Product Description


The WG-4 and WG-4 GPS offer outstanding waterproof performance - down to 45 feet underwater-and shock resistance against a fall from heights up to 6.5 feet. While inheriting the easy-to-hold, non-slip design of the previous lineup, they provide a choice of new body colors that stand out in the outdoors. They also feature 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).

Wow, I love this camera! Just returned from Bora Bora. I took over 500 amazing photos & video -- lagoons, mountains, people, etc. on land and underwater of sharks, stingrays, and even whales while snorkeling. The camera is super easy to use and the picture/video quality is fantastic, sharp, and crystal clear for day and night shoots. I have never owned a Ricoh/Pentax camera, so I was hesitant. I own a high quality Nikon DSLR. I also own an Olympus Tough waterproof camera that is about 5 years old. So, I figured it was time for an updated waterproof camera that had higher pixels and HD video. I was leaning toward buying another Olympus waterproof camera or even a Nikon waterproof camera since I am familiar and happy with these brands. However, I researched Nikon, Olympus, Canon, and Panasonic waterproof cameras. The other brands had a lot of complaints about leaks, fogging lenses, and poor picture/video quality, all of which surprised me (I never had a leak with my older Olympus). I couldn't be happier with my decision to buy the Ricoh WG-4 because the picture/video quality was excellent, it was so easy to use, and it had no leaks or fogging lens. I'm going to buy a second one for my daughter and son-in-law. It's also worth noting that the video is recorded in MP4 format which is much more universal and user-friendly than the formats used by some of the other brands. Often overlooked, I would also like to add that the user's manual is also excellent and easy to understand. I actually sat down one night for about an hour reading the manual cover to cover with the camera by my side so I could get full use out of the features, settings, etc. It's definitely worth a read. If there is one common complaint I have read about the camera, it is the short battery life. This is an easy fix.Read more ›

I have owned this camera for about two month now and tested underwater function during my vacation in caribbean.
Very high quality photo and durable casing design.
Battery life is much improved comparing my previous Pentax W90
The rubbery grip is very helpful under the water.
Highly recommended

I am a DSLR shooter and wanted something light weight and waterproof for a cruise I took this past summer. This camera fit the bill. I used this underwater and traveling for about a week in the Caribbean.

In Summary:
One of the best compact, underwater cameras on the market at the moment. Would rank image quality right up there with the Nikon AW1 at half the price. If you are in dire need of an underwater camera then this is a great choice, however if you are just looking for a good point-and-shoot then look elsewhere.

> The image quality is decent for the size and price (obviously don't expect DSLR like quality and clarity from a point-and-shoot camera).
> Plenty of image shooting modes (really, almost too many when you are trying to find a specific one in a hurry)
> Worked underwater every time without any issues
> Large aperture allows for somewhat decent low light shooting

- Accessories: there are some good ones (macro ring light), but they are expensive little add-ons that are easy to misplace
- IS is hit or miss
- Lots of manual functions for the more advanced shooter, but the menu system is cluttered and hard to navigate

< Slow to focus (I ended up missing a lot of shots because the camera couldn't focus fast enough and manual focus is just way to cumbersome to be practical).
< I wasn't impressed with the underwater images (slow focusing, poor contrast, over saturated) - for every 50 I took I maybe got one or two that were even usable

I bought the camera a month ago and am still learning all the features. It takes practice to take good photographs. I purchased the camera because I liked the close up features, specifically the light emitting diodes around the lens. This is only camera I know that has lights around the lense. A great idea. They work as advertised. I take a lot of close ups of aluminum parts. Unfortunately taking pictures of aluminum is like taking a picture of a mirror. The lights really stand out. Normally I can shoot from the side and try and get a reflection of a white sheet of paper. When taking close ups you typically do not have much depth of field. I am taking close up photographs of fractured surfaces. I think this camera really excels at taking pictures of flat objects like coins and stamps.

At work our parts are leak tested under water. I used the camera under water to photographs the bubbles. It takes practice but it worked.

The altitude works. I am still working on the GPS.

The worst feature is that you have to plug in the camera to charge the battery. The camera only comes with a 925 mAh battery. You can buy 1500 mAh batteries (Halcyon) from Amazon. You get 50% more run time! Amazon sells three 1500 mAh batteries with a charger and some stuff for only $20.

For the price I think a memory should be included. They are pretty cheap. The camera does have some internal memory so you can take a few pictures with out memory card.

It comes with a clip to attach the camera to your belt, purse, or what ever. The camera does not have a cover for the lense. The camera is rated as being drop proof. Having a camera swing on your belt or back pack seems like an opportunity to always smak the camera into things.
