On article Which Sony RX100 is right for you? (858 comments in total)
In reply to:

ChristianC1975: hard to believe this article is not somehow paid for, bit cannot find that anywhere... Quite sad.
On the other hand, the VA version of this cam is still clearly the best one by far.

suddenly he now likes to quote dpreview....

*except* when they call the RX100 a “runner-up”

is that what you expect of every company?

I guess you approve of companies lying directly to the public

"better or worse" for who? what you're describing is UX. this is different.

"Behavior hacking" in this case is about the actual intent (increasing ad views) vs publicly stated intent (digital "well-being"). if you don't see those two things being at direct odds I don't know what to tell you

its behaviorial hacking for their benefit but press-released as if it was for ours

iudex: Good choice Barney. I made similar. I was looking for a small camera I can put into my pocket. My Fuji X-T20 is not big, but still does not fit and I have to carry it in a backpack. On a hike or climb it is sometimes (most of the times) not possible or convenient to put the backpack down, take out the camera and shoot. So I ended up shooting with a phone, which is not ideal. So I looked for a compact with good image quality, i.e. at least 1" sensor, ideally APSC. There´s where the Ricoh emerges. Really tiny, but with great image quality. However the Mk III is damn expensive, 900 EUR is a hell of a lot money. Then I came across the Fuji XF10. The same APSC sensor, the same 18,5mm lens, the same f number, the same size and weight... for 300 EUR brand new. This was 1/3rd of the Ricoh, so the choice was clear. Now I am a happy owner of the XF10.

yeah the GRIII is expensive. its unique advantages (and limits) arent worth it for everybody

surprising the price hasn't fallen yet like the XF10 has, even during black friday in the US

huh?

I mean less successful in getting the shot. there’s much less tolerance for people pointing big shiny cameras at them

17einhalb: I resold my Ricoh GR3.

It was not possible to make a satisfactory black and white processing of the raw files. Also the "grain structure" was not homogeneous and stained with far too many artifacts. Tried several raw editors. LR 6.14 and LR CC as well as Capture one.
The old Ricoh, which I love very much, took more beautiful pictures despite only 16 MP. Normally I print on Epson P800 for exhibition purposes.
The Ricoh GR3 is a clear step backwards compared to the old GR.

sounds like you’re going for that very specific gritty b/w film look often associated with old GRs, am I right

I believe in...physics?

no need to get defensive but I see a lot of people looking directly at the camera. that’s cool if that’s what you’re going for, but I can tell you it’d be less successful in other places like NYC

some nice shots tho

whawha: I love my GRII but the resolution bump is very tempting. I use a small Ricoh optical finder on mine, it doesn’t add a lot of bulk. Shame they got rid of the flash though.

cropping. with the resolution bump you know gain a 35mm crop mode at the same full resolution of the previous GR

@jjcha

holding a tiny matte black rectangle with no reflective surfaces is considerably lower profile than holding an X100, much less a chrome one. that camera was designed to be seen

@jjcha you can take that lens cap on and off one handed?

i might understand where you’re coming from if you’re looking down shooting from the hip with the X100’s tilt screen but if you ever bring it up to eye-level with the viewfinder, or even just have it hanging around your neck, then you’re absolutely broadcasting your intent

the GRIII is smaller profile (and less shiny) than an android phone. you can absolutely palm it. have taken so many shots with it in NYC I wouldn’t even try with anything else

flektogon: I am afraid that you won't find an uglier camera on the market. Pity that Pentax didn’t design it.

thats very deliberate by Ricoh. the logo is greyed out and you can even turn off the powered on light

it’s meant to be used not seen

rsf3127: It would be nice if less than 600USD. Otherwise, it is just a ripoff.

nah sensor is good but the lens is permanently soft and the camera is slow. also needs a lens cap. you get what you pay for

fotolapsa: The unanswered question will remain where does the dust go in a sealed camera body, is there a little carpet where it gets swept under?

ok. just answering your question about where the dust goes

Ricoh did add the new dust removal feature in the GRIII so they're not sitting idly by

true about a sealed fixed lens, but the GR lens is famously sharp, slips in a pocket, is ready in under a second, and doesn't require a lens cap. benefits outweigh the cons

that'd take an inordinate amount of dust over time

Osa25: Was a bit incomplete for this ad to mention the shirt pocket convenience of the GR without touching upon the subject of how the product line might cope with dust or whatever in that shirt pocket.

that'd take an inordinate amount of dust over time
