Detailed features of Ricoh Pentax WG-10.
Despite its compact, lightweight body, the WG-10 offers outstanding basic specifications to perform superbly and dependably under demanding outdoor conditions: waterproof to a depth of 10 meters and for up to two hours of continuous operation; shock resistant against a fall from a height of 1.5 meters; and cold resistant against temperatures as low as –10°C. It also features a host of advanced, creative functions, such as the PENTAX-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-10 is fully equipped to accommodate a broad range of applications, from outdoor shooting to everyday snapshots and business use.
5X optical zoom lens with 28mm wide-angle coverage. Within its compact body, the Ricoh Pentax WG-10 features a five-times optical zoom lens with a zoom 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 snapshots of breathtaking scenery, to family/group gatherings and telephoto images.
Large, 2.7-inch LCD monitor. The Ricoh Pentax WG-10 comes equipped with a large, 2.7-inch color LCD monitor with horizontally extended 16:9 proportions and approximately 230,000 dots. The PENTAX-original AR (Anti-Reflection) coating minimizes annoying glare and reflections to assure a sharp, clear on-screen image even under harsh sunshine.
HD movie recording. The WG-10’s HD movie recording function captures high-quality movie clips (1280 x 720 pixels, 16:9 proportions, 30 frames per second) with great ease. 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 devices.
Digital Microscope mode for microscopic observation. The Ricoh Pentax WG-10 features an innovative Digital Microscope mode, which magnifies the subject on the LCD monitor for the observation and photography of a microscopic world often unnoticeable with 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.
