Earthrise's recent activity

  • Just baseless speculation.  There is a new RX cam due in the next month or two, which will probably be an iteration of their existing lines, but if it were APS-C and if this and if that etc then ...
  • This is very true.  If the new RX is just a new iteration of their existing lines, I wouldn't be interested anyway, but it might be something new. Say an APS-C with prime or limited range zoom, ...
  • I just hope if they have one planned they release it before Sony releases their near equivalent (if they do) otherwise I may get tempted.
  • Hi Tom, some interesting points. I very much doubt we'll see a direct successor to the GXR (having said this it probably means one will be released tomorrow). Though as you say the system did light ...
  • I was out wandering with the GR today using the GH3 adapter to hold filters. I definitely prefer the handling of the cam with the GH3 attached, but definitely appreciate the fact it comes off and ...
  • It's kind of what we do in photography, we pare back the elements in the shot to focus on the core message/subject. I am in the market for a new cam and yet I just can't quite get myself to commit ...
  • Totally agree with this. We can agree to differ on this bit :-)
  • I hadn't thought of the E-M10, but yep a gateway camera, though still well made like the GR and GXR. You've hit the nail though, getting the menu and control system right would be key.
  • Yep, that's the heart of it, and it's something I think Ricoh could do well.
  • Created discussion thread Camera for the modern age
    Hi, I'm beating on a tired old drum and in a sound proof forum but Thom Hogan has a new blog post I found interesting. http://www.dslrbodies.com/newsviews/the-camera-design-space.html It's all ...
  • Hi, 90 minute charging for the batteries sounds about right, but the age and heavy use of the batteries sounds like the problem.  I think the only way you can be sure is to buy or borrow another ...
  • Replied in Lens Patent
    Hi, this link is just to a recently published Ricoh patent: http://www.freepatentsonline.com/9606324.pdf as always it is just a patent and means nothing to what might happen.  The patent is ...
  • Although we get quite a few of these threads I always find them interesting. Generalising a lot I reckon there maybe a market for Ricoh for two cameras. The GR should stay as is, a photographer's ...
  • As always capturing light is about the glass not the silicon :-)

  • Not 100% but I think the current 1/1.7" is as big as it can go. But I guess a 1" sensor might be used to provide a multi-aspect ratio choice as Panasonic's GH cameras used to. So you could take ...
  • Replied in wondering...
    You know, I think I'm wrong about this patent.  It is probably for a GRD sized sensor camera.  Darn.
  • Replied in The GRDIV Q?
    Technically everything is possible, but only a small subset is economically viable.  Given that small sensor cameras have pretty much ceased to exist from all camera manufacturers, what makes you ...
  • Replied in wondering...
    Oh I don't know I'm quite looking forward to getting hold of a camera with IBIS and seeing how I can mis-use it :-) Yep, same company so yes the Pentax patents already exist, but the linked patent ...
  • Replied in wondering...
    It's doable in theory, Ricoh have a patent for it already: http://www.freepatentsonline.com/EP2715444B1.pdf http://www.freepatentsonline.com/EP2715444B1.html (same patent as non-pdf but no pics) Ye ...
  • Maybe this patent? Though this is more like a GR with IBIS: http://www.freepatentsonline.com/EP2715444B1.pdf Good point about the mount. Could be a mirrorboxless PK mount camera, or a new or ...
