Ricoh WG-6 / G900 / Theta Z-1 get delayed

I don't agree to this. CP+ is just 3 weeks ago. There is something more serious to this then just an unexpected delay in production. We will learn more in the future.

Remember the Nikon DL line that never came...... There is no sense in putting a product in production when you know you won't break even on sales.

Well the bigger shop overhere that revealed the price for the GRIII took the WG-6 and G900 out of the pre-order books.

---------- Post added 18-03-19 at 18:26 ----------



Well there is plenty of stock for wg-60 and wg-50, so there is absolutely no sense for shops to put their money into inventory of just another the same snorkelcamera like wg-6.

The first shipment of GRIII fullfilled all pre-orders and stocked all shops overhere.

Not needed.

They should send wg-6 and G900 back to the drawing table and put a good lens on it and a bigger sensor inside.

Theta Z-1 will always be a commercial gamble at that price. It just takes balls to put it in shops.

Well this is very simply to explain.

- yes IQ will improve greatly compared to the K-3ii (old sensor)
- no IQ probably won't be a great step compared to KP (since that was the bigger step made)

So unless this new model K-3iii will have an aps-h sensor......it will be in the same ballpark as KP.

Still lots to improve, af, processor and what not...

Let's not be to over enthousiast about those 75.000 members. How many have been looking in here over the past 2 years? How many have put the photographic hobby to rest, have gone to Canon or milc or some great smartphone.

Edit...
Correction, since 46.630 members are registrated overhere.

That is a fameus mountain near Nagano. So it is not unlikely that someone went up and took an image.

Here is how your day trip looks like...
?????????????????????????????????? | ??????????

One of the images could be the one on the Ricoh site, but there is really nothing different about that mountain when you are there the same day, or maybe a few days before or after and all tourists are on the same spot.

The image he took with Sony A7iii and 28mm lens, so that is totally douable with a wg-6.

(It is fun to see such a fantastic place and a daytrip in a blog)

Pentax K-S1 Promo Features a Bad Photoshop Job

The thing is that making an image is the basic function why people buy a camera. So you do like to know what to expect from this device when it comes to making images.

So if you make the camera looking better in the way that expectations about the image quality coming from the camera are unrealistic......Well then be prepared to have only disappointed customers after their purchase.

So I wrote about this before. Or some may say complain about this. And then there are the usual suspect saying that it is not important or what ever. Some even said that I was Brand bashing........

So what is it about?
My complain about Ricoh-Imaging using stock images for their advertising of lower end products like the WG-SERIES. To Let customers believe that the camera could be capable of taking such kind of images and reaching such high image quality. Wich I found deceiving.

So now there is a new thing with Huawei using slr stock images to show that their new high end smartphone the P30 is such a great photografic tool. That is deceiving and should be condempt. Huawei P30 and that is happening.

So I was thinking, is Ricoh-Imaging still doing this? And the answer is yes and no! Yes they still use stock images in their advertising images......but with the subtitel that these impression are *Image is concept art and not a real photographe taken with the camera involved (WG-6).

So this is a good step in the right direction.....and proofs that I was right!

I think Q-mount is large enough to support the biggest part of a 1 inch sensor, like 4/3th cut from it. All current lenses obvious don't.

I don't know any pro-kit with only one camera body.....

I had a nice Pentax aps-c set some years ago that cost 8000 euro. With current prices that maybe would be a little more.

These numbers are goals set. If they have reached them is a different matter. So how does it work? You plan sales and production. For your production you need parts from other makers. Think of motherboard, processor, shutter, mirror, buttons, the box and so on and on. So you place orders for these parts well ahead to have them delivered to your factory for assembling. They need to be all there, complete and at the right moment. So you plan a monthly start production and order the parts for it.......6 months ahead sometimes and for a period that is fixed......like 3 - 6 months or so and during that time you can change your production level.....up or down.....Whatever the market needs. So sometimes you see a manufacturer saying sorry for delays due to high demand and they can just not so simply make a bigger production.
