Ricoh GR III Compact Camera

Feb 26, 2019

Street photography is a visceral medium, capturing the raw personality of a city or space without the need for script or structure. Instead, the photographer focuses on the present — a candid look into the bloodstream of the surrounding world, pumping and coalescing in an attempt to march onward. Isolating these moments requires an eye for detail and a machine capable of sleek, stealth operation — that’s where Ricoh’s new GR III compact camera comes in.

The GR III is an update to the cult classic street camera that was the GR II, combining compact design with a stealthy black colorway and APS-C sensor to capture moments as they happen, without external interference. An upgraded touch-screen display, 3-axis image stabilization, high-speed hybrid autofocus, and an improved button layout resolve some of the most disparaging aspects of the original camera, while a new 24-megapixel sensor provides exceptional freeze-frame quality. The camera is available now via Ricoh’s site for $900 — $250 more than the preceding GR II.

Purchase: $900
