Tough enough for the roughest worksite
Although light and compact, the RICOH G800 features a tempered front lens element and protection at key points, tough enough to withstand the Pentagon MIL Standard 810F 2.0 meter drop test on all 26 surfaces (6 sides, 8 corners,and 12 edges) even when on.
With Class 8 JIS/IEC water resistance, the RICOH G800 can take photographs for 2 hours at depths of 5 meters. Use it on wet worksites or in the rain—just rinse the dirt off afterwards.
Class 6 JIS/IEC dust resistance keeps out the dust and sand. Able to withstand temperatures as low as −10 °C, the RICOH G800 can be used in cold environments.
Sodium hypochlorite, ethanol or liquid chlorine dioxide can be used in Addition to water wash to keep the camera cleaned and ready for use under any conditions.
The supplied rechargeable battery can be used for about 400 shots＊ without recharging. A sync mode that turns the monitor off when it is not in use further reduces the drain on the battery.
In place of the supplied high-capacity rechargeable battery, the RICOH G800 can also be used with widely-available AAA alkaline batteries, which have enough power for about 40 shots.＊ Use AAA batteries as backups for long photo sessions or in case the main battery runs out.
Third-party filters 37 mm in diameter can be used to protect the lens from scratches and condensation.Use polarizing filters to reduce reflections.
Long enough to be worn across the chest, the strap is broad and rugged. It can also be worn around the neck so that the camera can easily be placed in a breast pocket.
