Ricoh Imaging is celebrating its 80th anniversary by announcing the release of their GRII Silver Edition camera. This offer will only be available for a limited time, as they are only releasing 3,200 of these worldwide. The exclusive package includes a silver-color edition of the GR II and a genuine leather case specifically designed for this camera.
The camera itself is the smallest premium digital compact camera, offering DSLR image quality as well as wifi compatibility. Additionally, the GR 18.3mm F2.8 lens has a focal length of 28mm (in the 35 mm format), as well as an APS-C-size CMOS image sensor with about 16.2 effective megapixels.
Here are some things to note for all of you sentimental Pentaxians out there:
- In case you were afraid that the camera wasn’t going to match, the shutter release button AND the ring cap have been colored in the same way to match this majestic, silver finish. On top of everything, if you weren’t feeling the peach color of that tiny GR logo on the original lens design, the GR logo’s color is now white, for that elegant white-on-black design instead.
- The camera incorporates an original termination screen, for when you want to look at something unique while you’re turning your camera off.
- It comes complete with a genuine leather camera case, made specifically for the camera body of the GR II. As if you couldn’t ask for anything better, this camera case not only fits exactly to this camera, but has a belt loop and an easily removed top cover, of which allows you to—you guessed it—easily remove your camera. If you want to feel like a cowboy in the wild west, this camera holster will allow you to whip out your camera in a moments notice, just in case you have to catch that in-the-moment shot (or engage in an epic wild west gunfight).
