  • The "x ingore user" is a very useful function on this site.  :-)  :-)
  • We've already read your comments on this over and over. Why haven't you left ?
  • Well said John, its pretty obvious isn't it, although it seems only the intelligent are picking up on this. ;-)
  • LOL, for starters its not my comment, but a Ricoh employee who clearly would not have English as a first language. Do try to keep up. Sheesh. If you think there is no GR then why keep posting here . ...
  • You are being disingenuous, you have taken the word study out on its own and hence out of context. The line is -- "the study for the development of the next GR is already ongoing" this means, MEANS ...
  • Thankfully someone with some sense. Thank you John. Mr Takashi said its coming. Its pathetic Fail logic from others wanting to read some other nonsense into the statement, it can't be read any ...
  • I could just copy/paste this to any forum here and substitute the GR to a model of that brand and it would still apply
  • I had read Japan camera hunter were looking to do this as they get so many requests for high quality fixed focal length lens compacts. I have not heard of any movement on this, anyone ? I do wonder ...
  • If - MY - GR died I'd replace it with a GR II, if the GR and GR II were not attainable even used, I'd go back to using my GRD IV, then III, then II then GRD 1, till they all died in the butt. If ...
  • All good points, Film for imaging does have some advantages. A Leica M4 with a roll of film needs no power, batteries or anything for a long time. Solar cells can charge a GR though. I do lament ...
  • If you are wrong you buy me a beer !  LOL.  Apparently Sony could might maybe possible making it.
  • They often start small and something of lower importance as a testing ground. This also was reported in 2014 so clearly testing and development was being investigated.  a hell of a lot can happen ...
  • It is a good answer - to me- ,  it is relevant to me, the GR is rarely a pocket camera to me, Its either in my hand or at most on my belt in its case. Someone asked why a FF ? I merely answer ...
  • - I - mentioned snap mode as this is what I hear from users about full frame being a deal breaker for them. Comments here have stated that snap mode will be useless with FF, and I say the physics ...
  • You miss the point. The physics of a snap mode won't determine if a GR III is made. No matter how well snap works or if it works at all in a FF GR its the market forces that dictate a lot of this IMO.
  • 2014 - https://petapixel.com/2014/10/01/sony-confirms-perfume-bottle-camera-curved-sensor-curved-sensor-rx1-works/
  • Much better IQ. If I look at images from the Sony RX1 or the A7s and the later versions the IQ is better, improved DR, and low light rendering is better on these cameras. This has been answered ...
  • that is where you are wrong, there have been cameras made using curved sensors.
  • I recall a number of complainers about the APSC GR when it came out after the GRD 1-4 series, quoting I wont buy it - turned out the whiners were wrong in most points. The APSC GR was fine. I ...
  • Its a human trait to read the same thing completely differently. I see it more as, we have a new GR coming and need to re-connect more with the GR users NOW so as to enthuse them to buy the new ...
