Thread: Ricoh GXR!

    Hey flashdance,

    Thanks for the kind words, is very encouraging, just when i thought i was all alone here ha ha...

    Yes, shooting moving children with GXR often push my photography skill to its limit. And yes, on rare occasion when i wanted to freeze a swift fleeting moment of our children, i do miss the flexibility of a zoom and the hypersonic speed AF that SLR can offer. But on the day i gave up SLR, I know what i was trading in. And so i resorted to have a different approach, just do what GXR do best and stop expecting it to be a SLR.... because it is not!

    The Initial D series below (D = drag, not drift ...AKA. shutter Drag) was taken with GRD 3 (before i upgrade to A12 28mm). By the way both camera focusing speed is about on par in good light.. may be with GRD3 a hair line faster with lessor glass to move.

    My daughter was having a blast on her tricycle doing her F1 laps at the void deck. As she was getting bolder and building up her speed i was struggling to get the exact framing, moment and exposure (lots of back light) i wanted.

    So i switch approach, instead of trying to freeze the moment, i started to pan her movement and capturing its flow. And suddenly it felt like I have switch to a totally different camera...
    GRD3 come to live with this approach, the instant switching back and forth between manual/Snap and AF eliminated the focus lag, the instant locking of changing exposure in the tricky lighting with the One press M mode settled the exposure, and panning with one stretch out arm (leveraging on the LCD and small form factor) provided a lot more compositional flexibility than i would have with heavier set up.

    I may not have freeze the moment for my daughter, but i certainly captured her in action... and this would add more variety to the collection of her childhood memory when she looks back

    Thanks Mr. Khaw, I like your spirit ha ha Though i wont be as brave to say it is the best, but it certainly best at what it was meant for

    do you know how much is M-Mount selling for?

    Bro, is that the ACAM 305? Can PM me the details of where you got that from?

    i just love the bokeh of A12 lens, but sometimes i feel it's too smooth (i know i am hard to please) so i try all means to break it and make it rougher... still having little success in my conquest

    The M-module when it's released here can either be bought on its own or bundled with the body at a very attractive price which works out to paying something like $200 only for the body. Good deal for those who do not already have the GXR system and only want to use it with M-mount lenses.

    it does did a good job in keeping flare in control. not bad for a small 50 prime.

    the GR lens are well-know for their clean and sharp reproduction. try the GR_D1, 2, 3 or the coming 4 and you will know what I meant.
    I had the GR_D2 & 3 previously and sold it for GXR but regretted it now. Am trying to get into GR_D4 if dollars allow.

    Bro young, I have been following this thread for quite awhile and I've enjoy seeing your many nice pics taken with the GXR and also your comments on the camera.

    The GXR has intrigued me since day 1 and I feel it is a very capable camera with its own personality. I have nearly bought it a few months ago while debating between it or the X100. In the end, I bought the X100 because of the viewfinder and the fixed 35mm lens. However I have still been following the GXR as I still hope to own it one day.
    Life is like photography, we develop from the negatives.

    hey Aaron, thanks for the encouragement! X100 is also a very intriguing camera, had a short hands on with my friend's and very impressed indeed.
