RicohRicoh GXR camera system : Ricoh announce the release of the GXR interchangeable unit camera system featuring the world's smallest and lightest digital camera with the ability to change lenses. The new Ricoh GXR is an interchangeable unit camera system in which lenses are changed by using a slide-in mount system to attach camera units to the body. The lens, image sensor, and image processing engine are integrated into the camera units so the body itself does not contain an image sensor. With world-leading small size and low weight enabling easy carrying, the Ricoh GXR camera system features a highly rigid magnesium alloy body and multiple camera units that can be changed to best fit the scene to be photographed.

With the Ricoh GXR you can enjoy easy lens changes as well as amazing image quality and shooting flexibility. Concealing infinite possibilities in its small body, the Ricoh GXR is a revolutionary camera system that pioneers a new realm of photography.

Ricoh GXR digital camera features
• Lens, image sensor, and image processing engine comprise an integrated unit which can be changed to match the scene being photographed.

Ricoh GXR features an elegant design
• For the exterior, we utilized die cast magnesium, which has a strong track record in the GR series, and we covered the surface with a corrosion-resistant "pear-skin" coating. The end result is a body with superior levels of durability, light weight, and feel in hand.
• Building on the operation control designs of the GR series and GX series, the GXR has several types of customizable buttons as well as the new Direct button, which the photographer can use to see many current settings at a glance. Sophisticated shooting settings can now be made faster than ever before.
• The directional pad, the three My Settings, the ADJ.lever, and the function buttons all contribute to the even greater operability achieved by the Ricoh GXR.
• The grip form allows the Ricoh GXR to be firmly held despite its small size, and the suitably yielding rubber material on the grip surface enables the camera to feel like an integral part of the hand.

Ricoh GXR interchangeable lens camera
• By integrating lens, image sensor, and image processing engine into a single optimized unit, we were able to created a compact camera with interchangeable lenses.
• The adoption of this new system has made it possible to achieve both "pocket size for go-anywhere portability" and "the highest image quality for every photographic situation and subject."
• Since the image sensor is not exposed when lenses are changed, the camera's structure makes it inherently difficult for dirt and dust to get inside.
• Putting image processing engines in both the body and the camera units, our focus was on achieving the highest image quality.

Ricoh GXR macro camera unit

Ricoh GR Lens A12 50mm F2.5 Macro camera unit
• This camera unit uses a 23.6 mm x 15.7 mm (APS-C size) CMOS sensor with approximately 12.30 megapixels. In combination with image processing engine GR Engine III, it achieves high-image-quality photography with high definition, low noise, and smooth tonal gradations.
• A newly developed GR Lens with an 8-group, 9-element configuration (aspherical lens: 1 element, two surfaces) is featured. Representing a further advancement in the GR tradition of high image quality, the lens thoroughly corrects for various types of aberrations. Despite the compact size, it is also a full-fledged macro lens with a floating lens structure. At shooting distances from infinity down to the 1/2x maximum magnification macro range, it achieves strong imaging power all the way to the edge of the frame. In addition, the low level of vignetting means that the photographer can enjoy rich and genuine bokeh effects.
• The manual focus ring is perfect for use in macro photography as it makes highly precise focusing possible. It can also be used to make fine manual adjustments to the focus after autofocus is done.

In combination with advanced image processing engine Smooth Imaging Engine IV, it achieves high-image-quality photography with high definition and low noise.
• The lens is a 24 mm to 72 mm high-performance 3x wide-angle zoom with superior usability. Utilizing a 7-group, 11-element configuration (aspherical lens: 4 elements, 4 surfaces) that includes special low-dispersion lenses, this lens achieves high dimensions of both compactness and imaging power.
• A camera shake correction function (image-sensor-shift type) to reduce hand- motion blur.
• The self-retaining lens cap has been a popular GX series option, and a Ricoh GXR version is available as option LC-2.

With a 100% field of view, it displays information in the same way as the picture display, thus enabling the photographer to shoot in a film camera style.
