New Recipes for Ricoh GR!

Captured with the new Vibrant Teal recipe for Ricoh GR III

Ricoh GR owners rejoice! I just published a new Recipe Collection, called The California Negative Collection, for the Ricoh GR III and Ricoh GR IIIx cameras! Find it at Ritchie’s Ricoh Recipes, and on the Ricoh Recipes App!

Also, the Ricoh Recipes App received an update, which fixed some bugs and added the ability to search for recipes by name. If you have the App, be sure to update it manually if your phone didn’t do so automatically.

    Cool thanks! any way to improve the positive film sim on GR 3 to make it look more like the original GR? Thanks!

      I’ve taken a look it this, and it is much trickier than it might seem at first glance. I think the sensor plays a big role, and the 16mp has more character but is less crisp, while the 24mp is more clinical and technically “better” but with less character, and I think that effects the aesthetic. Not to mention that Pentax altered the color science and settings between these models for some reason. I appreciate the suggestion!

    What would be the closest simulation to these for X-Trans III (If any)?
    Love the calif blues and it’s making me jealous of Ricoh users!

      Fujifilm and Ricoh have a different color science and JPEG options, so you’re not going to find anything identical. However, let me offer these suggestions:

      For something somewhat similar to Vibrant Analog, try…
      Kodak Ektachrome 100SW, Ektachrome E100GX, Classic Kodak, Kodak Ultramax

      For something somewhat similar to Vibrant Teal, try…
      Cross Process (for X-T30, which uses Classic Chrome, and is compatible with X-Trans III), Cine Teal

      For something somewhat similar to Vintage Print, try…
      Kodak GT 800-5, Vintage Kodacolor, Aged Color

      For Something somewhat similar to Chrome Slide, try…
      Classic Slide, Classic Chrome

      For something somewhat similar to Aged & Faded, try…
      Vintage Agfacolor, Xpro, Melancholy Blue

      For something somewhat similar to Cross Process, try…
      Cross Process (for X-Trans III, which uses Provia)

      I hope this helps!
