Ricoh GR III Firmware v1.41 Released

New "full press snap" option for all GR III owners

By Indopunk in Firmware Updates on Aug 5, 2020

Ricoh Imaging released the sixth firmware update, v1.41, for the recently-launched GR III. This update provides all GR III owners with the "full press snap" shooting mode from the GR III Street Edition, and fixes a GPS-related bug.  Thus, it applies to both camera models.  Like all updates, it is cumulative and includes everything added in prior updated firmware versions.

Firmware Release Notes

Enhanced feature:
The [Full Press Snap] function has been added as [Touch AF] setting in the C2 menu [Customize Controls]. By touching the LCD monitor, focus on the specified [Snap Focus Distance] then release the shutter.

  • Full Press Snap is not possible in the movie, macro, and self-timer shooting modes.
  • For more details click here
  • This function is supported on RICOH GR III Street Edition (Firmware version 1.40)

Bug fix:
[Correct location information record]
In the case of south latitude or west longitude, the location information acquired from the smartphone was not recorded accurately in the Exif GPS tag, and the GPS location display in [Playback Details] was corrected.


Note: The dedicated end screen of "RICOH GR III Street Edition" (version 1.40) will be maintained even with the new firmware version.
