The Ricoh GXR is a unique camera system that consists of a body and separate camera units. Each camera unit contains a lens, an image sensor of optimum type and size for the unit, and an image processing engine. In eliminating the traditional lens mount and SLR-style mirror, the GXR achieves a very compact design that combines perfectly-matched system components ensuring high-quality images. One of the advantages of this system is that it eliminates the problems associated with dust on the camera’s sensor as the interchangeable lens and sensor are integrated into a single sealed unit.
The light and strong magnesium-alloy camera body also sports a high-resolution 3.0” 920K LCD screen that is ideal for framing and reviewing your photos. Or utilise the optional VF-2 detachable LCD viewfinder (sold separately) that has 100% field of view, 920,000-dot resolution, and tilts up for low-angle shooting.
Movie Feature – captures HD video with audio at up to 1280x720 resolution at 24 frames/sec. The maximum length for one instance of movie recording is 90 minutes or a file size upper limit of 4GB.
* We recommend using class 6 or higher memory cards for recording high definition video with this camera.
