I really have to thank Wouter Brandsma a lot for posting great shots using Ricoh GR’s positive film effect (there are also shots processed with VSCO Film 04). His article gave me a needed push to put my GR in the positive mode. Have to say that the colors using this effect are fantastic straight out of the camera and they give nice flashback to my pre-digital era when I shot slide film. The positive film effect is now registered into My2 setting in my GR and I know I am going to use that setting a lot. My other “My” settings are high contrast B&W and standard B&W. These three are my JPEG presets for my GR. Quite cool and nice I have to say. I can still go to RAW shooting just by turning the selection wheel to TaV (or other modes beside My modes) if I want.
It is so great to read blogs written by other photographers and get some positive push to your own photography! Thanks again, Wouter!
EDIT: Info from Wouter: “I use this image effect to my registred color setting on the camera. It only saves a RAW image, but I get a sense for what I can expect when post processing.”. Thanks for this clarification.
