Available in a choice of lime green, champagne silver or black (as in the case of the review model), the Ricoh PX is a waterproof, shockproof and dust-resistant digital camera. Perhaps I should have included the word “compact” into that...

This is described as waterproof, I assume that applies when a partial sleeve is applied. What is more interesting is the zoom is not with the normal lens extension but by using a sort of periscope action inside the...

Rugged waterproof compact cameras tend to be fashioned to look as hardwearing as they claim to be, with chiselled edges, intricate details and exposed screw tops all giving the impression of solidity. Ricoh's PX proves this doesn't always have...

This 16 megapixel camera has a 5X optical zoom (28–140mm). It is waterproof to 3 metres for 60 minutes and can be dropped 1.5m without damaging the camera. It is small, with a face area slightly larger than a credit card and 20mm thick. The good...

Bisher waren Ricoh-Kameras aufgrund technischer Besonderheiten eher ein Nischenprodukt. Mit der Ricoh PX will der Hersteller nun den Massenmarkt erobern: Die Kamera ist staubdicht und begrenzt wasserfest. Mehr dazu im Test. Obwohl die Ricoh PX...
