Ricoh GR vs. Panasonic GM-1: 28mm Punch Up

By  over at The Photo Fundameltalist

Not best pics as the Lumix is really about the same size

I’ve waxed lyrical about both of these cameras and they are both quite different; The GM-1 is an ultra compact system camera that uses interchangeable lenses, whereas the Ricoh GR comes with a fixed 28mm equivalent. In one respect, however, they are similar: they both sport 16mp sensors and the GM-1’s 12-32mm lens includes 28mm in its range (it is the equivalent of 24-64mm).
We know that the 12-32 on the GM-1 tests out as top of its class, when it comes to resolution and contrast. It is better than similar kit zooms and matches, or surpasses, a number of much more expensive M43 primes. Clearly the two cameras are quite different in their functions and flexibility, but I thought it might interest some of you to see how the two compare in pure image quality terms at low ISO at the same focal length setting.

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.

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,
