Superior Image Depiction Under Extreme Conditions
With the Ricoh WG-5 GPS Digital Camera, you can capture your most fearless adventures as it is dust, water, crush, shock, and coldproof. The impervious point-and-shoot features a 16 MP 1/2.3" backlit CMOS sensor for capturing both high-resolution still images and full 1080p HD movies in a wide array of conditions. The sensor and new-generation image processor combined also avails illustrious low-light sensitivity all the way to ISO 6400, continuous full-resolution images up to 1.5 frames per second, and 12-14 frames per second burst shooting using lower resolutions.
An integral Ricoh 4x optical zoom lens provides a 25 thru 100 mm 35mm-equivalent focal length to handle working in everyday shooting environments. A maximum f/2-4.9 apeture takes advantage of low-light and complements the sensor-shift type Shake Reducing image stabilization system. This SR device is further augmented by Pixel Track along with high ISO Shake Reduction to diminish the appearance of camera blur when shooting in difficult lighting situations.
Completing the rugged capabilities is an integral GPS module, which records location and travel log data automatically to the images' metadata and also presents positional information in real time on the rear mounted 3.0 inch 460k-dot LCD monitor. Also, a monochrome display on the front shows users some basic information and it has integral LEDs along with a digital microscope mode that provides exceptionally close focusing and image capture.
