Pentax and Ricoh Digital Cameras
The Pentax brand is now owned by Ricoh as Pentax Ricoh imaging. All the digital compact cameras will be branded Ricoh in due course. For now, the excellent WG action cameras and the MX-1 are still branded as Pentax.
The Pentax WGs are designed for the most adventurous of photographers. You can throw waterfalls, frigid ice and searing desert sands at any of these cameras and get consistently excellent photographs every time. Waterproof to 10m, shock proof from 1.5m and freezproof to -20, the WG is the action man's, or lady's, choice of camera.
If you are into street photography then the Ricoh GR is the definitive camera of this genre. Discrete styling, snap focus and fast operation make this the only choice if you are serious about working the light on the streets.
