Ricoh WG-6 PDF User Manual
Did you lose or misplace the instruction manual that came with your Ricoh WG-6? It happens all too easily, but fortunately Ricoh makes a soft copy available that you can browse through online, print out, or download (see the pdf file below). It is certainly good practice to carefully familiarize oneself with the many different functionalities and options that the WG-6 offers, and the official user manual is without doubt an authoritative and comprehensive source of respective information.
That said, the instruction booklet can be a dry read, so that a dedicated camera guide book from a professional photographer that illustrates the camera's core functions in a real life photography context can be a very helpful complement. Yes, getting one of these camera guides (see here at amazon) would involve an additional expense, but if that book helps to exploit the camera's potential to the full, the (small) additional investment may well be worth it.
Also, you might want to check out the video tutorial on the Ricoh WG-6 below.

This fixed lens compact camera was revealed to the public on February 21st, 2019, which means that, as of today, the camera is 1372 days old (young?). Given that the WG-6 is a relatively recent model, it forms part of the current Ricoh product line-up.
