Designed and touted as the ultimate street photography camera, Ricoh GR III is a high-end compact digital camera. It's a 24.24-megapixel primary colour filter APS-C sensor with a 100 ISO minimum. It also comes with a newly-designed f/2.8 lens with a fixed focal length equivalent to 28mm. The f/2.8 lens has six elements in four groups, including two aspherical. Its minimum focus distance has improved from its predecessor, the 2015-released GR II, to 6cm (2.4") from 10cm (3.9").
Along with the new GR III's sensor, it can now shift in three axes to compensate for camera shake as part of an updated 24-megapixel sensor, the camera is designed with sensor-shift image stabilisation and on-sensor phase detection. The GR III can record Full HD 1080/60p video which is an upgrade from 1080/30p on its predecessors. Photos and videos can be saved on both the 2GB of internal storage and the SD card slot.
The other features and specs include: a self-timer, 35mm/50mm crop, highlight/shadow correction, slow shutter speed and high ISO noise reduction, in-camera RAW development features, a 3-inch 1.037-million-dot LCD touchscreen, Wi-Fi, a hotshoe, and a rechargeable battery.
Product Features in Detail
The newly developed GR lens & Shake Reduction
A six-element, four-group optical system is used to achieve images that are sharp from the center to the edge with clear depiction. The optical system is slim and compact so the body can accommodate an in-camera Shake Reduction mechanism. The effects of camera shake on image quality are minimized and the full capabilities of the newly designed GR lens optical performance are maximized for a variety of scenes.
24.2 M APS-C size image sensor
Approximately 24.24 effective megapixels deliver high image quality, and an anti-aliasing filterless construction delivers high-definition rendering even in the finest details.
Low noise, maximum ISO 102400
Original noise reduction processing results in high image quality even at high ISO sensitivity. 14-bit RAW recording is also supported for rich tonal reproduction.
The newly developed GR ENGINE 6
A newly developed imaging processor delivers further improvements in high image quality performance, elaborately detailed imaging across the entire sensitivity range, and superb color reproduction.
High-speed hybrid AF
Image plane phase-matching AF delivers high-speed AF and contrast-detection AF offers superb focusing precision. The best of these two types are combined to make a hybrid AF. The common issue of searching for focus peaks in contrast-detection AF has been significantly reduced on this model. The hybrid system delivers faster autofocus and greater precision.
Shake Reduction mechanism for 4 steps* of compensation
This model uses the sensor-shift type, Shake Reduction mechanism. It delivers compensation on three axes.
*Shutter speed conversion. CIPA standard.
The camera is equipped with an LCD monitor that supports touch operations and a convenient control dial. These features provide quick control over AF frame movement and menu access.
Made more compact to achieve the ultimate in snapshot cameras
The body size of this model is about the same as the GR DIGITAL IV (model with a 1/1.7 type image sensor) while delivering a completely new dimension of performance for the GR series. Controls are improved while maintaining the pursuit of portability, bringing us one step closer to the ultimate snapshooter.
Expanded functionality firmware for an ever-evolving GR III
The GR III keeps evolving with the latest firmware updates. The expanded functionality firmware is provided to add new features and setting operations.
Frequently used functions can be assigned to the ADJ lever and Fn button. Other controls can also be customized for fine tuning camera operation, making the camera easier to use and to match your shooting style.
Image Control & JPEG image adjustment
The GR III features many selections of advanced image creation functions. Image adjustment parameters have been redesigned to 10 Image Control options for shooting. During playback, image tones of JPEG can be adjusted and saved as a new file.
