Manufacturer's Description

The all-weather adventure camera.

A chassis rugged enough for the harshest conditions, from beneath the waves to the tops of the wintry mountains.


A rugged chassis you can rely on in the harshest conditions.
Exceptional 14 m water proofing and 1.6 m shock proofing.

With features that include uncompromising water proofing—good for two hours of continuous use at a depth of 14 m—freeze proofing* that ensures operation at temperatures of −10 °C, and crush proofing capable of withstanding forces of 100 kgf, this rugged camera can be used in all conditions.



• Water proofing: IPX8, JIS Class 8 • Dust proofing: IP6X, JIS Class 6 • Shock proofing: Able to withstand drops of 1.6 m/5.2 ft. onto a 5 cm/2 in. thick surface using MIL-Standard 810F Method 516.5–Shock adapted to in-house standards • Crush proofing: Tested according to RICOH standards

* Battery capacity drops with ambient temperature, reducing the number of pictures that can be taken on a single charge.

Outdoor View Setting

The brightness of the LCD monitor can readily be adapted to changes in ambient lighting conditions for ease of viewing and an improved shooting experience. Brightness can be increased by up to two steps to make dark areas of the display easier to see in sunlight, or lowered by up to two steps to reduce glare for night photography.
