Frost with Ricoh GRD IV

I love the fact that the minimum focus distance is only 1 cm with Ricoh GRD IV. That makes this camera very cool device for close-ups. By shooting so close to your subject you can achieve nice background bokeh and the small sensor still allows enough DoF to get sharp shots.

Shallow DoF with Fuji X100

My long time Flickr friend Richard asked me in my last post that how shallow DoF I can achieve with Fuji X100. Here are two quick snapshots to demonstrate how shallow DoF and how smooth bokeh I’m about to achieve. Both shots are F2, 1/100, and ISO 2000. Both are shot using macro mode.
