Photography Skillset

Point and shoot - If you're not quite the expert yet or you're just getting started in the world of photography, the Ricoh WG-M1 will satisfy your needs.

Video skill level

Just a beginner - Whether you're just starting to develop some expertise or you only record videos from time to time, then the Ricoh WG-M1 will satisfy your needs..

When you've got deep theoretical and practical knowledge about what makes a great video clip, there's a minimum level - and camera - you'll need to operate with. This camera from Ricoh with its array of settings works really well for those who are meticulous about what they produce each time they shout action!

Video Scenarios

Streaming video live is a great way to share your experiences and this camera from Ricoh provides a couple of connectivity options to help you with this.

Recording every moment of the day's events is precious and this device certainly delivers. While the camera is rolling it has a handy Image stabilization feature built-in.

Its always great to capture moments of delight at home or while spending time with family and friends on an outing. For this, the Ricoh WG-M1 is a great companion to have.

For your Video posts - This camera comes with an image stabilizer which reduces any wobbling in your recordings. In addition, the size of the image sensor (5.760 x 4.290 mm mm), helps with the actual quality of the recorded image. 

Capture the thrills - Your escapades can be captured in multiple angles you would have skipped on with delicate cameras. This camera from Ricoh has a good level of impact and splash protection for your needs.

Other Video needs

Breathtaking transitions such as rolling clouds or city lights can captured as a time-lapse using the Ricoh's in-built intervalometer

Low light recording can be tricky, however this camera has got what it takes to help you through that. This is because its minimum aperture number combined with it's maximum ISO sensitivity can produce crispy images with minimal noise.

Capturing photos and video from your perspective while in action is always something special. There's no substitute for people seeing things they you experienced it. Which is why the Ricoh WG-M1 is a good fit as it's shape and size makes POV shots a breeze.

Photo Scenarios

If you're looking to simply use your camera to point-and-shoot everyday moments with an item or person as the subject matter, then the WG-M1 is an easy recommendation for this.

While taking those action shots during the day's event, you'll be aiming to keep your subject matter in sharp focus while they're in motion. The Auto Focus Tracking capability that comes with this camera helps with this.

Taking photos while underwater is a lot of fun. You'll be able to bathe the subject of your photograph with the colours and hues only found when taking shots in an aquatic environment.

Sometimes while on sightseeing or on a tour, you can only observe things from a distance. Which is why the zoom capability on this camera comes in handy in that situation.

If you've got requirements to take photos of a variety of landscapes, then the presence of multiple scene modes on a camera is helpful in order to setup quickly and start shooting. This model from Ricoh has got this capability making it a suitable option for your needs. 

Other considerations

With the Ricoh WG-M1, you can rest easy while out and about in the rain because this model comes fully water resistant.

Taking photos while taking a dive requires it to fully waterproof. This model will suit your needs as it is fully waterproof up to 10 m metres.

The outdoors can get quite sandy depending on the environment you'll be taking pictures in. Which is why a camera like this is what you'll need as its been fully certified as dust-proof.


Fed up with the black and grey devices that dominate the laptop market? The bold colours and exciting design of the WG-M1 offer a very funky alternative.

When you're more concerned about what your camera does than how it looks, the WG-M1 is a safe bet.
