Mississauga, ON – April 17, 2013
PENTAX RICOH IMAGING CANADA INC. is pleased to announce the introduction of the GR compact digital camera. This new RICOH-brand model offers the top image quality of the renowned GR series in a pocket-sized body that enhances the camera’s operability and portability
in everyday snapshot use.
Developed as a successor to the GR DIGITAL IV (released in October 2011), the new GR inherits the product concept of the GR DIGITAL series while incorporating upgrades in the basic specifications and functions of its predecessor. It features a newly designed lens to assure sharp, clear image descriptions, even at image edges. Thanks to the combination of a newly developed 16.2 megapixel APS-C-size CMOS image sensor, the high-performance GR ENGINE V imaging engine and an Anti-aliasing filter-less design, the GR assures high image resolution, gradationrich colour reproduction and improved image quality, especially at high-sensitivity shooting. In addition to improvements in quick shooting capability, an AF button and an aperture preview button have been added to enhance the operability during everyday on-the-street shooting. It also offers a range of user-assisting features, including in-body RAW-data development and focus assist to facilitate manual focusing.
The GR will be available in Canada May 2013 at an anticipated retail price of $799.99.
