Ricoh GR II – Aperture / Speed Combo

Hi!

After much reading in this forum I have decided to purchased a Ricoh GRii for street shooting and I have noticed something that is driving me crazy.

If I am shooting on Aperture Priority, setting it to F8 then the camera always chooses a Low speed with a lower ISO making my images super blurry. I would like the camera to prioritize the speed even if that would result on a higher ISO. But the camera chooses to keep the ISO down resulting on a low Speed. 

I have the same issue if I choose to shoot on a Shutter Speed priority. The camera chooses a very wide aperture to keep the ISO down, although I would much rather it keep a high aperture and push the ISO up. 

Since fast shutter speed and “medium” aperture (lets say F8) is advisable to keep the images sharp, (also considering I am using a set 1.5m focus distance), I wonder how people go around this with the RICOH.

I know that there is also another mode that lets me set the Aperture and the Speed and the camera chooses the ISO but I don’t always set the right settings and it is not working well. 

I feel that other camera brands tend to think more like me and I never encounter this issue before.  Or maybe it wasn’t so noticeable.  Panasonic Lumix has a built in setting for “sports” that I used for street photography before and it was always a better fit that now I miss and it makes me regret buying a Ricoh. 

What do you guys suggest and thank you for reading this long first post.

Hi np,

maybe this helps, i use the Ricoh in AV mode and set ISO and aperture fix. Most of time i use f8-11 and ISO 800-3200. So the shutter will be automatic set to an higher speed like minimum 1/500 sec. If its to dark by ISO 3200 and the shutterspeed fall under 1/250 so i set die aperture to 2.8 and use the autofocus 🙂
