RICOH WG-M2 rugged action camera announced

Ricoh has announced WG-M2 shockproof and waterproof action camera with an ultra-wide 204-degree lens that captures 4K Ultra-HD video. It is 40 percent smaller and more lightweight than previous models in Ricoh’s acclaimed WG series,

Ricoh WG-M2 is waterproof with depth of upto 65 feet, shock-resistant against a fall from 6.5 feet and can even able to operate in temperatures as low as -10°C. It now offers video-orientation feature that ensures video is recorded upright if the camera is mounted sideways or even upside down. The WG-M2 is controllable via Wi-Fi with a smartphone or tablet using the free Ricoh ImageSync app.  A new start-stop control mechanism vibrates to confirm when recording is started or stopped, ensuring that important moments are never missed, and a large, 1.5-inch color LCD monitor makes it possible to view the action during recording or to playback video on the go.

The WG-M2’s 4K sensor captures 4K Ultra-HD video at 30fps, as well as full 1080p HD up to 60fps and 720p HD video up to 120fps, as well as capturing still images up to 8MP. The camera is equipped with seven Video Effect modes that add distinctive visual effects, plus an array of simple video-editing functions that make it easy to edit videos in-camera. It even comes with a wide array of mounts and other accessories that allow the camera to be readily mounted on helmets, handlebars and more for use during sports and outdoor activities.

Jim Malcolm, president, Ricoh Imaging Americas Corporation said,The WG-M2 is one of the smallest and lightest cameras in the market. It’s more than an action camera.  The WG-M2 is compact and durable; with a large color LCD to frame and enjoy top-quality images and 4K Ultra-HD video.  It also comes with a host of features that make the camera extremely easy to use, which is critical when you’re capturing life.

The Ricoh WG-M2 camera will be available late April 2016 at www.ricohimaging.com and retail outlets nationwide for a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $299.95.
