Ricoh GR High ISO Shots
I’m really beginning to enjoy the Ricoh GR high ISO capabilities. I’ve been using the new Ricoh GR now for a month or so, and it continues to impress me. It’s quick to focus and the high ISO images are much better than the Ricoh GRDIV. I always added grain to the tune of 40, 40, 40 in Adobe Camera Raw (amount, size and roughness) with the GRDIV, and I quit doing that around ISO 1600 in the IV. Now with the Ricoh GR I have to add some grain and grit to get the same feel even at 6400. The new sensor is pretty smooth.
Thrift shopping in Moab is always an adventure. It seems like there couldn’t be too much turnover in a small town, but there actually is. Lots of good stuff to find. The old Memory Lane store seems to be under new ownership; it’s called the “Three Sisters Thrift“, and while it’s still a little dark, it’s much cleaner and nicer than it was before. I even noticed a computer at the counter! A real step up from the old Memory Lane days.
These photos should demonstrate to a degree the Ricoh GR High ISO ability. All of these photos are taken with the new Ricoh GR shot in manual mode at ISO 6400. I’ve processed them the way I normally do, with a little curves adjustment and a little added grain. I think the new Ricoh really is a decent step up from the GRDIV, but it’s still essentially the same camera – just better. A real pleasure to shoot with.
Thanks for looking. _____________________________________________________________________
