You've been GR'D!

Postby benji77 » Thu Oct 04, 2012 4:46 am

Hi all

I am a new GRD4 owner as I bought my first copy 3 days ago :)
It is an intuitive camera, and I have yet to get the hang of it in tweaking the B&W to the settings I want. Its more difficult than I thought to use a Point & Shoot :)

Anyway, I'd like for this thread to showcase shots from around the world using a GRD. Any GRD!

Please feel free to add in your shots to this thread :)

Hi and congratulations on the GRD IV.
This whole site is dedicated to Ricoh and GRD images.
I would not say the GRD is a "Point & Shoot", more that its a fixed lens professional camera that has a Point & Shoot mode.

A few nice grabs, I like #1
Tim

Tim, could you show me the Point & Shoot mode. My wife would love to use my GRD4 but thinks it's too difficult.
I'm not being silly but serious. I never found that mode.

Well, you've got me there a bit, but I guess if you go Pattern Metering in Program mode with Snap Focus set for Infinity etc, always Pop the Flash left in Auto... you get my drift... it would go close.
You could dial it into a MY mode (except the flash) and tell her to just leave it there. Use the power and shutter buttons
Thats the beauty of the GRD is it can be "programmed" to emulate many setups.

It would not nail the image every time I suppose but then neither does a true P&S either.

BTW: I loooove the spiral staircase, groovy colours :D and great framing.

Geeze Tim, after all that I guess the GRD4 doesn't make a good point & shoot after all.

Yes, yes, the green-cyan staircase is it. I like it, too.
Having nothing to add to the P&S GRD theme, though. :)
