An innovative camera system expanding your range of expression with interchangeable units
GXR is a new camera system that consists of a body and camera units. Each camera unit contains a lens (focal lengths differ between units), an image sensor of optimum type and size for the unit, and an image processing engine. By changing units, the photographer can handle a diverse range of scenes in a way that satisfies sophisticated requirements for photo expression. The slide mechanism adopted for attaching and removing camera units enables changes to be made quickly and securely.
No worrying about dust when changing lenses. Highly airtight system for superior dust proofing
The ease with which dust can adhere to image sensors has been a system problem for interchangeable lens digital cameras up to now. In the case of GXR camera units, however, the lens and the image sensor are integrated into a single unit. This structure makes it difficult for dust to get in since it is not necessary to expose the inside of the camera when changing lenses. In addition, the inside of the units are highly airtight with light-shielded walls. Even in highly dusty shooting environments, camera units can be changed without hesitation.

RICOH Lens P10 28-300mm f3.5-5.6 VC
Great versatility in a 10.7x optical zoom with wide-angle to telephoto coverage
From expansive landscape shots to concerts and sports where you are far from the action, this 28-300 mm 10.7x optical zoom handles not only everyday subjects but special events as well. The high zoom ratio means you will have diverse options for creative expression.
In people photography, you could emphasize perspective by using a wide-angle setting to get up close to your subject while also having an expansive background. Or you could do the opposite by standing back from your subject and using a telephoto setting to weaken the sense of perspective, thereby heightening tension by making it feel like the background is looming up on the subject. With this camera unit, you enjoy abundant power of expression and profound imaging possibilities.
The difficult aspect of designing a high-magnification zoom lens is correcting the color and spherical aberrations of axial magnification.
The RICOH LENS P10 28-300 mm has a lens configuration of 7 groups and 10 elements.
The utilization of 4 aspherical lenses (5 surfaces) made it possible to use a design that is relatively simple for a 10.7x zoom while at the same time correcting for various types of aberrations.
You can beautifully reproduce every scene with vivid images that are clear and sharp from wide-angle through telephoto.
Ultra-high-speed continuous shooting at 4.3 frames/second in RAW mode and up to 120 frames/second maximum
This camera unit shoots continuously at about 4.3 frames/second* in RAW mode (10M), which captures a large volume of image data thereby giving you a high degree of freedom in subsequent image creation processes. You can also shoot at up to 120 frames/second (640×480) using the ultra-high-speed Hi setting. In addition, there is M-continuous plus, which at the Low (10M) setting shoots 15 images in as little as 3 seconds and at the Hi (2M) setting shoots 26 images in about 0.9 seconds.
Holding the shutter-release button down, you follow the movement of the subject, and when you take your finger from the button, the images shot continuously up to that point are saved.
This function is very powerful for scenes in which continuous-shooting timing is a problem, such as where an animal could bolt or a soccer player shoot at any second.
