  • If you enjoy using the Q and like its interface, I think you would love the GR (II). It is a wonderful little camera. If you want primarily wide angle for vacation and pocketing for activities, it ...
  • Replied in It lives!!
    Okay one more update, in case anyone possibly cares! My camera is working, but no amount of charging will get the date and time to store between turning camera off and on. Guess that small internal ...
  • It's lovely, Ned. Congrats and enjoy!
  • Coming from someone who has learned lessons from overpacking both clothing and cameras -- I would take a max of two cameras. Given the ones you mentioned, I would pick the GRD4 and FZ1000. Even if ...
  • Yeah, I was going to deal with the resetting of date/time, but now it is being fussy again and won't reliably turn on. And how long must I continue the daily swapping and charging of batteries? ...
  • Oh, and I think one of the things the internal battery controls is the On/Off switch, if you can believe that! Is that even possible?
  • Yes, there is some funky a$$ stuff going on with the internal battery, but I cannot make sense of it. My first strategy was to keep charging and replacing batteries daily, turning camera on and ...
  • Tom, he was banned from the site and all of his threads or posts in other threads were completely deleted. Not defending his behavior, but his insight about the GRD1 (and how it differed to later ...
  • And here is where we regret that DPR completely deleted every post by photographer Michael Penn, who continued to use the GRD1 and achieved great results, and may still use it now. He used other ...

    Very funny, this thread is definitely old. BUT -- My camera is not dead and no longer demanding a date and time reset after short periods of inactivity!! It is quite fine and happy. I will keep ...
  • Yes, there is something quite nice about the Q. I like the 01 and 06 paired with the original body and don't mind the smaller sensor. When I purchased, I compared the 01 prime with the 02 and ...
  • After my last post, had tested many times, let camera sit, switched batteries around, recharged batteries, switched batteries again, etc, to no avail. And so through the winter season, the Q was ...
  • My favorite is #3. I like the hairy look of the spider and its long legs with the softness of the evergreen or fern. The soft coloring is lovely, too. All of the images in this set are ...
  • As with all things Ricoh, I believe it when I see it and don't bother thinking about it otherwise.
  • Yeah, phases of life can put one in a distracted state. A very normal thing. Yes, I do use special interests as subjects for photographs. It's quite helpful and expands the enjoyment of both. But ...
  • My state of mind seems to have an impact on my ability to be present in the environment and notice things. If one is not alert, curious or aware of their surroundings, it's difficult to take ...
  • Thank you!
  • For the less experienced, would you mind explaining what this conversion lens does? Does it change the focal length as well as provide macro capabilities? Thanks!
  • I also have no idea what the forum rules are as far as resolving disputes or dealing with ill behavior, so I guess it would be good to check. But I am disappointed that all good information Mike ...
  • What in the world? Think I've deduced which Unknown member, and that's a shame. Definitely a lot of helpful Ricoh camera info gone. Can't imagine their wanting that, even if they were tired of site.
