Dubbed an all-weather extreme compact camera, the orange Ricoh WG-6 is distinguished by its impressively rugged physical design, incorporation of useful shooting modes, and versatile imaging capabilities. Its durable exterior construction renders it waterproof to depths of 65.6', shockproof from heights of 6.6' as well as freezeproof, crushproof, dustproof, and resistant to chemical disinfection. In regard to imaging capabilities, the WG-6 features a 20MP BSI CMOS sensor, which enables high-resolution stills shooting, a sensitivity range from ISO 125-6400, and UHD 4K30 video recording as well as Movie SR+ and Movie SR stabilization modes to help steady video footage. A 5x optical zoom lens also contributes to this flexibility, and covers a wide-angle to telephoto 28-140mm equivalent focal length range. Additionally, the WG-6 incorporates a bright 3.0" 1.04m-dot AR-coated LCD monitor, an LED ring light to benefit photographing close-up subjects, and a high-accuracy GPS module to permit embedding location information within your image files.

Would WG-6 work well for aquarium photography ...

Would WG-6 work well for aquarium photography (outside glass looking in, flat up against front glass to back 12")? Thanks!
Asked by: Jay
Answering my own question, after further research I found DPReview TV "Waterproof Compact Camera Roundup 2019 (Ricoh WG-6, Olympus TG-6, Panasonic TS7 / FTZ)" from 06/22/2019, that mentions optical zoom doesn't work while recording movies, I confirmed this on Ricoh's website FAQs as of 10/24/2023. Quite disappointed as the WG-6 looks like it would work well for aquarium stills, especially because it's 6 LEDs, but I do like to record short videos where I zoom in to the subject as I follow it, to give perspective of size.
