My top camera finds of 2015

The start of a new year always leads us to thinking about the year just past, and as a camera collector I automatically think in terms of the best cameras I’ve acquired over the last 12 months. Therefore I decided to write a post looking back at what I consider to be my top finds of last year. Bronica ETRsi I’ve wanted a medium format camera for a long time and in fact purchased a Pentacon Six which I hoped […]

Ricoh GXR A12 28mm samples

I wrote recently about the new sensor units I bought from China for my Ricoh GXR camera body and followed it up with posts about the 50mm macro unit and the sensor only A12 unit. Well this short post completes the series by including some sample images from the other unit I bought – a Ricoh GXR A12 28mm equivalent APS-C sensor lens.

Ricoh GXR S10 Lens Unit

Abstract image with Ricoh GXR

I took my new GXR into work today and I was playing about with a feature called Full Press Snap. This allows you to set a default focus distance so that if you take a picture by fully pressing the shutter without the half press to focus, the camera automatically focuses to the set distance and takes the exposure. This is a great feature for Street Photography, because you can take the picture almost instantly. With a small sensor unit […]
