Meet the RICOH WG-M2 The latest action camera from Ricoh, featuring a fully waterproof, shock-resistant body, a 204 degree ultra-wide angle lens and 4K movie recording – the ideal companion for outdoor adventures.


RICOH IMAGING EUROPE S.A.S is pleased to announce the launch of the RICOH WG-M2 4K action camera. If you are looking for an ultra-rugged outdoor companion to capture adventures on-land and underwater, this new action camera provides a number of advanced features, including 4K video recording and the use of an ultra-wide angle lens to capture dramatic and detailed movies. All housed within a compact, lightweight, waterproof body designed to be extremely shock-resistant. Designed for outdoor enthusiasts, adventurers and photographers who want to capture, and share their experiences, the RICOH WG-M2 is the latest camera to join the popular WG-series and builds on the performance from RICOH’s original action camera, the RICOH WG-M1 (launched in October 2014). The RICOH WG-M2 performs brilliantly in challenging outdoor conditions, being waterproof to a depth of 20 metres, shock-resistant from a height of two metres and cold-resistant to temperatures as low as -10°C. Your only problem will be keeping up! Featuring 4K video recording, a first for RICOH digital cameras, coupled with an ultra-wide angle lens at approximately 204°, it captures dynamic, high-resolution and high bit-rate videos from a unique perspective. This rugged, yet compact camera, also offers a host of features, including: a vibration function to indicate the start and end of video recording; LCD auto-orientation* to record video clips in an upright position regardless of how the camera’s mounted (vertical or even upside-down); seven image effect modes to customise the videos you capture; and an array of video editing functions including capturing a still image from a video and an option to divide the video after shooting. With a selection of mounts available for a range of activities, the RICOH WG-M2 is the ideal partner for outdoor and action photography. With the wireless connection you can even share images and videos of your latest sporting, underwater or outdoor activities straight to your social network or website. You’ll soon be the envy of your friends with unprecedented, eye-catching images and video. * This function may not be usable in certain shooting modes and/or certain settings.
