Ricoh announced the release of the fourth function-enhancing firmware update for the GXR, a high-image-quality compact digital camera launched in December 2009. Updates include greater focusing precision, flash firing and detailed ISO sensitivity settings.The GXR is a revolutionary interchangeable unit camera system in which lenses are changed by using a slide-in mount system to attach camera units to the body. The lens, image sensor, and image-processing engine are integrated into the camera units so the body itself does not contain an image sensor.
Function-enhancing firmware updates are developed in response to opinions and requests received from a large number of customers via surveys submitted at customer registration time and other channels. These updates enable customers who already own a GXR to update it to include the latest functions. This fourth firmware release expands photo-expression possibilities and enhances usability by adding new functions.
