Mele Cascades, Vanuatu. Reala. I have a 20" X 30" on my wall and am pretty happy with the lens.

Couldn't resist this thread. My two favourite shots came from my GR1.

I really should use it more.

Bob,

These are both great shots. I really like my GR1s too and I'm missing my GRD. Ricoh really is the biz when it comes to producing great results from 'pocket' cameras.

Regards
Ernst

Thanks Ernst.
I'd love to get my hands on one of the rare Ricoh 28mm LTM lenses, but they are 's.

I sold my GR1v, something that I regret now. Great pocket cam.

Dry outlook at Southend...

Well, will have to make do with what's available to me, right... here goes





Hope you're not disgusted by the first picture. I couldn't help taking my new baby everywhere

Papercut, AMazing last shot.

Historicist, also amazing shot as well.

It's funny, I am a black and white man, yet despite this, the two favorites on this thread so far happen to be color...
Thanks FilmFan :-)

another recent grab shot with the little cam that could ...

This thread makes me regret having sold my GR1s a couple of years ago.

Been hanging out to post some pics here since my GR1v arrived a couple of weeks ago. This little miracle does exactly what I hoped it would ... I put some Neopan 400 in it and exposed it at 3200 ... lots of contrast which seems to suit the 28mm focal length and the lens is sharp.

Brilliant camera!

I too feel a bit left out as all I have is a GRD these days. The R1 (the older sister of the GR1) was a wonderful camera, but sold to a new home. Not sure where pictures from that camera are these days.

I think I will go find a metal light post to stick my tongue too.

One of the few cameras I regret selling was my GR21. What a great unique camera that was.

Starting to get used to my GR1v finally and learning to come to grips with the 28m lens which has been tricky because I'm not really a wide shooter by nature.











Hell of a camera ... the lens is ridiculously good for something so small!

Only a roll and a bit have been developed. Was working / sick a lot during the Christmas break, but using it has been great. Just a little snapshot from the first roll.




Just a question - how many of you use the lens shade? I'm curious as to how often it would come in handy, but I never bother carrying it around as the GR1 fits nicely into my coat pocket without it.

Haven't bothered with the lens shade at all as the lens seems to cope fine without it and all it does is make the camera harder to carry.

After putting a roll of film in mine at a new years day bash and giving it to a friend and saying ... "here, take some photos because I'm busy with my SLR!" ... I'm impressed with the camera's performance when set on auto everything. It never seems to make a bad exposure decision ... it provides fill flash when needed to cope with back light and all the shots on the roll were perfectly focused. I tend to use it as manually as I can but maybe I shouldn't bother!

I've only ever owned one other point and shoot in my life and it put me off the things in a major way ... but it was a Samsung from about fifteen years ago and eventually it hemorrhaged after someone dropped it in the sand which effectively stopped the lens from retracting!

I still wish they made a version of the GR1 with a 35mm lens!

Yaschica T4/T5 is bulkier and has more shutter lag but it has a killer Zeiss 35mm/2.8 lens, and a periscope, and is cheaper used.

I never had a P&S before I got a Ricoh R1. They have a 30/3.5 lens that started my addiction. Moved over to a Bessa T after the R1 tested gravity on a hardwood floor from the top of a TV six feet up. I also was not overly happy with auto everything. The R1 didn't have any of the controls you have on the GR-1v. I do not think you will find another P&S with the qualities (e.g. handling, sharpness) of the Ricoh. It's one of the reasons I am so in love with the GRD III.
