Ricoh has updated its GR line of digital cameras with the GR II. The new revision brings Wi-Fi and Near-Field Communications (NFC) to the line. Also updated is a new 16-megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor, with no optical low-pass filter and an advanced auto-focus system, with lock times as quick as 0.2 seconds.
Ricoh has announced a collection of new projectors aimed at business and education markets, with some upgrading a number of existing project models.

Ricoh has launched an updated version of its Pentax K-3 digital SLR from late 2013, improving a few elements while keeping the rest the same. Just like the original, the Pentax K-3 II has a 24-megapixel APS-C sensor, but this time Ricoh has introduced a Pixel Shift Resolution system, which uses the camera's shake reduction mechanism to move the sensor in single-pixel increments and capturing four images, combinable into one higher resolution photograph.
Ricoh has launched a set of three monochrome laser printers in the United States. The SP 213SNw and SP 213SFNw multifunction printers and the SP 213Nw printer all offer print speeds of up to 23 pages per minute, a low 10-second wait for the first print, minimal warm-up times, and a number of different connectivity and networking options.
Ricoh has added another pair of cameras to its ruggedized outdoor snapper range. The WG-30 and WG-30W are compact 16-megapixel cameras designed for use outdoors in extreme activities, with the pair able to survive submergence to a depth of 12 meters (39.3 feet), environments as cold as -10C (14F), withstand drops from a height of 1.5 meters (4.9 feet), and being crushed by up to 220 pounds in weight.
Ricoh's Pentax K-camera collection has been joined by a new mid-class camera. The Pentax K-S1 is a DSLR with a 20-megapixel CMOS sensor combined with the Prime MII imaging engine, giving it a maximum sensitivity of ISO 51,200, a top shutter speed of 1/6000 of a second, and a continuous shooting rate of up to 5.4 frames per second.
Ricoh has launched another camera in its Q-range of Pentax compact snappers, which it claims is one of the world's smallest and lightest with interchangeable lenses. The Q-S1 has a 12.4-megapixel BSI CMOS image sensor, housed inside a retro-styled body which customers are able to heavily personalize, thanks to its wide selection of color combinations.
Ricoh has launched a new bridge camera with a long optical zoom and similar physical styling to DSLR cameras. The Pentax XG-1 houses a 16-megapixel back-illuminated 1/2.3-inch CMOS sensor with a maximum sensitivity of ISO 3200, behind a 52-times optical zoom lens giving 35mm-equivalent focal lengths from a 24mm ultra-wide-angle to a 1,248mm super telephoto lens.
Today, Ricoh Imaging Americas Corporation has revealed the new Pentax 645Z magnesium alloy-bodied, medium-format DSLR.
