the K-01 returned home from Isaac Szabo for conversion to IR, and so far, its pretty d@mn cool! I can confirm that the XS 40 and the limited 70 work quite well--no hotspot. I'll have to get used to framing shots using the LCD on the back instead of a viewfinder (my one gripe on an otherwise nice little camera), but so far it feels like a poor man's HIE, with aerochrome thrown into the bargain.

For an explanation of the custom images, the Ricoh Japan website goes through each of them in detail. You can set your auto ISO to have limits and not go above 400, or whatever you choose. I would also suggest that you try shooting in Manual mode, where you can control much more. I would also switch to multi segment metering over center weighted, it will meter the whole frame, usually with better results in that type of photo since it will make exposure adjustments.

Your low light shooting friend for landscapes is a tripod. With a tripod you can shoot at ISO 100, and be able to get the slower shutter speeds to have nice clear photos at the aperture you choose. It's quite easy to set up exposure while shooting on manual on a tripod. You can change either the shutter speed or the aperture to get the exposure you want. I always have a tripod in the car, I don't always use it, but for low light landscapes it is a must.

Two important answers that I've read over the years when someone asked about improving their photography were: use a tripod, and learn exposure, I've never stopped learning, and still have a long way to go. And just when I think I have one thing figured out, a new variable is introduced.

The photo below is a twilight landscape, shot with a tripod. The sun is under the horizon but still lighting the sky. I used multi segment metering which allowed the camera to use the whole sky and reflected light in the water to meter. had I used center weighted (or worse spot) metering the boat would have been better exposed, but the sky would have probably been vastly overexposed and the colors would not be as vibrant, if they were there at all. There are times that center weighted and spot are more useful, but not usually in a landscape. I used F9 to get a greater depth of field, and bumped the ISO up to 400 so I could get a little faster shutter speed since the boat was moving, that allowed for a 1/30 shutter speed. I could have done that handheld at 21mm, but I can never hold it as still as the tripod.

My Your Best Photo+ Submission was Selected!

I was very surprised to get an email from Ricoh this evening to inform me that one of my submissions to "Your Best Photo+" was selected. It now appears on the Ricoh page and was included in a new youtube video just released. I am very excited. I felt it was my best photo of last year, so it is a bit validating that of the submissions I made, it is the one that was selected.

The Your Best Photo+ Gallery: Collections | Your Best Photo+ | RICOH IMAGING

Here is the photo, taken with the DFA*50mm on my K1. It was early morning with smoke from forest fires causing the orange sky, but also a heavy fog set in just amplifying the effect. I had spotted this old ruin on the way to our campsite, and was just waiting for the right moment to make a photo and as soon as I got up and saw the fog I knew it would be amazing.

Sorry for the braggy post but I am very excited :)

2. I'm currently shooting with K70.
3. I could use new K70 cause the one I own is kinda broken...the autofocus malfunctions regularly. In 8 out of 10 shots it's a miss. With all 3 lenses -18-
135mm, 35mm and 50mm. The guys in the repair centre couldn't help me, they tried everything. I use it now for stills (using focus peeking) and rarely
for portraits. I would love to get out again and shoot the streets, people and architecture...

My wife often complains that I'm never in the pictures from our trips cause I'm always the one taking them. So on our recent trip to a resort in Dominican Republic, I made sure we had a picture taken of us together. ;)
