The new Ricoh WG-M1 Action Camera!
GoPro has been the go to name for Action cameras since the phenomenon hit the market and Ricoh have set the challenge to try and draw some attention away from this huge brand with the announcement of their WG-M1.
This rugged looking camera packs a 14 Megapixel sensor and a wide-angle 180 degree f/2.8 lens to capture extensive Full HD Video in all lighting conditions. High speed photos can also be managed at up 10 10 frames per second and in conditions such as 10metres below water and in temperatures as low as minus 10 degrees Celsius. This camera wont be wrapped up in cotton wool, it’s made for action so Ricoh have also managed to get it to withstand up to 2 metres of shockproof resistance so if you drop it the camera will keep your footage safe.
The camera also has Wi-Fi connectivity that allows you to share your videos or images with your smartphone or tablet device allowing for upload to social media channels such as Facebook, YouTube or Instagram. With Wi-Fi on board it also enables you to pair this camera with an associated app which then allows you to use your phone as a remote to the camera so you can shoot with the WG-M1 from a distance.
