The Ricoh WG-6 is a top-of-the-line waterproof digital compact camera designed to be waterproof to a depth of 20 meters, shockproof against a fall from heights of 2.1 meters and crushproof against weights of up to 100kgf (kilogram force). Its also cold-resistant to temperatures as low as -10°C.
High resolution image sensor and 4K video
Equipped with a state-of-the-art back-illuminated, 20 megapixel CMOS image sensor and a high-performance imaging processor, it delivers super-high-resolution still images and 4K-resolution movie clips (3840 x 2160 pixels, 30 fps).
Innovative features help you get the best shot of the subject. For example the Handheld Night Snap mode, which automatically captures several images of the same nighttime scene and produces a single blur-free composite image from them.
And if you are shooting video in HD video resolution (720p), you can activate the new Movie SR+ mode which generates a shake-reduction effect similar to the one created by a gimbal unit, to assure high-quality movie shooting with more active, fast-action outdoor activities.
Built-in LED ring light
Thanks to its 5x zoom lens with an angle-of-view equivalent to approximately 28-140 mm for full-frame and a minimum focusing distance of only one centimeter, the WG-6 covers a wide range of applications, from eye-catching close-ups to sweeping landscapes.
Positioned around the lens is a multi-application ring light, featuring six LED bulbs which provide a bright, uniform illumination on the subject. Thanks to a choice of lighting patterns, it can also be used to illuminate the subject more three-dimensionally.
GPS and compass records positioning data
The Ricoh WG-6 comes equipped with a large, high-resolution 3.0-inch high-resolution LCD monitor (1,040,000 dots). Its anti-reflection coating minimizes annoying glare and reflections to assure a sharp, clear on-screen image even in the harsh sunshine often encountered in outdoor shooting.
The camera also incorporates such outdoor-friendly features as a GPS module to record position data and travel log data onto captured images, and an electronic compass to enhance operability in the field.
