We were excited when the Ricoh WG-30w was first announced, as this camera represented the start of a wireless-enabled lineup of Pentax/Ricoh outdoor camera models. The wireless functionality impressed us when it came to features and range, so our review was originally off to a great start.

If you're on a bit of a budget and are looking for a compact camera which is simple to use but has all the benefits of being rugged enough for your family holiday, then the Ricoh WG-30 Wi-fi is worthy of your consideration.

21 January 2015

The Ricoh WG-30 is a tough waterproof camera, with a number of useful features, most noticeably, the unique macro LED lights that surround the lens. However, the camera gives images with high levels of noise, and fairly low levels of detail, and whilst this is fairly typical for this class of...

Had camera for about a year everything fine. Rugged takes good photos. Took in pool in Mexico no more than 1 foot deep flooded camera no longer works out of warranty. Now a brick. I'll be lucky to get $20 on eBay. Water leaked into battery compartment. A LOT of water.

bought it for engine room photos at sea. worked very well, easy to use. not tried it in water yet

14 March 2017

One amazing little camera. I am completely satisfied with every single aspect. We got the best pictures for our underwater vacation

4 February 2017

A little heavy, but I've been happy with the pictures. The time it takes to power on or save is a little long. There is a dedicated mode button so you don't have to dig through menus, which was very important to me. Flash works well. I use it in the rain, but not underwater.

Was only. Waterproof for one holiday after that it ended up with water damage !!!

Great camera , great supplier well recommended

13 November 2016

I have owned two of these cameras previously and sadly lost them, so when I ordered this product I knew exactly what I was getting. Both the camera, and indeed the service were exactly as described, I am delighted with both scenarios.

Great little camera very rugged and good for all outdoor tasks. Used all the time within our area, we now have 5 of these camera and will be buying more as needed.

It leaks. It leaks. Don't buy. I treated myself to this expensive camera and went in the water both locks were locked and it leaks. The camera is no good. The company will not stand by this and fix it or send me another one.
