Camera Focus - Ricoh WG-M1: WG-M1

The Ricoh WG-M1 is a camera that's specifically created for use as an action camera for extreme sports and outdoor pursuits. Featuring a revolutionary design, it can be easily attached to a variety of sports equipment using special equipment. Compact, lightweight and easily maneuverable, the camera doesn't need a housing. Here are the top 5 key features of the WG-M1:

Waterproof to 10m and shockproof without housing

The WG-M1 is great for taking on all sorts of adventures, no matter how rough the ride may be. Take it surfing, submerge it in the water, and even if you accidentally drop it, the shockproofing means that it won't be harmed. The Ricoh WG-M1 is rugged enough without a case, so there's no added bulk. 


Full HD video with stereo sound recording

The video capabilities of the WG-M1 enable you to capture true to life recordings of action scenes. Everything is covered, even the sound. Crystal clear stereo sound is captured thanks to unobstructed design. The WG-M1 also has a 137 degree ultra-wide angle field of view, so you don't miss any of the action.
