The Ricoh WG-60 is tough compact camera designed to be waterproof, crushproof, coldproof, and dustproof.

Launched in late 2018, this new model adds an outdoor brightness setting to the LCD monitor to make viewing easier in strong sunlight. Also, native support for Flashair Wi-Fi cards has been added. The WG-60 is otherwise similar to the WG-50.

The WG-60 will start shipping on November 15, 2018 at a US MSRP of $279.95.
