Sealed against water, dust, dirt and shock, the Ricoh PX distances itself from its rivals with a stylish minimal design. What Digital Camera investigates whether the PX's images are just as easy on the eye...
Value and Verdict
Ricoh PX review – Value
While the PX may not be the cheapest waterproof compact currently available, its sub-£200 price tag does make it cheaper than a number of its immediate competitors. True, its waterproof capabilities are more limited than others, and there’s no freeze or crushproofing as there is with certain Olympus models, but the omission of these probably won’t concern those who simply want something a little more rugged than the norm.
Ricoh PX review – Verdict
The PX is priced and built well for a waterproof compact and it performs to a satisfactory standard in and out of the water, but image noise and the low quality of the camera’s LCD screen are the biggest downsides.
