An integrated evf and articulating lcd screen are overdue. And, of course, the dust issue sucks but let's not overlook dead pixels. I don't think so. They should have recognised this problem and make it weather-proof. That would be excellent. Meanwhile, one have two choices to prevent dust from getting into the lens. One is to attach a stick-on UV filter over the front of the lens. However, a stick-on UV filter is not easily available. The other solution is to attach the wide angle lens adaptor tube to the lens and attach a normal screw-on UV filter on it.
This will help prevent dust from entering the front of the lens. The main problem with this method is the camera would be less "pocketable". The bright side is one is able to attach the 21mm wide angle adaptor lens more readily. To begin with, the GR II should not have been sold at a higher price.
If they could have made the camera dust-proof and weather-proof beside including wi-fi then a price increase would be justified. By contract that sensor could be used by other companies six months after the Sony A announcement. The delay of the A release also changed their product roadmap. To use the new Sony APS-C sensor with hybrid autofocus tech they will have to release their camera sometimes in instead of late I had the same problem with my GR.
Surprisingly, this major problem is rarely mentioned in reviews. Crappy contrast detect AF on a larger sensor. Coolpix A is the same. I have used many cameras with contrast-detect autofocus, including a series of Lumix LX cameras that had genuinely brilliant autofocus. By contrast, although the GR is fast and sure in the actual focusing action, it prioritises brightness over frame placement to such an extent that it focuses on the background if there is the slightest hint of light there.
The number of photos I missed because of this was disappointing to say the least. I had a GR Digital IV before that had exactly the same problem, though because it had a small sensor, it was sometimes masked by depth of field.
That is my experience with an a and K Missing the subject and picking up a contrasty background is far more frequent with a MILC. Thank you for mentioning this, I thought I was the only one that gets this problem. It's easy to work around for someone familiar with the camera, but hand it off to someone to take a photo of you and expect a nice sharp background and blurry face. The biggest annoyance about the camera.
Hibiki Rush You are not the only one. I had started a thread on this issue and the replies as to how to fix this were so technical that I bought an OMD E-M5.
GR now collects dust. Which is a shame This is the thread: Funny how DPReview never came across this issue. Maybe they are technically sound enough to avoid this issue. As usual, Zvonimir Tosic speaks so much sense. His posts are among the most thoughtful and interesting on this site.
Because the launch price was not in touch with the current market. The current change puts it similarly to an a, but that comes with an EVF, better AF, and better video. Still, it seems that the a is a better buy. Yet, I realized it doesn't add value, only to improved the 35mm crop mode feature and will make the camera a bit slower due to the larger files.
High ISO improvement is not practically huge. I like the A but dont consider this like that. The Sony requires big heavy lens to match the sharpness of this feather weight GR. Actually the Sony has a pretty nice 20mm f2. Plus the mp differences will make up for the slightly sharper lens on the ricoh. The only reason to go for the ricoh will not be iq but for a different shooting experience. It's a more integrated product while the Sony a is a more mass market product and will not handle the same as the ricoh.
The two cameras are just not equivalent. The old 16MP sensor is now the bottleneck of performance which is what the likely buyer will be checking against. Don't even bother just with the A , but take a look at the like of Panasonic GM-5 together with the 15mm or even just the Sony A with the 20mm.
Hey Samsung NX with their 20mm is not that bad either. The GR was launched as an up to date imaging hardware platform together with ricoh unique GR approach to UI and imaging soft side but the GR-II lack the first part and not much improved in the latter. So we are looking at what's more like a GR 1. The GR is a compact camera with a a fixed focal length wide angle, thereby being smaller and sharper than a zoom. I don't know what a imaging hardware platform is, but 16mp with a really sharp lens is plenty and the Ricoh screen and interface have always been very good.
I like the Sony and see why some would choose it if that was the choice, but I love my GR for pocketability, and the shooting experiences is supreme once you learn it thoroughly. Ricoh is half the weight and size.
I agree 16MP is a bottleneck and disappointing for fans, but thats enough for me. The GR is almost perfect as it is except for some dust issues. It is one of the most user friendly cameras around and produces one of the sharpest images for a 16 Mp APS-C sensor.
The only camera that can challenge its image quality is the new Leica Q with a full frame sensor and a much faster lens but it is not "pocketable" and is about eight times the price. For stealth and performance, the GR is supreme. Those who shoot regularly would appreciate its value.
Its the quality of the pixels that matters not just more pixels. Almost right - the Nikon Coolpix A would seriously challenge it on both performance and price. Not hearing of any dust issues with that camera either.
Yes the old model had been discounted as it was, wait for it, old. Doesn't add that much, sure, but neither do lots of updates. Not amazing, but heck the original GR has already had significant updates via FW over the course of its life that made it quite a bit better again.
The extra raw buffer etc is welcome and not so different from say:. Could I remind you that not everyone on dpreview lives in the USA. How about other parts of the world. You cannot just do a currency translation to get a Eruo or UK price. Otherwise I would not have said anything. And no mention has yet been made of official European RRPs, which is what we need. Tungsten, is it perhaps the new money that will be released soon after the ongoing, known difficulties of many European countries?
There are "Saab kinda technologies" around us. They offer best combo Price is compatible It sounds and feel "The One! But you ended up something else. Very sad to see its happening that way. I'll have to search rcgroups, but in general, I don't recall ever seeing it used on a plane or "drone". Seems ideal, other than price. Would prefer a Sony QX-1 Allows the drone to have other focal lengths like the 3 sigma primes and the 8mm fisheye from Samyang at a similar weight.
The Fisheye would be empty and gr loaded. All still under gr which is more or less the requirement for small drones. I'd love to stay under 10ounces. My current setup is around 7 ounces,maybe 8 so around grams with my mounting method. The frame weighs 10 ounces plus almost that much for the battery, then the 4 motors and motor controllers, flight controller, GPS; etc - so it's impossible to get much under 2lbs. It seems surprising that they were and still are asking more money for this than the GR.
To ask the same as the old camera seems reasonable given that none of the other manufacturers have managed to create a pocketable large sensor camera with an amazingly sharp lens. Talk of updates seems irrelevant. I own GRI and A7R and in almost all real-world situations where 28mm is appropriate the GR is equivalent whilst being genuinely pocketable. Money no object I wouldn't swap my GR for a Leica Q for example which costs more but is not pocketable. GR is an excellent camera but yuppies want more bells and whistles It doesn't heve a viewfinder, proper grip, interchangeable lenses, built in image stabilization, PDAF and a tilting touchscreen.
No buy for me and a shame on Ricoh!!! Scchh don't tell anyone - IS is totally unnecessary on a 27 mm equiv lens. Leica even recommend it be disabled on the Q. Jerome - many of my friends and collegues like the Ricoh GR series Ricoh is not in the same market as Leica List of changes Wireless connectivity Wireless flash support Raw file burst depth White Balance Autofocus during movie capture Exposure compensation during movie capture Creative effects during movie capture Top shutter speed wide-open More effects modes Interval Composite shooting In-camera raw processing Better image review for raw files Playback startup Pixel mapping Improved battery life: Fuji would just release a firmware update or two, or three And some of these options are not firmware upgrades.
Wow I find this insanely hilarious! Fuji really have done a marketing number with their FW updates. Ricoh have been quietly doing this for years and doing it better.
While this is a new and slightly modified camera it does have hardware changes, but the 'great Fuji' would never do that! I guess it is really easy to make firmware updates on a regular basis when all your cameras are exactly the same in a different shell.
It's a matter of different business models. Software development is not for free, it costs. And some cameras are traded at a price which is including a certain number of prepaid firmware updates The update is a basic one, improving the camera's 'stability for general performance' and bringing version 1. We've had a look through the revisions and pondered what they mean for the future of the series. So just what is Ricoh playing at?
The Nikon Z7 is slated as a mirrorless equivalent to the D, but it can't subject track with the same reliability as its DSLR counterpart. AF performance is otherwise good, except in low light where hunting can lead to missed shots. Nikon's Coolpix P has moved the zoom needle from 'absurd' to 'ludicrous,' with an equivalent focal length of mm. So far, it's a fun camera to shoot with — if a bit over the top.
We're well underway putting it through our range of standard tests — take a look at how it compares to the competition and our thoughts on using it so far.
