Ricoh WG-6 (Black) – Underwater Digital Camera. Dubbed an all-weather extreme compact camera, the black Ricoh WG-6 is distinguished by its impressively rugged physical design, incorporation of useful shooting modes, and versatile imaging capabilities. Its durable exterior construction renders it waterproof to depths of 65.6′, shockproof from heights of 6.6′ as well as freezeproof, crushproof, dustproof, and resistant to chemical disinfection. In regard to imaging capabilities, the WG-6 features a 20MP BSI CMOS sensor, which enables high-resolution stills shooting, a sensitivity range from ISO 125-6400, and UHD 4K30 video recording as well as Movie SR+ and Movie SR stabilization modes to help steady video footage. A 5x optical zoom lens also contributes to this flexibility, and covers a wide-angle to telephoto 28-140mm equivalent focal length range. Additionally, the WG-6 incorporates a bright 3.0″ 1.04m-dot AR-coated LCD monitor, an LED ring light to benefit photographing close-up subjects, and a high-accuracy GPS module to permit embedding location information within your image files.
The WG-6 is designed to withstand a wide variety of conditions, ranging from harsh climates to everyday mishaps:
- Waterproof-rated for use underwater to depths of 65.6′ / 20m
- Freezeproof to temperatures as low as 14°F / -10°C
- Shockproof to falls from 6.6′ / 2m high
- Crushproof to withstand up to 220 lbf / 100 kgf of pressure
- Dustproof to protect the internal components of the camera
Additionally, similar to the G-series of cameras, the WG-6 is chemical resistant, for using ethanol disinfection, bleach disinfection, and chlorine dioxide to suit business, industrial, and construction site use.

With a sturdy chassis geared to use with gloves, boasting a grip that fits the hand and a new mode dial, and with a host of features that emphasize thoroughgoing water-, shock-, dust-, and crushproofing, the design of the WG-6 cuts no corners when it comes to outdoor use. Combined with Outdoor View, monitor brightness settings that can easily be adjusted for outdoor lighting, these features ensure that the camera can be used without discomfort in all weathers. The camera also features high-precision GPS that can log your route or record location data with photographs for later viewing in a map application or on a computer, further enhancing the post-photography experience.
20 effective megapixel for sharp, high-resolution images.
4K video support.
A high-resolution, high-sensitivity, back-illuminated CMOS image sensor and high-performance image-processing engine combine for low-noise, high-quality images. The lens, which features 5× optical zoom and a focal length of about 28 mm (equivalent in 35 mm format) when zoomed all the way out, is suitable for a wide variety of subjects. The camera also supports 4K for movies with four times the resolution of Full HD.
Get up to ten times more light * with a Ring Light function for macro photography or movie recording in poorly-lit locations.
The brightness of the six LEDs around the lens can be adjusted to light the entire subject, or some can be turned off to add depth to close-ups taken in macro mode.
Leave your gloves on:
The shooting mode can now be selected with the mode dial, while the spacious layout of buttons on the back of the camera and the vertically-oriented zoom button make the camera easier to use.
