  • I'm very much a minimalist when it comes to any type of case for my GR's. I'll either just wrap the camera in a micro fiber cloth before pocketing the GR. Bonus is you have a cleaning cloth with ...
  • What? From all my visits to Tokyo, I thought it was mandatory you have a smartphone:) Ned
  • Created discussion thread Smaller is better
    It's a little slow here, so thought I'd post a photo of a GR taken with another GR, and a post I did about smaller sometimes being better. Cheers, Ned
  • I did a mini review of the Fujifilm X70 vs my Ricoh GR which The Online Photographer published in April. Thought it might be of some interest to you if you're considering the X70. http://theonlinep ...
  • Thanks, it took awhile to find one this nice. Hope to start shooting with it next week.
  • I thought so as well!
  • Tungsten, The Triggermatic advance is actually comfortable in your hand with a very smooth action. I had an M2 Leicavit, and although the advance is hidden in the base when not in use, from what I ...
  • Created discussion thread My new Ricoh Rangefinder
    While I have both the GR-1v and GR21 film cameras, a GXR with M mount, a GRD IV and a few copies of both the GR I and II, I saw a beautiful Ricoh 500 series rangefinder (circa 1957-1959) in Japan ...
  • Nice series, John. Love the colors. The 50 1.4 has always been a favorite lens of mine, though I think it's been under appreciated. Seeing how it performs with the K1, and its relatively low ...
  • Nice series, Jack. Glad to see you're enjoying your GR. Do you have the K-1 yet? Ned
  • Replied in Purple Iris
    Joe, I'm not sure getting closer would help. I think the light would be more intense and not as natural looking as you've achieved with the 200mm. There probably is more ambient light hitting the ...
  • Replied in Purple Iris
    Beautiful tones and colors, Joe!
  • The GH-3 adapter uses a 49mm filter. Here's a photo showing the adapter with filter. The hood slips on over this and works fine.
  • Joe, I certainly know the drill for the unboxing ritual. However, I didn't think it applied to accessories:) Thanks, it'll be nice to use this on the K-1. Ned
  • Exactly, looking forward to shooting with it again.
  • I've been shooting almost exclusively with the Ricoh GR for the past 3 yrs, so I spend a little more time on that forum. But with the K-1 launch, it might be time to dust off my three amigos:)
  • Created discussion thread FA* 200 F/2.8 "now" ready for K-1
    I thought a few of you would enjoy this little story about the effort I went through to get the lens ready for the K-1. Cheers, Ned
  • Many of us have Michael to thank for providing lucid commentary on how to embrace and coax the most out of our digital photography during its formative years. He'll be sorely missed, but his...

  • Hi Lena, TOP recently published my observations comparing the X70 and the GR, after shooting with the X70 for two months. It might be helpful to you in making your decision. http://theonlinephotogr ...
  • Hi Nick, Although I've been shooting almost exclusively with the Ricoh GR the past three years, I really want to see how my FA 31, 77, Asahi SMC f/1.2 50 and a few Takumars perform with the K-1. ...
