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.

I can definitely see the attraction of the GRD III after sampling the GR1v's capabilities.

The fastish lens must be nice!

I never shoot / don't really enjoy black and white but a friend got me a roll for christmas and I tried it out. Pretty charming to use, actually! (maybe it's just with a GR, though~)

GR-1, 2TMY, XTOL 1:1. If there's a problem it's not the camera's fault, that's for sure.

Brilliant camera!



Wow, wow, wow! Would you please share your development recipe?

Just got a GR1s from an RFF member and just ran a quick TMax 400 through it.

Can't wait to put some bulk rolled HP5 in that sucker... and now to trick that pesky DX reader.

Just set your Exposure Comp to -2 and shoot at 1600. If you need to compensate for back light then set it to 0.

What I was trying to get at is that my Kalt cartridges don't have DX codes on them. So even to expose my bulk HP5 at 400, I would have to compensate to -2 because the GR1s defauts to 100 if there's no DX code.

So I will have to buy some stickers or find a DIY solution

How could I have missed this thread???

Anyway, my contribution. In black-and-white:


Trio, Chelsea, Summer 2001

(Technical: Ricoh GR-1, Ilford XP-2 Super)


...and color:


From Manhattan Bridge, 2002

(Technical: Rioch GR-1, Kodak E200 [I think])

Still haven't fixed it since I dropped it a few years back (and my later-acquired Contax Tvs has further distracted me from repairing it, but fix it I will). Hell of a tiny camera.

Edit: This was the camera I had with me on 9/11/01, and photographed with from the same spot as the second photo here, but I have a hard time looking at those images...

^-----@ Barrett, the bridge image kicks it!

I absolutely love the GR-1 in black and white, but I've personally never been able to make it work in color. This, and some of the terrific color images above, are making me wonder what I've been doing wrong.

I don't think I've ever been as excited to receive something in the mail. My precious is coming back from CRIS cam tomorrow! The service was pretty quick too!

Mostly worried about a roll of t-max that I idiotically left in the camera...

Can't wait to start shooting with this baby again.

Some great photo's. I'll have to get some of mine up here. After my hard drive died I lost my drivers from my Canon flatbed scanner. I'm in the process of trying to locate the 'safe' place I stored the disk. I may have to visit Canon's website. The other option is buying a film scanner. But boy are the good one's expensive!!!

Sorry, I have no film scanner. These are of the photo scanned on a Canon flatbed at 1200dpi.

These are from when I visited Bath(England) August 27th. Taken with my GR1v using Kodak Gold. The mask was tricky. Applied a -2 exposure compensation, hand held with no flash. That was my 'if all else fails' shot. My first one was no exposure comp and that came out blurred. The skeleton was in a glass case. Again, hand held no flash. Came out better than I ever hoped. The other is up on the balcony that overlooks the bath house. Saw the statue and composed with the cathedral in the background. I like stone.

Know the feeling. You're nudging me towards sending my GR-1 off to CRIS sooner rather than later. Too good a camera to let lay fallow.

I find it odd that they are the only place that service GR film cameras in north america. Despite that, they did it quickly.
Though you'd think a malfunction-prone camera would have more repairmen.

Here's two from a roll I shot a month ago...

Fuji 400h, @ f/2.8


Fuji 400h, F/8 or F/11

Had to replace the piece that goes around the viewfinder, which contains the power button. I think CRIS calls it the 'eyepiece frame'.

Ran about $16 bucks. Should be in the mail tomorrow.

GR1v. Helicopter appeared from around a rocky outcrop. Was flying past and gone within 10 seconds. Just had time to get the camera out of my pocket and grab a shot.
