Ricoh WG-50

 

Aside from its excellent macro mode, the WG-50 struggles to impress. Ricoh WG-50.

Lightweight, compact and tough construction ; Great macro shooting performance ; Wide choice of shooting modes

Sluggish autofocus ; No zoom rocker ; Unattractive styling

Stuck in the middle between premium and budget rugged cams, without offering much more than the latter, the WG-50 struggles to impress, aside from its excellent macro mode.

Ricoh WG-50 review

 

Does the rugged Ricoh run rings round its rivals?

Lightweight and compact ; Wide range of shooting modes ; Impressive macro shooting

Divisive design ; Ponderous autofocus ; No zoom rocker

A solid compact in more ways than one, but superior rugged options are available

The Ricoh WG-50 is an affordable toughened camera for taking pictures and videos in conditions in which you wouldn’t risk damaging your regular CSC or DSLR. Quality can’t compare to either of those formats of course – here we’re offered 16 effective...

Ricoh WG-50 Review

 

The Ricoh WG-50 is very closely based on the 2014-model year Ricoh WG-30, so if you've been trying unsuccessfully to pick up that discontinued model, you'll want to start shopping for the new version instead. In almost every respect, the Ricoh WG-50 is...
