  • That is one good way of help preventing dust getting onto the sensor. For my GRDI and also Ricoh Caplio R3 I use their original slim leather cases. Works well enough for most of the time.
  • If everything is the way it use to be, Ricoh is gonna stick to their two-year interval of release of new GR compacts. Which means that there is still one year left before we may expect a GRIII, in ...
  • Unfortunately the answer is yes. I've no GR or GRII myself but have read about others with GR and GRII which have or have had problem with dust. If the GR collect sensor dust you can at least send ...
  • My first digital camera was the Nikon Coolpix 700 which I bought in 2000, I think it was. A pretty good camera then with a fixed focal length of equivalent 35mm. Much have happened since then.

  • Same as for me. Ricoh needs to get their act together there. Really, how hard could it be for them I wonder. The original Ricoh Caplio GX/GX8 which only had a single zoom-barrel have had no ...
  • Announced in 2005 around the same time as the original Ricoh GRD. The R3 is much the same as the GRD in jpeg processing and very little NR. Only 5mp on a 1/2.5" ccd sensor and a 28-200mm, 3.3-4.8, ...
  • GRDI http://ebay.de/itm/Ricoh-GR-Digital-8-1-MP-Digitalkamera-Schwarz-/291827840456?hash=item43f24b75c8:g:5eIAAOSw7s5XhjMP Ricoh Caplio R30. The little brother of the very good R3, with somewhat ...
  • While it is not much of an upgrade, at least it is better than no upgrade at all. Seems like Leica have something to learn from Ricoh, the way they support their GR cameras over a two-year period...

  • Ricoh Caplio R40. http://ebay.com/itm/Ricoh-Caplio-R40-Digitalkamera-/152176156485?hash=item236e67df45:g:kgEAAOSwj2dXkSnO Ricoh Caplio R5 ...
  • Interesting and a good guide for these which have the GR or GRII , when the cameras have run out of the two-year warranty. If the camera is still within warranty I would surely advise them sending ...
  • It may have taken quite a while but finally Fujifilm offered to replace the sensor with a new modified version which seems to have solved the problem with Orbs. ...
  • Actually it is the manufacturers like Sony, Nikon and Canon which are worthless when it comes to firmware updates, to support their existing cameras. Sony doesn't even seem to care about firmware ...
  • May I ask how do you find the image quality that the WG-M2 is capable of? Asking this as I've not managed to find some real reviews of it yet.
  • RIP M.R

  • Although I've not heard anything I hope that the rumour is true. Would be nice with some replacement to the GX100, GX200 and GXR S10.
  • I've recently bought another R3 as my current one have got bad in the way that it now only uses the slow ccd-AF at the long end of the zoom.
    I'm looking to maybe add a R5 as well. These two seems...

  • "Enter Panasonic, a company with a long history of making travel zoom cameras. In fact, the company made what many would consider the first one: the DMC-TZ1, way back in 2006."

    I don't quite agree...

  • Commented on article Leica Q In-depth Review

    While I surely may agree about that I'll also mention that that these cameras are more different than one may think.
    Q have fast lens and FF sensor but looks somewhat big and bulky - Coolpix A, GR...

  • For sure. As for the Leica X1 which now has come down in price and you can get one in reasonable condition at a fair used price imo. The AF was slow when it was new and some time after it had had ...
  • This is not the only forum-section which would need to be renamed. Canon Powershot talk, Fujifilm Finepix talk and  Sony Cyber-shot talk would be renamed as well then to make it straight. I believe ...
