Undervannskamera basert på Ricoh GR-1

Spesialfirmaet Sea & Sea lanserer et kamera som bør interessere de som er aktive undervannsfotografer. Firmaet leverer en rekke hus tilpasset vanlige kamera, men Sea & Sea DX1G er et dedikert undervannskamera bygd rundt Ricoh GR-1 Digital (Det riktige er GX100, se kommentar nedenfor). Dette er et kamera som har fått mye skryt for bildekvaliteten, robust konstruksjon, og ikke minst mange manuelle instillingsmuligheter.

Å jobbe med et kamera der man ikke er avhengig av å se gjennom en speilrefleksssøker gjør mange ting enklere under vann. Dessuten tilsier en mindre bildebrikke større dybdeskarphet ved store blenderåpninger, noe undervannsfotografer trolig vil vite å verdsette. Kombindert med gode manuelle instillings-muligheter synes DX1G å være et interessant alternativ.

Pressemeldingen finnes dessverre bare på engelsk:

    Dette er sikert en gammel artikkel, men jeg tillater meg å kommentere den alikevell:
    Undervannskameraet er basert på et Ricoh GX kamera, sansynlighvis GX100.

    Ricoh GR1 derimot, er et gammelt analogkamera fra 1996.....

  2. Henvisningen til GR-1 er helt klart tull fra min side. Må kalle det en arbeidsulykke. GR-1 var kameraet som på mange måter tjente som inspirasjon til GR Digital.

    Ved nærmere ettersyn ser jeg imidlertid at det heller ikke er GR Digital som danner basis for dette kameraet, men som du ganske riktig påpeker GX100
