Ricoh GR III

The Ricoh GR III continues Ricoh’s long-running series of GR cameras that have become favorites of street photographers and as pocketable cameras for travel photographers. The series started with film cameras and then evolved into digital. The GR III was released in September 2018. It features a 28mm ƒ/2.8 built-in lens and has an APS-C sensor. (Note: There’s also a GR Digital III that is an older camera (2009) with a smaller sensor.)
