Its time to unsubscribe from this thread. Ive had Enough of this nonsense.
It amuses me greatly when people announce that they are unsubscribing from a thread.
Why would anyone care if you are subscribed to the thread or not?

My new K3 says Ricoh on the back and the charger it came with says Hoya Corp.

Happy with the K3 and the charger is ok too.
Oh that's funny. I like that melting pot of history

Why should we care that you don't care?

By the way, did I mention that I am starting a new Leica forum, where we will only talk about purity in photography and branding.

Did I mention that Fuji Water is the best?

I was thinking… I do that sometimes, "when would anyone ever know this was a Ricoh camera," and then I thought, "well when you're looking the other way through the lens", because if you look the other way through the lens, that is look though the lens while it's attached to the camera, you can see out the other side. Things are smaller, kind of like looking the wrong way through binoculars… but you can do it. And then I wondered, "can I see my eye in live view?", and I thought, "well not without a ring flash or something", because it's dark in there, and you'd also need a lens that would focus down to 3mm, but then I thought "well, maybe you could make it look like you were looking at yourself in live view"… are you still with me?


Here ya go… notice, I'm shooting with a Ricoh camera, the whole point of this exercise...

The white balance and resolution are off, you didn't match the exposure and how are we supposed to see noise and detail in an image this size? Please post a DNG, we can't tell anything from this sloppy test. Amateur! NOOB!

I do have 24 hours with nothing to do but answer requests for a full size DNG, properly white balanced photo…

I'll get right on that.

hey, I'm just a little slow to respond to this type of thread, I can't help it if you guys already hijacked it for entertainment purposes! And besides, what's wrong with trying to bring an out of control conversation back on track? Even if it is of no real . . . (wait that would have been rude).
