Digital Camera Description

The Pentax Ricoh GR II is a Compact Digital Camera with an APS-C sensor. Its 16 Megapixels CMOS sensor offers an ISO 100-25600 sensitivity range which is expandable to ISO 100-25600. This makes it possible to shoot hand-held in very low-light. With 16 MP of resolution, sharp prints are possible up to at 240 DPI.

This camera features a mechanic shutter that can expose for 1/30 to 1h 6m 40s. Bulb exposures of an unspecified duration are possible with this camera. With a fastest shutter-speed of 1/30, fast action cannot be frozen. Night photography is possible using this digital camera due to its long exposure capability. This camera model offers Full Manual Controls.

Pentax Ricoh GR II

The Pentax Ricoh GR II features a Contrast-Detect AF system. Autofocus can continuously adjust according to subject distance. A Real-Time Autofocus Tracking System allows focus to follow a moving subject within the frame. Manual Focus is also available.

Dual controls-dials offer direct access to most exposure parameters which makes this digital camera suitable for advanced photographers. This camera does not feature any seals to protect it against adverse weather, dust and moisture. Care must be taken, just like with most electronics. There is no viewfinder on the Pentax Ricoh GR II and no provision to add one.
