Get Real. Capture the Truth.

Ricoh PX Digital Camera The first Ricoh GR-series camera to provide built-in Wi-Fi and NFC connectivity, the Ricoh GR II Digital Camera continues the legacy of the previous version with a large 16.2 MP APS-C CMOS sensor, delivering high-resolution images with low noise as high as to ISO 25600. By leaving out the optical low-pass filter, the sensor can create sharper images with rich colors and when integrated with the GR ENGINE V it operates efficiently and quickly in creating images. In addition to this is the Ricoh GR 35mm equivalent 18.3mm f/2.8 lens, which will help creating crisp images in all lighting situations.

Using the GR ENGINE V to it's advantage is the High-Speed AF system, locking focus in a scant 0.2 seconds. The camera also starts up in just 1 second and delivers continuous shooting at 4 fps. Full 1080p HD video recording is available at up to 30 fps using autofocus. And, it includes wireless flash featuring built-in flash unit which lets users remotely run their AF360FGZII and AF540FGZII flashes as slave units

The GR is engineered to be compact with a mobile magnesium alloy body. It retains a classic GR style with a solid hand grip for support and physical control buttons for intuitive operation. A dedicated AF button and aperture preview button is included The camera can also acquire either JPEG or DNG RAW images for full domination over post-processing.
