  • With the electronics that I deal with often on a daily basis, I know that there is Phillips and Pozidriv screw heads and matching screw drivers to deal with. and a bunch of others with a cross, I ...
  • I've found the adjust lever for exp comp a much better implementation. More than once I inadvertently hit the rocker on the GR only to find some bad exposures. Nothing worse than a great image ...
  • I have been there and can concur fully on the issue. I left DSLRs and many other cameras behind because of carry issues with kids. Being able to use a camera one handed very well can be handy. This ...
  • I disagree, it is a problem with all retractable lens digital cameras. In the 80s and 90s I used my OM4 with 40mm lens always with film pre-wound, the lens set to a hyperfocal distance with ...
  • I tend to want to travel without a tripod. For various reasons. On occasion I had managed low light images with my Pana LX3 (no IBIS) using techniques like the 2 sec timer while bracing and ...
  • And noted in reviews the III is even faster, and I concur. Its already proven itself useful to me. Yes, I have. FYI its not just lens extend time but LCD on and camera readiness to response to ...
  • I have found the IBIS has resulted in some excellent images that the GR & GR II would have failed to get. Its a useful tool for me.  I particularly enjoy the extra fast startup time the III has ...
  • nup, I was replying to the OP meaning that I don't think he is overdoing it.
  • I think they look just fine on my monitor. I like the aesthetic of minimalism. The first image I would put up as a print on the wall.
  • I can recall a number of people saying it had a DP2 Foveon like look the images. I can see this myself. I suspect this was due to the good lens design and build. I know of one guy who bought a ...
  • One of the big advantages the GR III has over earlier models is the newer better 24Mp sensor has the ability to lose less pixels if you use the crop mode of 35mm compared to the 16Mp versions. So ...
  • My GR III has never gotten hot either
  • Its a good question, and you likely are right it may never get added. While it would be no small task I'd like to see a create-able ratio.  So that the user can dial up and save any whole number ...
  • this would require either paying the firmware team/writer or if they are on staff directing their time to the job. The engineer in charge stated in a video when interviewed that they did not have ...
  • The problem for me with phones is the speed of controls. If I use a real camera's Exposure compensation lever or wheel it can be changed in possibly under a second. If I want a aperture of f2 or ...
  • They already did a survey already from GR/ GR II users when the GR III design was being considered. The example form was posted here a long time ago. They must want to hear from GR III users this time.
  • They must only want information from real GR III users who have actual experience and  knowledge with the camera to contribute, not guessing from those who have never actually tried it. :-P
  • X100V highly likely for me. I will carry it alongside the excellent GR III. At times I could use the OVF with readouts. I am a film user for 40 odd years and used to OVFs from my OM4 to the Contax ...
  • If you watch this video on the new Leica Monochrom you will gain some insight and understanding that the BW only sensor can yield more information for the print. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4dM ...
  • Well said and added to this, some years back before the GR III went on the design table Ricoh put out a questionnaire to a small select group of Japanese GR users that were invited for opinion. ...
