Ricoh WG-M2 Overview

  • 1Description

Equipped with an impressive 204° ultra-wide-angle lens and built to stand up to nature's fury, the orange Ricoh WG-M2 Action Cam is a compact, go-anywhere camera ready to capture all of the action in Ultra HD 4K quality at 30 fps. With the WG-M2, no separate camera housing is required to prepare for rough adventures, as the body is shock-resistant from drops up to 6.5', waterproof to depths of 65' for up to two hours, and operable in freezing temperatures down to 14°F. All that is needed for protection is to attach one of the two included lens protectors, with one specifically designed for underwater use.

Besides 4K, the camera's 1/2.3" CMOS sensor supports 1080p up to 60 fps and 720p up to 240 fps, with the latter ideal for creating super slow-motion effects in post. Additionally, the camera takes 8MP stills in single-shot or in burst at approximately 8 fps for 10 frames. You can choose to capture your video and photos using the entire 204° angle of view of the lens, or use a narrower (but still wide-angle) 150° angle of view. A Video Capture Orientation Correction setting is available that lets you rotate the capture image in 90° increments to help adjust for the mounting position of the camera, and help to maintain a level horizon.

Because no underwater housing is required, the WG-M2 operation is made easy by the large control buttons and 1.5" LCD monitor. It also means that clear audio can be recorded as it will be unimpeded by a housing. In addition to on-camera control and monitoring, you can also use the camera's built-in Wi-Fi to remotely monitor and control the camera from a mobile device running the Ricoh Image Sync app. For power, the camera includes a rechargeable D-LI68 type lithium-ion battery that provides around 80 minutes of continuous 4K recording.

    Ricoh WG-M2 Reviews

    WG-M2 Action Camera Kit (Orange) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'd difinitely recommend this camera to a friend! I used the camera for the first time Saturday august 26, 2017 on a whitewater rafting trip, the camera is fantastic. I showed video clips to my friends on my website and my phone and they raved how clear and beautiful the video was. Do not worry that the camera has no zoom feature, the camera focuses very well up close and far, the best feature of the camera is no matter how you hold the camera upside down or side ways it will always show the video correctly, straight ahead! great action camera! the normal camera view is already very wide, don't really need to use extra wide view.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! Bought it on my way to NY store this past Wednesday. Also there are 36 thumbs down on one of the reviews here by a buyer name Dave. It makes you wonder why Go Pro gets the loving like iPhone does. Or maybe competitors hire armies of trolls to thumb it down.

    Can the Ricoh WG-M2 be used as a dash cam?
    Asked by: Anonymous
    You could put this Action Camera on a dashboard using B&H #RIOCM1473, which is the Suction Cup Mount for WG-Series Cameras. However you probably would want to select an option from our wide variety of Dash Cameras instead. Here is a link to that section on our website.

    What is the construction quality?
    Asked by: Moshe H.
    The construction is quite robust and this camera is ruggedly built to withstand actively rough environments and handling. Please understand that this camera has been discontinued and is no longer available.With the WG-M2, no separate camera housing is required to prepare for rough adventures, as the body is shock-resistant from drops up to 6.5', waterproof to depths of 65' for up to two hours, and operable in freezing temperatures down to 14F. All that is needed for protection is to attach one of the two included lens protectors, with one specifically designed for underwater use.Consider a similar camera from Olympus:Olympus Stylus Tough TG-Tracker Action Camera (Green) B&H # OLTGTRACKERG

    Hello! I can connect to micro hdmi output on a tape recorder or 4K monitor (and watch 4K)?
    Asked by: Pedro D.
    Since details are not in yet, we offer the opinion that the WG-M2 can be hooked up to a 4K TV and that it probably offers a clean HDMI out for external recording. Since no tape recorders can record 4K, you would use a digital recorder such as the Atomos Ninja Assassin 4K HDMI Recorder and 7 Monitor.
