
  • Thanks Daniel. The cleavage shot is also one of my faves.
  • Yes... I'm amongst many who still do!

  • Haha... glad you like them. But on a serious note, I'd never expect to shoot an event like the Carnival in B&W as it's known for it's rich and vibrant colours. Are they a distracting element in the ...
  • I've had mine since shortly after launch last year and use it almost everyday with a 16gb Sandisk 95mb/s and have not encountered this issue.
  • Last year I took my new Ricoh GR along to the Notting Hill Carnival. It was to compliment my Olympus OM-D E-M5 but I found that I ended up using the GR more than the Oly due to the compact size, ...
