  • 16MP 1/2.3" Backlit CMOS Sensor
  • Ricoh 4x Optical Zoom Lens
  • 25-100mm f/2-4.9 (35mm Equivalent)
  • Water, Dust, Crush, Shock, and Coldproof
  • 3.0" 460k-Dot LCD Monitor
  • Full HD 1080p Video Recording at 30 fps
  • Triple SR Image Stabilization System
  • Digital Microscope Mode & Built-In LEDs
  • ISO 6400 and Up to 14 fps Shooting
  • Shutter Priority and USER Shooting Modes

The silver Ricoh WG-4 Digital Camera is a compact, durable point-and-shoot featuring a 16 megapixel 1/2.3" backlit CMOS sensor and a waterproof, shockproof, crushproof, coldproof, and dustproof construction for recording both high-resolution still imagery and full HD 1080p movies in a wide variety of conditions. The combination of the sensor and new-generation image processor also avails notable low-light sensitivity to ISO 6400, continuous full-resolution shooting up to 1.5 fps, and 12-14 fps burst shooting at a lower resolution.

A built-in Ricoh 4x optical zoom lens provides a 35mm-equivalent focal length of 25-100mm to suit working in everyday shooting situations. A maximum aperture of f/2-4.9 benefits low-light use and complements the sensor-shift type Shake Reduction image stabilization system. This SR mechanism is further enhanced by Pixel Track and high ISO Shake Reduction to minimize the appearance of camera blur when photographing in difficult lighting conditions.

Rugged Design
The WG-4 revolves around its durable, weather-proof construction to enable its use in harsh and trying conditions:

  • Waterproof to 45.9'
  • Shockproof to 6.5'
  • Crushproof to 220 lbf
  • Coldproof to 14°F
  • Dustproof to JIS 6 standard
  • 16MP Backlit CMOS Sensor
    The 16 megapixel 1/2.3" backlit CMOS sensor, combined with a new-generation image processor, works to deliver high-resolution still imagery and full HD 1080p video at 30 fps. These two technologies also enable rich low-light quality and sensitivity to ISO 6400 as well as continuous shooting rates of 1.5 fps at full resolution or 12-14 fps at 4 or 5MP for up to 30 frames.

    Movies are recorded in the Internet-friendly MP4 format and utilize a built-in stereo microphone to deliver clear sound. High-speed movie recording is also possible up to 120 fps in the HD 720p format.
    Ricoh 4x Optical Zoom Lens and Shake Reduction
    The built-in 4x optical zoom lens provides a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 25-100mm, covering wide-angle to telephoto perspectives to suit working in a wide variety of conditions. Four aspherical elements are incorporated into the lens design to minimize chromatic aberrations and distortion throughout the zoom range and to produce sharp, clear imagery. An SP (Super Protection) coating has also been applied to the front lens element to offer greater protection and simplify cleaning of the lens. Additionally, a maximum aperture of f/2-4.9 benefits working in low-light conditions.

    Also contributing to enhanced use in dim lighting, sensor-shift type Shake Reduction image stabilization works to minimize the appearance of camera shake to better enable working with longer focal lengths and slower shutter speeds. This image stabilization system is further refined by way of digital Pixel Track and high ISO Shake Reduction modes to further alleviate camera blur.
    Other Camera Features
  • Six LED macro lights surround the lens to produce brighter, more even lighting when working with close-up subjects.
  • A 3.0" 460k-dot LCD monitor provides a large, bright means for live view monitoring, image review, and menu navigation. Its wide viewing angle of 170° supports easier use from both high and low working angles.
  • A 9-point contrast detection focusing system provides quick and accurate focusing performance and is also capable of detecting subject's faces using Smile Capture, Blink Detection, Self Portrait Assist, Self Portrait Assist + Smile Capture, and Pet Recognition settings.
  • The processing engine contributes to a fast shutter lag time of 0.016 sec. and a startup time of 1.8 sec.
  • Interval shooting modes allow you to record a series of exposures at pre-determined intervals for producing time-lapse imagery.
  • In-camera HDR imaging combines three captured images at once and blends them to realize extended shadow and highlight detail. Additionally, an HDR playback filter can be used to simulate the HDR effect.
  • Including Shutter Priority and USER modes, 29 different shooting modes are available to creatively enhance the look and feel of imagery.
  • A series of playback modes, effects, and filters can be used to further refine the look of images post-capture: Image Rotation, Small Face Filter, Ink Rubbing Filter, Collage, Digital Filter (B&W/Sepia, Toy Camera, Retro, Color, Extract Color, Color Emphasis, High Contrast, Starburst, Soft, Fish-eye, Digital filters (playback): (B&W, Sepia, Toy Camera, Retro, Color, Color Extract, Color Emphasis, High Contrast, Starburst, Soft, Fisheye, Brightness, Miniature), HDR Filter, Original Frame, Movie Edit, Red-Eye Edit, Resize, and Cropping.

          Comments about WG-4 Digital Camera (Silver):

          This camera flooded less than three weeks after I bought it. Ricoh acknowledged it was defective and sent me a new one. After a few days this one stopped functioning, and now won't even turn on. B&H refused to give me a refund, and I'm waiting to hear if Ricoh will give my money back. I do not want another replacement; I could never trust this camera on a trip and certainly would never recommend that anyone purchase it. I think B&H should stop selling this clearly defective product.

          Tough reliable camera

          By Average cam knowledge

          from Baltimore, MD

          Comments about WG-4 Digital Camera (Lime Yellow):

          Bought this camera for business use because I'm picky and also clumbsy. It has all the features that allow you to manipulate the mechanical elements of the camera (shutter speed aperature etc...) with a compact yet rugged design. Interface takes a little bit of getting used to but overall a very good model! Wonder what the GPS model is like!

          Comments about WG-4 Digital Camera (Silver):

          I love the size and shape of this camera. I used this camping/fishing last weekend and it was nice not having to worry about it taking any rain. It seemed to take great pictures as well. I haven't been able to play too much with the features yet but I look forward to bringing this along on a trip to Germany and many kayaking trip in the future.

          Used in Bimini for 5 days snorkeling, beach, pool, etc. with great results! Loved the photos and the camera worked great! Took it to beach in Ft. Walton ... in ocean for less than hour strap came loose from buckle and camera dropped. Still have the carabineer and strap but buckle, camera and pictures are in the Gulf of Mexico.
          Highly recommend using a different strap.

            I wanted this camera mainly for underwater for an upcoming trip.
            I tried it out over the weekend and was pleased with the quality of the image. The only drawback, no protective case came with this camera.
            I do enjoy the photos!
