Dust on Sensor

bagglady, B&H Photo
14 May 2015
  • Excerpt: Nice camera until I saw the big dust blob on my photos. The GR Is known for dust on the sensor but I didn't think it would right out of the box! The photos are awesome though so I am awaiting my 2nd GR in hopes for a cleaner unit. Great camera though!
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Great Resolution, Small / Compact
  • Cons: Limited Zoom, No Viewfinder, Poor Image Stabilization

  • Excerpt: I've owned this camera for over a year and its has yielded me some of the best images i've shot on the street with it. I mean what else could you ask for? APS-C sensor, 16mp decent low light ability and a very very fast AF system in good light and its almost the size of my iphone 5s (just thicker)...
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Good in Low Light, Great Resolution, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact

Great pictures/Flaky firmware

  • Excerpt: This camera is really entirely customizable as you'd read in every reviews. It takes great RAWs with a rather neutral color rendering for plenty of room in editing. It goes into a pocket, is fast and all, but there is probably a B I G firmware problem, at least with my copy, as the camera freezes...

Good, but not perfect...

Inspector Gadget, Amazon
27 December 2014
  • Summary: Although many have raved about this camera as the perfect carry-everywhere camera, I was underwhelmed by it's performance, and ultimately decided to return it. I was looking for a small camera as an alternative to the Fuji X100S, but while it has the same size (APS-C) sensor, the low light...

Dust on sensor a common problem despite fixed lens, sealed unit

Adam K., Amazon
10 November 2014
  • Summary: This could actually be a wonderful camera as the handling, build quality and most importantly, the image quality is excellent. But within days of owning the camera and having kept it in a suitable case, dust found its way on to the sensor despite this being a sealed unit with a fixed lens.

Rota a los pocos días de comprarla

  • Excerpt: Pues yo me las prometia muy felices, pero nada más lejos de la realidad, con un trato normal y sin hacer demasiadas fotos la cámara se ha bloqueado a los nueve días de comprarla. La GR no aguanta ni la más leve señal de batalla y se rompe a la primera de cambios.
