Ricoh G600 water and dust-resistant 5x zoom digital camera
Ricoh has launched the G600, a new water and dust-resistant digital camera. The Ricoh G600 is smaller and lighter yet it still passes Ricoh‘s shock resistance test for a 1.5 m fall, a test that conforms to US Department of Defense standards. In addition to the 5x optical wide-angle zoom lens (equivalent to 28-140 mm for a 35 mm camera), the G600 continues to provide the same strong set of features as previous models, such as a 1 cm macro function and a ﬂash range of 10 m. It is perfect for customers who want to take pictures in a variety of outdoor activities, such as marine sports, mountain climbing, and ﬁshing. The large high-deﬁnition 2.7-inch LCD enables accurate photography by making the picture display easier to see outdoors.
When Ricoh G600 camera is connected to a personal computer via a USB cable, it is recognized as an external storage device, so images in the camera can be transferred to the computer without using special software. The large-capacity lithium ion battery gives long battery life for approximately 360 shots (CIPA standard). If the battery runs out, readily available AAA size batteries can be used instead. Ricoh G600 measures 116.5 x 68.0 × 32.0 mm and weigh 260g only.
