Chasing Suki With The Ricoh GR

with 11 comments

Been messin’ around with the Ricoh GR this week. Large APS-C chip, sharp 28mm equivalent optic, super small magnesium body. Good stuff.

One of my favorite features is the camera’s snap focus mode, which lets you easily preset a focus distance. Then you just stop it down, select a fast enough shutter speed, hang the camera low every now and then and jam on the shutter. Not a bad way to get a bunch of random photos of Suki running this way. And that way. And this way again.

Oops. Did I mention selecting a fast enough shutter speed? The GR’s handy TAv mode allows you set both shutter speed and aperture manually while the camera floats the ISO up and down automatically. You get the depth of field and motion-stopping control you want without having to worry about your exposure, which is pretty handy when you’re chasing a Shiba Inu though an intersection with the camera. Overall, I’m pretty impressed!

    • It’s been a while! We’ve been jogging with Suki a lot lately, so the GR is a good fit =)

  2. Hi Jonathan! I love to see these photos of Suki! Very nice colors and I really like those blue shades. It’s always nice to see pictures of your dog.

  4. Was wondering about hat camera bro! Nice golden light snaps and mini review. What, no test charts and brick walls? How am I supposed to know about the edge sharpness or lens distortion!?! Hehehe.
