 GR II



GR lens for high-quality image reproduction

Developed in pursuit of pure image quality, the GR 18.3mm F2.8 lens (equivalent to 28mm in the 35mm format) 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. By mutually optimizing this large image sensor and the GR lens, the camera achieves a slim and compact body that stands true to the GR heritage.

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 (Color Temperature Enhancement) mode for white-balance control makes it possible to emphasize the predominant color 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.

* [ON], [OFF] can be selected. Only available when [Focus] is set to [Multi AF], [Spot AF] or [Pinpoint AF].

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.

Detailed 3.0″, 1.23m dot LCD monitor

The GR II’s high-definition LCD monitor with brightness adjustment, scalable font characters, and detailed, full-color graphics supports your shooting with superb visibility. The protective LCD screen cover provides assurance in even harsh environments.

The aperture preview button lets you check the photo before you actually shoot it.

The aperture preview button (also used as Wi-Fi button) is located on the side of the camera body. With this button, you can check the depth of field before shooting. Not only can this be used from image setting effects, but it is also available from the third function button, continuing on from the conventional second function button.

Focus Assist and Move Target assist in more accurate focusing.

With these functions you can specify any portion of a subject to meter, and then lock the focus. You can also magnify a portion of the screen, emphasize outlines or contrast, and focus more accurately.

Equipped with an Electronic Level

The camera is equipped with a built-in Electronic Level. With this feature, you can check the inclination of the camera in the horizontal, forward and backward (tilt) directions while shooting. The level is displayed at the bottom of the screen, making composing a shoot and shooting easy.

 

Wireless flash provides sophisticated lighting solutions

The GR II’s built-in flash can wirelessly trigger an external flash to discharge based on a TTL-metered exposure value. Bounce the light to soften portrait shadow, or control the subject’s volume with highlights –– advanced lighting with an external flash can be explored at will.

* Compatible accessory flash units are AF540FGZ II, AF360FGZ II, AF540FGZ and AF360FGZ. The GR II does not support shooting with these compatible flash units mounted on the hot shoe.

High-quality full-HD video, ideal for discerning filmmakers

The GR II records high-quality, Full-HD movie clips with a beautiful bokeh (defocusing) effect, captured by the GR lens and large image sensor, in the H-264 recording format. In addition to faster AF operation, you can now adjust exposure compensation during movie recording, widening the range of cinematic expression available to you.

ND filter with ON/OFF/AUTO settings

The GR II features a built-in ND (Neutral Density) filter that can be activated from the maximum aperture at F2.8. Because it allows you to control the amount of incoming light, it enables you to deliberately use a slow shutter in a bright scene, for example.

 

Interval Composite shooting captures star and moon trails within landscapes

The popular Interval Composite function is updated to allow finer control over interval-time, such as with the new minimum settings, allowing you to easily create impressive star-field photography with smoother light trails. Saving the image as a RAW-format file is now supported.

 

35mm/47mm Crop modes expand your options

Crop mode* allows you to capture an image at an angle of view equivalent to 35mm or 47mm (in the 35mm format). This ability to choose from three angles of view according to your creative intentions opens up a broader range of expression.

* The image size is limited to M when using 35mm Crop mode, or S when using 47mm Crop mode.

 

21mm Wide Conversion Lens offers a broader field of view

High-performance wide conversion lens developed exclusively for the GR II is available as an optional lens to take advantage of the GR II’s high mobility in shooting at ultra-wide angle positions.

* Optional Ricoh GH-3 Lens Hood & Adapter is required to attach the wide-angle conversion lens.

Macro mode enables close-ups 10cm from the lens

In macro shooting, the GR II delivers crisp image rendition as well as a beautiful bokeh (defocusing) effect, even at the maximum aperture. The Auto Macro function, with its minimum close-distance of 10 cm, detects the subject’s distance and automatically switches to Macro shooting mode.

 

In-camera RAW-data development allows finishing images without any need for a PC

After shooting RAW-format images, you can apply a variety of adjustments including white-balance control, Chromatic Moiré Correction, and effect modes, all within the camera, and output the finely finished images in JPEG format.

Multi-Exposure for enjoyable creative photography.

Multi-Exposure can merge up to five images. Detailed settings are possible such as the automatic adjustment of exposure amount for the number of shots, saving each image before merging, saving images each time they are merged, etc. Because images can be retaken right after they are shot, it is easy to create exactly the image you have in mind.
