RICOH G700 Rugged Work-Site Compact

Availability: Out of stock

Retail S$948.00

The G700 was created for the demanding professional. To the water, dust, and shock resistance necessary for hard work-site use, chemical resistance has now been added. The wide range of functions includes a CALS mode useful for electronic data submission and a password camera lock capability. Attaining new levels of reliability, this true tool represents the crystallization of Ricoh technology.



The toughness critical for difficult work sites


Shock resistance NEW

Enhanced shock resistance tough 
enough to pass a 2.0 m drop test

Despite its small size and light weight, the G700 has strengthened glass at the lens front surface and body protectors added at strategic points. This toughness enabled it to withstand 2.0 m 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 resistanceNEW

IPX8 equivalent water resistance 
enables two hours of use at 5 m depth

Water resistance is rated at JIS/IEC waterproof protection grade 8 so the G700 can handle two hours of underwater photography at a depth of 5 m. 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.


Dust and cold resistance

Toughness for the most demanding sites

Dust resistance, at JIS/IEC dustproof protection grade 6, guards against infiltration by dust and sand. The G700 can also shoot in cold environments, with cold resistance able to handle temperatures down to -10°C.




Chemical resistance NEW

Sodium hypochlorite and ethanol disinfection OK

The G700 can be disinfected with ethanol or sodium hypochlorite, which has been approved as a food additive disinfectant. So it can be safely used in medical facilities and production facilities.


Extended operation time for up to about 360 pictures NEW

rechargeable battery

Approximately 360 pictures* can be taken with the rechargeable battery provided. The dissipation of battery power can be reduced by specifying synchro monitor mode, which turns the picture display off when the camera is not being operated.

  • *Shooting capacity was measured using CIPA-standard parameters. This is only an estimate and performance may vary depending on usage conditions.




AAA Alkaline batteries can also be used

AAA Alkaline batteries can also be used

In addition to the high-capacity rechargeable battery included, the G700 can also be powered with readily available AAA-size alkaline batteries. With these batteries, approximately 40 shots* can be taken. So you can quickly recover from the battery depletion that can occur in periods of long use.

  • *Shooting capacity was measured using CIPA-standard parameters. This is only an estimate and performance may vary depending on usage conditions.




Filter use possible

You can also attach commercially available 37 mm diameter filters, which are effective for preventing lens scratching and condensation.


Wide and long neck strap NEW

Wide and long neck strap

With the wide, durable neck strap, you can suspend the camera diagonally, and it can also be suspended vertically from the neck to allow for easy storage in a breast pocket.


Operation controls easy to use even wearing gloves

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.

  • *Simulated image.



Smart functions support shooting and post-shooting operations

12.1 million effective pixels for more precise photo reproduction NEW

Sharply reproduce worksite conditions and even words written on a blackboard. Even after cropping, images remain crisp and vivid.


Built-in flash reaches up to 10 m

For reliable photography even in dark sites such as tunnel interiors, the G700 has a built-in flash with a range of 10 m for wide-angle and 6.2 m for telephoto. With high-sensitivity ISO 3200, the G700 can also shoot in situations where flash cannot be used.



Accessory shoe

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.

  • *A flash with both a slave flash function and a pre-flash support function should be used. It is not possible to use units without a spring or lock mechanism or units on which synchronization with the pre-flash cannot be cancelled. Furthermore, the accessory shoe does not support a synchronizer contact.


Mode dial for quick mode changes

Mode dial for quick mode changes

With the mode dial you can easily switch between CALS mode, auto shooting mode, My Settings mode (for registration of frequently used shooting settings), and scene mode (firefighting, skew correction, etc.). In CALS mode, you can select from six picture size and quality settings ranging from “5M 4:3 F” to “VGA 4:3 F”.

Firefighting mode

The focal length is fixed to 2.5 m 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 give the still images a sharper feel.


Adjust button

Adjust button

By just pressing the ADJ. (adjust) button, you can easily specify exposure compensation, ISO sensitivity, and other settings.

Electronic vibration correction function NEW

The G700 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.



Wide & Macro

High-performance lens handles various situation


28-140 mm non-extending optical 5x zoom captures each subject as intended

The G700 uses a 28-140 mm 5x optical zoom lens. With the ability to take photographs across a wide range impossible for a standard 35 mm lens, the G700 is convenient for shooting indoors and at other sites where it is not practical to back up. It also easily handles telephoto shooting.


Wide conversion lens (DW-5) <Option>

Wide conversion lens (DW-5)

Now it is possible to shoot at an even wider 22 mm 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: 1 cm macro shooting


With 1 cm 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 20 cm.

  • *The macro shooting wide-angle setting is f=5.9mm at a 33 mm focal length (35 mm equivalent). At maximum telephoto you can shoot as close as 15 cm.



Operation controls offer outstanding ease of use


Boasting a wide viewing angle, the 3.0-inch 920,000-dot picture display is easy-to-see and easy-to-use even outdoors NEW

The G700 has a large 3.0-inch 920,000-dot high-definition picture display. The wide angle and high contrast give high visibility even outdoors.

Electronic level enables level photography NEW

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.

  • *Simulated image.




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.
