  • Thank you for your kind comment.  I forgot to mention it was taken with a Rollei 35S (40 mm), the Singapore version I had back then.
  • Thank you for your thoughtful reply, Gourownway. I am just getting back into 35mm film for the first time in about 25 years. It has taken me nearly six weeks to almost finish shooting a roll of ...
  • Not sure I understand what you are saying? Do you not like analog cameras?  :-O https://www.metmuseum.org/about-the-met/collection-areas/photographs
  • The market is too small unfortunately and the physics of making a lens small enough is either impossible or too expensive at this time. (Except for a gov't with a big military budget.) Sigma ...
  • Completely agree!  Once I add something other than a lens cap it is no longer a pocketable camera.  The other day I went out with my GRIIIx as my pocketable camera, quick access.  In my shoulder ...
  • I was replying to the thread not you. Rick, you see red way too often when you post.  Try and relax sometimes. It was a suggestion for the OP.
  • Perhaps you have already seen this lens cap. I would consider using one when your camera comes back. I've been using it on both my GRs for a while now. Hardly changes the camera profile. https://ww ...
  • Very nice!  I would be delighted if I could create such an artistic photo!
  • That was my error, I was intending to reply to the thread in general, not specifically with what you wrote.  I found what you had to say clear and helpful as well.  I just wanted to add to the ...
  • Oh, I think you started a very good thread!  Thumbs up from me!  "Snap Distance Priority" is a firmware update and there is not much out there on it and it is not in the operating manual. When it ...
  • It's because your wrote, "I have two main shooting modes on the GR. One is a daytime 'street' mode, with snap priority at 3.5 or 2.5 metres and DOF 3, ISO at 1600..." With a setting of DOF 3 I see ...
  • I'll give it another try as it seems there is a misunderstanding of what the "Snap Distance Priority" function on the GRIII and GRIIIx is all about. This is simply a "Zone Focus" function best ...
  • Thank you for your reply.  I appreciate that you and Jazz1 have shared your experiences.  It is was it is and we have no control over monopolistic business practices.  Doesn't apply to only camera ...
  • Interval shooting!  I have yet to have an occasion for using that setting!  What a great photo.
  • I notice that one of your favorite settings is to use "Snap Distance Priority" DOF 3.  Play with it in DOF 1 and you will find that it selects a faster shutter speed as the camera selects a wider ...
  • Roger, did Precision provide you with a line item quote on the repair, ie. parts and labor? Is Precision a monopoly in the USA?  Is there not somewhere else that a camera repair can be made if it ...
  • Fortunately, you didn't get hurt and that's the most important thing.  As for the repair, double check the warranty coverage you might have for accidental damage under the credit card you used to ...
  • Oh, I didn't mean to imply that you were not familiar with 3:2 or the days of film cameras.  Excuse me for that.  I was aware that you started back in the day when we all had film cameras. And I ...
  • Absolutely, a fixed lens camera is fantastic, so long as it is pocketable.  Great for walking around and doing street photography, but it's not ideal to go on vacation with only one focale ...
  • Since the X100V won't fit in my pocket I opted to get the Pany GX85 with the 12 - 32mm & 45 - 150mm lenses.  Add to that, the Leica 8 - 18mm lens and the price difference was only an additional ...
