Ricoh G600

Those who live life on the edge, who love the great outdoors and love to test themselves are never satisfied with apparatus that is not time tested. Those who love to go deep sea diving, rock climbing and indulge in such extreme sports have to be extremely careful also about the equipment they use, contrary to their images of carefree bravado. Each portion of their equipment has to be weatherproof, waterproof and tough. So why should they carry a camera that is any less? In fact, tough cameras were made for those who demand that little extra toughness out of whatever they use. For instance, the Ricoh G600 was made entirely for the great outdoors, coming from a manufacturer that brings out quality niche cameras. The G600 is a 10mp and 5x optical zoom tough camera.

Design and Functioning

A shock resistant structure and stronger camera cone create a robust bodied G600, which is able to withstand falls from 1.5 m onto 26 different kinds of surfaces. The ?at design uses a non-protruding inner-zoom lens so that the lens does not extend out from the body regardless of whether the power is on or off. Its superior water and dust resistance plus even greater shock resistance make the Ricoh G600 ideal for hard outdoor use. The well thought out design and positioning of the large buttons make operation easy even with gloves on, such as while skiing. Since many would like to click the beautiful landscape pictures when they go to picturesque places, which would look excellent in wide angle shots, Ricoh equips this camera with a wide angle focal length of 28mm to 140mm. Dust resistance function of this camera satis?es JIS protection grade 6. Pictures can be taken in environments, such as the seashore, where there are high concentrations of sand or dust. The ?ash unit that this camera comes with has an effective range of up to 10 m for wide-angle and 6.5 m for telephoto. To add icing to the cake, there is also an accessory shoe where an external ?ash can be attached. Ricoh’s Skew correction mode can modify photographs taken at an angle so that they look as if they were shot from the front. This is a powerful tool for various situations, such as images shot for message boards and display panels. This camera contains 52MB of internal memory and is compatible with SD/SDHC cards.
