Ricoh Imaging is pleased to announce our new WG Series camera the WG-50. The RICOH WG series is well known for its tough design which can be used under harsh conditions. With the RICOH WG-50, we achieved a waterproof performance down to 14m, and a shock proof against falls from a height of 1.6m. The RICOH WG-50 also features a freeze proof design to withstand temperatures as low as -10 , and is crushproof against weights up to 100kgf (kilogram force). With newly added Outdoor View Setting mode, a mode which instantantly changes the brightness of the LCD, the WG-50 is far more suitable with outdoor activity then any other previous WG model.

Big mistake. I didn't use it much until we took my mom to NYC. My wife and I took pictures both with the camera and out phones (Droid Turbo 2), and my mom also used this camera when her batteries went out. The pictures were mostly all terrible. The colors are OK, but most of the pictures are out of focus. I tried auto settings, pre-built modes, and custom settings with no luck. Pictures were taken in all times of day, and amount of sun or darkness was not a factor. It was always poor quality.
The next trip out was a hiking adventure in the woods on a cloudy day. Those pictures are also extremely blurry, or with only some of the image in focus while the entire background is fuzzy.
I have included a few pictures that we happen to have taken with our phones and the camera at the same time to show a comparison of image clarity. The lack of focus in the Ricoh is astonishing compared to the camera in the phone. The only reason I buy a real camera is for high quality photos without the risk of breaking my primary communication device. I don't need it to upload images to the internet or get GPS signals. I just want good looking pictures. Is that too much to ask?
Since most of my photos are taken outs, I found the default exposure settings resulted in overexposed photos. Once I found how to adjust the EV setting, that problem was fixed. I'm still disappointed in the quality of the underwater photos--they are too washed out. I'm still trying to get used to the field covered by the lens. There is no viewfinder and the screen is difficult those in sunlight and underwater. I'm sure with more use, these issues can be managed.
Be sure to read the online manual. I learned about the very useful "green button" there.
