Ricoh announces RICOH GR III Diary Edition Special Limited Kit

Limited-edition package includes premium, specially-finished digital compact camera, new image mode and exclusive accessories


PARSIPPANY, NJ, January 9, 2023 — Ricoh Imaging Americas Corporation today announced the RICOH GR III Diary Edition Special Limited Kit. This package features the RICOH GR III premium digital compact camera with a metallic, warm-gray finish. Available in a limited quantity of only 2,000 units worldwide, it includes exclusive, specially-designed accessories including a leather finger strap, identical in color to the camera body; a ring cap and metallic hot shoe cover, both finished in a natural silver color; and a camera case made of unbleached sailcloth with a leather accent.

The RICOH GR III Diary Edition debuts a new image-control mode that provides a negative-film finishing touch. This new mode, which will also be available for RICOH GR III and RICOH GR IIIx series models via firmware update, produces an exquisite balance between rich colors and the unique discoloration common in prints produced from negative film.

The RICOH GR III Diary Edition Special Limited Kit will be available late January 2023 only on the Ricoh Imaging website for the manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $1,149.95.

The RICOH GR III Diary Edition (camera body only, without the leather hand strap, ring cap, metallic hot shoe cover or the sailcloth case) is scheduled for availability in the spring of 2023.
