Ricoh GR and DSPTCH Wrist and Sling Strap Review

I love my Ricoh GR and so I want to treat with some nice accessories but they most always enhance the user experience of this great little compact. Straps as you know there are a dime in a dozen as I searched and searched I stumbled upon a manufacturer that seemed to be on point with the style and usability factor that I was searching for. So with that said in comes DSPTCH the makers of this wrist and sling strap that take your Ricoh GR to the next level. First off, I love the braided wrist strap, its very easy to use in the field with a great feeling your camera strap won’t break off as its handled on the field especially through a crowd. A feeling I had with the original strap that comes with the GR. In my opinion, I think Ricoh could’ve done a better job considering the cost of the GR but such is life and compromises had to be made (I suppose). Thankfully, DSPTCH didn’t compromise at all with …

The Billingham Hadley Small Review

Today, I have the great pleasure to review a legendary bag. A bag that will bring back similar memories from the days you use to wear, or perhaps still do, an old favorite pair of jeans. That classic look, you know the type, the type that just matches with everything, it creases on the right spot, and just gets better with time. Its almost magical the way it just wraps around your body and simply does it job. Its job is simple ― protect your precious gear with decorum and of course great usability. Folks, please welcome the Billingham Hadley Small, in my opinion, one of the best camera bags in this size division. When I first opened the box my eyes simply could not stop looking at the Hadley Small. The Black and Tan is simply stunning. In my opinion, a bag has to have a certain number of attributes if its going to be added to my collection. First, it needs to its job well. What’s its job, again, protect my gear. In …

Billingham Hadley

I‘m confessing to a recent addiction I just acquired ― CBAS. CBAS stands for ‘camera bag acquisition syndrome.’ To be honest, there are no perfect bags but some of them are quite nice in daily use. A review is forthcoming. Update the review has been published The Billingham Hadley Small Review and Fuji XE1

The Ultimate half case for the Ricoh GR by Gariz

When it comes to caring for your loved one, in this case the Ricoh GR, the choices are plentiful but only one truly stands out for their level of workmanship and attention to detail in this range of compact cameras ― the Gariz Ricoh GR half case. When it arrived, I immediately ripped the box open as the anticipation was flat out killing me. Everything about this brand and case just exudes quality.  As I first glanced over the half case I was completely awe stricken, its was absolutely beautiful and match my custom red ring GR to perfection. The quality of the leather and stitching is quite obvious its very high quality. It feels soft to touch like a nice pair of Ferragamo and something you must experience for yourself. The images I’m about to display don’t do justice to how nice and comfortable this half case truly is. From an operational standpoint, the Ricoh GR Gariz half case can qualifies as above average. It doesn’t add considerable bulk to the GR and adds a nice …

The Best Street (Casual) Photography Bag

When it comes to street (casual) photography one thing is often over looked ― what bag do you have and use? There are a multitude of bags which I suppose are small and fit just about any cameras but I’m not here to talk about the normal bags, I’m here to talk about the “best street photography bag” in my humble opinion. I’ve tried quite a few bags, too many to name, but let me tell that the Thinktank Photo Retrospective 5 has stolen my heart and the hearts of my two primary photographic tools ― the Ricoh GR and the Pentax K5 IIs. Its like this: you know how you fall in love with a certain comforter and that’s what you like to sleep in all time. Well, its like that for the GR/K5IIs and the Retrospective 5. I can’t think of any other bag that has all the features that one needs to have while on the field photographing. I don’t know about you but I wouldn’t want to trust my photography gear …

Remembering Small Compacts

I’ve always had a soft spot for small compact cameras. They are relatively ubiquitous in nature and quite lovely to handle. I guess what I’m saying is that I miss them. Here is a quick collection I sprung up from my Lightroom library. Are you a compact shooters and have any experiences to share, do tell please.

This is how I roll

    I still remember the days I use to find dslrs huge. I was all about Micro Four thirds and that size really suited my needs at that time. I became quick on the draw and really captured a lot images. A year later and voila, I ended my relationship with M43, sold all my gear, and embarked onto new adventures with a dslr. I didn’t really know what to expect but something about the grip really got to me. All of a sudden, the grip became comfortable, and I was really working the camera, it felt good, so I’m sticking with it. This new transformation also coincided with my love of strobes(flash photography) and really trying to learn light. So fast forward to 2013 and here we are embarking on new journey and rekindling some old ones.   I’ve been thinking of acquiring a true 50mm 1.8 (eFOV for Nikon DX) for some time now. I did the usual due diligence and read the appropriate reviews and what not, but nothing beats shooting …

Micro Four Thirds experiences and conclusions

I recently tweeted that I had a few conclusions based on my experiences with the Micro Four Thirds cameras after having tried a few of their most notable ones. Interestingly, Wouter Brandsma also chimed in immediately on twitter with his own conclusion as well. The truth of the matter is that they are quite capable of many things, let me explain further. Beginning My journey with the Micro 4/3 started with the classic Panasonic G1 the camera that introduced this form factor to the world. Prior to Micro Four Thirds, it was and it still exists Four Thirds. Which as the name implies with the former, they’re a smaller form factor cameras with similar sensors. The G1 was incredible camera with lots of qualities which I quite enjoyed and in the end it had its purpose but my photography drifted into a faster type of style which demanded a smaller size. Before going any further, let’s get this out right from the beginning without getting into little details and all out photo geekery. With the exception …
