  • I like the way the GH4 and 5 handle, but the G9 feels GREAT in the hand, and the buttons are in good places. The upcoming full frame Panasonics looks like oversized G9s, which ought to feel ...
  • Likely created by the same production company, here is the extended commercial for the Fuji X10, also in super dark Asian gothic style. Ricoh could learn a lot from this. https://www.youtube.com/wa ...
  • Yeah, Daido has been shooting for a lot longer than the GR film cameras were around. Even in the digital age, he's shot with a Nikon zoom compact, and according to Tokyo Camera Style, he's now ...
  • That's quite likely. Daido has admitted to having problems with alcohol and other addictive substances. https://www.japantimes.co.jp/culture/2010/12/10/arts/daido-moriyama-tsugaru/#.W7gvJfloRaQ
  • Created discussion thread In the spirit of Daido Moriyama
    The GR concept video is great, but very factual. It relies on a sense of history, and outlines the presiding themes of the GR. Daido Moriyama is one of the most publicly known users of the GR ...
  • The 17mm f1.8 is kind of cool, but seems redundant in the face of the Olympus lens which has been around for years, and has a manual focus clutch ring as well as AF.

    The 9mm f2.8 would be great to...

  • Replied in Yes
    I can't speak for Andrewtee, but the reason why I would own a GR as well as a Q is because of the difference in size, cost of replacement, and ease of use. The price of a Q would get you six GRs ...
  • @Samuel Dilworth - thank you for the link, that was very interesting. It looks like they were using a range of images taken with previous cameras, so I'm unsure how many were taken with the ...
  • Only a GR can beat a GR! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ycI0EYZlbAE BE YOUR EYES!
  • Vaintaking - 'thou shalt not take the Lord's name in vain'. Actually, that's probably not a real word.
  • Short answer: yep. Long answer: it's a relatively uncommon Australian slang-of-slang, used in the same way that one might say 'geez' instead of the more vaintaking 'Jesus'. Middle answer: yes, like ...
  • HAHAHAHA this is something I love about the Ricoh forum. We can joke about the weirdest things in the most rondom, I mean random, ways. Actually, I concocted that phrase from a video on YouTube of ...
  • As noted by me and others, the exposure rocker is very useful, and has been a part of the Ricoh/GR experience, but if it's replaced by the ADJ lever then it might not be that bad after all. The ...
  • 'Tis a joy to fark Oh, what a lark To writhe and pump As if in a park Filled with joy, not a dump But let us not slump For my eyes do roll When a quip so droll Is said to a troll Who gives a fark? ;-)
  • The issue is not about disagreement. The issue is with the doomsaying hyperbole surrounding the new GR design. Some people are lambasting Ricoh, saying that the new GR is crippled or worse because ...
  • My neutral review wouldn't be read by those 'who are damned'. They will be too busy snarking about the gross corporate hypocrisy of Ricoh and their pathological errors in camera design. (rolls ...
  • I'm pretty excited about the GR III being the same length as the GRD III. That was my first Ricoh, and I loved how small it was. The GR was just a bit longer and felt, I don't know, not quite as ...
  • Was it this video? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GW7e9gvIYjA
  • Yeah, who can shoot this camera without being told Ricoh are doomed idiots for removing features? Doesn't sound very stress-free to me. Naysayers be damned. I'm getting this camera because the GR ...
  • Habla usted pantalones? :-D
