Available in black and orange, the new Ricoh WG-50 rugged compact camera is now officially announced. Its rugged physical construction renders it waterproof for depths up to 45.9′ and shockproof from heights of 5.2′, as well as freeze, crush, and dustproof to resist nearly anything you can throw at it. In terms of imaging, the WG-50 features a 16MP 1/2.3″ CMOS sensor that enables high-resolution stills shooting and Full HD 1080p video recording, as well as a sensitivity range from ISO 125-6400 and a top shooting rate of 10 fps to suit working in a variety of situations. A 5x optical zoom lens also contributes to this flexibility, and covers a wide-angle to telephoto 28-140mm equivalent focal length range, and is complemented by Pixel Track and Digital SR to help realize sharper imagery.

The new Ricoh WG-50 waterproof camera will cost $279/£249, and it will start shipping on June 23, 2017.
