Ricoh G700 overview

  • 1Description

The G700 Waterproof Digital Camera from Ricoh has a 1/2.3" CCD sensor, used to capture 12.1MP resolution images and 1280 x 720 HD videos. The 5.0-25mm zoom lens provides the 35mm equivalent of a 28-140mm focal length and 5x optical zoom, while it also accepts 37mm filters for added protection and creative opportunities. It is capable of ISO sensitivities of 64 to 3200, and additionally, a built-in flash ensures that even shots in the dark or low light will come out well.

For composition, review, and menu navigation, the G700 has a 3.0" LCD on the rear of the camera body - giving you a generous amount of space. The camera features an SD/SDHC and SD WORM card memory slot, providing the option of using SD WORM's "write once, read many" capabilities that make it great for locking information onto a card and unable to be edited or rewritten afterward. There is a nominal 103MB internal memory which can be used for a few shots, giving you a small margin of wiggle-room without a card or when yours is full.

This camera was designed with harsh environments in mind, from work sites to hospitals. Having gone through numerous tests, the G700 is guaranteed waterproof to a depth of 16' (5.0 m) for a duration of 2 hours, shockproof up to a drop of 6.0' (1.8 m) and coldproof down to 14°F (-10°C), among other extremes. It can even be operated with gloves on thanks to the simple and well-designed layout of buttons. Additional tough-minded features include the use of industrial strength disinfectants on the device, such as sodium hypochlorite and ethanol, or the option of washing it in water whenever it gets dirty.

Additional features of the camera include bar code reading for saving product information or other codes for future reference. The camera also comes equipped with Bluetooth Ver. 2.1 +EDR and wireless LAN (802.11b/g) compatibilities, allowing you to send your images to a smartphone or other digital device, such as a computer, wirelessly.

12.1MP 1/2.3" CCD Image Sensor
Capture sharp, detailed images with a 12.1MP resolution 1/2.3" CCD sensor and even after cropping your images will remain crisp and vivid.
28-140mm (35mm Equivalent) 5x Zoom Lens
The G700 is built with a 5x Optical Zoom Lens, and a 4x digital zoom. The optical zoom starts as a 28mm wide-angle and can extend to its maximum 140mm telephoto zoom, when converted to their respective 35mm equivalents. This covers a wide, and highly useful, range of focal lengths.
Additional Zoom Capability
Having a digital zoom at 4x, means it can go up to a maximum 20x (560mm equivalent) in combination with the optical zoom. In addition, Auto resize zoom provides 6.3x (VGA) and up to 31.5x (882mm equivalent) zoom in combination with the optical zoom.
IPX8 Water Resistance to 16' for 2 hr
Water resistance is rated at IPX8, JIS/IEC waterproof protection grade 8 so the G700 can handle two hours of underwater photography at a depth of 16'. In addition to use at wet sites, the G700 can also be used for shooting in the rain, and it can be washed in water if it gets dirty.
Shock Resistance
Despite its small design, the G700 has strengthened glass at the lens front surface and body protectors added at strategic points. This toughness enabled it to withstand 6.0' drops in 26 positions (6 surfaces, 8 corners, and 12 edges) in testing conforming to US Department of Defense "MIL Standard 810F" - it also passes this test with the power on.
Dust and Cold Resistance
Dust resistance, at JIS/IEC dustproof protection grade 6, guards against infiltration by dust and sand. The G700 can also shoot in cold environments, able to handle temperatures down to 14°F.
Chemical Resistance
The G700 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 without a problem.
3.0" Rear LCD Display
The 3.0" screen has enough room to provide a wealth of important information about your shots as you capture them, via the crisp 920,000 dot color display. A clearer screen means you can see more detail whether you're shooting underwater, or high visibility when outdoors in direct sunlight.
1280 x 720 HD Video Recording
Shoot 1280 x 720 HD video anytime, anywhere right from the G700 digital camera.
Electronic Vibration Reduction
The G700 utilizes an 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.
Built-In Flash, Bluetooth & Wireless LAN
The camera unit comes equipped with a flash usable up to 10m, Bluetooth Ver. 2.1 +EDR function and wireless LAN (802.11b/g) compatibility. 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.
SD/SDHC/SD WORM (Write Once Read Many) Memory Cards Supported
The G700 supports the SanDisk Corporation SD, SDHC, and SD WORM (write once read many) cards. 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.
Filter Use Possible
You can attach commercially available 37mm diameter filters, which are effective for preventing lens scratching and condensation.
Operation Controls Easy to Use Even Wearing Gloves
Featuring relatively large buttons, the operation controls are arranged in a simple design that enables easy operation even with gloves on.
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 4.0' fall.
Bar Codes Supported When Read with Camera Itself
Linear: EAN-13/8 (JAN-13/8), UPC-A/E, UPC/EAN (with add-ons), Interleaved 2 of 5, CODEBAR (NW-7), CODE 39, CODE 93, CODE 128 TYPE C, GS1-128 (EAN-128), and RSS (GS1 DataBar)
Matrix: QR Code, Micro QR Code, DataMatrix(ECC200), PDF417, Micro PDF417, MaxiCode, EAN·UCC Composite(GS1 DataBar Composite).
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".
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.
Firefighting Mode
Focus is fixed at 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.
Skew Correction Function
Rectangular objects photographed at an angle are corrected so they appear to have been shot squarely, while also retaining the original, un-edited image.
Even Surface Texture is Visible: 1.0 cm 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".
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.
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.
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 G700 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.
Form Print Function For Easy Printing in Easy-To-Use Layouts
If you connect the G700 to a Ricoh-compatible printer, it is possible to print out images in easy-to-use form layouts. For details, please see the Ricoh website.
