PRESS SUMMARY

Ricoh today announced that the company is to release updated firmware for G700 and G700SE digital cameras on June 17, 2011.

Based on the many comments and suggestion received from end users, the firmware for existing G700 and G700SE cameras has been updated to add new functions and menus that increase ease-of-use and productivity not only in construction and engineering but also in a wide range of other business applications.

The G700's water and dust-proof design ensures reliable performance in harsh environments in a variety of applications, from disaster relief through medical or production environments that require cleaning and sterilization, to engineering and construction. The G700SE shares its little sister's water- and dust-proof design but offers as standard wireless LAN and Bluetooth® for wireless data transfer and supports optional GPS units and bar-code readers.

Manuals for updated firmware and functions can be downloaded free of charge from the Ricoh website.
