  • Hi everyone. The seller accepted the return and all is back to normal. Thanks for all your help and advice - I knew something was up. Now where is that GR3?
  • Thanks, this is super helpful. I've sent the clip and am waiting for a reply. Fingers crossed
  • I tried this and yes- it seemed to be on. That's why it was making the constant noise. Thanks! Here's a video of the camera in operation, what do you guys think? https://youtu.be/pWvLwc0dH4w I ...
  • Hi everyone. I just got a used GR Digital IV. It's nice but I've noticed that there are quite a lot of clicking and whirring noises while using the camera. This seems to be from the lens aperture ...
  • Looks cool. But where is the new Ricoh GR?

  • Thank you Olifaunt, I tried working with the white balance and the colours have really come alive. I never knew wb made such an impact!
  • Created discussion thread GR Digital III and IV: Used prices
    Hi everyone, I've noticed that the used prices of the GRD III and IV are fairly high, more so than the newer GR models in some cases. Is there any reason for this? I was curious about whether the ...
  • Created discussion thread Ricoh GR - How to get better colours?
    Hi everyone, I shoot with the Ricoh GR II and love it. Recently I got a GXR+50mm lens and much prefer the colours despite its age. There's something very Leica-like about them. While I understand ...
  • Created discussion thread Slow write times on GR2
    Hi all, My GR has a recurring issue- when I format the memory card everything is snappy but soon afterwards the camera becomes incredibly slow to write images, up to 5/6 seconds I'd say. This also ...
  • Thanks for your reply - I just picked up a gxr with the 50mm module for a great price. Should receive it early next week. As you say, great cameras don't stop taking great pictures once technology ...
  • Hi all, As Ricoh don't currently have a camera with longer focal lengths, can the forum please recommend something small that would complement the GR for portraits? I was looking at Panasonic ...
  • Open to offers for this camera in any condition - looking to pick up a counterpart to my GR 2. UK based and happy to pay for international shipping
  • I remain optimistic. The Sony RX1 body is virtually the same size as the GR2 and yet has a full frame sensor in there. An ASP-H sensor is only marginally larger and certainly nowhere near full ...
  • That worked like a charm- thanks!
  • I think better AF performance is a must given that the GR Digital IV had such a brilliant hybrid system. In general I'd like to see the *return* of many features from the GR Digital series which ...
  • Thank you everyone for your helpful advice. I hadn't realised about the slow focusing of the 50mm, it may be better to find a used GXR with the M Mount module. I enjoy manually operating cameras ...
  • Created discussion thread GXR in this day and age?
    Hi everyone, I really enjoy the photographs I've seen with the GXR and the 50mm lens module. Since I already have a GR2 I was thinking of sourcing one of these camera/module combinations used for ...
  • Hi everyone, I recently got a GR2 and enjoy it so far. However: In the 'DISP. Button Display Setting' menu I can't change anything. The tickboxes and settings are all controlled with the adjustment ...
  • Thank you everyone for your replies. I did use a Nikon D700 (which I have now sold) - way too big, heavy and intimidating for the kind of shots I wanted. Getting close and personal is part of my ...
  • Created discussion thread Ricoh GR 2 for portraits?
    Hi everyone, I've sold all my SLR gear and am now preparing to buy two cameras. One will be a casual, walkaround camera for documenting life that can always be with me. The other will be for more ...
