  • sorry - failed to read your post properly. What you describe does not seem to happen on the GRD
  • On the GRD, you can turn off preview in the settings. Where it has LCD Confirmation TIme, you can set it to OFF.  I would be surprised if this feature was not in the GR.

    'You would be welcome to stay, so the decision is yours.'

    Unfortunately, the decision is certainly not mine, and not really 'ours'. The decision was mainly the UK right-wing tabloid...

  • @BarnET

    It's not just UI, it's ergonomics, too. I've used Panasonic compacts and m43. They don't impress me on either account. I think the more features a camera has the harder it is to make it...

  • @Neodp
    I do think about it a lot, but thanks for the advice. I admit there are manufactures who do ignore end-user's needs. But how many camera companies really go that route? I guess few. What...

  • @BarnET

    your 'many cameras' comment sounds good in theory – but what happens is cameras designed to satisfy everyone become over-burdened with features and become ergonimically/functionally...

  • Aside from talent, France have the added advantage of being in the EU. Britain take note.

  • ''Our goal is to satisfy everyone"

    a recipe for satisfying nobody very well.

  • A new Ricoh wonder camera.  Hard to disagree with that! And back to the Ricoh roots, I hope.
  • Ned, thanks for the info re. GR1.  I hope you enjoy the new camera and that we get to see some photographs taken with it.
  • Looks fantastic. I've fancied owning a 500 series myself, but I've never seen the 519. Gorgeous. What's it like using that special film adavnce lever? Ned – have you had any trouble with the rubber ...
  • Enjoyed this thread. I'm glad it was bought back to life. Using a GRD with a flash is unusual to see, and it's nice to see the different aesthetic afforded by this approach. Interesting stuff from ...
  • OVFs are fantastic for a certain kind of approach to photography but, like you, I wear glasses. I remove them when I use the OVF. (Mine's a voigtlander mini and I also have the larger Ricoh ...
  • There are 2 on Amazon. Full price. £570+ . Makes no sense to me.
  • I think that the point at when the dust may get in is when the lens is open. I gently wipe around the barrel regularly whilst is is open and I always store the GRD in a soft case. After my first ...
  • Good luck. I think the lens and sensor are one unit. I don't think even Ricoh don't clean the sensors. As far as I recall, they simply swap out the lens when there is dirt on the sensor. I can ...
  • As far as I understand you choose snap from the menu. That overrides any half-press or full-press strategies. Half-press is for pre-focus using the contrast detect system. A quick full-press should ...
  • I've only used Photoshop and Lightroom. Never bothered with RAW. High iso. JPG. Standard colour settings. Lightroom -> B&W. There are various presets that work well. High iso works for colour if ...
  • re. The GRII's 'What we don't like'

    Sad to see dpreview still banging on about the lack of upgrades on the GRII. Its predecessor, the GR is not available any more, so how about just taking the...

  • My efforts for nothing?
