About this deal

What I’m looking for is that tingle of big sensor and amazing lens that the RX1 does so well but is hard to describe. The camera is quick to start up so if you see something you want to capture it’s easy to whip it out of your pocket, turn it on and snap away. As you use it more, you get better at estimating your in focus area and the 28mm wide angle lens gives you space to reframe a shot if your hip shooting technic still needs a little practice. Both, my GR and GR II developed the Closed Shutter Problem which made the cameras use- and worthless before the shutter counts reached 50K frames.

Also now you can account for the blinking frequency of fluorescent lamps (50 or 60 Hz) so that there won’t be any signature stripes under artificial lighting. The specifications hold up fairly well, however there are a few things on photographer’s wish lists for this line. Other controls can also be customized for fine tuning camera operation, making the camera easier to use and to match your shooting style.

At least the GRII is a little smaller as the GR and GRII was just that bit too large to get away with being worn on my belt.

It is a pity that it cannot offer a built in evf and a mount system that can handle a wide variety of lenses. As a result, the effects of camera shake on image quality are minimized, maximizing the full capabilities of the newly designed GR lens optical performance for a variety of scenes. However, I have to say that I think there's plenty of room for improvement when it comes to the shutter button, besides the response issue, it also feels somewhat flimsy and cheap considering how much this camera costs.

Legend has it, the designers of GRI and GRII had their left arms tied to their body and had to make photos and adjust the settings while running in the wilderness. On the GRIII, the suspension cables anchoring the road bed to the catenaries look like a single cable. The battery life is currently more than enough for my needs, and when needed I can carry a couple of spares in a tiny soft case. The funny thing about the Hogan numbers is that they've been interpreted as evidence that this camera is making a huge impact on the company's bottom line. The specs claim both cameras have a 3 inch screen and one might believe it until the displays are turned on side by side displaying an image.

dot LCD is used for image composition, playback, and menu navigation, and its touchscreen design offers intuitive control along with Touch AF capabilities.

If she sees a camera she immediately freezes and asks why I’m are taking pictures, as if I’m planning to sell her identity on the dark web. Just make sure to remove the holder before turning off your camera, otherwise, your filters could end up shattered on the ground. Back in winter, when it became clear GRIII was nigh, I made an agreement with Pentax Russia to take it for a long-term test.
