The G800 and G800SE cameras are powerful image- and video-capturing devices. They have an IP68 rating, making them dust and water-resistant; they're able to take photographs for 2 hours at depths of 5 meters. The G800/G800SE are chemical resistant, withstanding disinfection with ethanol, food-grade sodium hypochlorite, or liquid chlorine dioxide- a feature unique to these two models.

G800SE back

Ricoh has also improved the display, adding a back-illuminated CMOS sensor that takes bright photos in dim light. The wide-angle, 3-inch, 920k-dot picture display is easy to read, and full HD recording ensures high-quality videos.

New security features have been added to the G800/G800SE models. In addition to being able to restrict access to the camera by password protection, the user may now create separate user and administrator passwords. SDHC and SDXC memory cards can also be password-protected, preventing images from falling into the wrong hands if the card is lost or stolen.
