Ricoh Imaging Releases GR Limited Edition Camera Kit


Denver, CO—Ricoh Imaging Company launched a unique color version of its GR digital camera. Sporting a green Ricoh GR camera body, this top-of-the-line compact P&S has a specially designed grip and a set of exclusive accessories. The package will be available in a limited quantity of 5,000 units worldwide.

The GR Limited Edition set features a GR camera with a wave-patterned green body, a black wood grain grip, a lens ring with a diamond-engraved product name, a silver-finished ring cap and shutter-release button, and a GR Limited Edition logo displayed on the LCD monitor when power is off—packaged with a selection of colored accessories. In addition, the latest version of performance-enhancing firmware is preinstalled.

GR Limited Edition accessories include a hood and adapter with a shrink coating, a brown, genuine leather case and leather strap.

Developed as a successor to the GR Digital L IV, the GR inherited the product concept while upgrading the basic specifications and functions of its predecessor. It features a newly designed 18.3mm f/2.8 lens to assure sharp, clear resolution, even at the edges; an APS-C-size CMOS image sensor with 16.2 effective megapixels; the GR Engine V imaging engine; and an anti-aliasing filter-less design, with sensitivities up to ISO 25,600 for low-light performance. In addition to improvements in its quick shooting capability, an AF button and an aperture preview button were added to upgrade the camera’s operability during everyday shooting.

It also offers a range of user-assisting function, including in-body RAW data development, focus assist to facilitate manual focusing, image effect modes, multi-pattern AWB and dynamic range compensation functions, interval composite mode, Full HD movie recording at 30 frames per sec with the use of effects, and compatibility with wireless Eye-Fi memory cards.

Plus, the GR’s lens provides a nine-blade diaphragm to produce a natural bokeh effect at larger apertures, while creating artful light beams at smaller apertures. And thanks to its manually adjustable ND (neutral density) filter, the GR lets the user open the aperture up even in bright sunshine for a wider range of creative expression.
