RICOH GR III awarded as “Best Expert Compact Camera” and RICOH THETA Z1 “Best 360º Camera” by the TIPA World Awards 2019!
Best Expert Compact Camera: RICOH GR III
“Photographers who enjoy traveling with a compact camera that allows them to “grab” quality images without carrying more cumbersome gear will welcome the GR III. The magnesium-alloy camera sports an APS-C-size 24MP sensor with sensor-shift image stabilization (three axes) and on-sensor phase detection AF. The integral 28mm lens is composed of six elements (including two aspherical) in four groups, and can focus as close as 6cm. The GR III has a built-in 2-stop ND filter, a 3” touch-enabled LCD, and a USB-C socket to output video using the Displayport standard. The camera offers exposure modes, including +/- 5-stop exposure compensation.”
Best 360º Camera: RICOH THETA Z1
“The Z1 sports two 1-inch type illuminated CMOS sensors with a maximum ISO of 6400. It can capture 23MP Raw stills and 4K/30p 360-degree video and features new image processing algorithms and capture support that includes a new HDR Rendering mode, an Interval Composite mode and a multi-bracket mode. Stills can be recorded in JPEG or Adobe DNG format, while video is enhanced via a 4-channel microphone for 360-degree spatial audio recording. An updated lens and an improved aperture mechanism, for three aperture settings, as well as 3-axis stabilization adds to this unique camera’s appeal.”
