According to Ricoh, the new Caplio 500G features a stronger camera cone in order to withstand falls from up to one metre. Ricoh also claims that in addition to being able to take photos in the rain or snow, the new Caplio is able to take underwater images to depths of up to one metre, as it surpasses JIS (Japanese industry standards) protection grade seven. It also features a dust resistance grading of JIS 6.

Other features include a 3x wide-zoom (28 – 85 mm equivalent), a ‘high-capacity’ flash which Ricoh claims has a luminosity range of 10 metres for wide-angle images and 6.5 metres in telephoto mode, and an anti-blur mode to enable the camera to shoot at faster shutter speeds. A camera ‘memo’ function allows you to attach location information to photographic data.

Ricoh says this camera’s 1.2 second start-up time and 0.10 second focus and shoot time means it is specifically designed to capture all the high-speed action of outdoor adventures.

The camera comes with a lithium-ion battery and is also compatible with AA batteries and an AC adapter. The camera also offers PictBridge (to print pictures directly from the camera without needing a PC).

The Caplio 500G will be available from August this year.

RRP: $1099
