It may sound silly, but taking a selfie with the gr ii is a nightmare. Face recognition only works in auto, that's insane!  When i use AF, i use center focus point and recompose, but when taking a selfie, it's just a matter of hit and miss (hoping to be in center of the frame when focusing, then recompose just to fin out i'm not in focus) So you got any tip of what can i do? Not regarding stoping down the aperture, just in the focusing regard. Thanks

Hello! I am a brand new ricoh gr ii user and love the camera so far. I continue to learn more about it and love the wifi feature that allows me to easily transfer images to my phone with the GR viewer. However, I am noticing that when my photos transfer to my phone through the app (and even with the GR remote URL), there is a definite loss of quality in the photos. They appear sharp on my camera, and sharp on my computer when I connect my SD card to upload them, but when I do it on my phone,...

Hi! I've been shooting with the Ricoh GR ii for a few months and I love it. Great little camera. Lately I've been shooting with BW effect (RAW+) but then I got fed up with having a double sets of files in Lightroom so now I'm shooting RAW only and imitating the lovely BW jpegs with my custom LR profiles. My question is regarding burst/continuous mode. For some reason continuous mode won't work when I have the BW effect enabled. Shooting RAW only. It will only take one photo at the time. As...

Hi, Since I bought my first Ricoh, a GR II, I've been completely in love with the filter Positive. I really like to use this camera especially for that filter, which provides an analog look to my shots and they look so "special and vintage" that I don't need to apply any filter when I upload them on instagram! The question is: do you know by change the tricks for reproducing the effect outside my GR too? I own another system (Olympus) and I would like to try to use it there too, but also...

Hi guys, I recently bought a new Ricoh GR II on what appeared to be a good deal: Ricoh GR II / GV-1 / GH-3 / GW-3 for 699€. After importing a few test shots into LR6 I began to notice some red vignetting in under exposed corners, mostly on bottom left area. Something like described here for the GR I, only not as strong: https://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/3542566 I also tried to develop the raw image in camera and got the same results. Looking to the lens corner's I can see some kind of...

I have been interested in getting a Ricoh GR II for a long time and recently I checked ebay. US prices for used cameras are still really high (not much of a discount from new, retail) but there are plenty of Buy It Now options from Japan. Even with shipping to the US, you are looking at under $200. They look pretty legitimate and from sellers with good feedback history. Any experience with these units?Thanks,David

Hi all, I recently purchased a Ricoh GR II and from the first day sometimes when I push the power button to turn it on, it promptly retracts the lens and turns off.  My thought was that perhaps this  is intended to prevent inadvertent activation like in a pocket or such. However  it doesn't seem consistent in how it reacts. I'm wondering if any other GR II owners here have experienced this.   Thanks in advance. DG
