  • Yep, your picking up of their future intentions is interesting. I've always thought that one possible successful outcome for the company Light, makers of the L16, would be to be bought out by a...

  • At last! :-) Been following the Light story from fairly earlier on so very pleased to see it get this far, and looking forward to see reviews of this on here. Shots in good light do look good but...

  • Thanks for this.

  • Commented on article Sigma SD Quattro H Review

    Hi Amnon, yep, fair enough, getting clarity on the technical side is useful, and that was a good question to ask. But the rest of your post is a bit apples vs pears that berates for not being one...

  • Commented on article Sigma SD Quattro H Review

    What I don't get is the quickly degrading high ISO performance argument. The camera does what it does if it's not acceptable for you simply don't buy. Its a bit like complaining that medium...

  • 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 ...
