  • Summary: This waterproof camera has everything you need and more. It can operate under water and captures great action shots and video on land. It is durable and can tolerate exposure to water, freezing temperatures and wet snow. We are impressed with the microscope mode for filming tiny objects with detail that you can’t see with the naked eye. If you need a camera that will go all the places you do – from the beach to the slopes – the Ricoh WG-4 can do it.
  • Pros: This waterproof camera boasts the most durable casing design in its class. It is constructed with reinforced plastic and aluminum, and its rubbery grip is easy to hold onto when wet.
  • Cons: To use the wireless charger, you have to purchase a charger pad.

  • Conclusion: Finally, the WG-4 GPS also features a small, front-mounted LCD screen. It'll display the time, as well altitude and air pressure. It's also backlit for darker conditions and is a useful addition if you don't fancy taking your watch underwater.
  • Pros: Image quality at low sensitivities, Wide-aperture lens, Great build Useful features, Well priced
  • Cons: Poor screen design, High ISO noise, No panorama mode or Wi-Fi, Little to grip on to, Almost identical to WG-3 GPS

Ricoh WG-4 : Unverwüstliche Outdoor-Kamera im Härtetest

netzwelt
12 September 2014
  • Summary: Kleine unverwüstliche Kamera Die Ricoh WG-4 ist robust! In dieser Disziplin reicht ihr kein Modell eines anderen Herstellers bislang das Wasser. Die Bildqualität leidet unter der hohen Auflösung und dem kleinen Sensor , ist aber bis ISO 400 noch gut. Die WG-4 ist die Kompaktkamera für harte Einsätze oder Kinderhände - einsteigerfreundlich und gut zu bedienen. Als GPS-Variante ist auch Geo-Tagging mit an Bord. Man merkt der Ricoh  an, dass sie auf Robustheit getrimmt ist.
  • Pros: LED Ringlicht, Wasserdicht bis 14 Meter, Gehäuse hält 100 Kilogramm Druck aus
  • Cons: Bildqualität, hohes Bildrauschen

Test: Ricoh WG-4 GPS (Digitalkamera)

CHIP Online

  • Excerpt: Fazit: Die Ricoh WG-4 GPS punktet im Test mit solider Ausstattung und flottem Autofokus. Die Bildqualität der Outdoor-Kamera kann bei Tageslicht gefallen, rauscht allerdings stets deutlich. Die Makro-LED-Leuchte ist aufgrund ihrer kurzen Reichweite eher als Gimmick zu betrachten.
  • Pros: Auflösung bei Tageslicht, GPS und Kompass, Autofokus flott, Robustes Gehäuse
  • Cons: Bildqualität bei Schwachlicht, Serienaufnahme träge, Rauschen, Farbsäume
