Digital Camera Description

The Pentax Ricoh WG-6 is a Compact Digital Camera with a 1/2.3" sensor. Its 20 Megapixels CMOS sensor offers an ISO 125-6400 sensitivity range which is expandable to ISO 125-6400. This makes it possible to shoot hand-held in relatively low-light. With 20 MP of resolution, sharp prints are possible up to at 240 DPI.

This camera features a mechanic shutter that can expose for 1/4000 to 4s. With a fastest shutter-speed of 1/4000, fast action can easily be frozen. Given that is does not support very slow shutter-speeds, this camera is unsuitable for night photography.

Pentax Ricoh WG-6

The Pentax Ricoh WG-6 features a 9-point Contrast-Detect AF system. Manual Focus is also available.

The Pentax Ricoh WG-6 is waterproof to a 20 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-6 and no provision to add one.
