Ricoh G600

Ricoh has announced a new 10 megapixel, rugged point and shoot camera, the G600. The G600 is a small and light point and shoot camera that is ruggedized to easily withstand a 1.5 m fall, which is tough enough for the US Department of Defense. The G600 features a 5x optical wide-angle zoom lens (equivalent to 28-140 mm for a 35 mm camera). The G600 also has a 1 cm macro function and a flash range of 10 m. It operates at ISOs up to 3200 and features a 2.7″ LCD display. Finally, the G600 is weatherproof and can even shoot underwater up to 1m.
