Ricoh GXR – Interchangeable Unit Camera System


Ricoh finally unveiled its first digital system camera, the GRX. It?s an interchangeable unit camera system in which lenses are changed by using a slide-in mount system to attach camera units to the body. The lens, image sensor, and image processing engine are integrated into the camera units so the body itself does not contain an image sensor.

There are two units available: GR Lens A12 50 mm f/2,5 Macro with 23.6 mm×15.7 mm (APS-C size) CMOS, 12 MP sensor and RICOH LENS S10 24-72 mm F2.5-4.4 VC with 10 MP 1/1.7-inch CCD sensor. The body comes with HD 3.0-inch 920,000-dot VGA LCD display, built-in flash and accessory shoe, HDMI connector and optional electronic viewfinder. Prices: $549 for the body, $830 for A12 50 mm unit and $440 for S10 24-72 mm unit. Electronic viewfinder will cost you $257.
