    Ricoh's G600 and Kodak's disposable camera: separated at birth?

    There is definitely a likeness there.

Unless your sister is a sasquatch, because this is an outdoorsman’s camera. It’s the kind of thing you’d take on safari, because it’s ruggedized and shock-proof. Or on a… Read More

  • Ricoh Drops Two New Ruggedized Wireless Cameras
