RICOH WG-50 Waterproof Digital Compact Camera Released


RICOH is launching the RICOH WG-50, new digital compact camera that features a lightweight body design and promises exceptional waterproof and shockproof performance.

Developed as standard-class waterproof digital compact cameras, the RICOH WG-50 provide dependable operation and operability in demanding outdoor conditions: the WG-50 designed to be waterproof to a depth of 14 meters, shockproof against falls from a height of 1.6 meters, and freeze-proof to temperatures as low as -10C. They also provide a range of features to facilitate all types of still-image and movie shooting, including approximately 16.0 effective megapixels and Full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels) movie recording capability. It also comes equipped with an outdoor-friendly LCD monitor whose brightness level can be instantly adjusted to the lighting level of a shooting situation.

A range of optional camera-mounting accessories allowing the user to fix the camera on a bicycle or watercraft. Using the camera's creative shooting functions, such as interval shooting and Full HD movie recording, the user can capture unique images seen from a totally different angle or viewpoint.

The WG-50 come equipped with a back-illuminated CMOS image sensor. Coupled with a high-performance imaging engine, this image sensor delivers a top sensitivity of ISO 6400 and super-high-resolution images with approximately 16.0 effective megapixels.

The WG-50 feature a five-times optical zoom lens with a focal-length coverage from 5mm to 25mm (equivalent to approx. 28mm to 140mm in the 35mm format). They also provide other shooting functions, such as a macro mode to capture close-up images from a minimum focusing distance of a mere one centimeter; an Intelligent Zoom function to extend the zoom range to approximately 36 times (equivalent to 1008mm in the 35mm format) without compromising image quality; and an interval shooting mode, which comes in handy for fixed-point observation.

Specifically designed for underwater photography, the Underwater and Underwater Movie shooting modes are programmed to optimize color and contrast, based on the data of images actually captured under the water.

Six LED Macro Lights allow the WG-50 to provide uniform illumination on a subject when the Digital Microscope mode is selected.

The WG-50 provide Full HD movie recording employing the H.264 recording format. Users can capture movie clips (1920 x 1080 pixels, 16:9 proportions) at a frame rate of 30 frames per second. They also feature a high-speed camera function for slow-motion playback of captured movie clips, and an interval movie function. A micro-HDMI terminal (Type D) is also provided on the camera body.

The WG-50 come equipped 2.7-inch LCD monitor with horizontally extended 16:9 proportions and approximately 230,000 dots.
