  • One thing to note here is that shake reduction will be less effective since you don't get Wide setting activation from GW-3. IBIS needs to know focal length of the lens so it knows how much to ...
  • It's a bit tricky, yes. The workflow I get most reliable results with on Pixel 3, once the phone is paired: (1) Turn WiFi on the camera (2) Connect the phone to the camera WiFi, ...
  • As far as I can tell, there is no beep when turning the camera on, regardless of sound settings. However, what you might be hearing could potentially also be the ultrasonic sensor cleaning, that ...
  • This is the other way around. It's great that Ricoh is improving GR series with firmware updates. Some (most?) manufactures never bother with updates - if you want improved functionality, you have ...
  • I second this. Auro Area AF on this thing is pretty bad, unless it can detect the face.
  • Replied in GR plus what
    Yeah, that's the thing. I will always debate if I need to take ILC camera with me. But GR III, there's nod discussion. I seriously take it with me to grocery stores, because, you never know, what ...
  • Replied in GR plus what
    I primarily bought GR to be used by itself. But then I realized how nice it is as a second body. ;-) It seems like I'll go against the grain, but especially on hikes, I'd often take Pentax KP with ...
  • That's a tricky question. ;-) My personal settings are usually: Fn is set to do Select AF focus, Shutter is set to do AF+AE lock (default), Drive is set to ->MF. FPS is enabled and primed at ...
  • That will do it. ;-) Yep, as is discussed in another thread, this is my main reason for not relying on Fn button only for focus. With that said, I still keep Fn button assigned to AF and have it ...
  • Well, the filter works, obviously. Other than that, I haven't been very successful so far. I am not able to set custom WB on the camera with r72, I just get "Data process failed" every time. But ...
  • As he said. GA-1 has 49mm filter thread, that will accept any standard filter, as well as GW-4 wide conversion lens. I used it before for CPL filter. It does provide some extra seal against dust, ...
  • What I find interesting is how many people are baffled by the lack of TAv mode. People try to use Av and minimum shutter speed in ISO settings and complain that TAv is gone. Of course it's not - M ...
  • Couldn't wait, and since I already have the lens adapter, I just ordered Hoya r72 @ 49mm. We'll see how that works. ;-)
  • Just a follow up, Samuel answered my question on youtube: So I don't think you can have FPS and back button focus at the same time, at least with current firmware.
  • Replied in DR
    Or people can learn to take photos and not need huge zoom to correct their mistakes.:-P
  • You know you can set Fn button so that it performs different type of focus than shutter half press? I have mine set to always do Select AF. So regardless of what focus mode I am in, I can always ...
  • I noticed this too, and it's pretty annoying. Fully manual mode will try to preview the exposure on the LCD, so when you shoot with manual flash, and there's not much ambient light, you won't see ...
  • Yes. I also noticed that the override holds as long as you keep the Fn (BBF as you call it) pressed, even if you take photos in between. So you can focus once, and then keep the focus lock over ...
  • I change my settings a lot, but for what it's worth. 2m in Av or M mode with f/8. Gives you across the field sharpness all the way to infinity. If it's dark and I need to drop aperture, I may ...
  • Yes. This is one thing I love about using Fn button to focus. You'll get distance scale every time you press it. Not sure if I understand correctly. Yes, you can use Fn button to focus while still ...
