The Ricoh GR IIIx is designed to further enhance the essential values of the GR-series: optimizing image quality, snapshot capabilities and portability.
The 26.1mm GR lens provides a 40mm standard angle of view in the 35mm format, close to the photographer’s own effective field of view, and delivering images with a more truthful sense of depth for a completely different type of street photography.
It also provides a range of new and upgraded post-shooting functions to edit captured images to the photographer’s preference.
Newly designed, high-resolution GR lens
The newly designed 26.1mm GR lens provides a 40mm angle of view in the 35mm format, close to the photographer’s own effective field of view. Depending on the way the lens is used, this versatile angle of view can create different image renditions: users can capture an image similar to those taken at a 30mm semi-wide angle or create a completely different visual expression as if taken at a 50mm standard angle. High-refractive index low-dispersion glass lenses and aspherical high-precision molded glass lenses are optimally placed in the lens construction to suppress optical distortion and chromatic aberration to the absolute limit, delivering a high level of sharpness.
It also comes equipped with an ND (Neutral Density) filter, which closes the aperture down by two stops to capture high contrast high-resolution images with a variety of scenes and subjects and under varying shooting conditions. Its nine-blade diaphragm mechanism creates a natural bokeh (defocus) effect and a truthful sense of depth at open and larger apertures, while capturing beautiful light beams at closed-down apertures.
High-quality, high-resolution images
The approximately 24.24 effective megapixel APS-C size image sensor delivers high image quality, and an anti-aliasing filterless construction delivers high-definition rendering even in the finest details. The latest GR ENGINE 6 elevates the essential high image quality performance of the GR IIIx for a greater level of detail. Faster processing makes the combination of high-resolution sensor and multi-tone 14-bit RAW possible. It contributes to improved responsiveness and functionality.
3-Axis, 4-Stop Shake Reduction System
Shake Reduction(SR) minimizes camera shake on three axes, including yaw, pitch and roll and provides up to a 4 shutter steps* of compensation to produce crisp sharp images even when taking split-second snapshots or capturing images with challenging low-light conditions.
*Measured in conformity with CIPA standards.
The effects of the optical anti-aliasing (AA) filter are obtained with Shake Reduction (SR). Moving the image sensor slightly during the exposure suppresses false colors and moiré.
*This function is available at shutter speeds slower than 1/1000 second.
The GR IIIx is designed to be extremely compact, functional, and portable. The exterior frame is made of highly rigid magnesium alloy to improve dependability and durability while being carried or stored.
It provides a host of user-friendly features — including a short start-up time of approximately 0.8 seconds, control dials conveniently positioned next to the four-way controller, and effortless touch-screen operation — to enhance operability and allow the user to swiftly react to once-in-a-lifetime shutter opportunities.
RAW format data can be processed on the camera and saved as a JPEG file. Tune the photo exactly the way you want using just the camera, adjusting the recorded pixels, aspect ratio, white balance, Image Control, and sensitivity. The camera also lets you retain the adjusted parameters after the initial RAW-data development is completed, making it possible to make minute re-adjustment of the already-developed image with greater efficiency.
