Digital Camera Description

The Pentax Ricoh GR III is a Compact Digital Camera with an APS-C sensor. Its 24 Megapixels CMOS sensor offers an ISO 100-102400 sensitivity range which is expandable to ISO 100-102400. This makes it possible to shoot hand-held in very low-light. With 24 MP of resolution, sharp prints are possible up to at 240 DPI.

A builtin 3-Axis Image Stabilization mechanism allows the Pentax Ricoh GR III to compensate for camera shake up to 4-Stops beyond hand-holding.

This camera features a mechanic shutter that can expose for 1/4000 to 30s. This camera can make Bulb exposures up to 20m. With a fastest shutter-speed of 1/4000, fast action can easily be frozen. Night photography is possible using this digital camera due to its long exposure capability. This camera model offers Full Manual Controls.

Pentax Ricoh GR III

The Pentax Ricoh GR III features a Phase-Detect AF system. Autofocus can continuously adjust according to subject distance. A Real-Time Autofocus Tracking System allows focus to follow a moving subject within the frame. Manual Focus is also available.

Dual controls-dials offer direct access to most exposure parameters which makes this digital camera suitable for advanced photographers. This camera does not feature any seals to protect it against adverse weather, dust and moisture. Care must be taken, just like with most electronics. There is no viewfinder on the Pentax Ricoh GR III and no provision to add one.
