Operability

What to say, and how to say it? This system understands the photographer's intentions.

Flexible accommodation of subject and shooting style.
Settings read when camera unit attached

The GXR remembers shooting settings in both the body and the camera unit. It is possible to select in advance which settings are to be used when the camera unit is changed. Select the body settings if you want to shoot and process images in the same way regardless of the camera unit. Select the camera unit settings if you want to change settings for image creation in a style specific to the camera unit. For example, for the camera unit with a zoom lens, settings for sharp black and white street scenes could be specified, while settings for natural color portraits are specified for the camera unit with a fixed-focal-length lens. In this way, camera units can be used for different purposes without making detailed setting changes.

  • * Some of the body settings cannot be carried over.

Speedy function settings via DIRECT screen

The DIRECT button is located on the back of the GXR. When in shooting mode, pressing the DIRECT button displays the current shooting settings. Since the settings are transparently displayed over the image, the DIRECT screen is convenient for simultaneously checking both the image and the settings. In addition, you can smoothly prepare to shoot by selecting settings with the directional pad and then making changes. Background image density (three levels) can be changed by pressing the DISP. button while the DIRECT screen is displayed.

Speedy function settings via DIRECT screen

  • * Shooting mode, macro, self-timer, and flash settings cannot be changed on the DIRECT screen. The mode dial or the individual buttons should be used for changes.

High-definition 920,000-dot picture display enables precise focus checks

A 3.0-inch, 920,000-dot high-definition LCD panel is used for the picture display. A wide color reproduction range with 100% sRGB coverage gives a high-reality image for both shooting and playback. The large screen size and high resolution enable careful checking of focus when images are magnified and reviewed in playback. Superior visibility and durability are achieved with a fluorine coat to prevent soiling, a hard coat to prevent scratches, and an anti-reflection coat.
