  • Thanks!
  • Small world. My wife’s best friend lives right off Bay Road and I always spend time on Pleasant Bay (Jackknife Beach) taking pictures. Yes, September is lovely here. The summer crowds have left. ...
  • Created discussion thread GRIII’s Cape Cod travel log
    We spend every September in Chatham MA (Cape Cod). I brought the GRIII, GRIIIx and GT-2Tele lens to shoot casual photos of our trip. Here’s a quick shot of the Urban Edition (which I received just ...
  • Created discussion thread Morning Light
    View from the porch while enjoying my first cup of coffee. GRIIIx with GT2 at 60mm. Cheers, Ned.
  • Doug, Like you, I've spent time playing with both adapters. I'm finding the GA-2 is more secure versus the Nisi which I can rotate (as you said) quite easily. Obviously due to the design which was ...
  • I’ve been shooting since January with my GRIIIx and the GT-2 tele lens with the contacts on the adapter taped off. To my old eyes the 60mm optical view is very sharp with hardly any vignetting and...

  • As much as I like the look of the Nisi adapter with my GT-2 tele lens, there’s too much play/wobble. As mentioned, the Nisi was designed for filters and I wouldn’t trust if I were out on a photo ...
  • No, it won’t. I believe they’ve only made lens adapters for the GRIII and GRIIIx.
  • Understand what you mean about the GH-3 hood. Fortunately, I’ve got some nice Takumar 49mm metal hoods and they work fine if needed.
  • Agree, it’s nice that I don’t need blue tape to cover up the contacts…as the only way I shoot the GT-2 is at 60mm:)
  • And it came in handy this morning as the storm clouds arrived earlier than I expected on my beach walk:)
  • Created discussion thread Nisi Lens Adapter for GRIIIx
    I posted a review of the Nisi adapter for the GRIIIx on my Instagram feed, if anyone is interested. https://www.instagram.com/p/CdvoGhEuiQo/?igshid=YmMyMTA2M2Y= Cheers, Ned
  • Great colors and composition!
  • Created discussion thread Hong Kong Orchid Macro
    I don't typically use my GR's for flower shots. However, we have a lovely backyard park under the canopy of four large live oaks here in Sarasota. So I will use which ever GR is handy to simply ...
  • Thanks Doug. Yes, it gave me the mood I wanted. Being an old car guy, I probably use Retro more for classic cars than anything else:)
  • Thanks. Same feedback I got from my Instagram post:)
  • Created discussion thread Classic Pontiac with Retro Effect
    I don’t use the Retro Film Effect that often with my Ricoh GRIII or IIIx. But I thought it worked nicely with this classic Pontiac I spotted this morning. Cheers, Ned
  • The new Auto-area AF (Center) option will be a very nice addition. I’ve already updated my GRIII. Next is my GRIIIx. Cheers, Ned
  • This is an old post with a setup I sometimes use. Might be of  interest to you. https://www.instagram.com/p/Bw992o5A2tP/?utm_medium=copy_link
  • The last few days, I’ve been out at dawn shooting by the Causeway and South Lido Beach here in Sarasota. I was in a BW mood, so used HW weighted and then converted the files in-camera to BW. I’ve ...
