Ricoh announces availability of PENTAX WG-90 waterproof digital compact camera

Now marketed under PENTAX brand, WG series joins other dustproof, waterproof and weather-resistant products

PARSIPPANY, N.J., Jan. 25, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Ricoh Imaging Americas Corporation today announced the PENTAX WG-90 digital camera will be available for purchase in early February. The WG series all-weather adventure cameras – known for their rugged chassis, plus waterproof and shock-resistant features – are now offered under the PENTAX brand which is regarded industry-wide for developing dustproof, waterproof and weather-resistant products.

The PENTAX WG-90 is a waterproof digital compact camera with a lightweight body that features a high-performance, five-times optical zoom lens with a focal-length coverage from 5mm to 25mm (equivalent to approx. 28mm to 140mm in the 35mm format). Its back-illuminated, 16-megapixel CMOS image sensor and high-performance imaging engine deliver a top sensitivity of ISO 6400 and produce super-highresolution images.

The PENTAX WG-90 assures outstanding reliability and operability even under harsh conditions where ordinary compact cameras and smartphones may be unusable. Its outdoor-friendly monitor swiftly optimizes the image brightness level to improve the visibility of a scene in bright outdoor locations. It also features a built-in ring light with adjustable illumination levels that powers the PENTAX-original Digital Microscope mode, allowing the user to capture clear, vivid images of a microscopic world normally undetectable to the naked eye. The PENTAX WG-90 can be used for a variety of scenes and subjects, from casual snapshots to outdoor and underwater photography, and even in specialized worksite applications.

The PENTAX WG-90 is designed to be waterproof down to a depth of 46 feet (14 meters), shockproof against a fall from a height of five feet (1.6 meters), and freeze-proof against temperatures as low as 14°F (-10°C).
