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 designed to be approximately 26% more compact than its predecessor, despite an enhanced shock-resistant performance to withstand a fall from 2.1 meters.* 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 to enhance the ease of carrying and handling at worksites.
In addition to outdoor applications at civil engineering, construction and disaster relief sites, the RICOH G900 can also be used in a wide range of indoor industries, at locations such as high-security workplaces thanks to the password-protected Camera Lock function inherited from its predecessor, and medical and manufacturing facilities requiring thorough cleansing and sterilization of equipment.
