Ricoh waterproof, dirt-resistant PX camera

Posted in Cameras by Conner Flynn on June 9th, 2011

Looking for a camera that can handle your adventurous lifestyle? The waterproof, shockproof and dust-resistant PX might be your thing. It packs a 16-megapixel CCD sensor along with a 5x optical wide zoom lens and is capable of booting up in just 1.4 seconds. The device also supports subject-tracking and face-priority auto-focus features and a bunch of shooting modes like: toy camera, soft-focus and high-contrast black and white, to name a few.

Ricoh says that the PX can survive drops from an altitude of up to five feet, remain waterproof at depths of about ten feet, and is impermeable to dust, sand and dirt. It also has a 2.7-inch, scratch-resistant LCD on back.

Protective silicon sleeves are available in five colors. It will arrive this month, for $300 AUD (about $317).
