Ricoh GR III gets firmware update to improve low-light focusing, add Wi-Fi Image Sync option
The Ricoh GR III is far from perfect, but it's won over the heart of at least one DPReview writer. Many of the imperfections it has can't be fixed with a firmware update, but Ricoh is still attempting to address at least a few problems with the camera in the form of a new firmware update — version 1.10.
The updated firmware improves the autofocus performance of the camera in dark scenes and low-contrast environments, a complaint note by Barney in the aforementioned article. It also adds a Wi-Fi option for Image Sync (version 2.0.4 or later) and fixes a number of under-the-hood issues to improve the overall stability of the camera.
Firmware version 1.10 for the Ricoh GR III will be available to downloaded for macOS and Windows on Ricoh's website by the end of the day, according to a Ricoh spokesperson. If you can't wait, you can download it from Ricoh Japan's English-translated website.
