A supremely user-friendly,
elegant design that makes owners proud
Sturdy yet elegant magnesium body
GR Digital is designed to accompany photographers wherever they go, reliably capturing any scene at a moment's notice. Durable, lightweight and easy to hold, its die-cast magnesium body protects high-precision inner circuitry from electromagnetic interference while exuding a highly satisfying look of genuine, luxurious quality.
Simple, one-action-operation menu system
Functional advances are no excuse for complex operation. With the goal of an ultimate one-action, one-button user-interface, Ricoh developed an elegant menu system that lets users instantly call up often-used functions in response to shutter opportunities.
Clear 2.5-type, 210,000-pixel LCD
The large 2.5-type color TFT LCD monitor on the back of GR Digital provides 100% coverage
*1 of the field of view. At roughly 210,000 pixels, the screen's high resolution makes it easy to check the focus by zooming in on pictures after shooting. The screen also assists users by displaying various information, including histograms for adjusting exposure and grids for achieving precise vertical/horizontal alignment or tripartite-division framing.
with 100% coverage

LCDs on digital cameras are not always ideal for monitoring dark environments and fast-moving subjects. But the optional GV-1 optical viewfinder solves this problem. It mounts on the hot shoe almost directly above the lens and offers a framing guide for capturing a 21mm-equivalent field of view when using the optional GW1 21mm wide conversion lens.

Built-in automatic pop-up flash
with brightness sensor
The built-in flash unit pops up automatically when needed and is far enough from the lens to illuminate all corners of the wide 28mm-equivalent field of view without lens barrel vignetting. This sufficient distance between flash and lens also reduces the occurrence of red eye. The flash has a guide number of 12.
Two-dial system enhances operability
and user concentration
The GR Digital comes with two dials - a front dial for selecting the aperture and a rear dial for changing the shutter speed. Together, they offer superb operability and allow smooth setting of desired exposure in the manual exposure mode. The front dial can also be used to scroll menus for speedier operation.
A host of great features
