  • Excerpt: If you're after a camera that'll survive some rough and tumble, the Ricoh WG-4 is built to shrug off plenty of abuse. It'll survive a 14-metre-deep dunk in the drink, a two-metre drop and -10-degree temperatures, plus it's crushproof to 100kg.

netzwelt
12 September 2014
  • Summary: 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

  • 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
