I think you did not really understand how to use the ISO dial. You should operate the dial with your right hand, while you are looking through the viewfinder. The changing ISO values are visible on the display. In that fashion, it is a very natural, simple and quick setup option. Using the dial looking from above on it, can be confusing and not feeling natural at all. If you use this camera on a regular base, you will find yourself doing adjustments almost automatically, all with your right hand, while not moving your eye off the viewfinder. Instead, being concentrated on finding the right composition.

I had two Ricoh WG-4, both leaked water within minutes in shallow water. If Ricoh did not change something fundamental on the design of the locking mechanism, I would not recommend this camera. The bad experience I had with the WG-4 almost ruined two of my holidays (in terms of photos). I never had issues with other brands/models (like Panasonic TF4 etc.)

I am a Fuji X-System owner and I am very pleased with the firmware upgrade policy of this company. I really think that this is an important step to improve overall customer experience of Fuji products, as it increases the valuable lifetime. And who is saying that Fuji should have brought those functions and features in the initial firmware release, should be aware that most of the Fuji users are very happy with the product they currently own. We bought the product with the functionality and quality it delivered at that time. And as DPR showed specifically on the X-T1 model, that this camera was always a great product (84% Gold rating). Many ideas and concepts did not exist, when the camera has been released and it is great to see, that new innovations get introduced in an existing product. There are so many new features (not only bug fixes), which Fuji introduces during the lifetime of a camera! Each time, it is like receiving a totally new product. What's wrong with that? I love it!

In reply to:

ghadiardja: Nicely done. I actually like how the light pollution adds a gradient of hues near the horizon. How did you prevent star trails shooting a 200 sec exposure? Is this a composite of multiple exposures?

Thank you. I used the iOptron SkyTracker, which allows much longer exposure times and also to close the lens for a sharper image and lower the ISO to lower the noise. But it requires to create a second exposure for the foreground, because the usage of the SkyTracker will result in a blurry foreground.

On article 2014-15 Waterproof Camera Roundup (255 comments in total)

I own the Ricoh WG-4 GPS and I must say that this camera is far from being waterproof. The locking mechanism is very loose and it does not seal properly. The camera is totally new, but already after a few days of using, it stopped working. Max. dive depth was 1m and I took care of my equipment. I had a Panasonic model before, which is after 3 years of heavy usage still working great (gave it to a friend). Also, the battery is not making reliable contact. The whole concept seems to me a design failure. I cannot recommend this camera. I will exchange it, when back home. Too bad, it ruined a part of my holidays...
