Despite its compact form, the Pentax Ricoh GR High Performance Compact Digital Camera incorporates a highly sensitive APS-C sized CMOS sensor that achieves exceptionally detailed and beautifully sharp shots.
Capturing with GR
Superbly constructed and a joy to use, the Pentax Ricoh offers a wide selection of functions and a performance that will inspire, all in a handy pocket-friendly size.
At the heart of the camera sits a large 16 MP CMOS image sensor that captures more detail in every shot. Colour is true-to-life and image noise is significantly reduced. The GR ENGINE V processing chip has been developed to accommodate the needs of the powerful image sensor. The first-rate sensor works hand-in-hand with the lens to produce flawless photos that burst with detail and life.
A wide-angle 28 mm equivalent in the 35 mm format GR LENS uses a fixed focal length to capture creative compositions. The lens construction uses precise placement of aspherical high-precision molded glass lenses for aberration removal and reduced ghosting. The multi-coating on all surfaces fights against backlighting and distortion.
You can shoot beautiful blurring effects and use the ND filter to manually control expression. When it comes to composing your pictures you'll find the Pentax Ricoh intuitive and rewarding to use, whether you're looking through the bright optical viewfinder or using the 3" LCD screen.
Focusing and exposure
Swiftly switch between Continuous AF and AE/AF Lock and expand your shooting possibilities. With high-speed focusing and AE tracking the Pentax camera ensures you never miss a pivotal moment again. The camera responds to fast shooting with results that are crisp and correctly exposed.
A built-in Electronic Level allows you to check the incline of the shot when composing the subject; the level is displayed at the bottom of the screen.
Shutter and aperture priority modes automatically select the ISO according to your preferred aperture and shutter speed settings. You can now experience an expressive performance from a compact camera with high-sensitivity qualities.
The Pentax Ricoh GR boasts a macro mode that lets you shoot as close as 10 cm, capturing beautiful blurring effects of close-up subjects that flawlessly stand out.
An Interval Composite function continuously shoots a night sky for a specific interval before extracting and merging the bright image data, resulting in stunning light trails of stars and the moon.
The multi-exposure shooting opens up creative doors and enables you to capture the best possible results. The mode merges up to five shots to achieve the image you want.
You can also shoot Full HD movies that can be played back on your HDTV through the available HDMI slot.
Reliable and durable, the Pentax Ricoh GR High Performance Compact Digital Camera is the ideal tool for achieving perfect photography without being weighed down with equipment.
