GRD IV, f5.6, 1/640, ISO 80, RAW
As you can see from my pictures I have spent quite some time at the O2 recently but having time and a cinema card means I have been around there a few times.
Took the GRD IV with me to test my new Eye-Fi SD card and see how well it woks, I used it yesterday in the GXR but since the GRD IV has built in support I wanted to see if there is any difference. So far it's great, mostly for the ability to finally have some (more or less accurate) geo-tagging in my pictures since it's something Ricoh has not implemented in any of their cameras. While it works fine in JPGs, DNGs don't have the data embedded so any RAW conversion loses the data but I guess it's better than nothing.

After all the grey in the past days, some more colour and some sunshine from today.
Decided to post a series to show some of the colour but most important to bid farewell to my Leica Elmarit-R f2.8 28mm lens which is for sale now on ebay. It is a fantastic lens but overlaps too much with my GR 28mm lens to be worthwhile keeping, it focuses quite close but this is not enough to keep it.

GRD, f6.3, 1/640, ISO 400, JPG b&w
Another grey day in London, what's annoying is that now when I am home the weather is like this but when I was stuck in an office till 6pm it was nice and sunny. But on days like these I can go to the cinema and not feel like miss out.
Took the GRD I again with me since the b&w images it produces seemed best suited for the grey sky today.

GRD, f7.1, 1/800, ISO 400, JPG b&w, 21mm
Took this on my way back from the O2, had the GRD I with the 21mm wideangle adapter along. It's very nice to use and much smaller and lighter than I remembered. The b&w image quality is still impressive from the GRD I and has a character I have not seen in any other camera.

GXR A12-M, f2.0, 1/3500, ISO 200, RAW, 75mm (Jupiter-8 f2.0 50mm)
Took this while walking through Greenwich Park to meet friends for a BBQ, the weather was perfect to be outside today.
I decided to take the Jupiter-8 lens with me and get a different look to the pictures.

GXR A12-M, f4.0, 1/500, ISO 200, RAW, 42mm (Ricoh GR f2.8 28mm L)
Took this picture during a photo walk around London today. Liked how the guy just stood in his chair by the 'beach' and was singing and playing his guitar.
