  • Yes, I found them more comfortable than the supplied one. I was in the past able to buy a genuine pack of 4 in 4 colours. I think I will test one for strength now though after reading this article ...
  • I figured that any strap that stops a Wii controller from being thrown around the room might be enough to save a GR from being dropped. The fabric on them is wider than the supplied one, making it ...
  • While I think these look cool it would be handy to be able to see the lens focal length marking on the lens barrel. I guess their fun nature could make a subject more relaxed. I would assume this ...
  • The kinky version has my mind boggling Yeah, the Street version is good design and as you say the IIIx likely could be different. I think I will stick with ViMa's idea of rings and use a different ...
  • I am wondering what the likely hood of Ricoh making a GR IIIx in the Street Edition colour ? I have a regular black GR III. It would be handy to have one or the other in different body colour but ...
  • I feel your pain John. In Australia with many tech goods and services, we have what we nickname the 'Australia Tax' where everything cost more than the US price with the exchange rate conversion ...
  • Created discussion thread Some GT-2 portraits on GR Blog
    Hi, there are some nice portraits using the GT-2 on the GR Blog. I use Chrome which will do an English translation for me as there was only the Japanese language page. Have a look here - ...
  • FWIW the Australian GR IIIx is listed as due on the 15/11/21 on the AU Pentax website
  • However, there is an economic block. Ricoh would have to license the patent from who ever own it,, raising the cost possibly beyond the point of it being viable to put into a GR. The cost of ...
  • To be honest I am not afraid of a bit of data loss from a crop. I have come from being a small 2/3" GR Digital user where the sensor size was still tiny compared to the GT-2 crop. I ask at what ...
  • I think you only have to look at the existing FF "compacts" like the Sony RX1 and the Zeiss ZX1 to see that these cameras with their bright aperture lenses are both expensive and large compared to ...
  • While I would be a buyer on a 21mm equiv native GR, now that I think about it they may even consider a 18mm equivalent as a bigger step from the 28mm. Sales might be low but price can be higher to ...
  • I can't translate what is said but if you watch from here, this is interesting. https://youtu.be/lP9wxQtyLkA?t=353 the interesting bit is at about 5min 55 sec, watch for the red circle when the ...
  • Maybe this was chosen due to vignette issue when not cropped ? 60mm would have been nice plus there is some data loss.
  • I bought a 40mm Zuiko in the 80s and used it for about a decade or more so I am quite familiar. I found it to be very versatile. I carried it with my OM4 a 21mm and a 100mm. I had a few 28mm ...
  • I've tried the Eye / Face Af using window light inside and it works quickly enough for me. I dont have much experience with other cameras. As I kept jabbing at the shutter button it switched to ...
  • Created discussion thread New GR III firmware - Version 1.50
    Hi, Ricoh have posted v1.50 firmware, you can get it here - http://www.ricoh-imaging.co.jp/english/support/digital/gr3_s.html?fbclid=IwAR1C4PgCPyp6V5aHNUtpGjWF-OWa1A2XGXmzer5HMugFm38aET68ATJM9Gw Fr ...
  • I would be very interested to hear from you as to if you print from both of theses systems and as to if the GR is as good or better than the Medium format film for any given size ? I do consider ...
  • I kinda wish there was a super HQ very flat pancake for the A6400. Its calling out for one. I wish the add-on 40mm VF was affordable. The OVF does help in hard light. I also moved to these types of ...
  • +2 Brilliant idea !! Custom step snap. Nextgen snap options. Love it
