Ricoh WG-30w Review Posted
By PF Staff in Review Announcements on Dec 22, 2014
Several threads on our forum have mentioned The Camera Store's recent Youtube video, which lists the Pentax K-S1 as the worst camera of 2014. We are currently in the process of reviewing the K-S1, and while we might agree that it's the most pointless camera of 2014, it's certainly not the worst.

To sum it up, the WG-30w is a sandbox: a rebadged Pentax Optio WG-2 from early 2012, but with half the LCD resolution, launched to showcase a singular new feature. That feature is built-in Wi-Fi, which ironically works better than the O-FC1 FluCard in a Pentax DSLR.
