Hi Ricoh users, I recently bought the Ricoh GR after hearing some very good reviews, and personal preferences. However I'm new street photography and really like to expand my interest and enhance the quality of my photographs of day to day streetlife. So...any tips or tricks?

Hi there!  I'm  about to purchase the Ricoh Gr and was wondering if the sigma vf11 viewfinder  would be a good choice for this camera. Thanks in advance

The one thing that continually bothers me is why the GR flash doesn't fire not matter how dark the setting. Had the camera at family reunion in a dark restaurant. Focus was awful. Searching searching searching. And no matter what settings I tried couldn't get the flash to fire please tell me how to make it work.  Thanks

I just discovered the ND filter setting and ran out to see if I could get a great shot of people moving by, but my result is still a very overexposed image. I go Tv, set it to 2 seconds, Focus to ∞, White Balance to Outdoors and ND says NR-AT. New York was sunny today and I was standing in the shade shooting towards Bowling Green park. Am I asking for too much?Would a hood help?

Hi, I just wondered about the huge color differences between the JPEG and DNG version taken with my Ricoh GR. The first two images were shot with the same settings about 30 seconds apart. The DNG was exported to JPEG in LR4. I think the colors, particularly the blue-tones of the sky, are over-saturated in the DNG versions. Is this due to the embedded DNG color profile or the ACR converter? If I were using a different RAW converter would the results differ? Or am I the only one who thinks the...

This may be a silly question to experts, but I see many saying the iPhone 6 takes great photos, but how would you say the Ricoh GR is better than just upgrading my smartphone (I'm on a 4s now)? I want to shoot sharp photos on my walks through the streets of New York. Is there any comparison like the studio shot comparison between a Ricoh GR and an iPhone? Thank you

I wasn't too keen on the little rubber hood that came with the GW-3 wide angle adapter to begin with - but I've now managed to lose it anyway! Probably because of its poor design it simply fell off at some point when I removed the adapter. I don't see an official replacement for sale anywhere - but perhaps there is a better option anyway - perhaps a generic 62mm screw in petal hood? Does anyone on this forum know of a suitable solution? Obviously any third-party hood will need to remain...

Hi everyone, I wanted to bounce my thoughts off some people and see what I got back. I'm looking into buying a new camera in the 500-800 dollar range. I was looking at a new smartphone, but it finally hit me that I don't care enough, my current one is one of my least glitchy devices right now, and buying something new would only throw that away. So I repurposed the fund to a device I might actually get productive use out of. I'm looking to take entirely too many pictures for fun, just...

Greetings. Hoping for some guidance here. I purchased a new Ricoh GR at a camera shop in town (loving' this little rig), and it came with software version 1.11. I've attempted to update the firmware to version 4.0 several times to no avail (using a 2012 Mac Book Pro). I'm following the steps to a tee on the Ricoh website. I've got a charged battery and I've tried 3 different SD cards (all with 16 gig or more)...no dice. The new version is not showing on the "Confirm Firmware Version" screen...

Hi! I have been curious about the GR for quite a while now. Seems like the perfect substitute camera when i don't want to carry the dslr, but still get decent quality photos. Recently they also lowered the price for it in my area which makes it almost irresistible.  I don't have a good insight in Ricoh products and their upgrade-rate so my question is: Is it a good idea to buy it now or is there a new model on the way soon? would be grateful for some tips from the Ricoh-experts. :-)
