Breathe originality into your photographs

Wide array of effects for richer creative expression

New effect modes expand creative options: HDR Tone, Clarity, Brilliance, Vibrant, Bright and Portrait. The Effect button on the side of the camera body allows you to turn the function on/off or select one to apply during shooting. These effects can also be applied in-camera during RAW development.

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.

Macro conversion lens, four centimeters of minimum focusing distance

Available as an optional accessory, its use is limited to macro photography for a subject positioned at a distance of approximately four to 8.5 centimeters. It can focus much closer than most other APS-C-size models which minimum focusing distance is approximately 10 centimeters away. Moreover, all optical surfaces are treated with a multi-coating process to deliver brilliant, high-resolution images.

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.

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.

Full-featured Auto Bracketing.

Not only does this feature take care of exposure bracketing, but it brackets for various functions such as two types of white balance, effects, dynamic range correction, and contrast.
