  • When the camera is angled upwards, you will find the buildings tend to lean in. You did this to get the tops of the buildings into the shot, so it is pretty inevitable - but you can correct in ...
  • Created discussion thread GR3 lens adapter
    Being in possession of various 49mm filters I thought I would buy the Ricoh adapter but hesitated at the cost. I recently found a 3rd party one made by Haoge on Amazon for just over half the ...
  • I am also a keen Fuji fan but sold my X70 to get the GR3.  I got a very good PX price and also felt a bit guilty about keeping it.  The X70 is a lovely camera but I doubt it would be getting that ...
  • The GRiii is just as capable as my Fuji kit and being so much more portable, I also  carry it on country walks. It is also great for insect shots.
  • Very nice macro shot.
  • Agree that macro capabilty of the GRiii is excellent.  I remember that the GX100 was also strong in this department Ladybird on Borage plant
  • I will be interested to know whether the Metz works for you because it did not for me.  I just got a partially illuminated image and the shutter did not appear to synchonise.  I sent it back and ...
  • Beauty is in the eye of the beholder! I like the subject off centre and quite like the chimney which seems to balance the picture. I also enjoy the flowers, so I would not frame it that ...
  • Like the subject, colours, composition and back to front sharpness
  • Well after looking very carefully I can not see any vertical stripes even viewed at 100%.  I can see some light stripes on a couple of the uprights which are maybe chromatic aberration caused by ...
  • I have looked very hard and can not see anything which should not be there!
  • Maybe sailing close to the wind, in these days when any utterance can be subject to interpretation other than that intended. I understand why it all happened but I do not like to see works of art ...
  • I also very much like the colours. A gloomy day it may have been , but it shows that no weather is really too bad for good photography.
  • Quite a commentary on contemporary events. We enjoyed a trip to Richmond a few years ago and much enjoyed the sights including this one, but I find its recent transformaton to be very sad.
  • A broad elastic band is very effective when you have removed it put the faintest sphere of vaseline on the thread.
  • An interesting point of view. These days most new cameras show only an incremental improvement over their predecessors and you have to decide whether those small improvements will make a real ...
  • Replied in Another link
    A useful link -  but you only get free shipping to the UK if you are prepared to wait for 20-40 days - otherwise the shipping cost added to the purchase price is much the same as buying the Ricoh ...
  • Mine was the same so I returned it. I particularly wanted  to use the wide end. I have since purchased a 16-55 with which I am more than happy.
  • Love the first and third. Are you using one of the BW presets or were they converted from colour? I think they are pretty unusual and striking images.
  • I am afraid it is another vote for keeping the GRiii at least for a bit longer. I traded in my X70 for a GRiii a couple of months ago and have not regretted it as it fulfills my main requirement ...
