If you have a Ricoh GR, all you need is one hand for the camera, one for the brolly.

"Need" is the wrong word for this shopping list. Other than the memory card, these are add-ons one might want to consider someday. But they won't become needs until they're needs. -- Or maybe never will.

To make photos with your cellphone, you need a cellphone, and that's about it, right?

morepix: For my taste, it would be an improvement if Panasonic and others camera makers revised their product revisions to once every four years, instead of every two, with more significant improvements at each step. The manufacturers would save money, we buyers would save money -- altogether a win-win.

THEY make me do it. I'm helpless!

Looks like a substantial error in the UK price listed.

On article UPDATED: Sony RX100 Mark V real-world samples (275 comments in total)

I wish Sony would totally re-think the user interface. Features and IQ are important, to be sure. But if the camera is unpleasant to use, I don't want one. And I'd really like to want one.

In reply to:

J Parker: Although it's a fixed lens zoom, Panasonic's LX100 would be a decent alternative to any of these cameras at a very reasonable price point (especially considering the well regarded Leica lens on this camera).

For my two cents the IQ of my LX100 is good, but it compares badly with the IQ from my GR.

I held out, hoping the rumors were bogus. But alas, they weren't. So I have to repeat: no EVF, no deal. Truly sorry.

Linerider: Seriously??
These are points offer nothing new or significant and this is nothing more than click bait!

1: 12MP is good enough?
Then get the Samsung S7, its pretty much got the best phone camera

2: It shoots Raw?
So does the Samsung, and its a year older and cheaper. Why is this news?

3: The iPhone 7 Plus has a proper zoom. Kind of?
Ok, ill give it that, but the Samsung is wider

4: ???

5: The iPhone 7 Plus can do bokeh. Kind of?
There are many apps you can download which can pretty much do the same thing

6: It's optically stabilized.
Again, the Samsung, and cheaper.

7: It's quick, and powerful
Yawn! All new phones are quick and powerful

8: It shoots 4K
Did i mention the Samsung? Did i mention cheaper??

9: It's water-resistant
A year late, a buck short

10: Good iPhone cameras lead to better 'proper' cameras.?
And?? What does that have to do with the iPhone?... specifically??

10.5: It's an iPhone camera.
Irrelevant.
However this can be a minus as well as a plus.

I can tell you unhappily that switching from an Apple iOS phone to an Android phone is not anything like seamless. I'm doing it. It was a mistake.

On article Hasselblad True Zoom Moto Mod hands-on preview (152 comments in total)

The camera-equipped smartphone has been the huge success that it has because you automatically stick the phone in your pocket and still have a camera of sorts. But with this add-on, is it still pocketable? If not, we have an unhappy situation well-characterized by the expression, "throwing the baby out with the bath water."

On article 8K Helium Super 35mm sensor on the way from RED (86 comments in total)
In reply to:

Neez: I don't think they should use chemical elements in the name, unless it's involved in the manufacturing process or something. Do they use helium to make this sensor?? Otherwise, it doesn't seem right to call it the Helium Sensor.

Like if i were to call a car, the Toyota Propane vehicle, people would be all kinds of confused.

Other transgressions of the name Helium:
An indie rock band.
A music manager software program.
A travel case for your bicycle.
A sleeping bag (Marmot).
A rain jacket (Outdoor Research).
A smartphone (Archos).

And helium itself is named after the Greek personification of the sun. What about THAT?!

SolidMetal: I'm a photographer and yet I think that taking pictures totally detracts you from the actual event.

The "actual event" is a fiction. All you have access to is the experienced event. So experience it as best suits you -- photos or no photos.

I'm finding, for example, that drawing enhances my perception of the subjects I draw. So, perhaps likewise photography.

On article 2015 Roundups: Fixed Prime Lens Cameras (231 comments in total)
In reply to:

LarryLatchkey: I have to comment one more thing, as I find it quite frustrating: the GRs are not included in the current studio comparison tool.

Just shortly after it was tested (and the Nikon A) the studio scene was changed, yet there are models included in the current tool that are much older than the first APS-C-GR, such as the OMD-EM 5, Sigma DP1 Merrill, Pentax MX-1, or Nikon Coolpix P7700. Expecially seeing that the GR has become such a success, I'm sure I'm not the only one who would like to be able to compare. In view of the claim of “poor high ISO image quality” – I must admit, the one picture in the gallery with the two ladies looks a bit disappointing for ISO1600, but then Nikon A wasn’t better. Would also be nice to know if Ricoh tweaked with the JPEG processing for the GR II.

Sure the GR is included in the comparison tool. Just go to some other recent camera (e.g., the Fuji X70), bring up the IQ page with the studio shot. Then you can bring up images from the GR II (same IQ as GR, I assume), and compare it's images with any other camera that's included there.
