Ryobi Tek4 RP4200 8MP Digital Camera Review

Ryobi RP4200 Digital Camera Review

The RP4200 Tek4 4V 8MP Digital Camera is a semi-compact camera that comes with a convenient carry pouch that can be placed on a standard belt. It is quite rugged-looking and the buttons are oversized and easily activated with gloved hands. We tested this out thoroughly, feeling that a jobsite camera should include this feature lest it demands special treatment. The included 1GB SD card fits easily into the left side of the camera and the entire chamber is sealed with a rubber gasket affixed to the hinged door. The camera does include 64MB of internal memory – plenty of room for at least a dozen high-resolution photos.

Ryobi’s new Tek4 line of 4V lithium-ion products spans a range from measurement to safety to portable power backup. All tools share the same 4V rechargeable power source and sport an industrial look with Ryobi’s new signature green color adorning each of the dark-gray colored tools as trim. Since all of the new Tek4 tools use the same li-ion 4V battery (AP4001), delivering over 200 charges and longer-life than what you can get with standard Alkalines.
