Product Features in Detail
Full HD movies (at 1280 x 960 pixels) are captured at 137-degree ultra-wide angle of view to record memorable scenes entirely.
Thanks to the rugged, housing-free design, the WG-M1 records true-to-life, unobstructed stereo sound.
Beautiful still images
Thanks to the combination of a bright F2.8 lens with a 160-degree maximum angle of view (at 4:3 aspect ratio and wide-angle setting) and approximately 14.0 effective megapixels, the WG-M1 delivers beautiful, high-resolution still images.
Color LCD monitor
The WG-M1’s LCD monitor lets you review recorded movies on the spot, while its ideal position facilitates image framing.
Large, easy-to-access control buttons
The WG-M1’s large control buttons provide easy access and flawless operation, even when wearing gloves.
Smartphone-support functions to capture decisive moments
Equipped with a Wi-Fi module, the WG-M1 lets you control shooting, playback and editing functions from a distance using your smartphone. Just install the dedicated application, you can even share your movies and still images with friends on the Internet.
Effortless underwater shooting without a housing
By simply mounting the included underwater lens protector on the airtight body, the WG-M1 assures outstanding waterproof performance to a depth of 32’/10 m., and for up to one hour 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 6’/2 m., dustproof (equivalent to JIS Class 6), and cold-resistant against temperatures as low as 14°F. All these features make the WG-M1 a truly dependable, heavy-duty action camera in harsh, demanding outdoor conditions. Since it doesn’t require a cumbersome housing to protect the body, the user can not only enjoy underwater movies and images more freely, but also record sounds more clearly without muffling. Measured under RICOH IMAGING-original testing standards (from a height of 6,5’/2 m., onto a surface of 2 inch-thick plywood), conforming to Method 516.5-Shock of the MIL-Standard 810F. When the image size of 848 x 480 pixels (at 120fps) is selected, sound cannot be recorded.
Functional, outdoor-oriented design
Inheriting the design theme of the waterproof WG series, the WG-M1 offers a functional, heavy-duty design perfect for active outdoor shooting. It comes equipped with a 1.5-inch color LCD monitor for easy confirmation of the image composition during shooting and quick review of recorded images and movies during playback. Its large control buttons facilitate camera operations — including instant switching between still-image and movie modes — even when the user is wearing gloves. It also features a tripod socket on the bottom for the direct attachment of various accessories. The WG-M1 offers a choice of two body colors: black and orange.
High-resolution still images captured by an ultra-wide-angle, 160-degree lens and approximately 14.0 effective megapixels
The WG-M1 delivers true-to-life, high-resolution still images, thanks to the combination of approximately 14.0 effective megapixels and a CMOS image sensor with outstanding high-sensitivity and low-noise characteristics and high-speed data readout. During still-image shooting, it offers a choice of four angle-of-view settings: Wide (160 degrees),* Medium,** Narrow** and Underwater. It also provides a high-speed continuous shooting mode to record a series of still images at a speed of approximately 10 images per second. * The angle of view may vary depending on the selected image size. The maximum angle of view in underwater still-image recording is approximately 97 degrees. ** The medium and narrow settings are selectable only when image size of 10M or 14M is selected.
Wireless LAN connection to support remote operation using smartphones
By installing a WG-M1-dedicated application in a smartphone or tablet computer, the user can perform various camera functions from a distance: confirm the status of a subject or scene, release the WG-M1’s shutter, and even check movie recordings in real time. The user can also browse and download images and movies recorded by the WG-M1 onto a smartphone or tablet computer for effortless editing using the tools provided by the application, then upload them to social networking and other websites to share them with friends.
Full HD movie recording with a selection of creative tools
The WG-M1 provides Full HD movie recording in the H.264 recording format, capturing high-quality, extended movie clips (1920 x 1080 pixels, 16:9 proportions) at a frame rate of 30 frames per second.Thanks to its digital shake reduction mode, the user is assured of flawless, blur-free movies, with a choice of four angle-of-view settings — Wide (approximately 137 degrees), Medium, Narrow and Underwater. It also provides a host of creative tools to simplify complex movie-recording techniques, 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 movies specifically for slow-motion playbacks; and “Time Lapse Movie,” which produces time-compressed movies using a time-lapse recording technique. In addition, a micro-HDMI terminal (type D) is provided on the camera body for the simultaneous output of movie clips and sound to external audio-visual devices. The maximum length of a single movie clip is 25 minutes. The angle of view may vary depending on the selected image size. The maximum angle of view in underwater movie recording is approximately 90 degrees. The medium and narrow settings are selectable only when the image size of 1920 x 1080 pixels (at 30fps) is selected. The image size is fixed at 848 x 480 pixels (at 120fps), while the recording duration is fixed at 60 seconds.
