RICOH COMPANY, LTD. and RICOH IMAGING EUROPE, S.A.S. are pleased to announce the launch of the RICOH G900. This heavy-duty digital camera design is highly resistant to water, dust, shock and chemicals. It is ideal for use in challenging worksite situation in industries such as construction, disaster relief and healthcare, which can be subject to water, rain, dust and dirt.
The successor to the RICOH G800 (launched in September 2014), the RICOH G900 features a back-illuminated CMOS image sensor with approximately 20.0 effective megapixels, which captures bright, high-resolution images, even in low-light conditions. It is approximately 26% more compact than its predecessor, yet delivering an enhanced shock-resistant performance to withstand a fall from 2.1 metres.* Its downsized body improves portability, its accessible button positioning enhances operability, and its flawlessly contoured grip ensures a firm hold on the camera. It also inherits the wide neck strap of its predecessor, which enables two-point, cross-shoulder suspension for easy carrying and handling at worksites.
In addition to outdoor applications such as civil engineering, construction and disaster relief sites, the RICOH G900 can also be used in a wide range of indoor industries, including high-security workplaces thanks to the password-protected Camera Lock function inherited from its predecessor, as well medical and manufacturing facilities requiring thorough cleansing and sterilization of equipment.
* Measured using RICOH-original testing standards — from a height of 2.1 metres, onto a surface of 5cm-thick plywood, and with the camera’s power on — conforming to Method 516-5-Shock of the MIL-Standard 810F.
The Rich G900 will be available at retail and B2B. Full product details here.
