  • They are a mix. Aside from the 21mm SEM, most of my lenses have a lot of vignetting which is obvious either when shot with lens ID detection disabled or when used wide open with an ND filter ...
  • The sensor is perfectly fine for general photography - where it lacks is only in comparison to other cameras (including some recent "budget" FF cameras). However, shooting wide-angle lenses with ...
  • I would not draw that conclusion relative to other makes of camera, but what I will point out is that my M10 in 'auto' chooses a shutter speed that is about 2/3 stop slower than either either an M ...
  • Yes, pretty much all modern digital cameras have plenty of dynamic range at lower ISOs now - way more than can be displayed on most screens or in print. However, the M10’s metering when using the ...
  • Yes, these use quite a high black point (and several were shot with polarising filters to increase saturation and contrast). One of the nice things with raw is that you can edit to taste.
  • Created user review thread A Leica M10 Review
    After more than a year of use of the M10, I finally got around to writing a lengthy user-review ( which you can read here ). In summary, it is clearly the best digital Leica ever, and probably the ...
  • More trolling. If you look at my web site you will see no test shots for cameras. You will see multi-year projects shot on a range of equipment, a good chunk of it shot the GR. This is a forum ...
  • Reading some of you talk about cameras is funny. Makes me wonder if you photographers or collect cameras. http://transienteye.com dpreview is a gear review site, not a photo forum.
  • I'll bite, since I have used both Olympus with the 12mm and the GR and GR II for street photography. The bottom line is that the image quality from the Ricoh is substantially better than from u4/3. ...
  • The catch is that you also need a practical way to recharge them. PhotographyBlog reported only 140 images and a single short video before the battery was exhausted. That means I would want at ...
  • I can not agree with this enough. I shoot my GR II almost exclusively in manual focus with a back button assigned to AFC, which I use to quickly update the zone focus distance when shooting on the ...
  • This was probably my most unusual image in 2018. It is a blend of processed IR and normal light shot with the M10 and 35mm Summilux. There is a description of the processing here .
  • Having used both of the most recent GR versions I have not found any difference in image quality at all. Other than WiFi (which, with the tiny battery is largely pointless) the only reason to ...
  • I certainly have found the GR's built-in flash useful on many occasions. I hope that Ricoh will at least provide a small hot-shoe mounted alternative, along the lines of the Olympus bundled flashes ...
  • Created discussion thread Botanic
    Some shots from the Royal Botanic Gardens in Madrid. All M10 with 50mm Summilux.
  • Created discussion thread Marching
    Some shots from the Peope's Vote march in London last week - all M10 with 50mm Summilux.
  • I will definitely second this. I bought my M7 from Ffordes and they have always been honest, straightforward and sensibly priced. I really hope that they can recover the equipment and bring the...

  • Yes - just not very well. My original APSC GR had terrible problems with dust, and I opened it up several times to clear the sensor. There was a push-fit rubber gasket that supposedly protected the...

  • If it has sensor-shift stabilisation, there is a good chance that there will also be some form of automatic sensor cleaning - not that it should be needed with the sealing!

    Looks like a compelling...
