A rugged chassis you can rely on in the harshest conditions. Exceptional 14 meter waterproof (up to 2 hours) and 1.6 meter shockproof.

With features that include uncompromising waterproofing—good for two hours of continuous use at a depth of 14 meters—freeze proofing* that ensures operation at temperatures of −10 °C, shock proofing capable of withstanding drops of 1.6 meters, and crush proofing capable of withstanding forces of 100 kgf, 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.

 

 

 

High resolution—with all the must-have features

Sharp, high-resolution images with 5X optical zoom starting from wide-angle of 28mm*

With a high-performance image processing engine and a back-illuminated CMOS sensor boasting high optical efficiency and an 16 effective megapixels, the WG-70 takes low-noise photos with a wide dynamic range that look beautiful even as prints.

* 35 mm format equivalent.

 

 

 

Shoot Movies in Full HD

While the camera can of course record Full HD (16:9) video at 30 fps, it also offers a High Speed Movie mode for recording slow-motion video and an Underwater Movie mode suited to underwater movie recording. Movie and Underwater Movie modes offer Movie SR (shake reduction), which can be used to reduce the effects of camera shake. Movie editing features within the camera let you split video or create movie stills from selected frames. The camera’s HDMI connector (Type D) lets you display movies on TVs

Underwater Mode

Developed specifically for underwater photography, the WG-70’s Underwater mode reduces the blue color cast so often seen in pictures taken underwater and effectively adjusts contrast to compensate for diffuse underwater light.

Outdoor View Setting

The brightness of the LCD monitor can readily be adapted to 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.

Flash Off/Flash On

In this mode, the camera takes two pictures each time the shutter button is pressed, one with the flash off and the other with it on, letting you concentrate on composition without fiddling with the controls.

* Available in Underwater Mode.

Take amazing macro photographs with the improved Digital Microscope mode.

With lighting provided by six LED lamps positioned around the lens, Digital Microscope mode supports super macro photography. At the default image size of 2M, the WG-70 offers up to 6.6× zoom for astonishing results that look almost like they were taken with a microscope. The WG-70 offers new image size options of up to 12M * that further enhance the potential of Digital Microscope mode with pictures that can be printed at large sizes or cropped during post-processing.

The LED lamps light automatically even during normal macro photography, ensuring that your subject is always well-lit. One of the attractions of the WG-series is that it lets you shoot from as close as 1 cm (0.03ft), letting you get much closer to your subject than an SLR or smartphone camera.

* Maximum zoom is 6.6× (combined optical and digital zoom) at the default image size of 2M, 1.8× (optical zoom) at sizes of 4M, 5M, and 12M.

 

 

Modes to suit various scene

Choose from 25 Shooting Modes

The camera offers settings suited to every subject, including an Auto Picture mode that automatically identifies the subject type and chooses the appropriate mode, a Landscape mode for vivid shots of green trees or blue sky, a Surf and Snow mode suited to shots backed by brightly-lit beaches or mountain snows, and a Sports mode for shots of fast-moving subjects.

You also have a Green mode option that lets you instantly restore defaults by pressing the green button.

 

Expand your creative horizons with Image Tone.

Customize pictures to your subject or your taste with six image tone options, including the new Cross Process feature for photos with the unique coloring associated with cross-processing film development techniques*, Vibrant for rich, bright, vivid colors, and Slide Film for dynamic, high-contrast images like those produced by reversal film.

* A method for developing photographic film in which developers intended for film of different type are used to produce unique colors.
