Ricoh has announced the development of the highly-anticipated GR III high-end digital compact camera. It’s designed to be “the ultimate street photography camera.”
A small and light camera that’s heavy in image quality and features, the Ricoh GR III weighs just 0.57lb (257g) with a battery and memory card and measures 4.3×2.4×2.8in (109.4×61.9×33.2mm). Inside is a new 24.24-megapixel APS-C sensor. While the minimum ISO is 100, the maximum has yet to be set in stone by Ricoh.
In addition to capturing 14-bit RAW (DNG) and JPEG still photos, the GR III will also shoot 1080p FullHD video (up to 25 minutes or 4GB) with a built-in stereo microphone.
Photos and videos can be saved on both the 2GB of internal storage and the SD card slot.
On the front of the camera is a newly designed 18.3mm f/2.8 (28mm in 35mm terms) lens with 6 elements arranged in 4 groups.
