There is nothing more annoying than heading out onto the trails and being preoccupied with concern about your camera. DSLR’s are expensive pieces of equipment, so while they’re ideal for bringing with you on long trips or short hikes, they are fragile enough that one day of bad weather can put them out of commission. Or at least, most all camera’s except for Ricoh’s newly unveiled K-70 DSLR.
You can take this camera out into the snow, near the surf, or into the desert without worry of damage thanks to the body’s dust proof and weather resistant build. Not only is the body built for rugged conditions, but it is compatible with a line of Pentax weather resistant lenses as well. As far as the specs on this camera, it doesn’t leave a whole lot to be desired. With a 24.24 megapixel sensor with an antialiasing filter, WiFi compatibility, and a 921 dot display photographers will be able to take great images no matter where they are. Prices are expected to start at $650. [Purchase]
