I’ve been ‘Finding my Feet’ with the Ricoh GR III. Changing between Multi-segment / Center-weighted / Spot and using the Positive Film pre-set has given me a bit of an insight. Some initial RAW file manipulation to see what can and can’t be done. Normally, I’m reticent to start with but I wanted to jump in with this camera.

Must get better – but I’m still finding my feet with the Ricoh GR III…
I took a first few photographs with my new Ricoh GR III camera yesterday.
I went into Northampton as lock down easing is in place. It was mid-morning and the sun was out but I hadn’t planned on going specifically to photograph. I found an out of the way location, en route to Yellow Bourbon Coffee Roasters. Everything is still pretty quiet at the moment. It was nice to be out in amongst buildings & shops.
I’ll be returning to Yellow Bourbon for more coffee as it was excellent and the knowledgeable Barista meant I can choose some beans next time..

I’m really, really pleased with the Ricoh GR III but it’s early days and I’m still getting to know it. I post processed the above (and linked) images as I was using the Standard JPEG pre-set but I’m now exploring the Positive Film pre-set.
Today was a new beginning, I received my new camera – the Ricoh GR III Compact camera. Released in 2019, it has an APS-C image sensor of 24 megapixels. Ricoh billed it as “The ultimate snapshot camera for the times”. It has a lack of anti-aliasing filter, it has touch focus and a newly designed lens. Therefore, it provides ability in an extremely small package.
I know it will provide me with what I need to be more productive and creative. I can’t wait to get started with it. I’ve charged the battery, formatted the memory card and now, I just have to update the firmware and I’ll be ready to start with a beginner’s mind.
