Pentax WG-90 rugged compact set to launch
Ricoh has announced the WG-90, an update to its WG series of rugged cameras.
The WG-90 is built around a 16MP Type 1/2.3 (6.17 x 4.55mm) BSI CMOS sensor, and features a 28mm to 140mm equivalent 5x optical zoom lens with integrated ring light.
As you'd expect, it's pretty rugged and durable, and features water resistance down to a depth of 14m, shockproof against a fall from a height of 1.6m, and freeze-proof against temperatures as low as –10°C.
The WG-90 is available in two new colors: blue and "Classic" black, and is now branded as a Pentax. The switch in branding, according to Ricoh, was to capitalise on Pentax's reputation for, "developing dustproof, waterproof and weather-resistant products."
No local pricing or availability has been confirmed yet, but it's expected to be available globally in 2024. Keep an eye on the Pentax Australia website for more.
