In this video, I discuss the battery life of the Ricoh GR III for street photography, as compared to other compact cameras, as well as adding the Newmowa Li-90B Battery Pack and charger to your camera bag. This includes two batteries, and a charger, and along with the single battery included with the Ricoh GR III, you'll have three batteries, and the charger. A great deal, and something you'll need if you're doing a lot of shooting.
Ricoh GR III owners, along with most compact camera owners, have either had a battle with dust on the sensor, or have heard horror stories from those that have. This is not unique to the Ricoh GR III, but how does it happen? This video explains how it can happen, and some possible solutions to prevent this from occurring with the Ricoh GA-1 Adapter.
I continue to use the compact but extremely potent Ricoh GR III for some photos of an abandoned house not too far away from my home. This was a fun little excursion that included this little house, as well as the barn featured in Vlog #1.
All photos shot in manual mode, and edited in Lightroom. I've also started numbering the images as they appear in the video, so if you have any comments about a specific photo, you can refer to it by number when commenting, that should help the conversation a little better.
Question of the Week: Do you enter abandoned buildings/structures when you find one, or only shoot from the outside?
Follow up Question: Does the possibility that an abandoned structure could be haunted prevent you from photographing them?
Using the Ricoh GR III, or any compact camera, you can take great landscape photos. It helps that the Ricoh GR III has an APS-C sized sensor, giving a much better image than most compact cameras with 1-inch or 1 2/3-inch sensors, and often better results than most consumer-brand DSLR's and mirrorless cameras on the market.
In this video, along with using the Ricoh GR III to take sunset photos of an abandoned barn near my home last fall, including camera techniques, tips and settings for any camera, I give an update on my YouTube channel's progress and direction, and offer viewers the ability to participate in the Question of the Week!
