Ricoh Updates Its Popular Street Camera with the GR III, Featuring A New 24.24MP APS-C Sensor, An 18.3mm F2.8 Lens, Hybrid AF and Shake Reduction

The Ricoh GR cameras were always a popular choice for street photography. It was compact, no nonsense straight forward and unobtrusive. The GR III (announced back in September during Photokina 2019) comes with a brand new 18.3mm F2.8 lens, a new 24.24MP APS-C CMOS sensor with on-sensor phase detection, a 3-inch 1.04M-dot touchscreen LCD and 3-axis image shift image stabilization (which Ricoh calls “Shake Reduction”) rated at up to 4 stops. The Ricoh GR III is still very much marketed as a still camera, with only Full HD 1080/60p video. Gone is the small pop-up flash.

WEST CALDWELL, N.J., Feb. 21, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Ricoh Imaging Americas Corporation today announced the launch of the highly anticipated RICOH GR III camera. The new camera is the latest model in the RICOH GR series, a lineup of high-end digital cameras providing exceptional image quality in a compact, lightweight body ideal for street photography, travel and capturing candid images.

The RICOH GR III features a newly designed lens, image sensor and imaging engine that further upgrade image quality, enhance functionality and improve usability. The 18.3mm F2.8 lens delivers exceptional imaging performance with a slim design, consisting of six optical elements in four groups, while retaining the 28mm angle of view. It produces the clearest, sharpest images in GR-series history while reducing distortion and chromatic aberration. It also comes equipped with a macro shooting capability with a minimum focusing distance of six centimeters.

In keeping with the GR-series concept of packaging high image quality in a compact design, the RICOH GR III camera body is smaller than its predecessor, and is equipped with a large APS-C-size CMOS image sensor with approximately 24.24 effective megapixels to produce high-resolution images. Its short start-up time of approximately 0.8 seconds allows for quick, responsive shooting. The camera’s high-definition LCD monitor features touchscreen operation, offering intuitive control of camera functions right on the screen.
