Ricoh GR III Digital Camera

What do you know about this camera?

It says "New Arrival" on the top of the page.  It shows "Backordered" too.  

Just curious what's the attraction to this camera.  Never heard of it, yet it's under a grand and on back order.  Is this a camera I need to know about?

That page lists all the features of the camera. What's not clear?

Are you in the market for a P&S? Or do you need to know about every camera?

That is a modestly priced P&S with an APS-C sized sensor at 24MP that purports to handle low light situations. It doesn't have an interchangeable lens, probably a very short basic focal length (given the size of that opening) and likely will appeal to anyone that wants better photos in situations where their cell phone won't cut it.

Whether there's a market for it is another question. But it seems unique in some regards.

The Ricoh is camera that was possibly designed for street photographers because it is pretty popular with them.  It is small, inconspicuous and has a very good lens and sensor.  It isn't really a point and shoot but rather a small fixed lens mirrorless camera with full exposure control. 

For general photography a similar camera with a zoom lens may be more practical.  For most street photography it is almost ideal.
