The Ricoh GR III updates the GR series in some really important ways, bringing a modern high-resolution sensor and hybrid autofocus system to the lineup for the first time. Controls have been simplified, and a new touch-sensitive rear screen makes autofocus positioning and image navigation much...

  • +

    Street shooting and casual photography, or travel photography where a small and light camera, with a medium-wide lens is very useful.

  • -

    Any work that requires long shooting sessions, long focal lengths, or low light shooting, where the GR III's autofocus system can struggle.

29 November 2018

The smartphone may have replaced a dedicated camera for many, but the Ricoh GR III is here to remind us that’s not universally the case. The latest in Ricoh’s series of super-pocketable street shooters, it packs the highest resolution sensor yet – and, at $899, the highest price tag too.

    APS-C sensor in a tiny form-factor, OIS is excellent, Image quality handily bests smartphone cameras

    Expensive, Autofocus can be frustrating, No EVF

First introduced in September 2018 , Ricoh GR III is a 24.0MP Large Sensor Compact camera with a APS-C (23.5 x 15.6 mm ) sized CMOS sensor, built-in Image Stabilization and 28 mm F2.8 lens. Ricoh replaced the older GR III with this model.

After thoroughly testing the Ricoh GR III , it becomes extremely easy to understand why this camera has garnered such excitement upon its launch.

“The Ricoh GR III will make you rethink whether a smartphone camera is ‘good enough.’”

16 May 2019

First off, it’s not just a street photography camera, although it’s certainly excellent for that. It’s also a terrific travel camera because of its compact size, easy operation and full feature set.

The Ricoh GR III is a premium APS-C format compact camera aimed at enthusiast photographers. According to Ricoh, ‘snap shooting is the basis of photography’ and the GRIII is the ultimate snap-shooting camera.

16 May 2019

With smartphones getting better in taking snapshots of your family gatherings and travels, it is tough to look at compact cameras as an alternative. Not when you have to bring one more piece of equipment for a trip.

27 July 2009

First introduced in July 2009 , Ricoh GR Digital III is a 10.0MP Small Sensor Compact camera with a 1/1.7-inch (7.44 x 5.58 mm ) sized CCD sensor and 28 mm F1.9 lens. Ricoh replaced the older with this model and later GR Digital III was replaced with Ricoh GR Digital IV.

Aside from its new lens, the GR IIIx is largely identical to its two-year-old GR III sibling, for good and for bad. Avid fans of GR cameras love the unparalleled pocketability, quick response, intuitive handling and sharp-looking DNG raws.

Disclaimer: I didn't buy this camera but I have had it for a while as a loaner, so my opinions are not biased by having spent money on it. The first thing you notice about the Ricoh GRIII is how ridicolously small and lightweight the camera is. It really fits a front pocket easily.

4 November 2021

It's just a masterpiece. I usually use Caonon 5dsr in Studio and sometimes Leica m10 & Leica vario in the street, but now I use 70% of my time this awesome little camera.

26 July 2019

Hello I had the Ricoh GRIII since May and this I want I think so far: What I like very much: This camera works better for street photography than anything I have tried before. It draws almost no attention. It is so small, easy to use and discrete.

19 May 2022

The GR 3X is a solid, well-built camera that feels like a quality product and the 26.1mm lens (40mm equiv.) is tack sharp. It took a few days getting used to not having a viewfinder, but I think it makes the GR3X even more discreet.

4 April 2022

As I got older I realised I had 2 backpacks of equipment that were killing me to haul around. so I started my journey through the minefield of compacts but could never find anything that offered me any decent IQ, until I borrowed a friends Ricoh GR Even Fuji didn’t give me what I wanted and was...

The GR111x is well made and compact. The 40mm equivalent lens is just right for me. It is quiet and the results out of camera are excellent. I like the touch screen but miss not having a viewfinder.

10 December 2020

Surprised to see there is no user review of GR III here, so I decided to write one. If you used and liked a GR II before, go ahead and buy one, you're gonna love this camera (but make sure that you also buy an extra battery).

9 October 2020

I've pre-ordered the GR III, so I've had it since release. My first camera in the series. I also have a Pentax DSLR, but if I could only keep one camera and one lens, this would be it.

    battery life

24 December 2019

I am a Pentaxian so I like how GRiii has many good features from Pentax. Just purchased the GR iii (produced in Oct 2019). Yes, battery life is not good (indeed Sony's NP-FW50 on A6xxx or FF isn't any better than the DB-110 GRiii) but it's actually not that bad and you can just buy good OEM...

4 December 2019

My biggest concern about picking this up was no evf and the high price tag. After a week of use, those things didn't matter. The battery is bad but I still manage 250-300+ per battery (normal screen brightness w/jpg+raw) and swapping between one spare is more than enough for a day or two on the...
