Product Overview

Ricoh WG-6 is a 1/2.3" compact action camera designed to handle the environments. Introduced by Ricoh in 2019, it comes with a 1/2.3" sensor with 20 MP (5184 x 3888) resolution.
The camera has a poor battery life, and a second or third battery may be needed to get you through the day.
The Ricoh WG-6 comes with 9 autofocus points and a built-in GPS. Last but not least, the camera can focus quite close to the subject.

Sentiment Score 55%
Reviewers from trustedreviews have found the following***:
The Ricoh WG-6 makes some improvements on the previous model. The sensor has increased in resolution, but crucially remains at the same 1/2.3-inch size. The lens is not quite as wide (28mm vs 25mm), but the maximum aperture has reduced – now offering f/3.5-f/5.5. GPS is included for tracking where you’ve taken your shots, at least. Images and video are pleasant enough, with nicely saturated images.
