Take your outdoor and adventure photography to the next level with the WG-80 Digital Camera in orange from Ricoh. This camera is designed for every imaginable outdoor environment, including underwater photography at depths of 46' for as long as two hours. Great for construction worksites, it has a rugged and durable body that is impact, freeze, and shockproof.
In addition to its rugged design, the WG-80 has a CMOS back-illuminated image sensor with high optical efficiency and approximately 16 effective megapixels. It also features a high-performance imaging engine, a 5x optical zoom lens, and a large, wide-frame LCD monitor. This camera offers enhanced underwater modes for still photography and video and its built-in ring light has adjustable illumination levels. Turn on the six LED macro lights around the lens barrel to create a three-dimensional effect or expand your range of shooting expressions.
The solid, airtight body of the WG-80 is not only waterproof down to a depth of 46 feet for up to two hours of continuous operation (equivalent to IPX 8 or JIS Class 8), but is also shockproof against falls from a height of 5 feet, dustproof (equivalent to IPX 6 or JIS Class 6), freeze-proof to temperatures as low as -10°C / 14°F, and crushproof against weights up to 100kgf (kilogram force). Thanks to this heavy-duty construction, the camera performs dependably even in harsh, demanding outdoor conditions.
The WG-80 is equipped with a back-illuminated CMOS image sensor, which assures high-sensitivity, low-noise characteristics, and high-speed readout of image data signals. Coupled with a high-performance imaging engine, this image sensor delivers a top sensitivity of ISO 6400 and super-high-resolution images with approximately 16 effective megapixels. It has advanced image-processing functions, made possible by the latest super-resolution technology, to assure sharp, clear, high-resolution images. It even offers such innovative features as Handheld Night Snap mode, which automatically captures several images of the same nighttime scene to produce a single, blur-free, composite image from them.
Ideally positioned around the circumference of the lens barrel for macro shooting, six LED macro lights allow the WG-80 to provide bright, uniform illumination on a subject when the Digital Microscope mode is selected. Providing the maximum illumination intensity (almost twice that of its predecessor) and a five-step intensity adjustment function, this six-light unit enables the photographer to effortlessly optimize the close-range flash photography based on the subject or creative intention. To minimize camera shake and subject shake, the Instant Illumination Enhance function allows for the use of a higher shutter speed by automatically raising the discharge level of the macro lights at the moment of shutter release. The macro lights also provide other useful functions, such as a Self-Portrait Assist mode, which uses the blink of an LED lamp to check if the subject's face has been safely captured within the picture frame, and the LED Lighting mode, which uses the macro lights to light up in the dark.
