Ricoh GR Digital III

On Tuesday, Ricoh will be releasing a firmware update for the GR Digital III, which is the first firmware update aimed to enhance functionality. The new firmware update will offer external flash GF-1 compatibility, addition of function for playback by date, addition of paging function for multi-frame views, menu paging function, addition of new focus distance when snap is selected and addition of ADJ. ISO direct change function.

Press Release:

Ricoh have announced that it will release on 1st December 2009 the first function-enhancing firmware update for its GR Digital III, a high image quality compact digital camera launched in August 2009.

Successor model to the GR Digital II, which went on sale in November 2007, the GR Digital III features a F1.9 large-aperture lens and achieves high image quality in a compact body. Ricoh's function-enhancing firmware updates are developed in response to opinions and requests received from a large number of customers via GR BLOG, surveys submitted at customer registration time, etc. These updates enable customers who already own a GR Digital III to update their firmware to include the latest functions.

In conjunction with the introduction of the new GXR, this first release enables the GR Digital III to use new functions that include functions of the GXR (functions 2 to 5 below).

The function-enhancing firmware and instructions for using these functions can be downloaded free of charge from the Ricoh website.

Enhanced functions:
  1. External flash GF-1 compatibility - When the GF-1 external flash is connected, it is possible to switch to flash mode by pushing the flash button. *During interval shooting, even if the GF-1 or some other external flash is connected, it will not flash.
  2. Addition of function for playback by date - When the 81-frame view is displayed in playback mode, pushing the thumbnail display button again changes to a view sorted by date.
  3. Addition of paging function for multi-frame views - When using multi-frame views (20-frame, 81-frame, or date sequence), it is possible to switch between the image selection screen and the paging screen.
  4. Menu paging function - When displaying the shooting menu, the setup menu, or items selected in Edit My Settings, it is possible to switch pages using the zoom button.
  5. Addition of new focus distance when snap is selected - The setting choice 1.5 m has been added to the snap focus distances of the shooting menu.
  6. Addition of ADJ. ISO direct change function - The ADJ. ISO direct change function has been added to the setup menu. If it is set ON, in situations where shooting is possible, moving the ADJ. lever right/left changes the ISO sensitivity.
Please visit the software downloads section on the Ricoh website on Tuesday 1st December 2009 for the new firmware download.
