Program Mode for Ricoh GR II

Updated on February 22, 2020 in Equipment

I’ve been using the Ricoh GR II since early September, with very satisfying street results in several major cities. 

I have only been using the Program Mode – to simplify matters and concentrate on composition.

I’m unclear of whether to use Multiple AF or snap – especially since I’m using “Multiple” for basic exposure … with some flirtation with “Center” focus.

Any suggestions from Ricoh users?

My settings are AF Spot and full press spot. When I half press the AF kicks in, if I immediately full press it takes the spot distance (no AF). Which works pretty good.

Why not just use program mode or something? No one will be able to tell you one set of settings that will work in every bright outdoor scenario. Only way to learn this stuff is to learn about aperture / ISO / shutter speed relationship and practicing.

Hi everyone,

I’m not particularly new to photography but I’m also not at the point where I can intuit what to do when presented with whatever shooting conditions are present.

I have a basic understanding, maybe it’s better to consider it knowledge as opposed to truly understanding, of how aperture/f stops, shutter speeds, and iso levels interact but I acknowledge that part of getting better is simply a matter of practice and experimentation. Still, it would be nice to get a head start on how to do things though lol

I’ve also had my Ricoh GR for about 2 years now and have read up quite a bit on it but maybe I’m just thick headed when it comes to photography or something just hasn’t quite clicked yet. I do enjoy shooting with the little black box though and I’ve actually gotten a lot of photos that I really like but most of them have been either luck or I’ve had the time to take multiple photos to be able to select the one I liked most.

At the moment, I’d really like like help configuring the settings on my Ricoh GR for a few scenarios. It may sound like I’m trying to do everything so please feel free to correct me and point me in the right direction.

I do most of my photography during family gatherings and tours or cruises when we go on vacation so I feel I don’t have much time to mess around with different settings otherwise I’ll likely miss the shot. I also carry no extra equipment, I prefer to carry only the camera.

I know with the Ricoh GR, there are the My1/2/3 settings and I was hoping I could configure them for the following shooting scenarios, unless someone can come up with something better or more appropriate to what I’m trying to do because I find it a daunting task to go through each setting and be able to visualize how each one affects the final image:

  1. Outdoor/plenty of light

  2. Indoor/low light

  3. Inside a moving vehicle

I think even just the first two may cover too broad a spectrum of situations, hence why I’m here asking for guidance lol

I like shooting with a lot of DoF and doing macro photography of insects or plants that I come across on my travels so I tend to shoot at f2.8 since that’s the lowest fstop I can go with the camera.

I’m also interested in playing around with black and white photography but I’m thinking that’s just something I can turn on with the effects.

If you need to know more, just let me know or if I should post some of my photos I can do that too. I’d just have to select photos that don’t have family members in them, I don’t know if they’re comfortable with photos of them being shared in public space but I do have other photos.

I’m not sure how I can TL;DR this so thanks if you managed to read this entire thing 🙂
