Where are you finding an indication that there is "another battery"? You've mentioned this twice but I have not seen any information from Ricoh that this is so.


GR III Street Edition - Ricoh
It was stated at first and corrected later.

I still dont understand why we have to press the shutter to record an image - especially during the scenario when we use a finger to select the focus point. Holding it for a second on the focus point should activate the shutter automatically. Or use iPhone-like 3D-touch technology.

This review suggests 'touch to activate shutter' is included on the Street Edition and will be coming via firmware update to the regular GRiii later this year, fingers crossed.

And Ricoh released the GR III firmware:
QuoteQuote:
Enhanced functions

[Full Press Snap function is possible by touching the LCD screen]

The full-press snap function can be used not only by pressing the shutter button all at once, but also by touching the LCD monitor.
With this update, it has the same functions as "RICOH GR III Street Edition" (version 1.40).

How to use details:Function Expand Firmware | RICOH GR III | RICOH IMAGING


Function modification

[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.

Hmm... is this applicable to GR III Street Edition, as well as to the regular GR III?

From the wording, I'd say it's the firmware that the SE came with? They just probably took a bit longer to bring it out to the regular cameras because they had to make sure nothing broke during the update process I guess.

"Nothing broke" probably means no GR III Street Edition logo appearing anywhere

Firmware 1.X: fixed a bug where owners of the basic GR iii model had salt poured on the "it's not the objectively prettier version" wound on switch off?

People will still want to capture a "special moment", which could happen some seconds after the focus point has been found - no reason to capture n shots which you know beforehand are not wanted.

I still don’t understand what you are suggesting.
I may hold my camera at several possible framing points before deciding which one I want.
I need some way of telling it which one to record, and the shutter button is the traditional way of telling it to record.
What are you suggesting would be a better way??
{I am typing this on an iPhone8, incidentally}.
