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 fi eld. 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) eff ect, 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 lownoise performance allow regular shooting at ISO3200 (which can be boosted to a maximum of ISO25600). By eliminating the antialiasing 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 finetuning 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 artifi cial lighting such as fl uorescent 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.









































So responsive, it feels like it’s part of you

The speed to react to every chance moment

Decisive autofocus for swift, precise shooting

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 [MultiAF], [Spot AF] or [Pinpoint AF].

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.

   







































Wide array of effects for richer creative expression

 

Wireless flash provides sophisticated lighting solutions

The GR II’s built-in fl ash can wirelessly trigger an external fl ash 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 fl ash can be explored at will.


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

 

High-quality full-HD video, ideal for discerning fi lmmakers

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.

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 wideangle conversion lens.
