Developed as the high-end model of the renewed WG-series lineup, that model assures exceptional waterproof and shock-resistant performance and high-quality shooting in the outdoors and in the water.
Heavy-duty construction for underwater shooting to 14 metres deep, and up to two continuous hours
Thanks to its fully watertight construction, the WG-4 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).**
All these features make it truly dependable, heavy-duty digital imaging partner in harsh, demanding outdoor conditions.
* Measured under RICOH IMAGING-original testing standards (from a height of 2.0 metres, onto a surface of 5cm-thick plywood), conforming to Method 516.5-Shock of the MIL-Standard 810F.
** Measured under RICOH IMAGING-original testing standards.
Exceptional image description, thanks to a large-aperture zoom lens and latest imaging technologies
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, from macro shooting of flowers to wide-angle photography of sweeping landscapes.
Thanks to the upgraded AF algorithm, the focusing speed in macro shooting has been greatly increased to facilitate close-up applications.
In the Underwater and Underwater Movie modes, the color rendition and contrast of a captured image are automatically optimized based on the original image data: Red tints and shades, which tend to be lost in underwater photography, are enhanced for true-to-life colour rendition, while the loss of contrast caused by the diffusion of light in the water is effectively compensated for sharper, clearer
