Ricoh is launching a new limited-edition version of its GR III fixed-lens compact camera. The Ricoh GR III Diary Edition will initially be available in a limited-edition kit with premium case and strap from the end of this month, before going on general sale in camera-only form this spring.

The GR III Diary edition shares the same features of with the original Ricoh GR III, which is still on sale. The camera has become a street photographer's favorite thanks to its big APS-C 24 megapixel sensor, combined with a fast, fixed 18.3mm f/2.8 wideangle lens. First launched in 2019, an earlier special edition of the camera was introduced in 2020 in the shape of the Ricoh GR III Street Edition.
