Ricoh Imaging Americas Corporation has announced the launch of the new Ricoh WG-30W. Building on the heritage of the amazing adventure-proof cameras in the WG series, the WG-30W comes equipped with built-in Wi-Fi connectivity and advanced smartphone support functions so one can easily browse through and download their adventures to share with family and friends. Designed to capture outdoor activities effortlessly, the WG-30W has a durable construction and a variety of outstanding features that make it ideal for those with an active lifestyle.
The WG-30W is outfitted with a new state-of-the-art, back-illuminated CMOS sensor and 16 effective megapixels. This rugged camera assures brilliant images with low noise, even in dimly lit situations. In keeping with the tradition of the WG line, this new addition is lightweight and compact, yet it is tough enough to perform under a variety of outdoor conditions. The solid, airtight body is not only waterproof to an impressive depth of approximately 12 metres, but also shockproof from a height of 1.5 metres, crushproof against weights up to 100 kgf (kilogram force), and coldproof to temperatures as frigid as -10°C. This new model includes the WG original Digital Microscope mode, allowing the user to capture even the slightest detail, like a pebble in a mountain stream, while six Macro lights positioned around the lens allow the subject to be more illuminated.
Thanks to its Full HD movie recording, the user is able to capture high-quality, extended movie clips at a frame rate of 30 frames per second while its enhanced underwater mode achieves better imagery for those hard to capture underwater shots.
The WG-30W comes available in two striking colours, Carbon Grey and Flame Orange and has 10 optional accessories available including a handlebar mount, a helmet mount, and a magnet mount.
Take your adventures to the next level with the WG-30W.

The WG-30W will be available at retailers nationwide in December 2014 for a suggested retail price of $319.99.
