Ricoh GR Review What Digital Camera (press release) Not only is the Ricoh GR's 16.2MP APS-C sensor reasonably large in size, but it also lacks an anti-aliasing filter in front of it for the benefit of detail.
I have been shooting with the Ricoh GR lately, really like the camera and found it to be a serious competitor to the Fuji X100s – from a street photographer’s point of view. It ain’t pretty-the GR- but the boring point and shoot look can be an advantage, the camera draws little to no attention compared to the X100s. And since the D800E is my current bread&butter camera I included the Coolpix A in this comparison. I hope you will find it useful: A few things I should have mentioned in the video:
Camera Raw 8.1 is now available as a final release through the update mechanism in Photoshop CS6. This release provides support for HiDPI capable displays, new camera and lens support and address bugs that were introduced in previous versions of Camera Raw. Customers of previous versions of Photoshop can utilize DNG Converter 8.1 to receive raw file support for newly added cameras. Photoshop CS6 customers traditionally have received camera updates through Camera Raw 7.x releases. This is the first time that we are providing camera support through a version of the camera raw plug-in that is a whole version number greater than the version of Camera Raw that shipped with a specific version of Photoshop. (Photoshop CS6 shipped with ACR7 and now we’re providing support to CS6 with ACR8.) As mentioned here, this change allows us to be consistent with our past policy of providing raw support for currently shipping products. However, when ACR8 is hosted by Photoshop CS6, it will not offer any of the new features described in Photoshop CC marketing materials for ACR8.....
Bugs Corrected in Camera Raw 8.1- Occasionally the Fill Light adjustment introduced artifacts. This only occurred when processing an image using the PV2010 process version.- When using the Red Eye removal tool, setting red eye darken to 100% would lighten the adjustment instead of darkening it.- Reduced the default amount of sharpening applied to images taken with the Fuji X100s camera. New Camera Support in the Camera Raw 8.1- Hasselblad H5D-60 - Olympus PEN E-P5 - Olympus PEN E-PL6 - Phase One IQ260* - Ricoh GR - Panasonic LUMIX DMC-G6 - Panasonic LUMIX DMC-LF1
Ricoh had a reputation for producing superb 35mm film compact cameras such as the GR I and GR21 that found favour with enthusiast photographers. However, despite producing high quality images, the company's digital compact cameras such as the Ricoh GR II and Ricoh GR IV haven't really attracted the same attention.
The new Ricoh GR, however, could be about to change all that, because its 16.2 million pixel sensor is an APS-C format device rather than a 1/1.7-inch unit as is found in the Ricoh GR IV.
Don Springer and I are creators of Street Presets and Inspired Eye, he is waiting for his GR to come home in one day, we found it useful to describe his experiences with the Ricoh GR in a conversational way, like we do in the magazine. Further down I’ll invite some other Ricoh GR owners for a discussion.
Isn’t it nice when you have a camera that is small, well made, easy to use, and gives you superb quality out of the box? A camera with accurate colors, good AWB performance and nice high ISO. How about really nice and hassle free out of camera B&W for those times you want to shut out all of the color in the world. If a camera had all of this, along with a nice big fat APS-C sensor and decent Autofocus with a fast-ish wide angle lens built in I think many of us would jump in! Funny enough, it is usually NOT the big expensive cameras that give us all of this hassle free performance. Nope, this all comes from a camera coming in at $799, and let me tell you, it is a superb camera and tag along companion for your day to day life.

Our review of the Ricoh GR, compared with the Nikon Coolpix A. We've already reviewed the conceptually similar Nikon Coolpix A and concluded that in some respects it was it out-gunned by the Ricoh, so what does that mean for the GR? We've delved into the Ricoh's menus to get to grips with what it's capable of and explored a range of its interesting features. Read our comparative review to see how it performs.
Disclaimer: I have been provided a Ricoh GRD V (no strings attached) from Pentax-Ricoh. However I will try to keep this review as un-biased as possible.
Disclaimer aside, I think this is currently hands-down the best bang-for-the-buck digital camera for street photography currently out there right now (will release soon for ~800 USD). I love the compact size, the superb image quality and high-ISO performance, as well as the ergonomics and handling. It has been traveling with me alongside my Leica MP as a second shooter — and the camera seriously kicks ass.
While I still prefer shooting with film at the end of the day, it is an amazing camera and I highly recommend it to all street photographers who want a smaller alternative. Keep reading for more of my thoughts on the camera.
Elegance! The one word that describes the camera and the experience of using it. Elegance! I was out yesterday for a few hours on a practice run with the Nex 6. I say practice because I am just trying to see how the camera and I work together.
So got your GR already and you’re jonesing to take it out for walk and do some street photography already. You’ve heard all the hoopla about the Ricoh legacy and you want to confirm what’s the hype all about. Well, in today’s installment of my user based review of the Ricoh GR I’m going to explain a way to use an option which may not be that apparent ― FA/Move Target(from now mentioned as FAMT) and how this feature may be an aid for your new street photography adventures.
