Ricoh 175843 overview

  • 1Description

The first GR-series camera to feature built-in Wi-Fi and NFC connectivity, the GR II Digital Camera from Ricoh continues the legacy of its predecessor with a large 16.2MP APS-C CMOS sensor, providing high-resolution images with low noise at up to ISO 25600. By omitting the optical low-pass filter, this sensor is able to squeeze out sharper images with rich colors and when combined with the GR ENGINE V it operates quickly and efficiently in creating images. On top of this is a Ricoh GR 18.3mm f/2.8 lens, equivalent to 28mm in 35mm terms, which will assist in creating sharp images in all lighting conditions.

Benefitting from the GR ENGINE V is the High-Speed AF system, locking focus in just 0.2 seconds. The camera will also start up in just 1 second and offers continuous shooting at 4 fps. Full HD 1080p video recording is possible at up to 30 fps with autofocus. And, it has wireless flash control with the built-in flash unit which allows users to remotely operate their AF360FGZII and AF540FGZII flashes as slave units.

The GR is designed to be compact with a portable magnesium alloy body. It maintains a classic GR styling with a solid handgrip for comfort and physical control buttons for natural operation. This includes a dedicated AF button and aperture preview button. The camera can also capture in either JPEG or DNG RAW images for full control over post-processing.

16.2MP APS-C CMOS Sensor with No Optical Low-Pass Filter
Using a large APS-C CMOS sensor, the GR II is able to capture high-resolution 16.2MP images and video with low noise and excellent color accuracy. Further, this sensor omits the optical low-pass filter for achieving the highest possible sharpness and resolution in your imagery.
GR ENGINE V Image Processor
The advanced GR ENGINE V imaging engine offers high-sensitivity shooting with minimal noise and fast response times, including fast autofocus and up to 4 fps continuous shooting. This also benefits the AF system with the ability to lock on in as fast as 0.2 seconds. The camera will even start up in just 1 second.
Portable Body Design
The GR-series uses a magnesium alloy to stay lightweight and portable while its exterior design is optimized for compactness and comfort. Numerous physical controls are laid out in an intuitive manner to ensure users will be able to quickly access their settings at a moment's notice. It also offers dedicated AF and aperture preview buttons for DSLR-like handling.
Full HD 1080p Video Recording
Capture high resolution full HD 1080p video at up to 30 fps. It uses H.264 compression to realize the high definition images without taking up too much space on your cards and hard drives. AF also remains active during shooting for ensuring your subject remains sharp throughout the video.
Wireless Flash Function
Using the built-in flash, the GR II can wirelessly communicate with the AF360FGZII and AF540FGZII External Flashes. This allows users to quickly and easily set up a complete lighting solution without worrying about cables or additional triggers and receivers.
DNG RAW and JPEG File Formats
Take complete control of your images in post by using the DNG RAW format or create standard, easily accessible JPEGs with the GR II. The camera also offers in-body RAW development for computer-free editing of your files.
Built-In Wi-Fi Connectivity with NFC
A first for the GR-series, this camera offers built-in Wi-Fi connectivity with NFC, for quick tap-to-connect functionality. This allows it to wirelessly connect to smartphones and tablets for remote operation and transfer of images.

Ricoh 175843 reviews

GR II Digital Camera is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 73.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite compact! I use this camera for street photography and when I am out and about with friends. The resolution is incredibly sharp comparable to my Canon 70D. I appreciate the fact that the camera is so light, and shooting with 28mm fixed lens is freeing in the sense that I am not bothered to decide on a focal length. The crop factor of 35mm or 47mm works well for those times when I'm shooting further distances. Although I don't feel the need often. It is well built with a solid light feel. Focus is good, but Snap Focus is key. With Snap focus you can set the camera to a specific focus distance and you don't have any focus lag when shooting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ricoh GR II even better than expected. I bought the Ricoh GR II. I came down the the II and the Fuji X70. I reviewed a great many images online and the Ricoh's seem a bit sharper than the Fuji. At least the images were more towards my taste. Camera fast to start up. The images are really good. I am blown away by the b+w images the GR II produces. They are special. Color really good but b+w has a wow factor. Battery life better than expected but I still ordered a spare. As usual B&H got the camera to me in record time. I mean from NY to Massachusetts in what seemed like a day and a half. A solid purchase. B&H

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a remarkable little camera I don't have much to add to the reviews here and elsewhere on this camera. Even if the design is a few years old, I still think that this is the best you can get for this money and with this concept in 2017. I have other gear (Pentax K-1 DSLR etc) but this might well become my go-around camera. I especially like the snap focus and the ease of switching between it and AF. Very rarely a product exceeds your expectations, but this little camera really did just that. Let's hope the next revision will be water and dust proof, have the Pentax KP sensor and have GPS, and I'm getting it as soon as you can get it. Before that, I have no regrets for getting this model.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Addictive Looking for a walkabout camera instead of schlepping my ASP-C �sensor SDLR, the GR seemed right for me. My typical walk around lens was a 35mm (35mm=52mm), so the ASP-C sensor 28mm Gr seemed a bit wide. For the street or portraits you need to get close. But after shooting for a couple of days, I was acclimated. The camera fits in your hand like it's part of it. It fits in your pocket and focusing is quick. Set it to snap focus and you don't need to focus. I shot with RAW+ with effects JPEGs, but I prefer to process �the RAW files to my style. Colors are accurate and and sharpness is spot on. The interface is customizable, so all you have to think about is your shot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The greatest point and shoot ever made. Period. I really have tried to find something to gripe about with this camera. I just can't. This camera is just so well thought out and executed and delivers so much for it's price. I can only speak for my Leica Q owning friends, but they all love stealing my camera for a few moments when out and about. My only fear is that future improvements are not really improvements and possibly ruin the perfection that this camera has already achieved. My message to Ricoh, if it ain't broke, don't fix it. The firmware updates are also amazing, so I have to give Ricoh credit there as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Made for the streets My Ricoh GR1 film camera recently stoped working so i decided to try out the most recent digital version of it. After sometime getting used to the digital work flow i got to say I love this camera. It has everythting I loved about the early Ricoh GR film cameras. Its all black simple design that fits comfortable when holding it. The feature and menus are simple to navigate through and use. I would recommend this camera to anyone that is looking to take photographs in the streets. This is very deceiving camera. It looks like a small tourist camera but packs a punch like a pro.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 2018 and I still haven't found a better street camera Guys, it's 2018 and I still haven't found a better general purpose street photography camera. A full frame with a retro fitted Olympus 28mm manual lens is the closest I've come and that is magnitudes bigger than this. The sharpness and nearly always perfect metering net a ton of keepers from this gem. I'm buying a second and stowing it away in an air tight container for a rainy day. The combination of near perfect manual controls, compact form factor and unsurpassed sharpness makes this a bargain under $1,000.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Lightweight Camera I bought this camera to be my secondary camera (1st being 5d Mark III). Great all around camera. Very lightweight, full manual functions, auto-focus is pretty quick. It's a fixed lens (equivalent to 28mm), but there are 2 crop modes (35mm & 47mm) that I programmed into one of my function keys for a quick change. Con: The biggest one I have is auto-focus at night. It has a hard time finding focus points, so it'll hunt for a few seconds...sometimes it won't even focus. There is a snap focus feature, in which you set the focal length, but only ideal for when you know you're taking photos of subjects a certain distance away. For me, all the pro's outweigh the one con I have for it. Overall, great camera. I carry it everyday.
