RICOH WG series is well known for its tough design which can be used under harsh conditions. Ricoh WG-50 is a new waterproof, shockproof, freeze proof and crushproof tough compact camera that can be used in all conditions.
RICOH WG-50 provides performance and outstanding operability in outdoor conditions. It also provides a range of features to facilitate all types of still-image shooting and movie recording. The brightness of the LCD can be increased by up to two steps to make dark areas of the display easier to see in sunlight, or lowered by up to two steps to reduce glare.
Image sensor delivers with top sensitivity of ISO 6400, high resolution images with 16.0 MP. Advanced image processing functions to assure sharp, clear, high-resolution images. Hand-held Night Snap mode captures several images of the night-time scene from which produces a single, blur-free image. White-balance optimisation in Landscape shooting to reproduce colors.
5-times optical zoom lens with a focal-length coverage from 5mm to 25mm (equivalent to approx. 28mm to 140mm in the 35mm format) to accommodate a wide range of scenes and subjects. Macro mode to capture dramatic close-up images from up to one centimetre. Intelligent Zoom function extends zoom range to 36 times (equivalent to 1008mm in the 35mm format) without compromising image quality.
Pixel Track SR mechanism: advanced shake-reduction compensates camera shake. Digital SR mode by low-lighting conditions in still-image shooting camera raises the sensitivity up to as high as ISO 6400 to be able to use higher shutter speed and minimise the adverse effect of camera shake and subject shake when dealing with poor lighting conditions. During movie recording Movie Shake Reduction mode compensates the misalignment of images caused by camera shake for blur-free movie clips.
Underwater mode with white balance optimized making colors appear more natural by adding reds. In Underwater mode the Flash Off and Flash On option allows the user to capture two images with a single shutter release — one without flash and one with flash.
