Ricoh Imaging | RICOH WG-5 GPS GUNMETAL **

Superior image depiction under extreme conditions. The new WG-5 GPS.

Optimal for capturing night scenes, underwater scenes, and fast moving subjects. Equipped with a high-performance lens with a maximum aperture 2.0.

The camera has superior brightness with the folded optic zoom lens and is equipped with a high-performance 4.0x optical zoom lens of maximum aperture 2.0. Since the lens is bright, the sensitivity is suppressed even when shooting with the same shutter speed and allows recording in high image quality in dark scenes.


High Sensitivity Backside Illumination CMOS Image Sensor

Equipped with a backside illuminated 1/2.3 CMOS image sensor with excellent light receiving efficiency. Offers images with low noise and superior resolution with high definition of approximately 16,000,000 effective pixels.


A tough model that withstands the harshest conditions. Waterproof to a depth of 14 m and shockproof up to 2.2 m

Waterproof: Conforms to the IPX8, JIS protection level 8

Dustproof: Conforms to the IP6X, JIS protection level 6

Shockproof: Measured using RICOH IMAGING in-house testing standards (against a fall from a height of 2.2 meters, onto a surface of 5cm-thick plywood), conforming to Method 516.5-Shock of the MIL-Standard 810F

Freezeproof: When the temperature of the use environment drops, the number of available shots will decrease

Crushproof: Following RICOH IMAGING testing standards


Easily shootable “Digital Microscope Mode”.
A microscopic world, invisible to the naked eye

6 LEDs are installed on the lens circumference.
The subject is lit brightly so you can shoot images without worrying about the shadow of the camera and capture microscopic worlds easily. Also supports movies.


Equipped with an electromagnetic compass optimal for outdoor situations and GPS of the camera that records the location

You can display the electromagnetic compass on the LCD monitor and check the latitude, longitude, and atmospheric pressure of the current location. Equipped with a GPS function that records the location information on the shooting data.

*If GPS location information cannot be checked due to use conditions, the information is not included on the data.

Newly developed underwater mode 

White balance optimization suppresses the bluishness often found in underwater shots, with the result being more natural colors for your underwater photographs. There is also a new function for taking two consecutive underwater shots with the flash on and off.
