Ricoh has this week added a new addition to their range of compact cameras, in the form of the newly launched Ricoh GR, which is equipped with a 16 megapixel APS-C-Sized Sensor and priced at $800.
The new Ricoh GR compact camera and its APS-C-sized CMOS image sensor has been designed to provide a shallow depth of field, exceptional low-light performance and a wide dynamic range for remarkable images across a wide variety of shooting styles, says Ricoh.
Other features of the Ricoh GR compact include a newly developed and optimised 18.3mm (28mm in 35mm format) F2.8 lens, GR Engine V imaging processor, ISO 25600, and high-speed auto focus system that can focus on a subject in a mere two-tenths (0.2) of a second. Jim Malcolm, Executive Vice President of Pentax Ricoh Imaging America explains:
“The introduction of the RICOH GR marks a new standard of confidence in the compact camera segment,”-“The RICOH GR camera’s unparalleled set of robust features and hardware completely redefines what can be expected from a compact camera.”
“Instantaneous photo and video sharing is now a breeze with the GR’s optimized Eye-Fi SD card compatibility. Built-in menus allow the user to easily enable automatic transmission of images and video to a smartphone for rapid sharing. Users can even select favorite images and resize them before transmission.”
The Ricoh GR compact camera will be arriving in the US next month for $799.95Filed Under: Camera News
