I've been making an effort to get out of the house daily to try and take my mind off of depressing things for a bit. I made a point of dusting off the Ricoh GXR and its Leica M-mount A12 module this week. With the Voigtländer 40mm f/1.4 mounted, I get asked if it's a film camera a lot. (Then again, people ask that about the Hasselblad Lunar, which looks practically nothing like any film camera I've seen.)

Ricoh's cameras have an interface that is camera nerd friendly, almost as much so as the offerings from Fujifilm. I usually don't have to change much on the fly, though. I have the "Fn1" button set to toggle between color and monochrome, and I just power up the camera, give Fn1 a poke, and off I go...
