Contrary to Ricoh GR II, the third version of the compact Ricoh includes many novelties. The camera will have the 24MP APS sensor equipped with phase-detection pixels, thanks to which we will be able to adjust sharpness faster and more effectively than in the case of the previous models. The sensor is equipped with the 3-axis stabilization system and the whole construction is led by the latest-generation image processor. Sharp photographs can be taken already from 6cm and the camera enables the simulation of the low-pass filter.
The lens of GR III is the equivalent of 28mm with the light of f/2.8 and it consists of six elements placed in four groups, including two aspherical elements. The lens has the in-built ND filter, which reduces exposition by 2EV.
1). Ricoh GR III
We don't know the full specification of Ricoh GR III yet but the information that we've received can be supplemented with the following properties of the new camera: a touch LCD screen with the resolution of 1.03MP, recording videos in Full HD with the speed of 60f/s., USB-C, Wi-Fi and 2Gb of in-built memory. What's interesting, we don't see a flash in the photographs.
The camera's price is not known yet but the producer has announced the market premiere for "the beginning of 2019".
