About this deal

The Ricoh GR3 is a major step forward for the Ricoh GR series of cameras and while it’s not perfect, it’s a great choice for street photography. The GR III is the first in the GR series to sport 3-axis in-body image stabilization. This is rated by Ricoh at 4-stops. In practice, I’ve found I can get sharp images of stationary objects at shutter speeds down to about 1/8sec. If I limit my intake of strong Vietnamese coffee, I can achieve sharpness whilst hand-holding at 1/4 sec. Quite impressive for a tiny point and shoot. f8 and be there Located on the banks of the Loire in the heart of the village. A building completely renovated in a sober and contemporary style, which has retained its charm of yesteryear. A large & beautiful old house where you can stay & where you can enjoy a delicious breakfast in the soft light of the morning, in the living room or on the terrace. The lens and sensor are perfectly matched (a bit like the Fujifilm X100 series with its 23mm f/2.0 lens, and the Leica Q with its 28mm f/1.7). This means there are no compromises regarding sharpness. The lens is easily capable of resolving the full 24mp of the sensor. Wide-open at f/2.8 images are center sharp but a little soft in the corners, as is normal for most lenses, but stopping down to just f/4 gives edge-to-edge sharpness. Nice! Recording capacity shows approximate number of shots recorded during CIPA compliant testing. Actual performance may vary depending on operating conditions.

in the South of France. With a beautiful park along the Allier River, L'Etoile Guesthouse is located in The camera body has been treated with an attractive metallic gray finish that designed to appeal to a street photographer, symbolizing the asphalt pavement in the city. It’s also accentuated with an orange-yellow ring encircling the lens barrel. The exterior finish features an elegantly grained texture created by repeatedly spraying droplets of a coating material onto the camera body. Although smooth in appearance, this special paint also helps improve camera hold.has been taken, White Balance Adjustment the white balance, and Color Moire Correction usefully removes any artificial color banding. There's also in-camera RAW Development, with 9 different parameters available. Hi bill yes your right and thanks for reminding me to remember lol (only kidding) i agree with you of course but i just think sometimes all those variables just force the issue that if your trying to recreate something particular for yourself its ok to use the artist in yourself to interpret the model in the way it is special to you.

Camera shake is reduced for crisp images even when taking split-second snapshots. Shake Reduction is installed while making the body size of the GR III more compact than its predecessor model. It minimizes the shake on three axes, including yaw, pitch and roll. Compensation effects deliver as many as 4 steps of shutter speed*. The latest firmware version (v. 1.41) allows for touch-screen activation of both focus and shutter release. In other words, you point the lens at the subject, compose the image on the screen and simply touch where you want the focus point to be and you’ve captured the image. File Format: MPEG4 AVC/H.264 (MOV), Recorded Pixels: Full HD (1920×1080, 60p/30p/24p), Sound: Built-in stereo microphone, Recording Time: Up to 25 minutes or 4GB; automatically stops recording if the internal temperature of the camera becomes high.You can shoot this way with any mirrorless camera by manually setting the lens to appropriate distance for a given aperture. But most modern cameras don’t have a reliable focus distance scales for manual focus and you have to “estimate” the distance by focusing on an object in the real world. By applying microscopic vibrations with sub-pixel precision to the image sensor unit during exposure, the camera’s AA (anti-aliasing) Filter Simulator* provides the same level of moiré reduction as an optical AA filter. This innovative simulator allows the user not only to switch the AA filter effect on and off, but also to select the effect to the level best suited for a given subject. inch TFT color LCD (aspect ratio 3:2)、Approx. 1037K dots, Wide viewing angle, Air-gapless tempered glass In addition to the camera, the kit includes a pair of exclusive accessories: a compact, detachable viewfinder featuring the identical metallic gray finish and a genuine-leather hand strap. The viewfinder has the number 28 imprinted on its top panel to highlight the camera’s angle of view, while the strap’s stopper is finished in orange-yellow identical to the camera’s lens barrel ring.

The Ricoh GR III once again offers Full HD movie recording, but this time around does so at 60p as well as at 30/24p. During recording the camera can be set to continuously focus on the centre of the frame (manual, snap and infinity focus options are also available). Various image Effects including Retro and Bleach Bypass are available during movie recording, and the white balance can also be set, but annoyingly you still can't set the aperture or shutter speed, just like on the GR II, so you'll have to rely on the camera's exposure system when shooting video. It's fair to say that video really isn't this camera's strong point. The Ricoh GR III handled chromatic aberrations excellently during the review, with very limited purple fringing present around the All in all, the image quality produced by this sensor and lens combo is remarkable to say the least. I have to keep reminding myself that these shots were taken with this tiny little camera!

Body Size and Handling

i dont wish to anger anyone here im just offering the results of my experimentation and interpretation of how i remember them and how they look to me. I’m typically an eye-level viewfinder kind of guy who enjoys the precision of framing my shots with an enlarged viewfinder image. Especially one where I can dial in my prescription with a diopter! Three-axis, four-step shake reduction: Thanks to the originally developed SR (Shake Reduction) mechanism, the GR III effectively compensates for camera shake at the time of shutter release. Its three-axis mechanism minimizes adverse effects of camera shake caused by pitch, yaw and roll by as much as four shutter steps. As with all these things, I guess there's the problem of change management. In the mid-70s, if the RAF decided to go from the DG/DSG/LAG to DG/DSG scheme, I don't suppose they would have immediately painted every aircraft in the new scheme. Why XW916 escaped the paint sprayers I don't know.

center-weighted, spot and the new highlight-weighted metering, which as the name suggests prioritises getting the exposure right for the highlight parts of the image. If you don't like composing your photos by holding the camera at arms length and looking at the LCD screen, there's also another way of framing

You can still buy the GR2 for an excellent price and it’s pretty tempting. But the advances in image quality, high ISO performance and overall usability DEFINITELY make the GR3 worth the difference. Rather than an optical anti-aliasing filter in the camera, the GR III has an innovative anti-aliasing simulator instead, which can be turned off (default setting) or on to either the Low or High setting, which adjusts the level of the effect. This feature effectively provides the same level of moiré reduction as an optical AA filter. after much experimentations i have found that for raf green you can use. hu163, 75, 91, 116, and even 155, but for that in use look one of my favourites to use is actually hu66 i have used that very successfully on my harrier gr3. This camera allows the photographer to instantly activate the Full Press Snap feature* with a single touch on the LCD panel. This feature shifts the lens to a preselected focal point the moment the shutter release button is fully pressed. It can also be assigned to the LCD screen, assuring the photographer of flawless point-and-shoot photography to capture once-in-a-lifetime shutter opportunities. One of the strong points of the GR series, this feature comes in handy when taking snapshots on the street and will be available in the standard GR III via a firmware update that is scheduled for release later this year.
