Ricoh GR III Review
Huge improvement on the RICOH GR (mark I) I previously owned. - shake reduction makes 1/4s handheld shots possible for beautiful shots including moving water with no tripod - 24MPX makes the 35mm crop used without thinking about resolution loss at about 15MPX - much more responsive (ex: ADJ button ...

Vivitar V6000 Review
Nice camera, light and very good grip, bright viewfinder.. I n manual there are 2 buttons +/- in center of auto/manual/off switch to select time. Not very practical but usable, give a clean aspect to camera top. LED indicator in viewfinder for time / over exposure. Over all very good for use i...

Ricoh WG-6 Review
First off, this is the camera for always and everywhere, even under water. Most used is the microscope mode with the built-in ring light. The ring light makes it possible to get super close where the camera shades off most of the natural light. It opens up a whole new world. In general, the co...

When I upgreaded from my K-50 t...

Pentax KP Review
This camera is ideal with limiteds. With them, the size is comparable to modern mirrorless cameras (fuji x-t?0) but the ergonomics and functionality is much better. I do not have problems using it with some bigger lenses like DA* 16-50/2,8. But some of bigger lenses (Sigma '30/1,4 Art) are not very ...

Pentax K20D Review
I am into my fourth K20d. Was about to move to more recent models when my eye caught a glimpse of quality problems. Thes e are unknown to me with older generation bodies. Found me another K20d in near mint condition to replace the stolen one. I use low ISO and do most of the shooting with MF l...
