Today's picture is a street portrait taken with the high contrast b&w mode of the CX2. Like the R10 and CX1 before I really like the camera with the standout feature for me being the high contrast b&w mode. This looks grweat and gives much better results than the standard b&w mode with no noise reduction smearing going on. I like the crisp images and noise it produces and with the EV +1, as used here, you can get pictures similar to the text mode but with better definition. I really hope Ricoh can add this mode to the GRD III.
My internet access over the last week has been limited so I could not reply to the comments but will reply to all by tomorrow.
