  • Thank you, yes, I suppose it is just the mechanical shutter that sounds louder to me than before. For a while, though, it was so quiet that I wasn't sure sometimes if I had actually taken the ...
  • Yes, I have the same problem. I could swear I had it pretty almost completely silent for a few weeks. Now it makes a click that is quite audible and indiscreet - I basically have been unable to use ...
  • Thanks for the tip. I'm on a Windows machine but I'll check my drivers for updates. I kind of have a suspicion it might be an interaction with Google Drive, which runs a realtime backup.
  • Replied in Caveat emptor
    I know what it is like wo king for a company wiith rumors flying around about your division's demise, so I can relate to the seemingly low morale out of Ricoh. Those rumors are usually true... But ...
  • Thank you, Tom, COne started running fine again today without my doing anything to it, but I'm saving your instructions for when it happens again.
  • Created discussion thread C1 database check and repair failures
    Does anyone know what recourse there is when the C1 database fails on launch? I have made extensive edits to hundreds of photos in the past few days, and now suddenly when I launch the application ...
  • It is certainly a minority camera, but I have to say that I have been impressed with the speed and quality of responses wnen I have asked for advice here. But also, a lot of info is out there ...
  • Oh yes, you are right. You get considerable more fine detail even just opening the raw and saving it as JPEG with no edits (and zero sharpening) using the utility on the accompanying CD. The ...
  • It is a very good point and yes, someone kindly did this for me for C1. i like the resulting profile and it is superior for some photos but stability in certain parts of the gamut still seems ...
  • You have a point, haha, I should know better; I contributed to that when I bought mine during their sale earlier this summer. They do have a good price point compared to the Fuji X100 series, ...
  • They are paying an opportunity cost the longer they postpone it (assuming it is not killed), losing more potential customers to the better cellphones on the one end and the X100 type cameras on ...
  • One limit i have encountered with my GR is I can't get good street photos of moving subjects once the sun starts going down. Better high ISO would be at the top of my wish list.
  • I agree with most but disagree about the JPEG engine. On one hand it is a matter of subjective taste, but objectively I keep running into cases where Lightroom, C1, or DxO, are wildly off on a ...
  • My battery lasts quite long, so maybe you got a bad one.. I second the AF. I don't see a pressing need for more than 16 MP though I wouldn't refuse it, but a faster lens would be nice (i.e., lower ...
  • 8.0.11.0 is the version I have that has the problem. Maybe they reintroduced the bug I'm encountering with this fix... Output to AdobeRGB is also flattened, as is output to sRGB. My display gamut ...
  • I found DxO superior to C1 in various ways on a variety of shots, especially detail and natural rendition of uneven skin is easy with it (I like character shots, not models, haha),  but eventually ...
  • But which secondary product I wonder... Silkypix, as well as DxO and C1, are all set to be color-managed using the display profile. They all display imported jpegs correctly inside themselves (as ...
  • Firefox with color-management turned on (as already mentioned) or Windows Photo Viewer. It is in the installation but not enabled by default - you can google how to enable it; it requires a ...
  • To make sure, I am using DxO Pro and Capture One to view the exported JPEG. Both agree that the JPEG exported from Silkypix is washed out and doesn't look like the edited raw displayed by SIlkypix ...
  • Created discussion thread SilkyPix JPEG export loses contrast
    I have been trialing Silkypix Developer Studio 8 and am running into a strange problem. Exported JPEGS are washed out (lower contrast and the black point seems different) compared to the raw files ...
