    I hope this is in the right place, if not can a Mod please move for me :D

    Hey guys, so I've just bought a Ricoh GR III as my Leica D-LUX 4 broke and a friend recommended I try a Ricoh as they are more durable, which does seem to be the case on first impressions!

    I fell in love with the 'pin hole' scene mode on my Leica which produced images such as the following..

    & wanted to know if there is there a way of customizing the settings on my Ricoh to replicate the style of images above? So I don't have to edit each picture in Photoshop afterwards.

    Thanks!

    I think its better just photoshopping the photo you want a vignette on, because not all photos suit a vignette :D

    Yeah, you're just noticing the vignetting, which is the darkening of the corners. There are lenses (focal length & aperture combination's) that produce more of a vignette, but your best bet is to add it in post-processing, if that's what you're wanting. It's a personal preference, and many will say not flattering for every picture.

    As for your question about settings on the Ricoh, I don't know.
