Ricoh's GXR Digital Camera is an entirely new approach to digital camera versatility. The GXR system consists of a body and camera units (sold separately). Each camera unit contains a lens (focal lengths differ between units), an image sensor of optimum type and size for the unit, and an image processing engine. This means that each unit is the perfect marriage of convenience and performance - not only are the lens and sensor matched for optimum performance, but the risk of dust marks on the sensor is also reduced. The slide mechanism for attaching and removing camera units enables changes to be made quickly and securely. The Ricoh GXR Digital Camera body is constructed from a magnesium alloy which keeps it light without compromising on strength. As you would expect with a modern digital camera, the Ricoh GXR Digital Camera still offers a wealth of shooting options and features, such as a maximum ISO of 3200, various image modes and a 3 inch LCD screen.

GXR shooting functions


ISO3200 sensitivity, a strong ally in shooting dark scenes and preventing subject blur
You can turn off the flash to shoot images that preserve an ambient-light atmosphere. You can prevent subject blur. The GXR has a maximum ISO3200 setting for all camera units. Through the synergy effects generated by combining a high-sensitivity image sensor with an advanced image processing engine, you can get natural-looking images with a low-noise feel even at high sensitivity levels. In addition to the AUTO setting leaving the sensitivity level up to the camera, you can select AUTO-HI, which allows the photographer to define the maximum automatic setting allowed, or manually specify the sensitivity yourself.

Freedom to create the best image quality. Image settings adjustable to 9 levels
Image settings include Vivid, Standard, Natural, Black & White, B&W (TE), and Setting. In addition, for Black & White, B&W (TE), and Setting, the contrast and sharpness can be adjusted to 9 levels. When photographs are to be printed and framed, you can increase the sharpness to give a "crisp" feel, or create a more natural-feeling resolution by reducing sharpness for images to be printed in a large format. With this ability to specify settings at many levels across a wide range, you will be free to delicately fine tune images to match your preferences and goals.

Seize that shutter chance. Full press snap
With this quick-shooting function, a one-push full-press of the shutter-release button instantly takes the shot, skipping the usual AF operation. For full press snap on the GXR, it is possible to select from the following focus distances: 1m, 1.5m, 2m, 2.5m, 3m, 3.5m, 5m, or infinity. This ability to precisely define the steps enables the GXR to fine tune shooting style for a variety of focus distances between camera unit and subject. Even if a snap focus distance is defined, AF operates when the shutter-release button is pressed halfway. Pressing it the rest of the way then takes the picture using AF.

The focus is ready when you are. Pre-AF
The GXR automatically identifies the subject and continues to focus. So when the shutter-release button is pressed halfway, the lens is already at a focus distance close to optimum. Since the focusing is quickly done, you can shoot with greater ease.

Natural images closer to what the eye sees. Multi-pattern auto white balance
A subject illuminated by flash and a background of incandescent light. A subject in bright sun and a background in shadow. With traditional white balance functions that apply an average white balance to the entire frame, when there are areas with two different colour temperatures, it is likely that one of them will end up converted to an unnatural colour. The GXR uses multi-pattern auto white balance, which segregates the image into multiple areas and applies the optimum white balance to each. Therefore, even if the subject and background have different white balance values, they are both reproduced with natural colours.

Don't miss the moment. M-continuous plus
In addition to the regular continuous shooting function, the GXR has M-continuous plus. The camera shoots continuously while the shutter-release button is pressed, and it records the 30 still images shot just before the instant you remove your finger from the shutter-release button. Shooting continuously, you can be sure you will be ready when that unforeseeable moment arrives. Continuous shooting speed with the GR LENS A12 50 mm camera unit is 24 frames/second for 1 second, and with the RICOH LENS S10 24-72 mm camera unit you can select from M-Cont Plus (HI), at 30 frames/second for 1 second, or M-Cont Plus (LO), at 15 frames/second for 2 seconds.

Accurate camera levelling for stable composition. Tilt indicator
When photographing nature, it can be difficult to determine if the camera is level, and shooting at night may be no visual clues to judge by. Even in such situations, the tilt indicator makes it possible to find the precise level position. It is also useful for preventing camera tilt during daytime street photography in which line of sight tends to converge on the subject. You will see a change in the stable feel of your image composition.

Three grid guides
In addition to the traditional three-by-three grid guide that is said to provide a stable feel to the image, two other grid patterns are also provided. The four-by-four grid with diagonal lines is effective for finding the centre of the subject when photographing buildings or products. With the centre of the frame left clear, the two-by-two grid makes it easier to shoot moving subjects. From among the three grid guides, chose the one that is best for your subject and shooting style.
