GR First Shots

Got a chance to try our my new GR yesterday during a short break. Lots to learn with this beast. Some initial shots. Some noise reduction and minor s-curve adj. in PP but otherwise pretty much SOOC:

Looks like a great camera to use for street shots. Enjoy.

First time "street shooting." It felt very odd...almost like I was doing something "wrong." Trying to get a clean shot holding your camera along your leg when you are walking is rather difficult. The skater was 1 of prob 100 pics I took that actually turned out semi-decent

You'll find over time you don't have to make a great effort to be unobtrusive. You'll be surprised how inconspicuous it is as a camera.

Nice pics. The camera is deceptively small. And to have a large sensor is a treat and quality galore!

Some interesting shots. I'm a little jealous to be honest.

If I can find a good good deal on the GR I might snag one later this year along with the wide angle adapter.
