Ricoh GRD 3 Blog

My film photography is nearly dead since some months and those of you who had fun with my Rollei 35 project may like my new blog, dedicated to the lovely Ricoh GRD 3.

Looks good Petronius - I've just started my own GR blog on Tumblr as well but mine is a "one camera one year" project so you have a head start on me. Will follow you!

I'll have to follow these blogs. I like, especially, that Petronius says his blog is about photos with the GRD 3. There seems to be a tendency among GR users to always use "GR" rather than specifying which one they are using.

Thatīs right. Iīm looking fora GRD I and searching for it brings up way more GR (APS) models than I want to see;-)

I have not used the grd3...but have used the I, IV and the new GR. They are kind of different and all rock in their own way. Would love to try a 3 some day.

I am a big fan of yours Petronius.

Love your work, your ideas, and insights.

If you like the edgy, grainy B&W look, the original GRD (1) is it.

RAW write time is painfully slow, but JPEG is quick, and black and white is great.

Important information:
The pictures in my blog are mostly not straight OOC! I shoot jpg (ISO 1600 whenever possible, black and white, contrast and sharpness @ maximum; underexposed 0,7-1)

I crop the pictures, but I try to keep the 4:3 ratio, sometimes I shoot in "Vivian Maier mode": 1:1;-)

I use additional software (Graphicconverter, GIMP, DxO FilmPack 3) to give them the look I want.

And no, I donīt like the built in HC mode; I tried it sometimes, but I never was fully satisfied with this look.

Looks like you're having a great time. The GRD III was my go-to camera from mid 2009 to mid 2013, when the GR rolled out.

John, I donīt know. For this moment I would say Iīm just lazy. In my actual opinion my film pictures donīt look so much better than the convenient digital files.
Even the use of my film cameras doesnīt please me so much more that I would go through all the shooting developing scanning fuzz.
(For all of you: This is my personal opinion, so please no "which is better"-war!)

BTW I like the pictures in your tumblr John. Following!

Thanks for the link Petronius. I've always enjoyed your work and will follow along. I've put much of my GRD III, IV and GR work on my tumblr page.
Thanks for sharing.
John

Zeno, I'm liking your posted images more and more. Clearly you are getting to know the little GR quite well. As your tumblr posts have increased, the images are becoming as powerful as your Rollie film work. Thanks for the inspiration (as always).

I agree, I love the way the GR Digital renders B&W JPEGs.
Here are two recent OOC JPEGs from my GRD I.





No post processing other than a little crop and border.
