Digital Camera Description

The Pentax Ricoh WG-20 is a Compact Digital Camera with a 1/2.3" sensor. Its 14 Megapixels CCD sensor offers an ISO 80-6400 sensitivity range which is expandable to ISO 80-6400. This makes it possible to shoot hand-held in relatively low-light. With 14 MP of resolution, sharp prints are possible up to at 240 DPI.

This camera features a mechanic shutter that can expose for 1/1500 to 4s. With a fastest shutter-speed of 1/1500, fast action cannot be frozen. Given that is does not support very slow shutter-speeds, this camera is unsuitable for night photography.

Pentax Ricoh WG-20

The Pentax Ricoh WG-20 features a 9-point Contrast-Detect AF system. Autofocus can continuously adjust according to subject distance. A Real-Time Autofocus Tracking System allows focus to follow a moving subject within the frame. Manual Focus is also available.

The Pentax Ricoh WG-20 is waterproof to a 10 meter depth for a maximum of 120 minutes. The weatherproof construction of this digital camera protects it against adverse weather, dust and moisture. This particular model is also freezeproof down to -10C. There is no viewfinder on the Pentax Ricoh WG-20 and no provision to add one.
