Ricoh WG-M2 Overview

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.
