WG-20 Digital Camera Adventure Kit, Includes Digital Camera, Jupiter III+ Binocular, Power Adapter, Case, Strap, Columbia River Eat'N Tool

The Ricoh WG-20 Digital Camera Adventure Kit is designed for the all-around intrepid explorer, and combines a durable point-and-shoot digital camera, an 8x22 binocular, and a multi-tool to benefit all aspects of a day outdoors.

This waterproof digital compact camera is designed so that anyone can capture outdoor activities more casually, effortlessly and without worries. Despite its compact, lightweight body, the WG-20 offers outstanding basic specifications that outperform ordinary digital cameras and smartphones under demanding outdoor conditions. It is waterproof to a depth of 10 metres; shock resistant against a fall from a height of 1.5 metres; and cold resistant against temperatures as low as -10-degrees C. It also features a host of advanced creative functions, including the RICOH IMAGING-original Digital Microscope mode that magnifies the subject and captures a microscopic world, often unnoticeable with the naked eye, in eye-catching images. The WG-20 is fully equipped to accommodate a broad range of applications, from outdoor shooting to everyday snapshots and business use.

The WG-20's airtight body is not only waterproof to a depth of 10 metres and for up to two hours of continuous operation (equivalent to IPX8 or JIS Class 8), but also shock-resistant against a fall from a height of 1.5 meters, dustproof (equivalent to IPX6 or JIS Class 6), cold-resistant against temperatures as low as -10-degrees C, and crushproof against weights up to 100kgf (kilogram force). Thanks to its dependable, heavy-duty construction, it performs superbly and dependably in harsh, demanding outdoor conditions.

The WG-20 features the innovative Digital Microscope mode, which magnifies the subject on the LCD monitor for the observation and photography of a microscopic world unseen by the naked eye. Thanks to five LED Macro Lights positioned around the circumference of the lens barrel, the subject is illuminated more brightly and uniformly than in ambient light to facilitate macro shooting. In order to minimize camera shake and subject shake, its instant illumination enhance function allows for the use of a higher shutter speed by automatically raising the illumination level of the Macro Lights at the moment of shutter release. A macro stand is also included as a standard accessory to maintain a minimum focusing distance of one centimeter to the subject during extended observation and shooting.

High-quality images made possible by the latest super-resolution technology - In addition to super-high resolution assured by approximately 14.0 effective megapixels and a state-of-the-art imaging engine, the WG-20 also offers advanced image processing functions made possible by the latest super-resolution technology to deliver sharp, clear, high-resolution images. Because of this, the user can effortlessly produce sharp, high-resolution prints with well-depicted details, even when images are enlarged to poster size.

HD movie recording - The WG-20's HD movie recording function makes it easy to capture high-quality movie clips (1280 x 720 pixels, 16:9 proportions, 30 frames per second). It also offers a variety of movie editing functions, such as extracting a still image from movie data and inserting titles at the beginning and end of a movie clip. In addition, a micro-HDMI terminal (Type D) is provided on the camera body for simultaneous output of HD movie clips and sound to external audio-visual devices.

Large, 2.7-inch LCD monitor - The WG-20 comes equipped with a large, 2.7-inch colour LCD monitor with horizontally extended 16:9 proportions and approximately 230,000 dots. The RICOH IMAGING-original AR (Anti-Reflection) coating minimizes annoying glare and reflections to assure a sharp, clear on-screen images even under the harsh sunshine often encountered in outdoor shooting.

5X optical zoom lens with 28mm wide-angle coverage - Within its compact body, the WG-20 features a five-times optical zoom lens with a focal-length coverage from 5mm to 25mm (equivalent to approx. 28mm wide angle to approx. 140mm medium telephoto in the 35mm format). This versatile zoom lens comes in handy for a wide variety of scenes and subjects, from wide-angle photos of breathtaking scenery to family/group snapshots, and even dramatic telephoto images of distant subjects.

Triple anti-shake protection to compensate different types of shake (1)Pixel Track SR mechanism - When recording still images, this sophisticated shake-reduction mechanism effectively compensates for camera shake by digitally processing affected images.

Digital SR mode - When the camera detects low-lighting conditions in still-image shooting, it automatically raises the sensitivity as high as ISO 6400, making it possible to use a higher shutter speed to effectively minimize the adverse effects of camera shake and subject shake under poor lighting conditions.

Movie SR mode - During movie recording, this digital shake-reduction mode effectively compensates for the misalignment of images caused by camera shake through the use of exclusive software to produce beautiful, blur-free movie clips.
