Product Overview

Ricoh WG-50 is a 1/2.3" compact action camera designed to handle the environments. Introduced by Ricoh in 2017, it comes with a 1/2.3" sensor with 16 MP (4608 x 3456) resolution.
The camera has a poor battery life, and a second or third battery may be needed to get you through the day. One should note that the Ricoh WG-50 has a 125 base ISO, which is not conducive to getting the cleanest images. The WG-50's 8.0 fps burst rate limits its use for certain types of photography, but it is hardly something that most photographers should worry about.
The Ricoh WG-50 comes with 9 autofocus points. Last but not least, the camera can focus quite close to the subject.
