RICOH GR III chosen as the “Best compact/fixed lens camera” on DPR!

RICOH GR III won “Best compact/fixed lens camera” award on DPReview Awards 2019!

“This is always a tricky category, spanning multiple sensor formats and including both zoom and fixed focal length lenses. This year saw the release of some very impressive – and very different – compact / fixed-lens compact cameras, from the high-end Leica Q2 to the more consumer-friendly Canon PowerShot G5 X Mark II.

Despite their different shapes, sizes and prices, all of the cameras in this section cater to the same basic need: high quality imaging, in a compact form factor.”

 

Shortlist:
  • Canon PowerShot G5 X Mark II
  • Leica Q2
  • Ricoh GR III
  • Sony Cyber-shot RX100 VII

 

Winner: RICOH GR III

“First announced in 2018, the GR III was released this year and quickly became one of our favorite compact cameras. Small and lightweight, but with a stabilized sensor and capable of stunning image quality the GR III is – like the Sony Cyber-shot RX100 VII – a wonderful camera for travel and everyday photography.

Yes, the lens is a fixed 28mm equivalent. No, the video mode isn’t great, but this is a pure photography camera, capable of getting you images that larger, heavier or more complicated models simply won’t.”
