  • Created discussion thread A Perfection of Style and Gear
    A Perfection of Style and Gear https://flic.kr/s/aHBqjzCwny I shoot from my lap with my Ricoh GR III 28mm and now more often with the 21mm. The above link has the results. I hope the following ...
  • Created question thread Photolab 5 printing
    It seems there is no way to soft proof in Photolab 5.  In Lightroom I could see two images side-by-side and correct the soft proofed image before printing.  In the print module of Photolab 5 I ...
  • Thanks. I often shoot seated on a bench with the Ricoh in my lap so I cannot see or use the screen. I tried setting the Fn button but must be doing something wrong. If I am in Snap Focus and want ...
  • I usually am set to snap focus but sometimes need quickly to switch to AF.  What is the quickest (fewest spins and clicks) to go from one to the other? Thanks, Ed
  • Created discussion thread shooting while sitting on a bench
    I live near the beach and sit on a bench along a walkway quite often. My Ricoh is in snap focus, a type of zone focusing,  all manual with auto iso. As I see folks approaching I might quickly ...
  • Yes.  I live in La Jolla, a few hundred yards from the beach and those benches. Ed
  • Replied in Nice!
    tko, Many thanks for your kind words. Ed
  • Starny, I do not recall those places.  I lived in Wynnefield and would bike into Lower Merion.  Had many meals at Horn and Hardart, 54th and City Line. Ed
  • I went to Overbrook High and graduated in 1955.  I arm wrestled Wilt many times in the lunchroom.  He graduated in 1956. Ed
  • I am from Philly and spent many days in Atlantic City. My recent Ricoh problem was the lens not extending.  I fixed it with the corner of stiff paper cleaning around  the circular opening.  My ...
  • A few years after buying the Ricoh my lens froze and I needed to send it into Precision Camera for a repair-cleaning.  No sensor dust, however.  When I received the camera from them I added the ...
  • One more thought, and I did this.  Sit in your living room on a dining room chair with the Ricoh in your lap and aim it at, say, a painting on the wall about the height of a person.  Or aim it at ...
  • On the bench the camera is in my lap and it is very difficult to see the screen well, particularly in bright sunny conditions.  Sometimes before a subject comes along I try to glance at the screen ...
  • If you try some bench sitting shooting here are a few more tips.  I shoot day time at around at 1/1000 shutter speed and around f 8.  If someone is moving toward me fast I might quickly up the ...
  • Starny, Thanks for having a look at the photos. I never have had a confrontation because my subjects do not see me taking their photo.  I wear black, have the Ricoh in my lap, and if someone ...
