Ricoh has announced the development and release of the new GXR camera unit RICOH LENS P10 28-300 mm F3.5-5.6 VC*1. Featuring a high-magnification 10.7x (28-300 mm) optical wide-angle zoom (As featured in the Ricoh CX3 – read our review) and high-speed continuous shooting of RAW still images at about 5 frames/second*2, this camera unit has a back-illuminated CMOS sensor and an advanced noise reduction function.

“The Image processing engine Smooth Imaging Engine IV and the high-speed image processing capabilities of the CMOS sensor combine to enhance image quality and expand dynamic range. The 10.7x optical zoom expands image-creation possibilities from wide-angle through telephoto. The RAW mode high-speed continuous shooting at about 5 frames/second enables the photographer to catch the desired scene. And the noise reduction function and back-illuminated CMOS sensor together give high imaging performance in low-light shooting.

Also included are a 1280 × 720 pixel HD movie function, the dynamic range double shot mode function, a macro function capable of close-up shooting at 1 cm, and many other enhanced functions for diverse and effortless enjoyment of shooting from 28 mm wide-angle to 300 mm telephoto.

For this model, there are two package types available. The product name “RICOH LENS P10 28-300 mm F3.5-5.6 VC” refers to just the camera unit by itself. Product name “GXR+P10 KIT” refers to the GXR body and the RICOH LENS P10 28-300 mm F3.5-5.6 VC camera unit packaged together. The Ricoh Lens P10 will be available at SRP £249.99 inc”

Photography BLOG has reviewed the new Ricoh GXR interchangeable unit camera system – the body accepts lens/sensor units with a 12.3mp CMOS sensor, 50mm f2.5 macro lens unit available as one option, and another 10mp CCD sensor, 24-72mm zoom lens unit also available. Future units are planned, and can be changed with the metal body staying the same – the body features a 3″ 920k pixel screen, SDHC card support, DNG support, manual mode, function buttons, ISO3200, full press snap, digital level meter, and dynamic range expansion. The body will be available for £419, 12.3mp 50mm Macro lens unit £600, 10mp 24-72mm zoom lens unit £330 and will be available in December.

“The Ricoh GXR is a remarkably mature first-generation product in an intriguing new photographic system, with excellent handling and image quality that will instantly appeal to all photographers who want to take pictures first and talk about gear second. The initial offering of interchangeable camera units is a little puzzling, though, and certainly won’t suit everyone – achieving the “right” combination of sensor and lens is crucial to the GXR’s future success.”

“Capture the true face of your everyday world. It is the unaffected expression that is the sweetest. For this kind of candid photo, the most suitable camera must be small enough to be always with you and always ready for a casual shot. On top of that, the ability to change lenses (and therefore perspective on sensibility) to match each change in scene and mood will spur you to new levels of shooting motivation and creativity. The ideal tool for this purpose is an unprecedented new camera system. GXR. The compact and versatile interchangeable unit camera system.”
