Touchscreen on the Ricoh WG-6?

The rear monitor on the Ricoh WG-6 is not touch sensitive. All interactions with the camera's firmware, thus, have to be entered through buttons and dials on the camera body. While this method of operating a camera might not be as intuitive as a touch interface and requires the photographer to memorize the functions of the external controls, it avoids accidental setting changes from unitentional contacts with the screen.

In terms of size and resolution, the rear LCD of the Ricoh WG-6 measures 3.0 inches and offers a resolution of 1,040,000 dots.
