Ricoh 4K action camera
The Ricoh WG-M2 action cam records movies at the amazingly high rate of approximately 100 megabits per second. Recording movies at this average bit rate of approximately 100Mbps provides more image data to each frame, allowing you to produce beautiful, exciting and lively works of art. The camera signals the start and end of movie recording by camera body vibrations, eliminating the worry of missed recording opportunities. The WG-M2’s Movie SR (Shake Reduction) function minimizes camera shake when recording a movie on the move. It allows you to capture sharp, blur-free movies even under demanding, blur-prone conditions. Thanks to its heavy-duty, housing-free design and wind suppression mode, the WG-M2 records crystal-clear sound even outdoors. The 4k action camera also records stereo sound to recreate the true-to-life ambience of memorable scenes.
Waterproof action camera
Despite its compact design, the 4K action camera is shockproof against a fall from two meters, freeze-proof against temperatures down to -10°C, and waterproof to a depth of 20 meters without a housing. It also provides simplified operation and the recording of crystal-clear stereo sound. The WG-M2’s new underwater white-balance mode faithfully reproduces the clear, vibrant atmosphere of underwater scenes, by eliminating reddish casts in shallows waters near the surface or bluish and greenish casts in deep waters around the depth of 15 meters. Waterproof performance equivalent to IPX8 or JIS Class 8; Dustproof performance equivalent to IP6X or JIS Class 6; Shockproof performance measured under Ricoh original testing standards (from a height of two meters, onto a surface of 5cm-thick plywood), conforming to Method 516.5-Shock of the MIL-Standard 810F.
