Man in a hat,

Ricoh GR, Snap Focus, Lightroom, Exposure 7 Portra 400 preset.

I was getting off the bus and had my camera in my front pocket when I spotted this man sitting. I quickly pulled my camera out while walking towards him. It was like a race against time as he started to stand ..... I quickly pushed the power button a snapped as I pulled my camera up as he stood catching him as my camera was just at chest hight. Thank God I had 'Snap Focus' preselected on the Ricoh. Not perfect compesition & focus slightly out but happy with the shot. You just never know, it just highlighted to me the importants of having your Camera reday and set up prior to going out for the day.

I could bring it into photoshop to see ablout eliminating the camera blur but for now it will do

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,
