  • Frans, the discussion was about RICOH DNG file ( not Panasonic ). Aside Ricoh and Leica , I cannot recall of any other camera using the ( universal ) DNG . All other cameras ( Panasonic included ) use
  • (great) Regards, MC
  • PS: Just visited your website and wow ! You are a great photographer ! Congratulations again. MC
  • Superb image! - I don't know Ninja (I'll give it a try probably). I however can obtain similar kind of saturation/film-like image with Lightroom (my version is 5.5). But again, regardless of ...
  • The viewfinder is showing 100% all right - and frame is for 28mm focal equivalent since the 18.3mm lens of the GR in combination with the APS-C sensor represents an equivalent of 28mm lens (in ...
  • I've got my GR 2 weeks ago in kit with the Ricoh optical VF (all at a really good price) ... While I love very much the camera, its handling, its IQ, responsiveness and so on... I find the ...
  • Biggest fart being the Oil-Sands exploitation in Alberta/Canada - pretty man-made as far as I know... Cheers, MC
  • Just bought it 2 weeks ago. To make a long story short : charged the battery and there it was, settings, ergonomics, controls, accessibility, all there, in a very straightforward & logical manner ...
  • Hi Frans, the DNG advanage (over proprietary RAW files) is that they are recognized/opened by ANY raw program from most basic ones to most sophisticated (even the "ancient", 10 y/o Photoshop CS-2). ...
  • It comes with Silkypix in the box - couldn't care less, too slow! BUT... the huge advantage of Ricoh RAW files is that they are DNG files (universaly recognized by any raw programs). They can be ...
  • So... tried posting. Looks like thread is closed. Too bad!

  • Replied in please explain
    + 1 here. Totally agreed. Seems some folks are "nostalgic" about the older & smaller CCD in the GRD1 - not sure why, even if I very well understand & like the "grit concept" (using that direction ...
  • LOL again... The purpose of TAv is to have short enough shutter speeds (in this case 1/200 of a sec.) so less blurred images in VERY low light. In this case light really low, aperture set at 2.8 ...
  • I post these very ordinary shots to respond another thread, in which it has been affirmed that smaller sensor would yield superior (or maybe more personal) "character" to images . I find the GR to ...
  • Well, actually Harold66 is not alone: could you explain this "concept" to me too? I also have the Nikon Coolpix P7800 (1/1.7" sensor) and while I love (and kept) that camera a lot for IT's ...
  • Sorry, but WRONG! From ALL APS-C CMOS sensor cameras, the GR has the least digital "look" and very film-like output (especially at high ISO). Here's some examples of what I am saying @ ISO 10.000, ...
  • I was wondering myself too... don't see how or why a smaller sensor camera would give an image with "more character" - whatever... MC
  • Replied in GR poll part 2

  • Replied in GR poll part 2
    «More character in the image» (???). From this point of view, the GR delivers in spades ! (not sure I've got your point. If you want a 2/3" sensor, go Fuji X-20 or X-30...) MC
  • Replied in GR poll part 2
    Now, this is the "best" comment I've heard of: could you be more specific ? Please name ONE COMPACT CAMERA of this SIZE and PRICE + DSLR equivalent IQ ( beside the soon discontinued & more ...
