Default RR30 FAQs

FAQ updated at: 08-Mar-2003

I will be updating the FAQs as more info comes about on the RR30 and any info can be read in here.


Is the any other Lithium Battery other than the DB-43 that the RR30 can take?

Well I have searched the net high and low for this information. The Fuji M603 takes a NP-120 Battery which has the same Voltages and mAh and terminal layout as the DB-43.

3.7v and 1800mAh check the images:



The Fuji BC-65 is the charger for the NP-120...I have yet to get anyone to confirm this will work but on looks this battery is the same just different labelling. Pricing of the DB-43 is approx 55 Euros or 36 UKP. so far NP120's in the UK are more expensive.

Note: Hähnel industries ltd say they will have a NP-120/DB-43 clone of this battery in April 2003, but no pricing of this battery as yet, word is also the Contax TVS digital will be using the same type of battery.

What is the latest firmware for the RR30?

v1.11 is the latest firmware at present. (04/Mar/2003)

get it here: RR30-1.11


What is fixed in the Firmware upgrade?
  • Rev 1.11 Amount of light from flash increased slightly. Exposure compensation for the flash improved.

    Rev 1.06b Same details as below, but now firmware can be updated by USB—no card reader required.

    Rev 1.06 Improved image quality (in telephoto shots, the image quality and balance have improved)

    Rev 1.04 Improved stability at start up Camera now compatible with 512MB SD memory cards (previous limit: 256MB)


How do I know what firmware I have in my RR30?

With the Power turned off put dial onto SETUP first of all. Then Press the Down button, ZOOM In and Power on at same time. It will show the firmware version in the LCD Display like so:
  • CPU1: 1.00
    CPU2: 1.11
    MON: 1.00
    ADJ: 1.11
    SH: 000267
    ST: 000115
CPU2 is the Cameras Firmware revision number,
SH is the amount of shots taken,
ST is the amount of shots taken with the flash.

Note: This firmware revision screen will be displayed for about 20 seconds. You will not be able to turn the power off or use any of the other functions during this time. Please wait until this display finishes, at which point the SETUP screen will be displayed.


How do I upgrade the firmware in the RR30?

At present the latest firmware 1.11 uses this method: HERE


What is the largest size of Memory can the RR30 take?

At present 512Mb with the firmware upgrade 1.04 or above


Can I make the RR30 waterproof like the 300G?

Yes, There is availble a cover that makes your RR30 waterproof. for more information goto: DX3000


The flash seems very weak when used in dark areas, can I do anyting about this?

You can use the DB-40 that is used in the Caplio RR-10. Its slightly thiner and wont last as long, but it works.

I think RR-30 users should use NiMH AA batteries. They dont put as much pressure on the battery cover. I've seem quite a few broken battery covers on RR-30s due to the doors being "Forced" when trying to shoehorn the DB-43 in.

Just as a head's up, if you're wanting to purchase the Sea & Sea underwater housing, you'd better hurry. Sea & Sea has announced that it is now discontinued. They are releasing a new housing, the DX3000G which will fit the Ricoh G3.

Dunno if it will be replaced or repaired, I guess its up to Ricoh. The warranty says they could do either. I dont know how it happens. I just know that error codes with 00 00 00 are bad and we have to send the cameras back to them.
