Ricoh GR III Digital Camera
Ricoh GR III A new dimension in descriptive performance
1/125 sec., F2.8, ISO2000, EV -0.7, WB: Multi Auto White Balance
High resolution and high contrast.
Introducing the sharp imaging of the newly developed GR lens
Ricoh GR III lens with a new lens construction was developed for even better image quality. This lens uses a slim optical system with six elements in four groups while maintaining the 18.3 mm (35 mm format equivalent: 28 mm) focal length and brightness of F2.8. High-refractive index, low dispersion glass and aspherical high-precision molded glass lenses are optimally placed in the lens construction to suppress distortion and chromatic aberration to the absolute limit, delivering a high level of sharpness. This results in images that are sharp and clear across the entire frame even from the widest aperture setting.
The detailed descriptive power of the 24.2 M large APS-C size image sensor
Ricoh GR III This model is equipped with a high-resolution, wide dynamic range APS-C size CMOS image sensor (approx. 24.24 effective megapixels). It has approximately 1.5 times the pixels of the GR II and an anti-aliasing filterless construction that utilizes the characteristics of the high-resolution lens for high-definition detail reproduction. Both the image sensor and lens are also optimized for the best possible image quality.
Advanced image processing and responsiveness.
Meet the new GR ENGINE 6
The imaging processor on this model is the new GR ENGINE 6. It elevates the essential high image quality performance of the GR for an even greater level of detail. Faster processing makes a high pixel count image sensor and multi-level gradation in 14-bit RAW possible. This also contributes to improved responsiveness and functionality for autofocus and movie.
Ricoh GR III Shooting at ISO 102400 is possible with our original signal processing technology
A high-performance processor “Accelerator Unit” has been adopted on this model as a powerful way to support high image quality. The signal output by the image sensor is sent to the image processor after being optimally handled.
This reduces noise, delivering superb resolution and color reproduction across the entire sensitivity range. It also makes it possible to shoot at ISO 102400.

Ricoh GR III 3-axis, 4-step Shake Reduction for high image quality across a wide shooting range
Camera shake is reduced for crisp images even when taking split-second snapshots. Shake Reduction is installed while making the body size of the GR III more compact than its predecessor model. It minimizes the shake on three axes, including yaw, pitch and raw. Compensation effects deliver as many as 4 steps of shutter speed*.
AA filter simulator for reducing false colors and moiré thanks to Shake Reduction mechanism
The effects of the optical anti-aliasing (AA) filter are obtained with Shake Reduction. Moving the image sensor slightly during the exposure suppresses false colors and moiré. You can choose whether to prioritize resolution or reducing false colors and moiré depending on your subject. Choose [High] or [Low] for effect settings.
● Sufficient functionality may be achieved when the shutter speed is slower than 1/1000 second.
