Overall Review

Ricoh Pentax WG III is one of those rugged build cameras that owe a long history to the company. The camera can be availed in simpler version and also in GPS version. This camera is Pentax's 15th generation waterproof model. The camera does have a very unusual design but undoubtedly, it does makes it the all weather. Both the version, standard and GPS are almost alike each other but there are three major differences.
