The carbon gray WG-30W Digital Camera from Ricoh is a compact, durable point-and-shoot featuring a 16MP 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 sensor combined with a newly designed image processor enables low-light sensitivity to ISO 6400 and continuous full-resolution shooting up to 1.08 fps and 10 fps continuous high speed shooting at lower resolutions. New to WG series is built-in Wi-Fi connectivity for wireless image transfer and remote control functions from your smart device.
A built-in 5x optical zoom lens provides a 35mm-equivalent focal length of 28-140mm to suit working in wide-angle and telephoto perspectives. Triple anti-shake protection minimizes the appearance of camera blur when photographing and recording video in difficult lighting conditions. High-speed video capture enables the creation of slow-motion videos and micro-HDMI port allows output of Full HD content to HD TVs and other compatible devices.
The rugged design elements of the WG-30W enable its use in conditions that would otherwise make it impossible to shoot including underwater to a depth of 40' and in temperatures as low as 14ºF. The camera can also withstand drops from up to 5' and pressure up to 220 lbf. It is also dustproof and offers anti-reflection protection on its 2.7" 230k-dot LCD monitor.
A highlight of its unique form factor are the 6 LEDs surrounding the lens which provide direct illumination when using the camera's enhanced Digital Microscope mode. This mode enables close focusing to 0.4". The LEDs also serve when shooting self-portraits and as a general illumination tool. A built-in flash unit is also supported as is a front-face clock, face detection technology, smile capture, blink detection and interval shooting. Several scene modes make it easy to capture sharp and color balanced photos in tough lighting including Underwater mode, Night Scene mode and Surf & Snow mode.
