  • I see, and that definitely sounds quite flexible and something I would want to work with. But why isn't the same true for the much-loved 35 mm eq. FL? It seems this is all about how much you step ...
  • The GR III x website product description says something interesting about the lens: https://us.ricoh-imaging.com/product/griiix/ "users can capture an image similar to those taken at a 30mm ...
  • So, one can choose and use one of these at one time? Say, full press snap is active, then how does one shift quickly to AF Point+Focus? Also, if I select AF Point+Focus from the touch screen, then ...
  • Actually, that's a good point. Going from 4 m to 1.5 will require too many twists of the front dial. Taking the street photography focused theme of the GR ahead, it would be great if Ricoh let us ...
  • Oh, hmm. But is it as fast to use as snap focus? Wouldn't it be better to rely on the screen AF instead? Come to think of it, I am not even sure I know how to manual focus on the GR! Lol
  • For those who have been shooting with the GR III x for a while, how is your experience with snap focus mode / full press snap? Given the 40 mm eq. lens, I imagine that you need to be careful with ...
  • You know, I thought I knew that! Haha. I've recently discovered the square format and I've been practising a lot with my iPhone's 28 mm camera. I quite like a lot of what I am getting. I realised ...
  • Thanks for this link. It's quite useful indeed. He has a range of pictures taken at different distances, and that gives a good sense of what to expect in terms of working distances. The first ...
  • Created question thread GR III with a 28 or 40 mm lens?
    While I shoot with a 50 mm-40 mm eq., I've recently discovered the 28 mm eq. FL. In particular, I am quite taken with the 28 mm when shot in square format. I find this combination let's me get up ...
  • This is illuminating! I knew that a lot is happening on the software front, but this casts it all in a different light. I hadn't quite noticed this, and assumed that sensors are bigger now, and ...
  • Interesting observations. I agree that they should avoid periscope designs and go for bigger sensors. I never understood this need for the entire zoom range. I am quite happy with 28 mm, 50 mm, and ...
  • Oh! Thanks for clarifying this for me. I wasn't clear about full press snap and snap mode. Snap mode on U1 with AF on the LCD will work quite well for me. That way there will be no half press on ...
  • Nice picture :) I love the 80-90 FL range. I've shot street and landscapes with that too. It's quite versatile actually. Maybe in 2-3 years, we'll see optical zooms in iPhones. Then we can just ...
  • Ha ha, funny! I am actually a bit surprised. These decisions are not taken in a hurry. I would imagine Apple had settled on the 28 mm FL after adequate deliberations. It's also the go to FL for ...
  • 1) I thought a full press of the shutter in one go takes a picture at the snap focus distance. 2) If you half-press then it's AF as usual, and a picture with a full press. Now you're saying the ...
  • I see. Thanks for the confirmation. Isn't it a little odd that Apple shifted 2 mm wider after sticking with 28 mm for all these years? I have begun to quite like the 28 mm, so I am not sure how I ...
  • Created question thread iPhone 13 focal lengths etc.
    From what I know the iPhone 8 and SE have 28 mm eq. focal length lenses. Given that so many changes have been made to the camera modules with the iPhone 13 models, is that still the 13's main lens ...
  • Oh, then the other poster was wrong. That means there'll alway be the risk of accidentally staying on too long at half-press and making the camera AF, instead of shoot at the preset snap focus ...
  • Yes, I know that. I was asking if it can be setup so there is only one function assigned to the shutter button--that of actuating the shutter at the snap focus distance?
  • Oh, I see. I am assuming this is easily done through some function button? Maybe set the side video button to shift quickly between AF and MF? Does the touch screen work in MF mode? e.g., will ...
