First! (never done that before 🙂 )Interesting video guys!
comparing APS-C and 1-inch sensor? no, thanks
This time for me it's pretty hard to decide. Think I love the candid moment of #22. Although there is something about #5 I really like. In any case Danae wins for me.
Surprising to me I like the Canon shots the best. Colors and tones are great
Denae needs a nap.
This photo duel was defiantly different and interesting in a good way. My picks for this video are #2, #3, #12, #13, #15, #18, #22
My fav has got to be number 3. And I’d say 14 is my second choice
I think #15 takes it for me. That's the face we all make when faced with an impossible decision. I actually laughed out loud when I saw that one.
I was waiting for the signs like #17 Denae IPhone7 heheheheheSorry, couldn't resist !
I was surprised how i like the lumix pics!!! Figured the Ricoh would blow the others away. Great duel!!! #2 for the win!!!
#’s 4, 22, & 24
Very interested to know your thoughts about the GRIII. Any chance you'd review it?
Love my GRiii especially when paired with FlashQ20II, the leaf shutter allows high off camera flash sync speeds. It makes some great results with a red or yellow gel in high contrast B+W mode. Thanks for the video.
Love them and so difficult to pick.. Maybe 3, 5, 12, 15, 16, 18, 20. PS. The cat is adorable!
A vote for #3!Really looking forward to hearing your thoughts on all of these cameras. I don't know if it was just my taste, or if the photos were actually better, but I preferred your shots with the Canon to the Ricoh. Maybe you were having more fun with it, or maybe just the opportunities were better?
Andrew Thank you, Thank you for trying out the GR III !! Although I do understand that a view finder would be handy on it. I feel that after a short while you get use to not having it. I have an A7 III, A6600, Canon M50 and a Ricoh GR III and ever since I moved over to mirrorless I hardly ever use the VF on any of my systems, maybe only to confirm focus after shooting a shot. I will have to say that although it may be to personal taste your GR III photos smoked the LX100 in character and quality specially the B&W. The GR III just has that magic look in their photos. When it comes to quality and pocket size camera the GR III is King and hard to beat.
Wish you could have added x100F
So many good shots but #2, #5 & #12 for me. I just picked up the X70 used and despite a few quirks I still love it for documenting kids and everyday life.
For me is #2 and #20. Great video, as usual.
I much prefer these photo duel/ reviews. Much better quality of life comparison.
interesting stuff guys, I own the GR3 but like you, find it a pain to use without a viewfinder so Im going to replace it with either the 16mm 2.8 for my Xpro 2 or another compact, possibly the Canon you guys are using here. Great timing for me! pic 20 gets my vote!
I vote for #13. Thanks.
My vote goes to #20 this round. Great images!
Suggest you add the Fuji XF10 to your test group. You have a nice "vertical" comparison (i.e., size vs zoom/EVF), but the Fuji would be a good "horizontal" comparison for the Ricoh (i.e., same sensor size, half the price, street features compared – snap focus, color comparison, ergos, etc.).
Love when Denae comes up the winner! But it will be Sooooo hard to choose between candids of your kids!
15 & 18
#20 was my favorite! The Ricoh shots looked really nice though
Ricoh GR III such an interesting pocket camera!
#3 #5 #12 #15#27 are favorites.
Once you map lens control ring to change zoom, you can select option to have zoom jump between normal focal lengths – 24, 35, 50, 75 mm. (Also works with lever around shutter release).
Everything is in scenery – of course, the one you see, the way you see it. You guys equalized the cameras. IMO, there are two types of camera for documentary missions. One is the discreet one, useful in a kinda dangerous environment (these days I think is less tempting for a thief than an expensive phone – with a point&shoot you can't make calls), the other one is the best practical camera for you,.
The quality of all the pics were great but my favourite would be number 3. Looking forward to your review to see how the others compare
No love for the Sony Rx100 mark 1-4 ?!?!?!
#23, next #3 and #2
#28 is my favorite
Just goes to show brands really don't matter. You're going to get great results with basically any camera!
#3 for me, fun duel…
23 all day long!
#20 but sooo hard to choose!!
#5 & #28, can't decide, sorry 😅
My top pick is #3 and close second #10. Great video guys! Felt natural and home-like to see you document your family for the duel. Thank you both.
So many great images in this one. Can I call it a draw please???
Danae's just on fire!! I feel for you fella… 😂😂😂
Thanks for highlighting the family documentary use case for advanced point and shoots. Totally overlooked in a lot of reviews (admittedly maybe niche). We picked up an LX10 when we started our family. My main criteria was it had to fit in a tiny diaper bag pocket and have an automated lens cover, lol. So nice to have a decent camera with some controls you can bring anywhere. Great stuff as usual!
Oh and #20 is awesome.
#3 and #12 for me, guys. Good work by both of you though!
Wow I am surprised how much better the Ricoh pics are, they blow the Lumix out of the water. The canon seems hit or miss, some of the shots looked great and then another would come up and make me go, "huh, maybe not". Ricoh seems consistently great.
#23 is a pure shot 🙏
12, 20, 23. I've had LX100 for couple of years but then I realised I cannot live without interchangable lens system 🙂 And then I also realised that Sony aps-c with 16-50 kit is almost as small as LX100 and it is better to have just one system, one color science, one card to download from etc.
Great job.There's just no way to pick a favorite! Gotta admit, there was just "something"about the Ricoh photos, especially the colors, that had me going back for another look. I also like its size, although not its fixed focal length. Canon colors were the runner up for me. Can't wait for your final comparison!
For me #15 🙂
Ooooh, tough call on picking just the one favourite… I'm going to go with #9, even though I really did like the colours (especially the monochrome!) from the Lumix.
This is one of my favorite episodes that you’ve both posted. Great photos and I really enjoyed it!
#11 but I hate cats
Great duel!! there is something special about ricoh, #11 for the win! I'm surprised with the lumix, excellent photos too.
#12, #20, #27
Number 20 for me, great fun shot! Sorry, Andrew… 😉
Overall Denae took better photos of the kids. Which one of her photos was best is hard to say. I really couldn't decide which of her photos was best just that as a group they are better than Andrew's. Sorry Andrew.
12 & 20
I'm gonna go for #11
I think I like the contrast and dynamic range on griii.photo 10 of the dog…. Dog guy here.
I vote #20!
Ricoh GR ftw! Although I love the Lumix too. I still have the GR II, actually. Great value second hand these days. It's the one camera I always carry with me.My favourite shots are #8 and #10.
Great photo duel as always! All pictures are really good but I like your photos best, Denae, followed by your photos taken on the Canon, Andrew, and I like the Ricoh pictures the least. Having said that – to me #12 is the exception from the above being the best picture!
I shoot Fuji and love them. So I find the X100F and X-T10 (20 or 30) as portable as the cameras you used. The only pocketable one was the GR III. And although I didn't have a favorite, I liked the images from the GR III. Fun video. I enjoyed it. I do own a Canon S90 that is very pocketable and produces some nice images, and can be shot completely manual.
Number3 was nice shot
I like Denae's #20 with the Panasonic LX100 with your son in the air with goggles in monochrome. Seems as if most of the Panasonics were shot at the wide 24mm end maybe wide-open aperture. Wide at 24mm and even wider is my preferred style and the distortion even adds to the effect.
There are terrific older versions of these cameras available used for a $100 or less. I have the Panasonic LX3 (from 2010?) at 10 MP, 24-60mm lens, f2.0 with an optical viewfinder, a classic. The old Ricoh GX100 has beautiful, rich colors from these older CCD sensors with 24-72mm lens and does great macros, often available with a tiltable EVF for $100. Also the Ricoh GR 8 MP from 2008 with a fixed 28mm lens does classic monochrome. It's a little slow in that RAW files take about 15 seconds to write but the JPEG B&W are gorgeous and will take an optical viewfinder. The Canon G11 and the rangefinder-style Fujifilm X10 have built-in optical viewfinders. Grabbed a well-used original Sony RX100 for a little over a $100. That era of compacts were advanced and now available for a song.
Very interesting! I love my Lumix, and wouldn't consider the other three for various reasons.
Photos #15 and #20 🙂
2 for me. Great video
She said ‘OK’ 372 times…
Man this is a tough one! #20….I was really hoping one of you would shoot the Sony. Just bought that camera and received it today so i'm interested in your thoughts on it. Great video as always.
Great photos all of them. Many which makes one think that these are still relevant in the smartphone era. Also I felt it did not matter much which camera was used. So choice of camera is more driven by the shooting experience than the end product.
Great shots … results show that camera is least important thing.
#18. I so much miss my LX100 which I drowned in a petting pool at the aquarium. I carried it around whenever in interesting places or with good people.
Always love the photo duels. Tough to pick a fav, but I keep coming back to #5. I rented all of the same cameras (except Rx100vi instead of vii) as well as the XF10, and ended up buying the GRIII to replace my aging original GR. The fact that it will slide in my jeans pocket just can't be beat, and the images convert to B&W better than any other camera I own. If they could keep it pocketable and make it an f2 I would cry.
#23 and #24 by Andrew are amazing. Love the lighting, looks so unique.
Mon classement #5 #12 #24 #23
