  • Hi, Should be easy to find because so many cameras have the same battery. . Theese are all the same battery, but under other brands so the charger is compatible, as well: (1) Samsung IA-BH125C
  • +1 to get what ever is now available (assuming it meets your needs). No point waiting for some unannounced product with unknown specs. If you are not sure, get your GR second hand, and save some money.
  • Thanks for the tips and encouragement :) I'll be sure to check the local second hand / vintage camerastore for those 50mm's. I'll get to try some Pentax primes at a family gathering on Christmas ...
  • Yes, quite notable physical difference. There is an image in this following link to point it out: https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/59893843 EDIT: Actually, if my memory serves me right, the ...
  • Thank you for feedback! That was my only lens. Without tripod that would have been impossible to me. In fact, it was easier to move the subject than try to move and refocus the camera. Did not ...
  • Merely notes to my self... Don't like how the color spreads with this lens so monochrome it is. A quick aperure / DOF comparison. Shot in Bold Monochrome. Lens zoomed in. Measure tape was almost ...
  • Testing an old Pentax-M 35-70mm F2.8-3.5 lens with my Pentax Q. This was just my initial test setup: [Lens reversed] + [58mm filter thread to PK adapter] + [PK to PQ adapter] + [Camera] Note to ...
  • Hi, iPhone is so good at making pretty images (color and exposure wise) that you may initially be dissappointed with the real camera pictures. They might need a tad more post processing than those ...
  • Hi, Great tips already, but here is one resouce I found very useful. Threre are many tweaks pointed out, that are not obious by just reading the official manual: http://www.waloszek.de/gr_faq_e.php ...
  • Hi, The USB-cable is proprietary but you can plug the USB-calble to a computer USB-port or to a cellphone charger. (Ricoh wall plug is rated 5V / 1000mA). Ricoh GR usb-cable (is NOT standard ...
  • A bit late maybe, but saw this dongle/hub speed test and practicality comparison last week and tought it might be useful info here.. https://www.mattgranger.com/gear-talk/item/1072-the-ultimate-usb ...
  • Submitted a challenge entry Night flight in moon light.
    Went out to test my new Pentax Q for longer exporures. The full moon hid behind clouds but an airplane entered the frame instead.

  • Replied in Its dead, Fred
    When in snap focus mode, you can directly change the distance without going to any menu. Just press and hold the flower icon (macro button) and scroll the front wheel. (And my Fn1 button is set to ...
  • Thanks for your input! I have since noticed too that many newer cameras can do this best frame capture. I even thought again of getting the Panasonic LX10 with this 4K-pre-burst-mode. But my GR is ...
  • Hi again, I was playing around little moore with the moving focus point, and maybe I understand what you ment: So you are not using focus point with snap focus, but you would like to switch between ...
  • Hi, I'd say that it does not work because snap focus does not focus into anything or any part of the view. It is just a locked focus in a certain distance. Sorry if I did not understand your ...
  • Submitted a challenge entry Retriever
    Having outdoor settings in the camera resulted a longish shutter speed indoors.

  • Replied in Bad sensor?
    Hi, I don't think it's a bad sensor. It's probably some kind of correction applied to the image. If my memory serves me right, I read that it might affect images with less light / extreme sitution?). ...
  • Replied in Dust issue
    Hi, Probably same dust issue as any other camera that is not environmentally sealed. I once got dust to my camera when turning it on in a dry windy weather. I guess there was very fine sand ...
  • Hello, and wellcome to the manual side of photography! :) This post probably doesn't help you get better colors, but maybe helps to understand why the Auto mode initially gives better colors. Like ...
