  • Nice one Ned, I think it looks a very nice colour. Having the other camera colours makes it easier to discern the III from the IIIx at a glance. Enjoy it and I hope it encourages you to make more ...
  • Thanks for the notice. I've got both the new GR III and GR IIIx updates which look to have the new simulation. Looking forward to trying it out. It could be a sim that gets some use. cheers
  • Hands down the Ricoh GR series my big winner #1 favorite . Palm sized that delivers great images, high keeper rate with a great look. The DP2 sensor in a GR body would have been super. There is ...
  • Replied in Wide crops..
    I like them, I wonder if we can get Ricoh to put a 64:24 ratio crop with frame lines for this in firmware update. I'd would be interested to see some largish printed images from these crops. I will ...
  • Created discussion thread Look at that, magnetic filter kit
    Attractive implementation, hopefully achieves some dust protection also https://pentaxrumors.com/2023/01/12/new-hy-49mm-magnetic-filter-set-for-ricoh-gr-iii-cameras-nd64-cpl-uv-filters-included-ava ...
  • I reckon there would more than that. They would have to rework the in camera processing for JPG, their RAW processor that is in camera and have some bw simulations reworked for the new sensor True, ...
  • I will go out on a limb and I'd bet if Ricoh were to make a mono GR that there will be 4 cameras. A GR IV and IVx in both colour and mono.  Once the engineering is done its only manufacturing runs. ...
  • I will look up this guy Eddy's work. As an ultimate kind of test, I could go on a holiday and only take a mono camera and be happy. For me,, while I can see the improved tonality of a mono camera ...
  • That is an image with some punch. The grain which is of a good type adds to the effect. A very nice composition.  Makes you eye lead which way
  • Created discussion thread Pentax Monochrome K3 maybe a GR ?
    I can't recall if this was mentioned here. Pentax have within the K3 III been experimenting with a monochrome only sensor. If you view this on Youtube proper you can bring up subtitles and see and ...
  • A lucky find. About 20 years ago i saw a guy with a Ricoh GX100 and only the occasional X100 user.
  • You don't mention here if you were copying RAW+jpg ? as I was trying to back them both up. It could be as much as 64Gb of images. Being in IT I have access to a bunch of USB SD card adapters and I ...
  • I have like many looked into a portable backup for when travelling. I've tried using a mobile phone with SD or Micro SD adapter via the USB port and putting backups onto the 256Gb phone drive. Its ...
  • Yes, this will be interesting to see samples. I agree, it is a bit of a shame, perhaps the exclusivity is used to drum up sales. Either way the more GR III they sell will spur on a new developed GR ...
  • Yes, very much agree. I hope that manufacturing techniques have improved to help mitigate this
  • DPR in general, however even this forum in the past. I think having a moderator applied here has helped.
  • I am sorry to say this, but for me this forum can be a hostile place. It has been so in the past. For me its not conducive to engage with images.
  • They started drawing https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ilBbVpgLP_0 The other take away from the first video is the old Pentax film camera designers are passing the knowledge to the new young ones.
  • The guy in the video mentions they are looking to do a number of cameras, initially a compact, then an high grade compact and others. There is more than one planned. Buying used film cameras and ...
  • Created discussion thread PENTAX Film Project Story #1
    This is some of the most exciting news in a long time. A must watch for any film aficionado. Put on English subtitles. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FXUmpqY3nWQ When he said, we will develop a ...
