Ricoh Announces the Durable and Sleek WG-60 Tough Camera

0Share

Always a favorite among adventurers and those who require a camera that can take a beating, Ricoh has just announced its newest tough camera, the WG-60. This camera is a specialist in how it holds up against the elements: it has an IPX8 waterproof rating, making it submersible down to 45.9'; it is shockproof and can withstand falls from up to 5.2' high; it's freezeproof down to 14°F, making it perfect for those wintertime outings; crushproof to withstand up to 220 lbf of pressure; and, of course, it is dustproof, with a JIS Class 6 rating. All of this essentially means that the camera is designed to keep up with you. No matter where you go.

In terms of imaging, it is still an apt performer, with a 16MP CMOS sensor, capable of recording high-res stills, Full HD 1080p video, and working within a versatile ISO 125-6400 sensitivity range. Complementing the sensor is a 5x optical zoom lens, which covers a wide-angle to mid-telephoto 28-140mm equivalent range, and both Pixel Track and Digital SR modes help to produce sharp handheld shots. Other perennial highlights of the WG system include a 2.7" 230k-dot LCD monitor, with an Outdoor View mode to boost brightness, and a unique body design that incorporates six LED macro lights around the lens to produce brighter, more evenly lit close-up subjects.
