p.4 #1 · Ricoh GXR images


I still have a bunch of photos to go through from Rome, but here are some to begin with from Vatican City. I still can't believe the level of detail I'm getting in full-sized images. Of course the price to be paid was aliasing maze artifacts and color artifacts. For my favorites, I'm going to see if RPP can do any better with the RAWs. I just started using LR4, anybody try to round-trip images through RPP with their plug-in?

Before I left, I tried setting up a My# spot for each lens focal length, and kept forgetting to move the mode dial after changing lenses, so the EXIFs are all screwed up. Lenses listed below are best guesses, though the 15 is of course easy to spot.

Matt, Your photographs have great "wow" factor. The VC 15 is a great lens!
Did you use inside a little tripod or did you put the camera on a place with the self timer like I did with my Panasonic at the time?
Can't say anything about RPP, it is still for the happy MAC few

Indeed these two lenses work so well on the GXR. No complaints about the Ricoh files, he.
The church is doing very well in Vatican city. No need for direct maintenance.

Cheers, michiel

Matt; great set of images. RPP will do a better job, you can depend on that.

Dropping by for some visual stimulation - looking good folks! For some reason Ron's images are not loading at present but no doubt he's aware of that or will be soon.

I'll be back with some images in the not too distant future; I've been completely consumed by work and work on our house. We gutted half the main floor to the studs and started over (other half was done last year) and while not completely done, life is starting to approach a normal pace once more.

Colors on the first images are too subdued for me. I prefer a little more punch in the colors.

Wow, you guys are so critical around here and very hard to please
We are talking sundown here and the colours are a lot more punchy as the situation was in reality.
I don't like to turn things into an artificial postcard.


@ Kosmokatten, thanks!

p.4 #12 · Ricoh GXR images


I photographed our local Canada Day fireworks last night, using a three-camera set-up. Two Canons, one with a wide zoom, the other with a tele, and the GXR with a ZM21 for a wider view than the wide SLR (was set at 35mm on an APS-H crop).

I decided to try the GXR because it has a built-in intervalometer function, which for fireworks is extremely useful. Just set up the camera with the desired framing and let the intervalometer take care of the work while you then enjoy the show, or tend to the other cameras.

One drawback of the GXR vs. the Canons was that it does a time-equivalent dark frame subtraction for noise reduction purposes. I didn't look extensively, but couldn't find a way to turn this off. The problem of course is that for a 30 second exposure, you lose 30 seconds waiting for the camera to process the dark frame. The Canons no longer have this limitation (my earlier Canons did), so it's just a matter of locking the electronic cable release open with the frame advance set to continuous.

Comparing the results, I think the GXR's NR was excessively strong. Maybe it was because it was already late, but last night I just couldn't get the GXR images to match the colour quality of the Canon files...

Anyway, here are some results:












The show was only about 15 minutes long, so given that each 30 second exposure consumed one minute, I only got a handful of images with the GXR, which was OK because it was really a test to see how it would work.

And, breaking the rules a bit, here are a few from the Canons (either 1DIV or 1DIII):

Haha, not sure what happened to all those GXR owners. Maybe they sold it already

Fountain in Trastevere, Probably the 25/2.8






Florence from above, probably the 25/2.8






Palatine Hill! Probably the 25/2.8

Nice shots Matt! I particularly like no. 3.

Since I sold both of my Ikons last week, I'm basically left with the GXR and I'm rediscovering it. First thing I did was to remove that useless bulging thing called EVF. Now the camera feels and looks normal. Anyway I judge focus much better with the LCD, but will keep the EVF just in case I plan to shoot in direct sunlight. Keep them coming guys!

Nope, still have it, just don't use it because I have too many cameras! And I'm happy with the M9 as my smaller walk around kit, therefore find I'm not taking the GXR out very frequently.

Thanks for bumping the thread. Great to see some new images.
