This is really just a test post and we didn’t know exactly what to make of our virgin story, but given the buzz created by the Ricoh GR in the past months and the fact that we recently got hold of one here in Norway, we decided to share some samples of how it looks with the 42mm MagFilter attached.
If you don’t mind carrying around a very tiny pouch to accompany the Ricoh GR, then this 42mm CPL filter could offer a neat way to both reduce glare and protect your lens barrel from attracting dust should you be so unlucky. We just ordered this magfilter a few days ago, and it was apparently shipped from Hong Kong. We received it here in Oslo in a matter of days, and the UPS guy actually delivered it to our door…impressive.
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. Source (http://pentaxrumors.com/)image(https://gr.ricoh-imaging.eu/)
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 )
