The Perfect Street Camera, The Ricoh GR III Street Edition

  By Ryley Smith


The Ricoh GR III took the urban world by storm back in 2019. With its compact design and superb image quality, it became the perfect street camera. Now, Ricoh upped their game with the Ricoh GR III Street Edition! This high-quality, limited quantity, kit comes with exclusive features, an updated design, and more, making it even cooler than the original! 

The first thing you’ll notice about the Ricoh GR III Street Edition is its special exterior finish. In a stylish metallic grey, the GR III Street Edition has a distinctive grained texture, which is created by repeatedly spraying droplets of the coating material onto the camera body. This not only gives it a luxurious, smooth look but improves overall camera hold. Then the GR III Street Edition is accented with a funky yellow-orange ring around the lens barrel to symbolically represent “Brilliance on the street”.

The next thing you’ll notice is the new, external, features of the Ricoh GR III Street Edition. It now includes a Special Edition GV-2 Viewfinder. This compact, detachable viewfinder has the same metallic gray finish as the camera and has the number 28 imprinted on its top panel to highlight the camera’s angle of view. It also comes with a Special Edition Leather Hand Strap. The strap’s stopper is finished in the same orange-yellow colour as the lens barrel ring, enhancing the overall look.

The GR III Street Edition now has a Full Press Snap feature, which allows you to focus on a specified distance and shoot. This is instantly activated with a single touch on the LCD panel. With this fast-shooting function, you can set up your shot precisely, then capture the photo at the perfect moment.

Another exclusive feature of the GR III Street Edition is the display when the camera is powered off. When you turn off the camera, it will display a shutdown screen consisting of the specially designed product logo and a street-view image that symbolizes the camera’s “street snapshot” concept.

Overall, this is a super cool camera, perfectly made for the street! There are only a limited number of them being made, so if you want to pre-order your very own Ricoh GR III Street Edition, click here!
