The water, dust, and shock resistant digital camera
The G700 was created for the demanding professional. To the water, dust, and shock resistance necessary for hard work-site use, chemical resistance has now been added. The wide range of functions includes a CALS mode useful for electronic data submission and a password camera lock capability. Attaining new levels of reliability, this true tool represents the crystallization of Ricoh technology.


  • Enhanced shock resistance tough enough to pass a 2.0 m drop test: Despite its small size and light weight, the G700 has strengthened glass at the lens front surface and body protectors added at strategic points. This toughness enabled it to withstand 2.0 m drops in 26 positions (6 surfaces, 8 corners, and 12 edges) in testing conforming to US Department of Defense “MIL Standard 810F.” Furthermore, it also passes this test with the power on.
  • IPX8 equivalent water resistance enables two hours of use at 5 m depth: Water resistance is rated at JIS/IEC waterproof protection grade 8 so the G700 can handle two hours of underwater photography at a depth of 5 m. In addition to use at wet sites, the G700 can also be used for shooting in the rain, and it can be washed in water if it gets dirty.
  • Toughness for the most demanding sites: Dust resistance, at JIS/IEC dustproof protection grade 6, guards against infiltration by dust and sand. The G700 can also shoot in cold environments, with cold resistance able to handle temperatures down to -10°C.
  • Chemical resistance: Sodium hypochlorite, ethanol or liquid chlorine dioxide can be used in addition to water wash to keep the camera cleaned and ready for use.
  • Extended operation time for up to about 360 pictures: Approximately 360 pictures* can be taken with the rechargeable battery provided. The dissipation of battery power can be reduced by specifying synchro monitor mode, which turns the picture display off when the camera is not being operated.
  • AAA Alkaline batteries can also be used: In addition to the high-capacity rechargeable battery included, the G700 can also be powered with readily available AAA-size alkaline batteries. With these batteries, approximately 40 shots* can be taken. So you can quickly recover from the battery depletion that can occur in periods of long use.
  • Filter use possible: You can also attach commercially available 37 mm diameter filters, which are effective for preventing lens scratching and condensation.
  • Operation controls easy to use even wearing gloves: Featuring relatively large buttons, the operation controls are arranged in a simple design that enables easy operation even with gloves on
  • NOTE:

    This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class A digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference when the equipment is operated in a commercial environment. This equipment generates, uses, and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instruction manual, may cause harmful interference to radio communications. Operation of this equipment in a residential area is likely to cause harmful interference in which case the user will be required to correct the interference at his own expense.

  • Caution:

    Changes or modifications not expressly approved by the party responsible for compliance could void the user’s authority to operate the equipment.
