Picture perfect moments may arrive anytime and anywhere that is why it’s important to have a handy digicam that you can take and shoot with you at the spur of the moment. Enter the new Ricoh PX – an everyday workhorse digital camera. This dust-proof and lightly submersible camera is waterproof up to 3 meters or 10 feet and impact resistant up to 1.5 meters. It’s not exactly a deep sea diving camera but when there’s a need to take a picture in the rain or by the poolside, the Ricoh PX pretty much does the job without the owner having to worry about water damage. The PX digicam also comes with 5x zoom lens and 28-140mm equivalent focal lengths. It also has a 2.7-inch 230,000 dot display for previewing and navigating through contents.
Don’t let the familiar and seemingly innocent appearance of the Ricoh PX fool you. Under its colored silicone body jacket is an aluminum clad camera. This point and shoot camera is so compact that its lens doesn’t extend when it’s turned on, giving it a sleeker appearance. Instead of extending its lens, it uses a periscope-style lens win an image stabilizer sensor at one end. Although the PX is quite simple to use, more advance features are also available like adjustable upper limit of Auto ISO and a variety of scene modes.
