1.Has a flip-out screen
Ricoh GR IIIx
Flip-out screens can be useful for tricky shots.
The device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures caused by dust, raindrops, and water splashes.
The focus motor moves the lens in order to autofocus. For system cameras, having a focus motor in the camera's body allows you to use a wide range of lenses, including lenses which do not have their own focus motor. For compact cameras, a focus motor is usually built-in.
An optical viewfinder (or OVF) allows the photographer to compose a shot while seeing exactly what the lens will capture. OVFs have no time lag and require no power - as opposed to electronic viewfinders, which can drain battery life. OVFs are also better in low light situations.
We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
6.Has a hot shoe
Ricoh GR IIIx
A hot shoe can be used to attach an external flash, as well as light meters, viewfinders, rangefinders and other attachments.
A higher screen resolution provides a sharper image, making it easier to review your photos.
8.is a system camera
Ricoh GR IIIx
A system camera has many interchangeable components such as lenses, flashes, and other accessories. System cameras offer greater flexibility than compact cameras.
9.has a touch screen
Ricoh GR IIIx
You can operate the device easily, by pressing the screen with your fingers.


1.sensor size

23.5 x 15.6mm

The larger the sensor the more light the sensor captures yielding in better image quality.
The number of megapixels determines the resolution of the images captured with the main camera. A higher megapixel count means that the camera is capable of capturing more details. However, the megapixel count is not the only important element determining the quality of an image.
With a higher light sensitivity (ISO level), the sensor absorbs more light. This can be used to capture moving objects using a fast shutter speed, or to take images in low light without using a flash.
Fast continuous shooting is useful for catching action shots.
5.has AF tracking
Ricoh GR IIIx
With AF tracking, once you choose the subject and press the shutter release part way down, as the subject moves, the autofocus will follow it. No more out of focus shots.
Optical image stabilization uses gyroscopic sensors to detect the vibrations of the camera. The lens adjusts the optical path accordingly, ensuring that any type of motion blur is corrected before the sensor captures the image.
Phase-detection autofocus is much faster than a contrast detection autofocus, allowing for sharper images.
A faster maximum shutter speed allows taking pictures of fast moving subjects without blur.
9.shoots raw
Ricoh GR IIIx
A raw image file contains minimally processed data from the image sensor. Raw files are so named because they are not yet processed and therefore are not ready to be printed or edited with a bitmap graphics editor.


The maximum resolution available for videos shot with the main camera. Although it may be possible to choose among other frame rates, those recordings usually have lower resolutions.
A phase-detection autofocus system is faster than a contrast detection autofocus system. Even when recording scenes with a lot of fast movements, the videos are sharp and clear.
When recording movies they stay focussed and sharp.
4.Has timelapse function
Ricoh GR IIIx
A timelapse shows a long passage of time sped up. A series of photographs taken from the same position over a long period is joined together to create a short video. It is great way to capture things like the setting sun, or clouds moving across the sky.
5.has a 24p cinema mode
Ricoh GR IIIx
24p is a video format (24 frames per second) traditionally used in cinema. Nowadays, it is used to create film-like motion characteristics.
Slow-motion is an artistic video effect that makes time seem to go slower. It is achieved by recording a video at a higher frame-rate than the standard playback rate of 24fps or 30fps. Depending on camera capabilities, frame rates for slow-motion videos vary between 60fps and 960fps.


1.has a microphone input
Ricoh GR IIIx
A microphone port allows connecting external high-end or specialized microphones.
A stereo microphone allows to record audio files or movies in stereo without an external microphone.
More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.
With a standard mini jack socket, you can use the device with most headphones.


CIPA is an independent, standard measurement that determines how many shots a camera can take before the battery dies.
The battery is removable and can be replaced by the user if broken.
The battery can be recharged and used over again.
An indicator shows you when the device has low battery.


1.supports Wi-Fi
Ricoh GR IIIx
The device can connect to Wi-Fi.
The device has a standard memory slot (such as an SD or micro SD card slot) that enables you to extend the built-in internal storage with affordable memory modules, or easily retrieve data, such as photographs, from the memory card.
Wi-Fi 4 (802.11n) is a wireless standard released in 2009. It has faster transfer rates and improved security compared to its predecessors – a, b, and g.
4.has an HDMI output
Ricoh GR IIIx
Devices with a HDMI or mini HDMI port can transfer high definition video and audio to a display.
This technology allows the users to use their smartphone as a remote control for the device.
6.has GPS
Ricoh GR IIIx
GPS enables global positioning, useful in map, geo-tagging or navigation apps.
7.Has dual card slots
Ricoh GR IIIx
It has two memory card slots, allowing you to store more photos without switching cards. This is particularly useful on long shoots when you need more space.
Newer USB versions are faster and have better power management.
9.has NFC
Ricoh GR IIIx
NFC (near-field communication) allows a device to perform simple wireless transactions, such as mobile payments. Note: this feature may not be available in all markets.


1.Has a remote control
Ricoh GR IIIx
A remote control allows you to control the device remotely. The remote control can be included or optional.
2.has an accelerometer
Ricoh GR IIIx
An accelerometer is a sensor used to measure the linear acceleration of a device. A common application is detecting when a device changes between vertical and horizontal positions.
3.has a cellular module
Ricoh GR IIIx
Devices that use cellular technology can connect to mobile networks. Cellular networks have much wider signal coverage than Wi-Fi.
4.Automatically syncs
Ricoh GR IIIx
The device automatically syncs your data when in range of your computer or smartphone.
5.has a front camera
Ricoh GR IIIx
A front camera, also called secondary camera, can be used for video chats/selfies.
Damage-resistant glass (such as Corning Gorilla Glass or Asahi Dragontrail Glass) is thin, lightweight, and can withstand high levels of force.
7.has a compass
Ricoh GR IIIx
A compass is useful for gaming, maps, and navigation software.
8.is DLNA-certified
Ricoh GR IIIx
All DLNA-certified products are compatible with one another. When different devices are connected to the same network, data can be transferred easily between them.
A dual-tone flash has LED lights with different color temperatures, delivering a better color balance to photos and videos.
