Ricoh WG 6 (14) (Large)

We were at the Ricoh launch event for the Ricoh GR III, and Ricoh had a Ricoh WG-6 to hand, so we had a hands-on look at this new camera. The camera offers a 20mp BSI CMOS sensor, a 5x optical zoom lens, equivalent to 28-140mm (in 35mm equivalent terms), and features 6 LED lights around the lens for extra illumination when shooting close-up macro shots.

The camera records 4K video at 30fps, and will be available in orange or black for £379, from March.

Ricoh WG-6 Key Features:

  • 20mp BSI CMOS sensor
  • 5x optical zoom lens
  • 20m waterproof
  • 2.1m shockproof
  • -10C freezeproof
  • 100kg crushproof
  • 4K 30fps video recording
