The RICOH WG series is well known for its tough design, but with the RICOH WG-50 we achieved a waterproof performance down to 14m, and shock proof against falls from height of 1.6m. Featuring a 16MP 1/2.3" CMOS sensor, the WG-50 is capable of recording high-resolution stills and Full HD 1080p video. The sensor also affords a sensitivity range of ISO 125-6400, for working in a variety of lighting conditions, and a continuous shooting rate of 10 fps to suit photographing moving subjects.  

Spanning wide-angle to telephoto focal lengths, the 5x optical zoom lens covers a 28-140mm equivalent range to suit photographing a wide array of subject types. Its optical design features five aspherical elements for notable sharpness with controlled distortion, and Pixel Track SR (Shake Reduction) and Digital SR both help to minimize the appearance of camera shake when shooting handheld.                                               

Six LED macro lights surround the lens to produce brighter, more even lighting when working with close-up subjects. Enhanced Digital Microscope mode enables close focusing to 0.4". Benefitting working with the rear 2.7" 230k-dot LCD monitor, an Outdoor View Setting mode automatically boosts the screen's brightness when working in bright, sunlit conditions for greater visibility.

Included D-LI92 rechargeable lithium-ion battery provides approximately 300 shots per charge. A nine-point autofocus system provides quick and accurate focusing performance and is also capable of detecting subject's faces using Smile Capture, Blink Detection, Self Portrait Assist, Self Portrait Assist + Smile Capture, and Pet Detection settings. The processing engine contributes to a fast shutter lag time of 0.008 sec. and a startup time of 1.5 sec.

Interval shooting modes allow you to record a series of exposures at pre-determined intervals for producing time-lapse imagery. Digital Filter: B&W/Sepia, Toy Camera, Retro, Color, Extract Color, Color Emphasis, High Contrast, Starburst, Soft, Fish-eye, Brightness, and Miniature Filter.
