Pentax Outdoor Cameras: Ricoh WG5 Orange (2)

The current flagship camera in the Pentax outdoor camera range is the Ricoh WG-4 GPS. If you're looking for a camera that you can take anywhere, no matter what the weather is like, without having to worry so much about protecting your kit, then the WG-4 GPS could be the camera for you. Here is a rundown of the key features:

Take Anywhere Cameras

The WG-5 GPS is an adventure-proof camera that you can take anywhere. With a rugged design, you can take the camera anywhere and even use it with gloves on easily in the cold. 


Waterproof, Dustproof, Shockproof, Coolproof, Crushproof

The WG-5 GPS is waterproof to 14m, dustproof, and shockproof to a height of 2.2 meters, meaning you can take the camera into the water with you and capture a different side of life. The camera can withstand temperatures as cold as -10 degrees c, and can take a weight of 100kg, making it the perfect camera for fearless photographers. 


A Wide Variety of Images

Both cameras feature a 4x wide-angle optical zoom and can shoot in full HD video, allowing you to capture everything from vast landscapes to macro images with ease, using the built-in macro lights around the lens. With an aperture of f/2.0, the lens is also bright, allowing you to take great images even in low light situations. 


Extreme Sports Photos / Videos

There are several mounts and adapters available for the WG-5 GPS, allowing the camera to be attached to a helmet, the front of a bike, kayak and various other sporting equipment. This will allow you to capture great videos of your adventures without having to carry the camera in your hand. It's lightweight, so you won't even know it's there.
