Optimized for use on worksites, the Ricoh G900 pairs a truly rugged physical design with versatile imaging capabilities and an immense feature set to complement its use at civil engineering, construction, disaster relief, manufacturing, and indoor industrial sites. Featuring a 20MP BSI CMOS sensor, high-resolution stills shooting and UHD 4K30 video recording are possible, and an ISO 125-25600 sensitivity range benefits working in various lighting conditions. A 5x optical zoom lens also contributes to the camera's flexibility, and covers a wide-angle to telephoto 28-140mm equivalent focal length range, which is benefitted by a series of digital Shake Reduction modes to produce sharper handheld images.
The G900's distinguishing features, though, lie in its tough physical design, which renders it waterproof to depths of 65.6', shockproof from heights of 6.6' as well as freezeproof, crushproof, dustproof, and resistant to chemical disinfection. Also complementing its use on worksites is the incorporation of an enhanced Camera Memo function, for attaching text or audio messages to files, and an advanced password protection Camera Lock function to restrict use of the camera. Surrounding the camera's lens is an LED ring light that, besides illuminating close-up subjects, works in conjunction with a Barcode Scanning mode. A high-accuracy GPS module is also incorporated into the camera's design, and permits embedding location information within your image files.
