  • They should've marketed/spec'd this as a mini GH5/G9...

    High-end EVF, Tilt Screen, IBIS, Full Featured Video specs...

  • I would love a Ricoh MILC with built in EVF about the size of GXR with 3 lens; 28, 35, 50. Would pay a pretty penny for that. The M mount, I could take it or leave it, but I get the appeal.
  • Created discussion thread The NEW Ricoh GR PRO
    Let them have their flash-less, simplified Ricoh GR III. I would've preferred the opposite approach (flash w/built EVF), or at the very least something to compliment. No reason we couldn't have both. ...
  • They all have this problem... Since the original x100. One of the biggest problems for anyone shooting candid work. There is also a stutter of the refresh rate, on half-press as well. Funny; ...
  • Nikon, listening?

    Mirrorless Digital FM2.

  • Replied in A Failure
    I agree with you about the X70. A gem of a camera, and the "update" was a joke. Had they fixed the lens, added a snap focus mode (or DOF scale ALA Leica Q), faster AF, IBIS, and a faster refresh ...
  • Replied in A Failure
    Who is screaming or being hysterical? Me think's doth protest too much. I am expressing my displeasure on a PUBLIC forum. Don't like it, you don't have to read it, or respond. If anyone is taking ...
  • Replied in A Failure
    If you can't see how a tilt-screen folded out and smartphone in your hand have similar maneuverability for the application of a touch UI, I won't waste my breath. Exactly. Listen, your argument ...
  • Replied in A Failure
    A few other things I will add: They have "consumerized" the interface, presumably to broaden the appeal and its market. They have added a touchscreen, also to broaden the appeal, yet they didn't ...
  • Well, the lens has one less element, so that is not a good sign.
  • It means they acknowledge the new GR is a simplified, more point-and-shoot variety, of the original GR line. And that they think by continuing to manufacture and sell the GRII alongside the new GR ...
  • Replied in A Failure
    Obviously, you've never seen the Ricoh GRD... But my point is; they have simplified the camera to be more of a compact-point-and-shoot and gone the opposite direction. As far as the RX series is ...
  • Replied in A Failure
    Let us look at other cameras for examples. The touch screen should not supplant a unique set of physical controls, of which the Ricoh GR had maybe the best operation of any compact camera. The ...
  • I agree... they are stripping the GR down to a point-and-shoot with a large sensor, similar to what Fuji did with the X70 line. This camera won't sell well, and that will be the end of the Ricoh ...
  • Replied in A Failure
    I don't know... It don't see why you would even think of making a camera more like a simple-point-and-shoot camera in 2018. Point-and-shoots are dead, phones have swallowed that market. The only ...
  • Replied in A Failure
    And another thing botched... No 4:3 image ratio... Why?! I just don't get it.
  • Replied in A Failure
    I won't argue that it does or does not meet your requirements. But I will take exception with the statement "will probably be easier to use one-handed". How does eliminating buttons (especially ...
  • Replied in A Failure
    Unfortunately, I might have to agree with you... Because I can't really explain the "redesign" any other way. They should've gone the other direction, and made the device more premium, ALA Sony's ...
  • Created discussion thread A Failure
    Perhaps, I am in the minority, but the new Ricoh GR prototype is a complete failure. They've gutted the familiarity of the camera and the controls, with little to no added functionality ...
  • Wow...

    This camera is a failure. I am actually flabbergasted. They've taken my favorite camera line and f-ed it beyond belief...

    They removed TaV mode, function buttons, exposure rocker,...
