Minimalist street photography with a Ricoh GR
Posted By DogLover

I've used my GR for street use in New Orleans and would say that it did well except that it whetted my appetite for shake reduction. My GR is a II and I struggled quite a bit with shots that weren't very well lit, which happens a lot in NOLA. I suspect a III is in my future, but not for a while as I, too find the price a bit steep. I've used mine at family events also and it was brilliant at that. It's definitely not a camera that will serve every purpose but it is a delight as a second camera.

The K-1 mark 2 can focus...

I'll second your findings. I bought a K-1 Mark II back in the spring I think and never really used it in earnest until my wife's company Christmas party. Took about 350 or so photos and I think I missed focus once, and that subject was so close I was amazed at how close to correct the focus actually was. This was using my Sigma EX24-70, a Pentax 540 flash and a Gary Fong diffuser. They had "professional" gambling tables set up so I was able to get plenty of reaction shots, plus a DJ and dance floor that was pretty dark, but this combo came through like a pro. Owner of the company was thrilled with the results and I just let them share them for download among all the employees. They were a big hit! I heard later that a lot of the employees that don't know me just thought, "oh cool, the company hired a photographer."

Are you implying that the K-1 is such an incredible camera that you no longer have to try as hard to take good photos? That's obviously not true but even if it was, "good" photos and "creative" photos can be two entirely different things. If anything, a more capable camera should lead to increased creativity, IMO. It opens up new opportunities that you probably didn't have before.

Really? On an $1800 lens? Personally, I'd gladly pay $64 to have the hood designed specifically for such a pricey lens...

I'm aware. It was an oversight when I made the listing that I tried to fix, but can't unless I completely remove and relist.

Great example of deals that can be found right here on the PF marketplace. I just sold my used copy of the 50-135 to an established member for HALF that sale price, and it was indistinguishable from a new one. SDM has always worked perfectly. Buyer PM'ed me today and he's delighted. :cool:

Item for Sale
*PRICED TO SELL* Metz 58-AF2 flash Excellent Condition

Asking Price
150.00 USD

Item Location
Tennessee (United States)

Item Description
Super price on this deluxe flash. Tilts and swivels, has built-in deployable bounce card that works great! Some minor scuffs, but no major scratches. Includes stand and soft case, original box and manual. Is on firmware ver. 5. I tried to update to 6 but couldn't get it to stick. Almost certainly something I'm doing wrong. If you're more tech savvy than I (wouldn't take much) you can probably get it to stick, but I have priced it as being stuck on 5. I know it will work (TTL) on bodies at LEAST as recent as K-3, as is.

*REDUCED* Metz 48-AF1 Flash

Asking Price
75.00 USD

Item Location
Tennessee (United States)

Item Description
Bargain price on this Metz flash in excellent condition. Rotates as well as tilts. Has a deployable bounce card built-in, something that even Pentax's best flashes don't have, and I can attest to the effectiveness of it. I preferred it to a Sto-fen diffuser for event photography. Has been updated to the latest firmware (Ver. 6). Has some minor scuffs, but no deep scratches. Includes original box and manual, but NOT the stand pictured.

Item for Sale
K-5 IIs with Canon S-type focus screen installed *Shutter count only 1429*

Asking Price
325.00 USD

Item Location
Tennessee (United States)

Item Description
Unbelievably low shutter count of only 1429 on this like new K-5 IIs. Canon S-type focus screen pre-installed in place of OEM screen, also includes a Tenpa 1.36x magnifying eyecup viewfinder in place of the OEM viewfinder, making this camera a superstar at manual focusing. Camera has no marks anywhere on it and works perfectly. Comes in original box with all original accessories with the exception of the little rubber cover for the battery grip contacts. If you would like the D-BG4 battery grip (also like new but also missing the plastic contacts cover) I can include it with the body for only an additional $40.

I don't as I just got my K-1 (II), but I can test it sometime tonight or tomorrow. Frankly, though, at this price even if it vignettes a little and you need to crop it out, it's *still* a bargain. It's a heck of a sharp lens at a very reasonable size for f/1.4
