To add to the steadily growing list of action cams, the Ricoh WG-M1 Waterproof Action Camera takes underwater filming to the next level. With the popularity of the GoPro and similar products like camera goggles for snowboarders, it only makes sense that there would be something for underwater explorers, as well. Complete with a 14 megapixel CMOS sensor for high-res images, it's made with air-tight waterproof construction that allows for shooting at a depth of 33 feet for 1 hour, is able to withstand drops from up to 6 feet and is cold-resistant to sub-freezing temperatures of 14 degrees. That's sturdier than most humans. It also has a fast f/2.8 ultra-wide angle 160-degree lens, records in 1080p at 30 frames per second and, of course, has integrated Wi-Fi so you can post all your excursions online with the slightest of ease. The WG-M1 will be available online starting October 26.
