August Update


Leica Q

I have had a busy last couple of months with work and life. I do apologise for the lack there of any new content on the site. The Leica Q has been with me daily and much of my images have been limited to that camera. I do as you know, carry the GR everywhere and have taken the occasional snap. I plan on doing a ridiculous comparison just for the hell of it between the two very soon. The Leica Q with its full frame & 28mm f/1.7 lens against the Ricoh GR's APSC sensor and 28mm (equivalent) 2.8 lens.

A David & Goliath showdown in the making so stay tuned.

Also try and check out the West End Camera Club website. We post daily articles all related to photography in some way.

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

Quick comparison between the Leica Q & Ricoh GR .........Posted with Blogsy

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,
