  • I admit, I would love to have my photos stolen, if this is what the punishment looks like.

  • Hard to guess. So many factors, so many settings: Manual, aperture priority, shutter priority, program modes? Auto ISO? The menu can be overwhelming. I think as a start, it may be appropriate for ...
  • About 3-4 stops of difference About 1 stop of difference That’s more than a little odd, especially for the first shot. What do the GR3 pictures look like? Shutter readings aside, if the pictures ...
  • TN, i don’t know what to say about your GRD. I am almost certain that this is not the case with GR: When you send a GR for dust cleaning you don’t get a new lens and a sensor. The sensor-lens unit ...
  • I think your analogy might not be the best one, but you can convince me otherwise. I’m not familiar with cars (and I understand that you are) but I would think that all defects are not equally ...
  • Obviously not valid for refurbished products but... In US camera retailers used to offer an extended warranty plan for a modest cost during the purchase. I don’t see it anymore. i found this instead. ...
  • https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/63641177 (I suggest you read all the way through)
  • I’m sure one of these days someone will disassemble their GRIII and share it on the net. Until then it will be difficult to know how easy is to service griii (my guess is it will be more ...
  • sorry to hear Unless Ricoh has changed their policy, all European repairs, including the UK used to be handled by Maerz located in Hamburg. The fix will be cheaper than the new one, but not as ...
  • Just wondering: do you happen to know how much Precision is charging for sensor cleaning?
  • Sorry to hear, as everyone said, you’re not overreacting. When you said you’ve talked to Ricoh: is that Ricoh or Ricoh’s certified repair center? If it’s Ricoh, then you need to react further more. ...
  • except that these days even the lamest cellphone has the option for multiple aspects ratios. I don't think there is point in competing with cellphones. A Phone can become your "more than able" ...
  • Replied in excellent!
    excellent composition: by that I mean, building looks like a fence in front of the flowers- how you compose a page is as important as how you compose a frame!
  • it’s probably a very small (and rather secretive) group of designers who develop the camera, and you’ve got these employees with misleading corporate titles.
  • or “I don’t know”
  • Replied in Price maybe?
    Maybe one good indication of good reception is the price of gr3. a few months after gr2 was launched, Ricoh dropped the price significantly, which didn’t happen with gr3. Tungsten Nordstein wrote: ...
  • Very nicely documented.
  • not really, never used anything other than 3:2 in my life. It is based on the ratio of 35mm film and that's what I've been shooting for the last 35 years. So there is nothing to be missed. nobody ...
  • Replied in purism...not.
    he talks about 3:2 being the ratio of the sensor and other aspect ratio being attainable during p/p. if that was the logic behind omitting other aspect ratios, why did they keep 1:1? Makes no ...
  • Is that gasket for dust or to prevent light leakage? Wonder if anyone has tried to get rid of it altogether.
