Today was a new beginning, I received my new camera – the Ricoh GR III Compact camera. Released in 2019, it has an APS-C image sensor of 24 megapixels. Ricoh billed it as “The ultimate snapshot camera for the times”. It has a lack of anti-aliasing filter, it has touch focus and a newly designed lens. Therefore, it provides ability in an extremely small package.
I know it will provide me with what I need to be more productive and creative. I can’t wait to get started with it. I’ve charged the battery, formatted the memory card and now, I just have to update the firmware and I’ll be ready to start with a beginner’s mind.
Here are my unboxing photos
Daido Moriyama used a Ricoh GR film camera to develop his body of work and used the GR III more recently The “Near Equal Moriyama Daido” post hosts an excellent video into the photographer.
I took the above photos with my iPhone 11 but I look to leave this behind and use the GR II exclusively.

Peace and photography
