The Ricoh GR II inherits the brilliant concept of the GR series: a perfect balance between exceptional image quality and outstanding portability. It is also the first GR-series model to feature Wi-Fi and NFC functions for easy pairing with smartphones and other mobile devices. It boasts outstanding basic specifications, including: a high-performance lens, acclaimed as the best in GR history; a large, APS-C-size CMOS image sensor; and the high-performance GR ENGINE V imaging engine. Its imaging power has been further upgraded by reprogramming the white-balance algorithm to improve the precision of AWB (Auto White Balance) control and fine-tuning of the compensation programme to prevent high-sensitivity noise. It has also been designed to accommodate a wider variety of scenes and subjects by adding new creative tools, including six effect modes and a wireless flash discharge function in combination with an external flash unit.

Ricoh GR features:

  • 16.2 MP APS-C CMOS sensor.
  • High-performance GR ENGINE V.
  • High-performing GR Lens eq. to 28mm F2.8 (2 aspherical elements).
  • Built in Wi-FI and NFC Module for Image transferring and sharing.
  • GR Remote for remote controlling with Smart Phone.
  • High speed of Start-up time, AF, Shutter release.
  • Low noise on high ISO. High dynamic range.
  • Compact and Light, magnesium alloy body.
  • TAv and PASM modes.
  • Full HD video.

GR lens for high-quality image reproduction

Developed in pursuit of pure image quality, the GR 18.3mm F2.8 lens (equivalent to 28mm) delivers simply the best performance in GR’s history. This acclaimed lens design incorporates two high-precision glass mold aspherical optical elements and a high-refraction, lower-dispersion glass element, positioned optimally to reduce distortions and chromatic aberration to near absolute minimum, while reproducing high-resolution images from the center to the edges of the image field. Thanks to its crisp image rendition even at the maximum aperture of F2.8, and its faithful image reproduction against backlight, the user can truly enjoy the charm of a unifocal lens. Its nine-blade iris diaphragm helps create a truthful sense of depth and a natural bokeh (defocusing) effect, while allowing the user to capture beautiful light beams at closed-down apertures.

Large CMOS image sensor captures the finest details

The GR II features a large-imaging area, wide dynamic range APS-C size CMOS image sensor with approx. 16.2 effective megapixels. The superior high-sensitivity characteristics and low-noise performance allow regular shooting at ISO3200 (which can be boosted to a maximum of ISO25600). By eliminating the anti-aliasing filter to enhance resolution, it maximizes the resolving potential of the lens to deliver sharp, high-quality images right to the edges.

GR ENGINE V provides superior image processing power

The high-performance GR ENGINE V imaging engine draws the most out of the GR lens and the CMOS image sensor. By fine-tuning the compensation program against high-sensitivity noise, it improves image quality and enhances resolution and contrast, while minimizing annoying noise. By reprogramming the AWB algorithm, it assures more precise white-balance control under artificial lighting such as fluorescent lights, while delivering more stable results in outdoor shooting. The new CTE (Colour Temperature Enhancement) mode for white-balance control makes it possible to emphasize the predominant colour within the image, to create a stronger impression.

The speed to react to every chance moment

The GR II is fully tuned up to give you the quickest response: from its very short start-up time, through its high-speed AF system thanks to the optimization of its lens drive mechanism and AF algorithm, to its minimal shutter release lag. It also features the Full Press Snap* option that allows you to shoot at a preset focus distance with a full-press shutter release. Thanks to its increased buffer memory capacity, smooth continuous shooting is possible even in RAW format.

Decisive autofocus for swift, precise shooting

During shooting, the AF function switching lever (for Continuous AF and AE/AF Lock) lets you switch between autofocus modes with a single action: either use the AF button for continuous autofocusing in Continuous AF mode; or switch the lever to AE/AF lock, lock the focus with the AF button, then set the exposure by half-pressing the shutter-release button. The GR II’s exposure swiftly responds to quick changes of composition.
