Customized Settings on the GR

being brand new to the GR I need some ideas on setting up MY1 My2 and My3 programs
I'm curious to get some ideas on how everyone is using those program settings.

Here are a few ideas:

Full Auto mode - for handing your camera to others - multi point AF, P mode
Street mode - for street photography - full press snap focus, Tav mode, F/5.6, 1/50 sec shutter
Flash mode - For use with an auto flash - ISO 100, M mode, 1/200 sec, F/2.8 (or whatever your auto flash expects)
low light mode - for non-flash photos - Tav, F/2.8, 1/25 sec, flash off

Thanks for the suggestions...I'm still learning how to use this camera and at least I've got some idea about where to start now...

Hi. I am new to using the Ricoh Gr and photography in general.

Personally I am currently playing with the following settings:-

My1 - Av, F7.1, Auto iso - General use

My2 - TAv F5.0, Shutter 1/25, high contrast b&w, snap 2.5m - Low light

My3 - TAv F7.1, Shutter 1/500, high contrast b&w, snap 2m - General street photography

Look forward to see what others are using.

Hi Peter, this is how I've got mine set up:

My1 - Day-to-day - Aperture priority (f5.6), RAW+, Pinpoint AF with full-press Snap set to 2m, ISO Auto-Hi (up to 6400)
My2 - Street - TAv mode (f5.6 and 1/640"), RAW +, Snap set to 2m
My3 - Motion - Shutter priority (1/10), RAW+, Snap set to 2.5m, ISO Auto-HI (up to 6400)
