Capture all of life’s adventures with the compact orange WG-M1 Action Camera from Ricoh. Ruggedly designed, the camera is waterproof at depths of 32′, shockproof at drops up to 6.5′, cold-resistant at temperatures down to 14°F, and dustproof. It features a 1/2.3″ CMOS sensor that captures up to 14-Megapixel still images and Full HD 1080p video at 30 fps to microSD/SDHC memory cards. Sporting an ultra-wide angle lens with 160° viewing angle in photo mode and up to 137° in video mode, the WG-M1 is ready to capture a wide array of indoor, outdoor, and below-the-surface activities.
Inheriting the design theme from the waterproof WG series, the WG-M1 offers a heavy-duty polycarbonate plastic construction with large buttons and controls for ease of use – even when wearing gloves. It comes equipped with a 1.5″ color LCD screen for real-time image monitoring and has a 1/4″-20 tripod socket on the bottom for attachment to mounting accessories. You’ll also find a USB port for data transfer and charging the lithium-ion battery pack, as well as a micro HDMI port capable of simultaneous output of video clips with sound to external devices.
Featuring built-in Wi-Fi connectivity, you can use the dedicated app to remotely control the camera and monitor videos and photos from your mobile device. You can also browse and download images and videos onto your mobile device to then share with family and friends on your favorite social media sites. The camera comes with a flat adhesive mount, carabiner strap, lens protector, underwater lens protector, battery, USB cable, and power adapter.
- 14-Megapixel Still Images
- The WG-M1 delivers high-resolution still images thanks to the 1/2.3″ CMOS sensor with an effective resolution of 14-Megapixels. It also provides high-speed continuous shooting of approximately 10 images per second.
- Full HD Video Recording
- The camera captures Full HD (1920×1080) videos at 30 fps in the H.264 recording format. It can also record 720p video at 60 fps. It also provides a host of creative tools, including “Motion detection,” which automatically starts recording a movie when the camera detects a moving object within the image field; “Loop recording,” which keeps recording movies while creating new files at five- or ten-minute intervals; “High-speed Movie,” which records 848×480 resolution movies at 120 fps specifically for slow-motion playback; and “Time Lapse Movie,” which produces time-compressed movies using a time-lapse recording technique.
Note: The 120 fps recording mode is fixed at 60 seconds.
- Ultra-Wide Angle Lens with Selectable Angle of Views
- The camera offers a choice of four angles of view, from ultra wide to more narrow, depending on the scene you are capturing. You can choose from Wide (160° in photo, 137° in video), Medium, Narrow, and Underwater. The underwater mode has an angle of field of approximately 97° in photo mode.
Note: The Medium and Narrow settings are selectable only with a still image size of 10MP or 14MP, or 1920×1080 video.
