Ricoh GR II Silver Edition Camera Commemorates Milestone

Ricoh announced the limited edition 16-megapixel GR II Silver Edition digital camera to commemorate the 80th anniversary of the founding of Ricoh Company, Ltd. Only 3,200 units will be made available worldwide. Other than a few cosmetic differences, the compact camera maintains the same photographic quality as the standard GR II model launched in July 2015.

Distinct features of the GR II Silver Edition include:

  • Stylish silver camera body: The camera body has a high-grade, silver-color leather-tone finish, featuring an elegant, grained texture.
  • Distinctive features compared to the standard GR II: The Silver Edition’s shutter release button and the ring cap have been finished in silver identical to that of the camera body. Additionally, the lens descriptions are engraved on the front ring using a diamond-cutting process and the GR logo’s color on the camera’s front panel has been changed to white. Even the product box has been specially designed for this package.
  • Termination screen: When the camera’s power is turned off, the camera displays an original termination screen, which has a solid, high-grade design expressing the GR II’s product concept.
  • Genuine leather camera case: The package includes a black, genuine-leather camera case exclusively designed for the GR II camera body. It provides features useful for quick-action snapshot photography, including a belt loop on the back, and a top cover that opens fully for easy removal of the camera body.
