Description

Tough and versatile, the Ricoh WG-80 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-80 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-80 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. Featuring a 16MP 1/2.3″ BSI CMOS sensor, the WG-80 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.

Features

Tough body construction

The WG-80 is designed for all shooting conditions. It features underwater performance to depths of 45’ for up to 2 hours of continuous shooting, shockproof against falls from a height of 5.2’, freezeproof to 14F and is crushproof against weights up to 220lbf.

High resolution with all the must-have features

With a high-performance image processing engine and a back-illuminated CMOS sensor boasting high optical efficiency and an effective 16 megapixel, the WG-80 takes low-noise photos with a wide dynamic range that look beautiful even as prints.

Digital microscope mode

This allows for super macro shooting which standard cameras or smartphones cannot. Six LED Macro Lights are positioned around the lens to provide bright, uniform illumination on a subject. Recording image size can be selected from 12M, 5M, 4M, and 2M in 16:9 aspect

High accuracy face detection

When the high-speed Face Detection Function is turned ON, the WG-80 can capture up to 32 people’s faces in focus in approximately 0.03 seconds. It automatically sets the focus (Face Detection AF) and compensates the exposure (Face Detection AE)

Underwater shooting modes

Optimize color, contrast, and white balance settings to deliver clearer, more color-accurate imagery when working in underwater conditions.
