There’s a trend of NOT owning digital cameras, even a point-and-shoot variety, when traveling. However, if you are expecting yourself to rough it out and still capture images, you may want to consider picking up an all-weather adventure compact camera like the new Ricoh WG-70.
Armed with a 5x optical zoom lens with 28 mm wide-angle coverage, and a 16 effective megapixels BSI CMOS image sensor, the Ricoh WG-70 lets you capture super-high-resolution images and HD video clips even in the toughest of environments.
Moreover, triple anti-shake protection prevents blurred images and videos across all applications – which is expected during an outdoor adventure.
In the event of a drop, its shockproof construction protects it against from a height of 5 feet (1.6 meters) and if there’s water down below, fear not because it is also waterproof to a depth of 46 feet (14 meters).
If that’s not enough, it is freeze-proof too, capable of standing up to temperatures as low as 14 degrees Fahrenheit (-10 degrees Celsius). Finally, you can frame and review your recorded images in a large LCD monitor.
Ricoh WG-70 is really a compact shooter, measuring just 4.8 inches wide, 2.4 inches high and 1.2 inches deep (122 x 61 x 30 millimeters), and tips the scales at around 6.8 ounces (193g).
Ricoh WG-70 Ruggedized Digital Camera will hit the shelves starting mid-March, available on www.us.ricoh-imaging.com as well as retail outlets statewide for $279.95.
