Dubbed an all-weather extreme compact camera, the black Ricoh WG-6 is distinguished by its impressively rugged physical design, incorporation of useful shooting modes, and versatile imaging capabilities. Its durable exterior construction renders it waterproof to depths of 65.6', shockproof from heights of 6.6' as well as freezeproof, crushproof, dustproof, and resistant to chemical disinfection. In regard to imaging capabilities, the WG-6 features a 20MP BSI CMOS sensor, which enables high-resolution stills shooting, a sensitivity range from ISO 125-6400, and UHD 4K30 video recording as well as Movie SR+ and Movie SR stabilization modes to help steady video footage. A 5x optical zoom lens also contributes to this flexibility, and covers a wide-angle to telephoto 28-140mm equivalent focal length range. Additionally, the WG-6 incorporates a bright 3.0" 1.04m-dot AR-coated LCD monitor, an LED ring light to benefit photographing close-up subjects, and a high-accuracy GPS module to permit embedding location information within your image files.
This firmware update allows the WG-6 to be used as a webcam by connecting it to a computer for Full HD streaming. Plus, unlike in many traditional webcams, the wide-angle and telephoto functions of the camera can also be used. Additionally, this update enables you to share fine details of small objects by combining the LED ring light of the camera with the macro shooting function, allowing images to be captured from as close as 0.4" away. Supported apps for this capability include Zoom, Skype, Microsoft Teams, Google Meet, Cisco WebEx, and Facebook Messenger. Also, to enable the camera to be used with a tripod with this added ability, the optional accessory extension adapter TE-2 is required.
