Ricoh WG4
Outstanding waterproof performance.
By Digital Admin, Last updated on: 7/26/2014

The WG-4 officially drops the Pentax name for point-and-shoots, but there's not too much else that's new about this camera. The 2014 model offers the same sensor and lens, though there's a few additional modes that allow for manually adjusting more settings. Perhaps more exciting than the mediocre update is the addition of accessories that will allow the WG4 to be used more like a GoPro, with a new handlebar mount, adhesive mount and suction cup mount for easier capture of action video. There's no word yet on an official availability date.
