Ricoh has announced a new consumer lifeproof compact in the shape of the Ricoh PX. The compact is both water- and shock-resistant, and strong consumer specification.

The Ricoh PX will be available at the start of next month with an RRP of £179.99. For more information, visit Ricoh online.

    Hmm …another compact camera with 16 megapixels squeezed into a small sensor.Surely its about time manufacturers stop this megapixel madness and concentrate on improving image quality,ISO etc in compacts.It would be interesting to see when it comes if image quality is worth cramming 16 million pixels on a compact sensor.
