  • Replied in Bad idea
    You really should cancel the order and if it’s too late for that, return it without even opening the package.
  • The exif data is recorded correctly, nothing else. (I am often too lazy to switch it, not the best way to handle the lens changes) It doesn’t adjust the image in any way or form. I believe in gr3 ...
  • For example here is ONE huge difference between GRIII and all the previous Ricohs- not a speculation but a fact: In the past, Ricoh announced a camera when it was ready. Is the lens as sharp as ...
  • Actually.... The GRD cameras had two types of batteries: DB-60 and 65. So it did get an update at some point. Looking at the new battery I can't see why they had to change the shape: it is not ...
  • Replied in I beg to differ
    That won't happen. Either bad translation or misunderstanding. If that were to be the case, the price wouldn't have dropped this much. They are trying make room for the new camera.
  • Harold, indeed this might be the case, but this particular menu page that James shared doesn’t confirm anything. It just shows available image sizes for selected aspect ratio. 16:9 and 1:1 were ...
  • Replied in grado labs
    here is another one: GM1+Raynox 250. (Silverefex)
  • here is both, stacked :) i had to use my cellphone's flashlight.
  • it's pincushion actually, not barrel but anyhow :) Not only that: it is also softness and magnification issue. I could have done slightly better job with raynox, but you get the idea: they are ...
  • I think you will know which is which. you will need a 49-43mm stepdown ring for raynox 250
  • "...When this is attached, the electronic contact of the camera automatically recognizes, and the lens drive amount, lens optical correction, and camera shake correction at the time of snap focus ...
  • I have the raynox 250 and considered it good until I got gm-1. It’s much better.
  • Well I said ALMOST.  100k yen is $900ish vs $490 GRII currently at Amazon us. Could be different ratios in euro zone or UK.
  • Congrats!! Neither am I judging but nothing here for me that justifies almost double price. if I were shopping for a GR it would have been a simple decision for me: a stop and half (?) advantage ...
  • Thank you for something fresh! this is a relatively expensive GR camera. if I were in the market for a new camera I would grab 2 GRII instead of 1 GRIII. Absolutely without any hesitation.
  • Hi Harold, the site shows a 21mm that looks awfully similar to gw-3 (at least it looks like it has the same cheapo plastic hood) I wonder if that means one less accessory. The mounting diameter ...
  • Waiting is a bit risky: at some point they will simply disappear. I doubt that the price will go further down. Even if it does, by how much? Another $50 off? The alternative is never to find a ...
  • Replied in ISO value
    Before reaching any conclusion it helps to check if GR and Fuji pick the same shutter speed at equivalent ISO and aperture. I am not interested in an inflated ISO number if it doesn't translate to ...
  • Replied in Macro
    Unfortunately sometimes things go wrong. I might have been particularly unlucky. That’s an interesting aspect of GRIII lens: improved macro function. Adapting lenses is always intriguing though: I ...
  • Tennessee State Numismatic Society? and I was almost sure CPA was certified public accountant. All my Ricoh cameras either died on me or developed issues along the way so I will not try to convince ...
