Here’s one for you guys out there who live high paced action packed lives. The Ricoh WG-M1 Adventure camera keeps up with the demands and the challenges of intense sports and recreation. If you’re like me, you’d rather leave your camera at home when you go on your outdoor adventures for fear of getting the camera wet or breaking it if ever you drop it.
What makes this camera so different from the Go Pro and other cameras?
Well, let’s break it down into its features.
Of course we got to start of the list with this one since it is the main selling point of the camera. Much like many other outdoor cameras, the WG-M1 is dust proof, shock proof, and water proof, but it does out muscle other cameras when it comes to durability. The Ricoh WG-M1 can withstand water pressure of up to 32 feet, still being able to take shots within that depth. It can withstand falls to the ground from heights of up to 6 feet, and also can weather extreme temperature of down to -10 degrees Celsius.
The Ricoh WG-M1 stays true to the portability of outdoor cameras with just a 17×2.6×3.5 inch dimension and weighing at just 190g, it is perfectly sized for adventurers everywhere to bring around and mount on helmets and other frames. The camera also sports the appropriate colored for it to easily be spotted. It contains the 1.5 inch LCD lens as well for you to review the shots you just took.
Photo and video quality
The 14 mega pixel camera has a 16.6mm ultra wide angle camera which gives you a shooting field range of up to 160 degrees. When recording a video the field of vision is lowered to 137 degrees to adjust to the motion capturing nature of video. On the other hand the video has the capacity of shooting 1080p 30fps high definition shots and can also record up to 120fps to produce slow motion videos but you would need to sacrifice the resolution quality. Along with the video capture, a stereo microphone is also installed into the camera the capture the sounds.
The camera is WIFI capable making it easier to link to phones and PC’s.
Price and release date
The camera is slated to be released on October and would cost you around $300 although the camera is also available for pre-order now.
