Developed as the high-end model of the renewed WG-series lineup, that model assures exceptional waterproof and shock-resistant performance and high-quality shooting in the outdoors and in the water.
The WG-4 offers outstanding waterproof performance — down to 14 meters underwater—and shock resistance against a fall from heights up to two meters. While inheriting the easy-to-hold, non-slip design of the previous lineup, it provides a choice of new body colors that stand out in the outdoors. It also features such state-of-the-art developments as a large-aperture, four-times optical zoom lens (with the maximum aperture of F2.0 at the wide-angle end) and a high-sensitivity, back-illuminated CMOS image sensor to deliver high-quality, low-noise images — even in the water, at night and at indoor sports events where the subject is poorly illuminated. Other significant improvements have been made to upgrade the camera’s operation and performance, including faster AF operation in macro shooting, improved image quality in underwater shooting, and the addition of the USER mode for instant recall of the user’s favorite settings. An array of optional accessories are available to accommodate active outdoor photography.
For instance, an adhesive mount and a handlebar mount are designed to securely fix the camera for hands-free shooting, allowing the photographer to take advantage of such movie recording features as a dual shake reduction system and Full HD movie recording (1920 x 1080 pixels).
