  • Yes, I opened the RAWs in an external editor (C1). C1 shows the same exposure, shutter, and ISO for all three RAW images in the bracket, but the RAWs (not the camera JPEGs) are successively darker ...
  • I wish this worked on laptop or desktop too. It would let me do in camera raw development on an actually visible screen. But it doesn't work on a laptop, and I don't know why that would be. It's ...
  • Ok, so I think you guys are right. Today I tried something new, namely shooting with DR bracket. So I confirmed that the metadata Ricoh attaches to the file is basically false: In DR bracket the ...
  • I agree. I have found I often get better images by trying to get good OOC jpegs and maybe slightly tweaking them in PP, than by post-processing raws in third party developers. A couple of the ...
  • Thank you both for the tips/tricks.
  • Yes, I often turn the camera off between shots, but the camera remembers my TAv settings almost always. That is almost - except when I especially need it to have remembered it. When I see a people ...
  • Created discussion thread GR ii TAv firmware bug?
    Today was a one in a million for street photography. I got about five almost consecutive perfectly framed images of interesting subjects with great composition. This NEVER happens. But when I ...
  • OK thanks, then I'll trust that the firmware designers knew what they were doing and keep DR compensation on auto for now. (I know how to do underexpose manually and then recover shadows in raw PP ...
  • rawtherapee is very good and free. It has a lot of features that look intimidating but that you can ignore as a starting point. In my opinion its default color rendering and tone curves for the GR ...
  • You probably know this already, but there are several good (IMO) artists/photographers blogging on the web who like using the Ricoh for the HCBW look. There’s Eric Kim and another guy who lives in ...
  • IME one needs a degree in cryptography, and maybe sacrifice a goat, to understand the manual. When I think about it one way, higher ISO does make some sense for high contrast, since IF you need to ...
  • Thanks. Wow. So I wonder why the firmware chooses higher than base ISO in dynamic range compensation mode. Is it simply a bug or is there a justification?
  • Created discussion thread GR ii dynamic range/ISO relationship
    With winter being extremely contrasty here (it’s all blinding light next to black shadows) I’ve been experimenting with auto-dynamic range compensation for better OOC jpegs, esp. in effects I ...
  • Just a thought, I haven't tried this and I don't have the camera with me, but maybe something similar to this could be done in-camera with the manual white balance widget.
  • Very beautiful image. I don't work in black and white but I can certainly appreciate it, and this particular effect on  the Ricoh line is a very interesting look.
  • Dwayne's online materials say the scans are 6MB and 300 dpi, which indicates to me that they don't understand what they are selling, since it tells us precisely nothing about the format and pixel...

  • Agreed regarding snap. As proof of concept, weren’t there several successful (and still very sought after - they go for small fortunes on EBay) 35 mm film point and shoots (in other words, full ...
  • @photoholico, my lab can do a low-res jpeg cheap, I'd say about 1800x1200 only, which is useless for screen display or PP. Labs that can do 4K TIFFS are very expensive around here - they take two...

  • A couple of things occur to me. There  are ways to calculate the shutter speed that should be used (variations of sunny 16) and you can check what speed the camera chooses for those conditions and ...
  • If you set aperture in daylight to something around F/5.6, or even less (you can experiment), pretty much everything at street distances should be in focus given that snap distance. This is ...
