I have seen a lot of beautiful pictures here over the years, but this series simply takes my breath away.

Heh, trying to set a new record for "most liked first post"?

Ricoh should pay you for the service you just did them. And I have to remind myself that it's the photographer doing the job, not the camera!

Thanks for the report, and great work!

Some inspiring pics - are you a pilot?
I'm a paraglider pilot. From a paraglider you can take a lot of shots you could hardly get from a plane. (And vice versa of course)

Stunning pictures! (Especially - the third, fourth, fifth, seventh, eighth and ninth). The incredible success, and studio work!
Thanks! But I don't understand your last sentence, sorry!

I am open to a payment from ricoh.

And I think its both: The photographer and the camera.
At least for me it's also the camera: I have a Smartphone with a surprisingly good image quality, I have the Ricoh GR, and I own a Nikon D7100. Since I have the GR I made the majority of my favourite photos with it. That's because of the camera. (I hate taking photos with the Smartphone, because the ergonomics are terrible and I can't adjust anything I want. Of course the IQ is also not satisfying in many situations. The Nikon is great, but it's heavy. So when I go for a hike, I usually leave it at home. But GR is in my pocket.)
The "quality to size ratio" is simply amazing. That's irrelevant for many photographers, but it turned out to be very important for me.

Because you liked the photos, here are some more GR-pictures:

Absolutely representative of what the GR can do in good hands.
I too have felt guilty... I got my K3 around the same time (I think) as the GR and shortly after began shooting film more and more once again. I love them both dearly and quite honestly they will likely be my last digital camera purchases, at least for many many years - they both simply do everything I'd like them to do. Neither sees as much use as it might have though, and certainly the K3 has suffered, but so has the GR in favor of the MX and GR1s.

These images are simply amazing eye candy! For your paragliding, I presume that you have a pre-determined landing spot? Some of these shots look really cold out- do you paraglide in frigid conditions?

Thanks!
About the landing spot:
There is no need to determine your landing spot at take-off. You just have to make sure that there is always a landing spot within your glide range.
About the temperature:
That's no big issue. The typical speed of a paraglider is between 30 and 60kph. So similar to skiing.
If you have warm cloth, flying in winter is no problem.

Cheers,

Awesome shots. Different from everything I have seen, beating shots made from both drone and plane.

I meant to say before - kudos on taking the GR up flying! Stunning aerial shots and I like things that fly (used to fly gliders and powered A/C. More recently high performance R/C slope gliders).

Hi..I am also planning to purchase the Ricoh GR also, how's it compare to the pentax mx1? Which is better when it comes to shutter lag,image quality ? And which one is better when it comes. To street photography?

Thanks

Fantastic photos here--Pipo01, those are amazing! I just got a GR during the Amazon Prime sale, and after reading as much as I could find, and running through the menus and setting things up, I am just amazed. The interface and controls are like nothing else I've seen, but I like it. This will be fun. I did a few test shots, and am liking the results. This will be the camera I take with me daily, definitely. Lots to keep on learning, too.
