A Waterproof, Dustproof, Heavy-Duty Digital Camera

In addition to approximately 20 effective megapixels, 5× optical zoom, and the water-, dust-, and shock-resistance demanded of equipment used on construction worksites, the RICOH G900 offers an electronic survey slate and security features to meet the varied needs of the hard-working professional. With features for taking pictures securely and reliably and managing them efficiently, this work-site camera is sure to increase productivity. *All focal lengths in this RICOH G900 product page are 35 mm format equivalents.

Linking Camera Memos for Improved Efficiency in the Construction and Infrastructure Maintenance Industries

The G900’s camera memo feature can be used to add pre-prepared information to images, such as text identifying work tasks. Explanatory text, voice memos, reference drawings, and other data can be linked to photographs to streamline sort and search operations.

Security Features for Reducing Risk in Facilities Inspection, Government, and Banking

Password protection can be applied to the entire camera or only to one or more selected features, including the menus, internal memory, or USB connections. SDHC and SDXC memory cards can also be password protected, reducing the risk of data leaks.

IPX 8 water resistance, good to depths of 20m for up to 2 hours

With Class 8 JIS/IEC water resistance, the RICOH G900 can take photographs for 2 hours at depths of 20m (66ft). Use it on wet worksites or in the rain or the dirt can be rinsed off.

Tough body with heightened impact resistance passes the 2.1m drop test

Although it is light and compact, the RICOH G900 features a tempered front lens element and protection at key points, tough enough to withstand the Pentagon MIL-Standard 810F 2.1m (6.9ft) drop test on all 26 sides (6 faces, 8 corners, and 12edges) even when the power is on.

Worry-free usage with sodium hypochlorite, ethanol, or liquid chlorine dioxide disinfectants

The RICOH G900 can be used with ethanol, sodium hypochlorite, and liquid chlorine dioxide disinfectants, allowing it to be used worry-free in medical facilities or on production lines.

Toughness that shines on harsh jobs

Class 6 JIS/IEC dust resistance keeps out dust and sand. Able to withstand temperatures as cold as -10°C (14°F), the RICOH G900 can be used in cold environments.

Wide, long neck strap

Long enough to be worn across the chest, the strap is broad and rugged. Camera can also be hanged vertically as it can also be worn around the neck so that the camera can easily be placed in a breast pocket.

Support for filters

Third-party 37mm filters can be attached to the lens to protect it from condensation and scratches.

Easy to hold, easy to use

The large grip guides your fingers into a position where you can support the camera naturally. Ad ditionally the mode dial and other controls are designed for ease of use with gloves.
