RICOH WG-6: A self-contained digital camera featuring a reliable, waterproof body that can be photographed at a depth of 20 meters with a bright multi-application ring
Designed as the leading model of the durable RICOH WG series, the Ricoh WG-6 Orange digital compact camera provides a range of new design features, including the bright ring unit— convenient for close-ups — and 4K movie recording, within the most reliable and waterproof body in the history of the WG series.
This top-notch, waterproof, digital compact camera was designed to be waterproof at a depth of 20 meters, resistant against vibration and falls from a height of 2.1 meters, as well as resistant to low temperatures up to -10°C. Equipped with the latest technology, CMOS image sensor, with approximately 20 active megapixels and high performance imaging engine, offers ultra-high resolution images and movies with 4Kresolution. In addition, it incorporates outdoor-friendly photography features such as a GPS unit to record location and travel calendar data on photos, as well as an electronic compass for enhanced outdoor functionality. Positioned around the lens, the multi-application bright ring features six lamps and provides uniform lighting on the subject. Thanks to the choice of lighting with a combination of patterns these lamps can also be used as a lens to illuminate the subject more 3D.
Durable construction for underwater photography up to 20 meters deep, for 2 consecutive hours.
WG's compact and airtight body is not only waterproof to a depth of up to 20 meters – the longest depth in the history of the WG series – and for two hours of continuous operation (equivalent to IPX8 or JISClass8 specifications), but also, shock and fall resistant from a height of up to 2.1 metres, dust resistant (equivalent to IPX6 or JISClass6 specifications), resistant to low temperatures up to -10°C , and resistant to break-offs from a weight of up to 100kgf(kilogramforce). Thanks to this very robust construction, the WG-6 delivers excellent and reliable in harsh and demanding outdoor conditions.
High resolution and quality photos
Combining the state-of-the-art image sensor, backlight, CMOS (which excels in high sensitivity and low noise and ensures rapid reading of signals from image data) with the high-performance imaging engine, the WG-6 offers top-notch ISO6400 sensitivity and ultra-high-definition images with approximately 20.0 active megapixels. In addition, it provides advanced processing functions, thanks to the latest ultra-resolution technology, to ensure clear, clear high-resolution images. It also provides innovative features such as HandheldNightSnap, which automatically captures many images of the same night scene and composes them producing a unique blur-free image.
Capture video at 4K resolution for extended high-quality movie downloads
The WG-6 provides video capture at 4K resolution in H.264 format, allowing the user to capture high-quality extended movieclips (3840 x2160 pixels, at a frame rate of 30). In addition to the conventional MovieSR vibration reduction feature,* it also features the new MoviesR+ function,* which creates a vibration reduction effect similar to that produced by a gimgal to ensure high-quality movie downloads in more intense and fast outdoor activities.
* When any of these functions are enabled, the viewing angle decreases. MoviesR+ can be used to capture with smaller pixels than the FullHD (1920 x1080 pixels) format.
Lens with optical zoom5x and wide-angle coverage 28mm
Thanks to the lens with optical zoom5x, with a viewing angle covering from 5mm to 25mm (equivalent to about 28mm to 140mm in 35mm format) and with a minimum focus distance of about one centimetre, the WG-6 covers a wide range of applications, from stunning close-ups to sweeping landscapes. IntelligentZoom expands the zoom range about 40.5 times without compromising image quality, while IntervalShooting makes fixed-point photography simple and easy.
Six Marco lamps, multi-application, serve close-ups
Positioned around the lens circumference, the WG-6's six LEDMacro lamps allow the user to choose a higher shutter speed to minimize camera movement and theme movement in macro photography and close-ups. The brightness level can be increased up to 10 times over a conventional unit. In addition, they allow selective lighting, with which the user can activate only horizontal or vertical lamps to illuminate his subject more 3D and emphasize his sensitive contours.
3.0-inch LCD display, with wide frame, for wide viewing angle
The WG-6 comes equipped with a large, high-resolution, high-resolution LCD screen with 3:2 ratios and about 1,040,000 dots. The AR(Anti-Reflection) coating minimizes disturbing reflections and ensures clear and clear images on the screen even under the intense sunlight often seen in outdoor photography. In addition, it has the OutdoorView setting, which allows easy adjustment of screen brightness depending on changes in ambient lighting conditions, for optimal visibility of the image on the screen.
Enhanced GPS functions for easier data capture
The WG-6 has a built-in GPS unit, which automatically records location and calendar data in photos and adjusts the built-in clock to local time. This unit can be activated in a single motion to receive signals from the satellite system of Japan Michibiki and Russia GLONASS (global navigation satellite system), in addition to the American GPS system. By connecting it to the satellite-based augmentation system, the user can even record accurate location data in a variety of locations and times. When photographing indoors, GPSLock allows the user to record GPS data in their photos using the most recent location data they have received.
