  • I have two GRII cameras. they both sound identical. I am pretty much sure that they have sounded the same way all along. The setup menu has two sound related settings: "operation sounds" where you ...
  • Replied in p.s.
    I see no dust on this shot. I rotated this, overlapped both, and increased the contrast and sharpness to catch it, and I don't see it. This is only a stop wider and I would think I could have ...
  • I believe it may be simpler than that. wouldn't such a system require extra camera depth? and also extra cost? Of course there is no excuse for sensor dust from day one. I am not aware of any ...
  • If it is the result of "normal use" and within warranty period, I am pretty much sure it is. Please check this with Precision. They will probably tell you that they will need to see it first. Not ...
  • Replied in sticky shutters
    Yes but that's very different. The lens barrel moves in and out without any problem. The problem is with the sticky shutter blades inside the lens unit. In GR, similar to aperture blades, the ...
  • @georgievv, True, I wasn't clear enough in my initial comment. I would like to direct you to other projects that I consider much more successful in that regard:...

  • Sorry that your comment got deleted. Probably It coincided with my editing, because I wanted to add that I watched the video.
    Unfortunately, after watching this introductory video, I thought that...

  • GRII is a two year old model, so I would think that we would have heard about it by now. This is a lens unit problem and my guess is that these are lens units from an early batch. I am sure Ricoh ...
  • Sorry to hear that. If it helps at all, I never heard of a GRII with this problem. By the way, my GR died the same way as yours (it was less than two years old with 10K shutter count) and went for ...

    n/t
  • That's what I would do: Turn the self timer on. Half press to focus at any object at arm's length and full press to take the shot with the self timer on (custom 3 secs or whatever you think it's ...
  • Why not use Ricoh's web-based Remote utility? It should work for file transferring too http://www.ricoh-imaging.co.jp/english/products/gr_remote/app/latest-appcache/index.html
  • At ricoh forum, everyday is TBT.
  • thanks. a multi billion dollar corporation using startup tactics? :) that should be fun :)
  • The clip shows the camera working. You were not even sure if the sounds it made were normal or not. If you want to make a stronger case for your claim,  I suggest you submit a clip from a properly ...
  • Oh well, I think my appreciation of GXR was in my post... rondom wrote: Then with the digital era, they offered bunch of point and shoots, and then a very innovative, daring and short lived ...
  • I'm aware of all those. If it weren't for the GR lens and GR series cameras, nobody would be talking about Ricoh cameras today.
  • Grinding sounds bad. I may be wrong but it looked to me like the lens was failing to retract at first, and that's what makes the grinding noise. As the retraction starts, it's sounds normal. I ...
  • Ricoh is no longer a camera maker. And maybe actually they never were. GR is simply a homage to Ricoh's own history of the film GR, which also was an exception to begin with. What else did Ricoh ...
  • Replied in ISO rating
    Now, you're taking it to a completely new level: I never heard of camera makers manipulating shutter speed and actual aperture values to make their high ISO performance look good. I would say this ...
