The Digital Imaging Websites Association has announced a DIWA Gold Award to the Ricoh GR Digital semi-pro compact camera, the digital version of the classic GR1 camera for 35mm film.
The award recognizes Ricoh GR Digitalâ€™s many high-tech innovations to the film cameraâ€™s classic design philosophy. The award was granted after a thorough testing by a panel of judges composed of DIWA members.
The GR Digital body is housed in magnesium alloy to withstand harsh environments. With its 8 Megapixel image resolution, ISO 64-1600 sensitivities, RAW and JPEG formats, sRGB and Adobe RGB, dual command dials, automatic or manual exposure and white balance, 15 AF points, individual parameter settings for image quality, as well as a wide range of shutter speeds, aperture settings and metering modes, the GR Digital is an ideal compact to supplement bulky camera equipment, DIWA said.
