Ricoh’s Pentax K1 camera has proven to be a respectable full-frame camera that puts the Pentax name back on the map. One of its main features is its magnesium alloy body, which Ricoh claims is thoroughly weather-sealed.
To test just how weather-sealed it truly is, YouTuber Studient Richard decided to do the unthinkable; rub mud all over the camera and give it a solid bath within a sink.
I’m not quite sure the context of the video is in its entirety, but from the crudely translated subtitles YoUTube provides, it appears as though this dirty test of the K1 was for nothing more than to see if it could survive being rubbed in mud and drenched with water.
We won’t spoil the news as to whether or not the camera survives. Press play and find out for yourself.
