Developed as the high-end model of the renewed WG-series lineup, the Ricoh WG-4 GPS assures exceptional waterproof and shock-resistant performance and high-quality shooting in the outdoors and in the water.
The Ricoh WG-4 GPS comes equipped with a sophisticated GPS module, which automatically records position data and travel log data onto captured images and adjusts the built-in clock to local time. Its pressure sensor and digital compass also allow the user to check the pressure, altitude/underwater depth and direction of a shooting location on the camera’s LCD monitor.
Thanks to its fully watertight construction, the Ricoh WG-4 GPS assures outstanding waterproof performance to a depth of 14 metres, and for up to two hours of continuous operation (equivalent to IPX8 or JIS Class 8). It is also designed to be shock-resistant against a fall from a height of two metres, dustproof (equivalent to IPX6 or JIS Class 6), cold-resistant against temperatures as low as –10°C, and crushproof against weights up to 100kgf (kilogram force).
The Ricoh WG-4 GPS's dual shake reduction system combines an image-sensor-shift-type SR (Shake Reduction) mechanism with a Digital SR mode to more effectively compensate for the adverse effects of camera shake and subject shake in shake-prone conditions, such as when photographing a poorly lit subject using ambient light only, or when shooting sunset scenes.
The high-performance optical zoom lens offers a maximum aperture of F2.0 (at wide-angle end) to capture bright, clear images with minimal noise, even in dimly lit locations. With its four-times zoom coverage from 4.5mm to 18mm (equivalent to approx. 25mm wide angle to approx. 100mm medium telephoto in the 35mm format), this versatile zoom lens accommodates a wide range of applications.
The Ricoh WG-4 GPS features the innovative Digital Microscope mode, which magnifies the subject on the LCD monitor for the observation and photography of a microscopic world unseen by the naked eye. Thanks to six LED Macro Lights positioned around the circumference of the lens barrel, the subject is illuminated more brightly and uniformly than in ambient light to facilitate macro shooting. A macro stand is also included as a standard accessory to maintain a minimum focusing distance of 1cm to the subject during extended observation and shooting.
The Ricoh WG-4 GPS provides Full HD movie recording employing the H.264 recording format, allowing the user to capture high-quality, extended movie clips (1920 x 1080 pixels, 16:9 proportions) at a frame rate of 30 frames per second. It also features a high-speed camera function for slow-motion playback of captured movie clips and a fast-forward movie function to simplify creative movie techniques. A micro-HDMI terminal (Type D) is also provided on their camera body for simultaneous output of Full HD movie clips and sound.
