My Preciousssss is Back

Sweet baby Jesus my Ricoh GR is back from the Doctors. As you already know the lens retraction mechanism needed to be replaced. So the guys at C R Kennedy's (Ricoh Disstributer) had it up and atom in no time and back in my eager hands. 

Although I got to spend a lot more time with my Leica M9-P and Fuji X100s, I  soooo happy to have my stealth shooting baby back in my front pocket.

So stay tuned for some upcoming posts over the next few weeks. Also would like to say thanks to Connor at DigiDirect Brisbane store for all his help and great customer service......

Ricoh has a new patent (2016-201400) field in Japan for a Bayer sensor without a colour filter array (CFA) which should create sharper monochrome images. If dreams could come true a Ricoh GR Monochrome (ala Leica) would be an absolute corker.
We are all holding our breath for the Next incarnation of the Cult Ricoh GR APSC Camera. A 'Ltd Edition Monochrome' camera would be fantastic indeed.  Finger, toes and balls crossed.

Leica Q vs Ricoh GR

VSCO FILM® 07 & Ricoh GR

Nice indeed, I'm really enjoying this pack. There is enough variety here that makes it worth the purchase, especially with the launch discount and stackable loyalty discount if you've purchased any one of their film packs before. Even still, VSCO packs are never cheap, and if you're wanting to get a good idea of the power of these presets and how easy they are to use, the new VSCO Film 00is aFREEstarter pack from VSCO - It has both Kodak Tri-Xand Kodak Gold 100. Back in the day, thats almost all one would need, so give it a crack - it's got more than just two presets, with all the variants you would expect (Kodak Tri-X 400 ++ anyone? :p )

VSCO Film 07 is available from the VSCO website,
