Review Date: August 18, 2015 I can recommend the Ricoh WG-M1: Yes | Price: $129.95 | Rating: 8 

Pros: Ergonomics, size, layout, weight, shape, waterproof out of the box
Cons: Interface, susceptability to flare and ghosting,

I'm still getting used to it, but it's a fun little camera. The interface is a bit confusing (but necessary due to the size and space for buttons.) The test videos I took show a proclivity for flares and ghosting (due to the ultra-wide angle.) The quality from them, otherwise, is suitable. They don't have the same dynamic range as video (and stills) from a DSLR, but that's a-okay given that this has a different purpose, market, and much smaller sensor.

It is about twice as large as I expected, but it's comfortable to hold in easy to use. I'm a big fan.
