About Ricoh GR

The Ricoh GR Pocket-Size Compact Digital Camera features 16 megapixel APS-C CMOS image sensor that offers low-noise characteristics, super-high resolution with no compromise in image quality or color accuracy. The advanced GR ENGINE V imaging engine offers high-sensitivity shooting with minimal noise and the GR's anti-aliasing filter less design produces supremely high resolution, color-rich images.

The GR digital camera's fixed wide angle 18.3mm F2.8 GR lens, equivalent to 28mm in the 35mm format, provides high resolution images with edge-to-edge sharpness. With its nine blade diaphragm, the GR lens produces a natural Bokeh effect at larger apertures. The high speed autofocus system captures crisp subjects in a mere 0.2 seconds and start-up time is only one second.

The GR's AF Continuous Shooting function captures a series of photos at a maximum speed of four images per second, allowing capture of fast-moving subjects, such as athletes and wildlife, all in incredibly sharp focus.

Enjoy DSLR-like handling and functionality with an AF button, accessible with the thumb on the back panel. When the AF lever is set to the Continuous AF (C-AF) mode, capture a series of images of a moving subject - all in sharp focus - by pushing the shutter release button while depressing the AF button. An aperture preview button has also been added to the camera's side panel for quick confirmation of the depth of field before shooting.

Despite its large image sensor, the GR has a compact and portable design. Its casing is made of a lightweight magnesium alloy, while its exterior design retains the style typical of the GR. Designed for maximum holding comfort and operational ease, all control buttons are laid out for easy access with the right hand. Capture both JPG and open-standard DNG RAW images. The GR offers a variety of computer-free image processing functions, including in-body RAW-data development to output JPEG format files.

Capture full HD video in widescreen 1080p resolution (1920x1080) with efficient, high quality h.264 compression at 30 frames per second. The AutoFocus system remains active with movement as the camera continuously focuses subjects in the center of its angle of view. Supported by its large sensor and the advanced imaging engine, the GR offers high sensitivity shooting from ISO100 all the way to ISO 25600 with minimal noise.

I have been through several small point and shoots and, up to now, have loved the small size but always felt disappointed with the image quality. No more. This camera rivals my Canons for IQ and has more settings than i really need for picture taking. Love the 28mm lens view and the ability to crop to 35mm. Focus is very good and the images have to be seen to be believed for their sharpness. I shoot in RAW and do next to zero sharpening in post processing. When selecting this camera, IQ was first and foremost on my list, and to get this quality and be able to carry it in my pocket just blows me away. I also love the feel of the camera in the hand. It goes everywhere with me.

Color not great

I really wanted to love this camera, I've had several Ricoh cameras in the past and they were great. Unfortunately, this one has severe color desaturation problems, even when in "Vivid" mode, even using raw. Faces in dim indoor lighting were grey and desaturated. Editing the photo in raw did no good, as there was desaturation, and you cannot bring up the color where none exists. The curtains got redder, the walls got browner, but the face remained grey. The only solution, really, would be to ...

Editing the photo in raw did no good, as there was desaturation, and you cannot bring up the color where none exists. The curtains got redder, the walls got browner, but the face remained grey. The only solution, really, would be to paint a flesh tone over the greyed out face. This, of course, I was unwilling to do, so I returned the camera with disappointment. Loved the blackout look of the camera, and the size, but it would probably ONLY work for black and white shooters.

Little winner

By

from Pacific NW  -  Semi-Pro Photographer

Good: Small, customizable, one handed-shooting, amazing IQ, DNG files, strap lug at all four corners, bright screen, comfortable to hold. Bad: No external charger included, could use some more customization options (can never have enough), menus/customization options can be difficult to decipher at times as manual isn't totally comprehensive, moving lens mechanism can lead to dust on sensor, wish it had a built-in optical finder. Overall: I'm pleased and glad to see many firmware updates...hope they keep coming. I'm concerned about dust on the sensor as this seems to be a problem that previous GR series cameras didn't exhibit...costly repair.

What?!?!

By

from New York  -  Semi-Pro Photographer

The image quality out of this little camera is simply stupefying. I gave it a "test drive" in the store, but only when you bring this out in the world and start silently snapping away does it show its strengths! I am still astounded on a regular basis with the images that this thing cranks out. The resolution of the screen is a little misleading (you literally cannot check for critical focus because the pixelation obscures any fine detail…) but worry not! Drag your extremely compatible .dng files into Lightroom and prepare for the best. My other cameras are collecting dust as we speak, while I hit the streets and don't think twice with the GR in my jacket pocket. My only regret is that I didn't buy this right when it came out so I could have phased all of my other gear out sooner.

Great pictures/Flaky firmware

By

from W, DE  -  Photo Enthusiast

This camera is really entirely customizable as you'd read in every reviews. It takes great RAWs with a rather neutral color rendering for plenty of room in editing. It goes into a pocket, is fast and all, but there is probably a B I G firmware problem, at least with my copy, as the camera freezes all the time. Take a few pictures, and it locks up with the lens extended. Only removing the battery and putting it back after too many minutes will solve the problem… until the next time. I need to return it. Too bad…!

So far, takes great photos

By

from San Francisco, CA  -  Photo Enthusiast

I had the GRD II, before spending a few years with the Pentax K-7, and now I'm glad to be back. So nice to be able to throw this camera in my bag and not even realize it's there. And it takes great pictures, in most cases sharper than the DSLR.

GReat Camera for for everyday use

By

from Kosice, Slovakia  -  Photo Enthusiast

Since I have the GR, I have it all the time with me - this is impossible with DSLR. IQ is really great (I find it usable up to ISO 1600, but I would use ISO 6400 if I had to) and what I especially love about this camera is customization. I don't like only two things - no viewfinder (but that's no such big problem, as one can buy an external one, and viewfinder only makes the camera bigger) and battery life.

I was looking for a pocketable camera with dslr features and a decent sensor. The GR is it!

Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Does the language setting include Chinese?
PETER B  I just checked the language setting and Chinese is not one of the 16 languages listed in the Setup menu.
Shopper  How does Ricoh GR compare with Sigma DP1 Merrill in image quality, autofocus, lowlight performance and ease of use?
GLENN M  Sorry, can't help you. Returned the GR and have never had any experience with the DP1.
Shopper  How do you focus the lens manually without the external viewfinder?
SAMEER S  I find the manual focus quite useful while stationary. When I shoot landscapes I simply set the focus to infinity and I am good to go for every photo. No waiting for focus. When I am on the go and want to take advantage of a quick focus I use the snap focus feature.
