Tough and versatile, the orange Ricoh WG-70 is a compact, durable, and flexible point-and-shoot designed for everyday and extreme adventures alike. A reinforced physical construction renders it waterproof for depths up to 45.9' and shockproof from heights of 5.2', as well as freeze, crush, and dustproof. In regard to imaging capabilities, the WG-70 features a 16MP 1/2.3" back-illuminated CMOS sensor, which enables high-resolution stills shooting and Full HD 1080p video recording, as well as a sensitivity range up to ISO 6400 to suit working in a variety of situations. A 5x optical zoom lens also contributes to this flexibility, which covers a wide-angle to telephoto 28-140mm equivalent focal length range, and is complemented by Pixel Track, Movie, and Digital SR modes to help realize sharper imagery when shooting handheld. Additionally, the WG-70 also incorporates a 2.7" 230k-dot LCD monitor, which uses an Outdoor View Setting mode for improved visibility in bright lighting conditions, and six LED lights also surround the lens to help illuminate close-up subjects when working with the Digital Microscope mode.
The WG-70 is designed to withstand a wide variety of conditions, ranging from harsh climates to everyday mishaps:
Featuring a 16MP 1/2.3" BSI CMOS sensor, the WG-70 is capable of recording high-resolution stills and Full HD 1080p video to 30 fps. The sensor also affords a sensitivity range of ISO 125-6400, for working in a variety of lighting conditions, and its back-illuminated design helps to reduce noise for improved clarity and color fidelity. Also, a Handheld Night Snap mode can be used to automatically blend several images of the same scene into a single blur-free composite image for greater versatility when working in low light.
Spanning wide-angle to telephoto focal lengths, the 5x optical zoom lens covers a 28-140mm equivalent range to suit photographing a wide array of subject types. Its optical design features a series of aspherical elements for notable sharpness with controlled distortion, and Pixel Track SR (Shake Reduction), Movie SR, and Digital SR all help to minimize the appearance of camera shake when shooting handheld. For working with distant subjects, an Intelligent Zoom function can also be used to achieve an effective 36x zoom.
