This week Ricoh has taken the wraps off their new Ricoh GR II Silver Edition camera which has been created to commemorate the 80th anniversary of the formation of the Ricoh company.
The special edition camera package combines a silver finished GR II digital compact camera with an exclusively designed leather camera case. The Ricoh GR II Silver Edition camera will be available worldwide in a limited quantity of just 3,200 units and will be priced at $699.
Pre-ordering is expected to start very soon and the camera is laser etched with a white logo in the bottom front right of the casing. The original camera launched back in July 2015 and is equipped with a large, APS-C-size CMOS image sensor with approximately 16.2 effective megapixels.
The lens ion the camera takes the form of the GR 18.3mm F2.8 lens that offers a compact, high-performance GR lens with a focal length of 28mm (in the 35 mm format). Other features of the GR II Silver Edition include :
– Stylish silver camera body: The camera body has a high-grade, silver-color leather-tone finish, featuring an elegant, grained texture.
– Distinctive features compared to the standard GR II: The Silver Edition’s shutter release button and the ring cap have been finished in silver identical to that of the camera body. Additionally, the lens descriptions are engraved on the front ring using a diamond-cutting process and the GR logo’s color on the camera’s front panel has been changed to white. Even the product box has been specially designed for this package.
– Termination screen: When the camera’s power is turned off, the camera displays an original termination screen, which has a solid, high-grade design expressing the GR II’s product concept.
– Genuine leather camera case: The package includes a black, genuine-leather camera case exclusively designed for the GR II camera body. It provides features useful for quick-action snapshot photography, including a belt loop on the back, and a top cover that opens fully for easy removal of the camera body.
