Sharply reproduce worksite conditions and even words written on a blackboard. Even after cropping, images remain crisp and vivid.
For reliable photography even in dark sites such as tunnel interiors, the G700 has a built-in flash with a range of 10 m for wide-angle and 6.2 m for telephoto. With high-sensitivity ISO 3200, the G700 can also shoot in situations where flash cannot be used.

The accessory shoe (conforms to JIS B7101) makes it possible to shoot with commercially available flash units*. This further expands the scenes which can be photographed.
*A flash with both a slave flash function and a pre-flash support function should be used. It is not possible to use units without a spring or lock mechanism or units on which synchronization with the pre-flash cannot be cancelled. Furthermore, the accessory shoe does not support a synchronizer contact.
With the mode dial you can easily switch between CALS mode, auto shooting mode, My Settings mode (for registration of frequently used shooting settings), and scene mode (firefighting, skew correction, etc.). In CALS mode, you can select from six picture size and quality settings ranging from “5M 4:3 F” to “VGA 4:3 F”.
The focal length is fixed to 2.5 m and ISO sensitivity is raised to enable shooting of clear photographs in the difficult conditions for autofocus at the scene of a fire. Sharpness processing is also done to give the still images a sharper feel.
By just pressing the ADJ. (adjust) button, you can easily specify exposure compensation, ISO sensitivity, and other settings.
The G700 utilizes the new electronic vibration correction function that takes two exposures at high speed with the differences being calculated. It is a powerful tool when shooting in low light and when shooting telephoto.
Rectangular objects photographed at an angle are corrected so they appear to have been shot squarely. The before-correction image is also recorded.
