High Resolution and High Contrast.
Introducing The Sharp Imaging of The Newly Developed GR Lens

The GR lens with a new lens construction was developed for even better image quality. This lens uses a slim optical system with six elements in four groups while maintaining the 18.3 mm (35 mm format equivalent: 28 mm) focal length and brightness of F2.8. High-refractive index, low dispersion glass and aspherical high-precision molded glass lenses are optimally placed in the lens construction to suppress distortion and chromatic aberration to the absolute limit, delivering a high level of sharpness. This results in images that are sharp and clear across the entire frame even from the widest aperture setting.

NEW

The Detailed Descriptive Power of The 24.2 M Large APS-C Size Image Sensor

This model is equipped with a high-resolution, wide dynamic range APS-C size CMOS image sensor (approx. 24.24 effective megapixels). It has approximately 1.5 times the pixels of the GR II and an anti-aliasing filterless construction that utilizes the characteristics of the high-resolution lens for high-definition detail reproduction. Both the image sensor and lens are also optimized for the best possible image quality.

NEW

Advanced Image Processing and Responsiveness.
Meet The New GR ENGINE 6

The imaging processor on this model is the new GR ENGINE 6. It elevates the essential high image quality performance of the GR for an even greater level of detail. Faster processing makes a high pixel count image sensor and multi-level gradation in 14-bit RAW possible. This also contributes to improved responsiveness and functionality for autofocus and movie.

NEW

Shooting at ISO 102400 is possible with our original signal processing technology

A high-performance processor "Accelerator Unit" has been adopted on this model as a powerful way to support high image quality. The signal output by the image sensor is sent to the image processor after being optimally handled. This reduces noise, delivering superb resolution and color reproduction across the entire sensitivity range. It also makes it possible to shoot at ISO 102400.

NEW

3-Axis, 4-Step Shake Reduction For High Image Quality Across a Wide Shooting Range

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*.

*CIPA standard.

New

AA Filter Simulator For Reducing False Colors and Moiré Thanks To Shake Reduction Mechanism

Thanks to the built-in SR system, by using the microscopic vibration of the image sensor unit during image exposure, generates the same level of moiré-reduction effect as optical AA (anti-aliasing) filter. Unlike fixed optical AA filters which always creates the identical result, this innovative simulator allows the user to adjust the level of the moiré-reduction effect from OFF, Type1 and Type2. Bracketing of all those settings is also possible. Depending on your subject, you can chose high resolution shooting or AA filtered shooting.

The ultimate snapshot camera for the times. While remaining true to its unchanging concept, the GR continues to evolve.

Superb image quality and portability for recording everything you see. Speed that is ready to capture split-second photo opportunities.

Ease of use and reliability as a tool of creative expression. The GR III is the new destination for such a search.

This model offers the very essence of recording instants in time as photos.

Experience the essence of the GR.

HIGH IMAGE QUALITY

24.2 M APS-C size image sensor

Approximately 24.24 effective megapixels deliver high image quality, and an anti-aliasing filterless construction delivers high-definition rendering even in the finest details.

Low noise, maximum ISO 102400

Original noise reduction processing results in high image quality even at high ISO sensitivity. 14-bit RAW recording is also supported for rich tonal reproduction.

The newly developed GR ENGINE 6

A newly developed imaging processor delivers further improvements in high image quality performance, elaborately detailed imaging across the entire sensitivity range, and superb color reproduction.

QUICK RESPONSE

High-speed hybrid AF

Image plane phase-matching AF delivers high-speed AF and contrast-detection AF offers superb focusing precision. The best of these two types are combined to make a hybrid AF. The common issue of searching for focus peaks in contrast-detection AF has been significantly reduced on this model. The hybrid system delivers faster autofocus and greater precision.

Shake Reduction mechanism for 4 steps* of compensation

This model uses the sensor-shift type, Shake Reduction mechanism. It delivers compensation on three axes.

*Shutter speed conversion. CIPA standard.

Direct controls

The camera is equipped with an LCD monitor that supports touch operations and a convenient control dial. These features provide quick control over AF frame movement and menu access.

PORTABILITY

Made more compact to achieve the ultimate in snapshot cameras

The body size of this model is about the same as the GR DIGITAL IV (model with a 1/1.7 type image sensor) while delivering a completely new dimension of performance for the GR series. Controls are improved while maintaining the pursuit of portability, bringing us one step closer to the ultimate snapshooter.

EVOLVING

Expanded functionality firmware for an ever-evolving GR III

The GR III keeps evolving with the latest firmware updates. The expanded functionality firmware is provided to add new features and setting operations.

Flexible customization

Frequently used functions can be assigned to the ADJ lever and Fn button. Other controls can also be customized for fine tuning camera operation, making the camera easier to use and to match your shooting style.

Image Control & JPEG image adjustment

The GR III features many selections of advanced image creation functions. Image adjustment parameters have been redesigned to 10 Image Control options for shooting. During playback, image tones of JPEG can be adjusted and saved as a new file.
