  • I actually had that Industria finger strap in my cart, then saw shipping to Canada would be $39. That was more than the strap!
  • I’m putting that on my list.
  • I should have mentioned in my original post, but I may be one of the few who never fell in love with the PD gear (I did own the leash and cuff, at one point). I just find the clips kind of bulky, ...
  • Created discussion thread Minimal cross-body strap?
    I'm looking for some recos on a minimal, cross-body strap for my Ricoh GRlllx. I would need to quickly switch between hand strap and neck strap. One thought is to re-purpose a couple of the straps ...
  • Good to hear. How about uneven skies? In your photo, there’s a halo near the trees on the right. My 11 Pro does this sometimes. In the image below, you can see the darker halo around the sign. It ...
  • The Glif has been backordered for over a year.
  • Same. I’ve gotten much more enjoyment out of my illustration work the past few years than any of the photography stuff.
  • I'm kinda in the same boat. I'd like to see a 24, 50 and a 100+. I don't understand Apple's fascination with the ultra wide. You have to be really careful with straight lines, etc ... On our last ...
  • So should we all be shooting 100% manual all the time? Count me amongst the "lazy". I still own several dedicated cameras, but their uses are becoming more and more limited. I'm just not interested ...
  • Thanks for the clarification. I sometimes use the term “Complicated Solution Enhancer”, but then my phrase also becomes … complicated!
  • I had a Pictar a few years ago and returned it. Felt cheap, and it drained my iPhone's battery super fast. The Pictar and phone also ran hot. No sure if later models are better. I found it ...
  • My mantra here is also "good enough". Many years ago, I would happily spend hours on my RAW files in Aperture. When Apple killed it, I went to LR (didn't like it). Over the years, I tried a few ...
  • The developer for Halide says that HDR can’t be turned off in recent iPhones … https://www.reddit.com/r/apple/comments/q35ca5/disable_hdr_option_for_photos_missing_on_iphone_13/ I’m kind of glad I ...
  • I’m not about to sell my cameras (yet), but I’m using them way less, for sure. We had our first trip last week since COVID (Victoria & Vancouver). I brought my Ricoh GRlllx and iPhone 11 Pro. The ...
  • Replied in Back in Japan!
    Great pics. Ultraman!
  • Interesting timing. I’ve been mulling over this (again) for the past week, with travel becoming a thing, again. . I had forgotten I wrote that mini-review on the HX-99. I’m with NorCalJim. In ...
  • So, is the manufacturer trying to be funny?
  • I thought this was a weird statement on the JJCs Amazon page: ”Tips: The first time you use it, please put on this cap on the lens and wait for 12 hours.”
  • I actually have both of Ritchie's apps (Fuji & Ricoh). I enjoy playing around with them, but it can sometimes be overwhelming. All 7 banks on my Fuji have a FujiXWeekly film sim. I'm purposefully ...
  • I've only had my lllx a short time, so I'm still fiddling with things. Been spending a lot of time with the in-camera RAW developer. Positive Film I'm liking Positive Film. I know there's a lot of ...
