Hello. We have just bought Ricoh GR II in Hong Kong, camera shop in Times Sq, Causeway Bay. Few hours later we noticed that IMEI on receipt is not exactly the same as serial number on the camera (and the box, and additional Hong Kong one month free warranty service document). IMEI number on receipt and serial number on warranty document are the same, but numbers on the camera and the box have one digit less (they don't have last digit that previous numbers have). So basically, on the camera...

Hi! I've been using Ricoh GR II for a couple of months now, the image quality are great but there is one frustrating problem i had just recently. Does anybody feels like the exposure reading/metering on Ricoh GR a bit odd? I was taking pictures with another camera (Sony A6000) and comparing it with Ricoh GR with the same lighting condition, the Ricoh GR tends to read the scene less sensitive. With the sony i was able to take the pictures in 1/1000 s, but with the Ricoh to achieve the same...

Hi! I found these presets which will maybe partially solve my issue in having pictures similar to the Ricoh amazing Positive Film emulation (similar to kodachrome 64) when I am not using my GR II (I mostly shot with my lovely E-M5 II): https://www.gavingough.com/store/kodachrome Did someone already try them? Any feedback? Thanks in advance! Fabio

Hi All, I have a Ricoh GR II that is barely used... maybe 150 snaps. Love it but one day the shutter release stoped working and now it will not snap a shot when I press the shutter release? All other functions seem to be working fine. All menu options back screen etc. The camera is in great shape never dropped, well taken care of. I contacted Ricoh service and the cam is outside of the one year warranty. There is a minimum of like $175 to have it looked at. I have looked through all the...

Lots of people and reviewers have said that this camera does not focus well (i.e. slow focus acquisition, hunting, in correct focus, etc) in low light.  I would appreciate if people with this experience explain what they mean by low light.  You can either express it in EV numbers or as an exposure setting e.g. f2.8 at 1/30sec at 400 iso.  Intended use is mainly in art galleries, and static scenes, i.e. I'm not chasing kids or pets around, in a low light family room :) I'm aware of focus...

Back in the last century I used the GR 1 quite a bit and liked the handling, size and image quality. I'm considering a GR ii for travel to Cuba and Europe this summer. I've done a lot of research on the user sites and the only thing that bothers me a bit is the color palette from the GR ii. Most of the images I see online seem overly contrasty with deeply saturated colors and dense, moody blacks. Is this just a case of setting the output to individual taste by street shooters? I like the...

When I was cleaning the lens on the gr ii, I was using a cleaning cloth and wiping the lens. I tried not to be rough but when I was slightly pushing the lens trying to clean it, I felt a click and felt I pushed the lens mechanism inward slightly. When I tried to power the camera on and off, everything was fine and there was no problem with the auto focus either. Anyone come across this situation before? Did I damage anything in the camera? Thanks for reading.
