Hello nice photo with relaxed expressions.
Thanks Rob, she’s deep in thought for sure. Thanks for swinging by I have not seen you around here before. GR owner as well? Cheers
Plenty of depth of field even at such close range. Must be a small aperture. So what’s the difference to GRD3 or 4? Not criticizing, just trying to understand. Now everybody goes gaga over this new GR but I am pretty sure the same image could have been made with one of the older, and 60% cheaper, models.
The depth of the raw files and the razor sharp lens. Its unmatched in any previous GR.
There is nothing wrong with the previous lens, except it was a stop faster. Bigger sensor is better, yes. I think it matters if you print 20″x30″ but not in smaller 8x10prints. Pixel peeping is different. Actual prints look very nice from 3 and 4. I personally think Ricoh should have put the 1″ Nikon 1/ Sony RX sensor into a GR and made a 1.8 lens for it. Body could be same size as before, not this gradual increase every second generation.
Plenty of difference Ilkka. Size for starters, the GR feels a lot better than the GR3/4 ever did. The reason everyone goes gaga over this GR is because its got a great sensor ilkka, I can do things with the GR that I can never even dream of with previous models. I know you’re highlighting street photography but as I have said in the past, click the GR review link above, this camera is way more than a streetshooter. If you want a street photographer camera only, then the GRD3/4 will be fine. If you want that and more, then get a GR.
That is a good point. I have the GXR for the other things, with both the (slow) 24-85 zoom on 16mp APS sensor and the 50mm macro on 12mp APS sensor. For street I have 3 and 4 and dont feel the need for GR.
Great Jorge! Those GR files really translate into black and white extremely well. I am loving this little GR for street work too. It is the best GR by far!
Thanks Keith! Indeed they are special. Street work in stealth mode equals GR!
Hehe, love their expressions!
Thanks Jonne, she seemed worried.
