All-weather chassis
A sturdy chassis you can depend on in the toughest conditions, whether under water or in the rain. Waterproof to 20 m and shockproof to 2.1 m.

With features that include uncompromising waterproofing—good for two continuous hours of use at a depth of 20 m— shockproofing capable of withstanding drops of 2.1 m, freezeproofing * that ensures operation at temperatures of −10 °C, and crushproofing capable of withstanding forces of 100 kgf (kilogram force), this rugged camera can be used in all conditions.

*Battery capacity drops with ambient temperature, reducing the number of pictures that can be taken on a single charge.

• Waterproof : IPX8, JIS Class 8 • Dustproof : IP6X, JIS Class 6 • Shockproof : Able to withstand drops of 2.1 m, onto a 5 cm thick surface using MIL-Standard 810F Method 516.5–Shock adapted to in-house standards • Crushproof : Tested according to in-house standards

Dedicated Underwater mode.

White balance is optimized to suppress blue tints for underwater photos with natural-looking colors. Underwater Movie mode also applies this effect while filming high-resolution 4K movies.

* Available in Underwater mode.

 

Flash Off/Flash On, taking two pictures with single release

In this mode, the camera takes two pictures with a single press of the shutter button one with the flash off and the other with it on. Because there is no flash with the first picture to startle the fish, you can be sure that both the shot with the flash and the one without will turn out well.

Faster and easier to use design.

The new ADJ. button can be customized to quickly change and recall settings for faster operation when taking photos, you can change and recall settings for exposure compensation, image size, aspect ratio, ISO sensitivity, and white balance. Shooting mode, exposure compensation, and other settings can also be saved as “User Mode 1” (U1) or “User Mode 2” (U2) to be recalled quickly and easily, simply by rotating the mode dial.

High-performance GPS and an electronic compass.

Use GPS to record the current location with the image data whenever a picture is taken. In addition to GPS, the WG 6 also supports GLONASS and the Japanese Quasi-Zenith Satellite System (QZSS, also known as Michibiki). In addition, a satellite-based augmentation system (SBAS) is used for more reliable positioning with greater accuracy and reduced error. The data recorded with photographs can be used to view their location on a map or display your route on a computer, further enhancing the post-photography experience. Location data, the heading provided by the electronic compass, or the time (UTC) can also be imprinted on pictures in their lower right corners.

Outdoor View Setting

The brightness of the LCD monitor can readily be adapted dealing with changes in ambient lighting conditions for ease of viewing and an improved shooting experience. Brightness can be increased by up to two steps to make dark areas of the display easier to see in sunlight, or lowered by up to two steps to reduce glare for night photography.

FlashAir Functionality Improvement

TUse FlashAir * wireless-enabled SD memory cards to instantly transfer images to your smartphone or other devices on the spot. Wireless LAN can now be turned on and off from the camera, reducing the drain on the battery.

*Toshiba SD-UWA series W04 FlashAir™ SDHC/SDXC memory cards (available separately from third-party suppliers; for information on using FlashAir cards, see the FlashAir manual).

Equipped with a webcam function

The camera firmware must be updated to the version 1.06 or later.
Click here to download the update on Ricoh Imaging Japan website.

Various functions not available with built-in PC cameras. Useful in outdoor and indoor scenes, and also during business and leisure situations. The range of situations for using WG-6 continues to expand.

Images not possible with a camera built into a computer can be achieved through the use of functions such as the ring light and the macro shooting function which enable images to be taken as close as up to 1 cm from the subject.

Easy connection just by connecting the cable

The camera can be easily connected to a computer just by switching to the UVC mode and connecting the supplied USB cable. This requires no complicated settings or adapter. (The camera is not equipped with a microphone. Use a microphone such as the one built into a computer.)

Support for various web conferencing apps
Verified apps with web conferencing functions that work with the camera:
Zoom, Skype, Microsoft Teams, Google Meet, Cisco WebEx, Facebook Messenger

* Use the optional Extension Adapter TE-2 to prevent interference with the battery cover when using a tripod.

High image quality due to superior optical performance and image processing

The camera achieves high image quality with Full HD resolution at a frame rate of 30 fps.
The back-illuminated CMOS image sensor and high performance image processing engine allow you to share clear live streaming images.
The 5x optical zoom also supports a wide range of shooting scenes.

Skin tones appear bright and clear.

Built-in PC camera

WG-6

* This is an image captured from a computer running Microsoft Teams while using the other model equipped with the same function.

Macro shooting function with the minimum focusing distance of
1 cm*.

The camera provides reliable focusing when close to the subject at an approximate distance of 10 cm in the normal mode and 1 cm in the macro mode.

The webcam function of the RICOH WG-6 enables you to share images of the finer details on small parts and writing in documents in a clear live streaming format. This promotes smooth discussion during meetings and business talks with other people based in remote locations.

The camera can also be held in your hand to deliver images.

* While using the webcam function, autofocus operates at a range of 10 cm to infinity from the front of the lens. When using autofocus at a closer distance than this, press the macro button on the rear side of the camera to switch the focus mode to [1cm Macro] so that you can move the subject closer to the camera at a distance of up to 1 cm from the front of the lens.

The subject can also be moved closer to the camera to deliver images.

The RICOH WG-6 can show clear images of text that cannot be readable with a camera built into a computer

WG-6

The powerful Ring Light illuminating the subject

With the Ring Light arranged on the outside of the lens that can adjust the brightness in 9 levels, the camera can illuminate the subject at a suitable level of brightness to enable you to capture clear live streaming images that show the finer details of the subject. It also enables you to share clear live streaming images even while working in dark places and locations hidden by shadows.

Use the Ring Light in the macro mode.
This enables you to deliver clear live streaming images of fine printed text and similar features on circuit boards.

Support for various situations in business and learning

You can use the camera in situations that require clear and high resolution images, such as during web conferences and business talks on design work and factory work as well as at civil engineering and construction sites, and also when giving product presentations or when teaching at public schools and cram schools.

High-definition images facilitate smooth business talks and make presentations more detailed


* When using the webcam function with the camera mounted on a tripod, the optional “Extension Adapter TE-2” is necessary. (The adapter is necessary to prevent the tripod from interfering with the battery cover when it is opened to access the USB terminal.)
* The webcam function does not have voice capability. Use a microphone such as the one built into the computer being used during the web conference.
* The image quality of the webcam function is fixed at “Full HD, 30 fps”.
* While using the webcam function, the monitor does not turn on. Capture settings such as exposure and white balance cannot be used.
* There is a limit to the time the camera can be used as a webcam based on the battery level. Also, leaving the ring light turned on for a long period of time causes the camera to overheat and turn off automatically.

Approximate times for continuous use when the battery is fully charged (These times vary depending on the room temperature and other factors when using the camera.)
• Ring light OFF: Approx. 360 minutes
• Ring light brightness set to “1”: Approx. 200 minutes
• Ring light brightness set to “5”: Approx. 45 minutes
• Ring light brightness set to “9”: Approx. 20 minutes
* Operating systems that support the webcam function: Windows 11, Windows 10, Windows 8.1, macOS12 Monterey, macOS 11.0 Big Sur, macOS 10.15 Catalina.
