Electornic leveler ensures level shots while viewing thorugh the LCD monitor

One of the key fundamentals of using a wide-angle lens is maintaining a horizontal image, and this is particularly relevant from the standpoint of the low-distortion GR Lens. That’s why GR DIGITAL II incorporates an electronic leveler, which lets you view the horizontal indicator in the LCD monitor to ensure that shots are aligned horizontally. This also functions for vertical shots. When looking through the external viewfinder or in situations when the LCD monitor cannot be seen well,the camera emits an audible signal to indicate horizontal alignment.
  • * The horizontal indicator can be displayed as a mark shown on the LCD monitor, or with a histogram.

Depth of field indicator function


Simulated images

In the Manual exposure and Aperture priority modes, when the Focus mode is set to Snap, Manual or Infinity, a display at the side of the monitor indicates the depth of field. This is especially convenient to match the aperture and focal length, as it helps to keep the subject in sharp focus when timing is important and you are shooting without AF.
 

Metering mode and Exposure control mode

The GR features three metering modes: multi-light metering, in 256 increments; center-weighted metering; and spot metering. Exposure can be controlled by Programmed AE, Aperture-priority AE or Manual exposure. This unmatched flexibility to respond to lighting conditions lets you give full expression based on your experience and instincts. Exposure range can be set from +2.0 to -2.0 (in 1/3 EV steps), or auto bracketing ±0.5EV/0.3EV.

 

Five focus modes

The AF is provided with two modes. The 9-point multiple AF, automatically detects subjects so that shots remain focused even if the subject is off center. This makes it especially effective for unanticipated, spontaneous photo opportunities. The Spot AF focuses on a single object in the center of the LCD monitor. In addition, Manual, Snap (fixed at 2.5meters) and Infinity settings are provided.

 

AE lock

You've just spotted a great scene. After determining the correct exposure for the subject, you want to shoot a scene using a different approach. At times like this, the AE Lock on the GR DIGITAL II Fn (Function) button can be preset. When used in conjunction with the focus lock of the Shutter button, you can easily operate AF and AE independently.

Square mode

GR DIGITAL II not only frames images in 4:3 and 3:2 aspect ratios, but also features a square setting that emulates 6 X 6 medium format cameras — giving you the means of creating distinctive square shots. And these square images can also be captured in RAW mode.
  • * Aspect ratio selectable between 4:3 and 3:2
 

Monochrome(TE*)setting

In addition to the regular monochrome setting, a monochrome (TE*) setting provides distinctive shots in a choice of sepia, red, green, blue and purple. Tone, contrast and sharpness are also adjustable, for additional creative control over each shot.
The camera also has an Auto Bracket function for taking three consecutive shots centered on a preset exposure. Exposure difference can be selected from -0.3EV/ ±0/ +0.3EV or -0.5EV/±0/+0.5EV. The White Balance Bracket function, too, takes three consecutive shots: one with a red tone, one with a blue tone, and one at standard white balance value.
