Well, this is both interesting and also a shame, if it turns out to be the case. Ricoh has today announced the rumoured WG-7 waterproof compact camera. It’s capable of shooting for up to 2 hours continuously at a depth of up to 20 metres with impact resistance from drops of up to 2.1m and cold resistance down to -10°C.
But, it looks like it’s only being announced in Japan. At least for now. Pentax Rumors reports that the announcement is only for the Japanese Market. This could be backed up by the fact that it doesn’t appear to be on any of Ricoh’s other websites around the world. At least, not that I’ve been able to find.
