The colourful and rugged Ricoh PX Series

Ricoh will launch its PX Series camera in late June. The company describes the PX Series as being 'adventure proof': it will be waterproof to 3m and shockproof up to 1.5m. Additionally, it will be dustproof, dirt-proof and sand-proof. The best part is it will have a recommended retail price of just $299.

The Ricoh PX Series will have a scratch-resistant 2.7in screen, a 16-megapixel CCD sensor and a 5x optical zoom lens with a range of 28-140mm. It will feature similar technology to Ricoh's CX Series cameras for processing images, as well as offering a virtual boost to the zoom, allowing users to capture photos up to 280mm.

Other features of the PX Series include a start-up time of only 1.4sec, auto scene selection, subject tracking and face recognition focusing, and a range of creative filters.

The PX Series of cameras will allow for personalisation, too, as Ricoh will have a range of different colour protective sleeves for the cameras, including pink, yellow, blue, brown and white.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
