I’ve posted a detailed hands-on review of the Ricoh WG-50 separately. The short version is that it’s waterproof, crushproof, freezeproof, and dustproof, all in a compact package. And it’s competitively priced.
It’s one of a category of cameras I call adventure cams in that they’re ready for pretty much anything, as comfortable below the water as above it, and still offer the kinds of image quality and features that you’d expect from a standard compact camera.
So here’s a small collection of sample images taken with a WG-50 under various conditions and with different kinds of scenes. The camera produces JPGs at up to 16MP with dimensions of 4608 x 3456 pixels.
These have been imported into Lightroom, but for nearly all of them, the processing is only with a very light touch. The ones of the icebergs have a little more processing mostly to make the most of the detail in the highlights. You can click on each image to open a full-size version for a closer look.
