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.
