Ricoh G700 overview

  • 1Description

The Ricoh G700SE Digital Camera has a 12.1Mp 1/2.3" CCD sensor to capture JPEG stills and 1280 x 720 HD video. The zoom lens not only provides a 5 to 25mm focal length, but it also puts 5x optical zoom at your fingertips as well. The camera also accepts 37mm filters for added protection or achieving a desired look. In regards to metering, the G700SE has multi light metering, center-weighted metering, and spot metering. The camera is capable of ISO ratings of 64 to 3200 (standard output) as well. Additionally, a built-in flash ensures that even shots in the dark or low light will come out.

For composition, review, and menu navigation, the G700SE has a 3.0" LCD on the rear of the camera body, giving you a generous platform on which to create your vision. Of course, without memory, you'd be going nowhere with the G700SE. This camera features an SD/SDHC and SD WORM card memory slot. There is a nominal 103MB internal memory which can be used for a few shots, giving you a small margin of wiggle-room.

The camera was designed with harsh environments in mind, such as a work site or hospital. Having gone through numerous tests, the G700SE is guaranteed waterproof to a depth of 16' (5.0 m) for a duration of 2 hr, and can stand up to a drop of 6.0' (1.8 m) and cold temperatures down to 14°F, among other extremes. It can even be operated with gloves on! A camera this tough will most definitely be able to survive your toddler as well. Additional tough-minded features include the use of industrial strength disinfectants on the device, such as sodium hypochlorite and ethanol.

Additional features of the camera include the novel, such as bar code reading for saving product information or other codes for future reference. The camera also comes equipped with Bluetooth Ver 2.1 +EDR function and wireless LAN (802.11b/g) functions. This allows you to send your images to a smartphone or other digital device, such as a computer. Other features, such as adding on an optional GPS unit, are available for the G700SE as well.

12.1Mp For More Precise Photo Reproduction
Sharply reproduce worksite conditions and even words written on a blackboard. Even after cropping, images remain crisp and vivid
28-140mm Non-Extending Optical 5x Zoom Captures Each Subject As Intended
The G700SE uses a 28-140mm (35mm equivalent) 5x optical zoom lens. With the ability to take photographs across a wide range impossible for a standard 35mm lens, the G700SE is convenient for shooting indoors and at other sites where it is not practical to back up. It also easily handles telephoto shooting
Additional Zoom Capability
Digital zoom at 4x, up to 20x (560mm equivalent) in combination with optical zoom. Auto resize zoom: 6.3x (VGA), up to 31.5x (882mm equivalent) in combination with optical zoom
Shock Resistance
Despite its small design, the G700SE has strengthened glass at the lens front surface and body protectors added at strategic points. This toughness enabled it to withstand 6' drops in 26 positions (6 surfaces, 8 corners, and 12 edges) in testing conforming to US Department of Defense "MIL Standard 810F." Furthermore, it also passes this test with the power on
Water Resistance
Water resistance is rated at JIS/IEC waterproof protection grade 8 so the G700SE can handle two hours of underwater photography at a depth of 16'. In addition to use at wet sites, the G700SE can also be used for shooting in the rain, and it can be washed in water if it gets dirty
Dust and Cold Resistance
Dust resistance, at JIS/IEC dustproof protection grade 6, guards against infiltration by dust and sand. The G700SE can also shoot in cold environments, with cold resistance able to handle temperatures down to 14°F
Chemical Resistance
The G700SE can be disinfected with ethanol or sodium hypochlorite, which has been approved as a food additive disinfectant. As a result, it can be safely used in medical facilities and production facilities

Images can be sent by high-speed data transfer to smartphones and other supported devices as well as to computers. The camera unit also supports WPS for simple connection and setup to wireless LAN networks. The camera can also multi-task, obtaining position information from an external GPS device via Bluetooth while transmitting images via wireless LAN to make your workflow easier
Optional GPS Unit with Electronic Compass GP-1
By connecting the optional compact GP-1 GPS unit, you can attach location information to pictures or movies taken with the camera. And thanks to the electronic compass support, you can also register direction information to recorded images. Even with the GP-1 attached, the camera supports IP64 dirt resistance and waterproofing, and can withstand the impact of a 3' fall
Bar Code Reader Function Useful for Camera Memo and Password Input
The reading of one and two dimensional bar codes is supported. The saving of bar codes as camera memos can be useful for freight management in logistics, prevention of patient data mix-ups in medical facilities, etc.
Optional Laser Barcode Reader Unit BR-1
The camera is able to read one-dimensional barcodes when the optional Barcode Unit BR-1 is attached. As the Barcode Unit BR-1 emits laser light in order to read the barcode, the recognition speed of the main camera lens section is very fast, and barcodes can be read even in dark places. Even with the BR-1 attached, the camera supports IP64 dirt resistance and waterproofing, and can withstand the impact from a 4' fall
Built-In Flash Reaches Up to 32'
For reliable photography even in dark sites such as tunnel interiors, the G700SE has a built-in flash with a range of 32' for wide-angle and 20' for telephoto. With high-sensitivity ISO 3200, the G700SE can also shoot in situations where flash cannot be used
Accessory Shoe
The accessory shoe (conforms to JIS B7101) makes it possible to shoot with commercially available flash units. This further expands the scenes which can be photographed
Mode Dial for Quick Mode Changes
In addition to the automatic shooting mode and scene mode, the camera is equipped with the CALS mode that supports a wide range of electronic delivery standards. Image size and quality can be selected from 6 types, ranging from "5M 4:3F" to "VGA 4:3F". The camera also has a "My Settings" mode. By registering often used settings such as image quality and ISO sensitivity in advanced, you can shoot using your preferred settings simply by turning the mode dial to" MY1" or" MY2"
Firefighting Mode
The focal length is fixed to 8' and ISO sensitivity is raised to enable shooting of clear photographs in the difficult conditions for autofocus at the scene of a fire. Sharpness processing is also done to lend still images a sharper feel
Adjust Button
By just pressing the ADJ. (adjust) button, you can easily specify exposure compensation, ISO sensitivity, and other settings
Electronic Vibration Correction Function
The G700SE utilizes the new electronic vibration correction function that takes two exposures at high speed with the differences being calculated. It is a powerful tool when shooting in low light and when shooting telephoto
Skew Correction Function
Rectangular objects photographed at an angle are corrected so they appear to have been shot squarely. The before-correction image is also recorded
Optional DW-5 Wide Conversion Lens
Now it is possible to shoot at an even wider 22mm equivalent. With the slim design, you can shoot without being bothered by lens bulk even when the conversion lens is attached
Even Surface Texture is Visible: 1cm Macro Shooting
With 0.40" wide-angle macro photography you can capture small screws and scratches and even vividly reproduce material textures. In addition, the flash can be used to illuminate subjects as close as 7.9"
Boasting a Wide Viewing Angle, The 3.0" 920,000 Dot Picture is Easy-To-See and Easy-To-Use
The G700SE has a large 3.0" 920,000-dot high-definition picture display. The wide angle and high contrast give high visibility even outdoors
Electronic Level Enables Level Photography
For level shooting, an electronic level is provided as a standard feature. It enables you to hold the camera in an accurate level position when shooting subjects such as buildings and interiors
Date Display When Camera is Turned On
Date information is indispensible when creating photographic records. By displaying the date from the time the camera is turned on until the shutter release button is pressed, this function helps prevent time data errors caused by incorrect date/time settings
SD WORM (Write Once Read Many) Memory Card Supported
The G700SE supports the SanDisk Corporation SD WORM (write once read many) card. Since deletes, changes, and card initialization cannot be done, these cards can be used in place of film for original documents when recording police, fire department, and defense-related scenes where data reliability might be questioned. When stored under suitable conditions, the data can be preserved for about 100 years
Camera Lock Functions For A Variety of Operational Controls
By defining a password, you can lock the camera. In addition to locking the camera as a whole or internal memory playback, you can also limit use to SD WORM cards or just restrict setting changes. The locks and restrictions can be removed through password entry with a software keyboard or bar code.
Camera Memo Functions Make Image Management Much Easier
When an image is not enough, up to 20 text or voice information fields can be recorded as memos together with the photograph. Selection from multiple memos (up to 99 files) is possible, and memos can also be recorded in internal memory
Included Software EX1 Writes Camera Memo Information
The included EX1 software enables files to be renamed based on the contents of camera memos and moved to the desired folder. This convenient function makes it easy to grasp the details of the camera memo from the file name. Additionally, camera memo information can be output in CSV, XML, or TXT formats
Image Edit Detection Function Increases Photo Credibility
The G700SE has a high-accuracy image edit detection function to increase data reliability when digital photographs are submitted as evidence. The RSA encryption method is used to make it possible to detect editing with respect to the entire image. By loading the image onto a PC using the EC1 software provided, it is possible to make highly accurate judgments on image edition
