TransientEye's recent activity

  • 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...

  • What utter rubbish. Everything wears out, and the M7 is by far the most usable film M ever made thanks to its accurate metering and shutter plus the AE mode.

  • I get about 100 films per battery change from my M7. If you are used to changing film every 36 frames then carrying a couple of button cells is hardly onerous. The M7 is my most used camera, and...

  • Created discussion thread Architecture with the M10
    A few shots taken in Frankfurt with the M10 and 90mm Elmarit-M. The lens is a bit prone to veiling flair, but surprisingly the combination works quite nicely for architectural subjects. These were ...
  • I have no idea whether or not there will be a new Ricoh announced at Photokina, but at least there will be a significant Ricoh presence at the show - hall 02.2, stand A040. The stand is not as ...
  • I spent several days in Palermo with an EM5 and 12/25/45 prime lens kit. 90% of the images were made with the 25mm, and most of the rest the 12mm. I hate changing lenses, so usually stick with one ...
  • With the digital camera there is almost nothing to worry about. Just set it up for auto-shutter speed and pick a sensible ISO and go explore. You have a great selection of lenses! All except for ...
  • It is far safer to shoot into the sun with an EVF than any optical finder. If anything, optical finders should be subject to safety warnings...
