Ricoh WG-70

Tough and versatile, the Ricoh WG-70 is a compact, durable, and flexible point-and-shoot designed for everyday and extreme adventures alike. A reinforced physical construction renders it waterproof for depths up to 45.9' and shockproof from heights of 5.2', as well as freeze, crush, and dustproof.

In regard to imaging capabilities, the WG-70 features a 16MP 1/2.3" back-illuminated CMOS sensor, which enables high-resolution stills shooting and Full HD 1080p video recording, as well as a sensitivity range up to ISO 6400 to suit working in a variety of situations.

A 5x optical zoom lens also contributes to this flexibility, which covers a wide-angle to telephoto 28-140mm equivalent focal length range, and is complemented by Pixel Track, Movie, and Digital SR modes to help realize sharper imagery when shooting handheld.

Additionally, the WG-70 also incorporates a 2.7" 230k-dot LCD monitor, which uses an Outdoor View Setting mode for improved visibility in bright lighting conditions, and six LED lights also surround the lens to help illuminate close-up subjects when working with the Digital Microscope mode.

Durable Design

The WG-70 is designed to withstand a wide variety of conditions, ranging from harsh climates to everyday mishaps:
  • Waterproof-rated to IPX8 for use underwater to depths of 45.9' / 14m (JIS Class 8)
  • Freezeproof to temperatures as low as 14°F / -10°C
  • Shockproof to falls from 5.2' / 1.6m high
  • Crushproof to withstand up to 220 lbf / 100 kgf of pressure
  • Dustproof-rated to JIS Class 6 to protect the internal components of the camera


It is Worksite-ready

Equipped with a chassis featuring the uncompromising water-, dust-, cold-, and shock-resistance so essential for construction worksites, the WG-70 also boasts six LED lamps arranged around the lens to provide lighting for macro photography.


16MP CMOS Sensor

Featuring a 16MP 1/2.3" BSI CMOS sensor, the WG-70 is capable of recording high-resolution stills and Full HD 1080p video to 30 fps. The sensor also affords a sensitivity range of ISO 125-6400, for working in a variety of lighting conditions, and its back-illuminated design helps to reduce noise for improved clarity and color fidelity. Also, a Handheld Night Snap mode can be used to automatically blend several images of the same scene into a single blur-free composite image for greater versatility when working in low light.

Ricoh 5x Optical Zoom Lens

Spanning wide-angle to telephoto focal lengths, the 5x optical zoom lens covers a 28-140mm equivalent range to suit photographing a wide array of subject types. Its optical design features a series of aspherical elements for notable sharpness with controlled distortion, and Pixel Track SR (Shake Reduction), Movie SR, and Digital SR all help to minimize the appearance of camera shake when shooting handheld. For working with distant subjects, an Intelligent Zoom function can also be used to achieve an effective 36x zoom.

Powerful Features

Six LED macro lights surround the lens to produce brighter, more even lighting when working with close-up subjects. An Instant Illumination Enhance function also enables working with higher shutter speeds by momentarily raising the output of the lights while the shutter is released. Also, the LEDs are useful for selfies in Self-Portrait Assist mode or simply as a lighting device in the LED Lighting mode.

Enhanced Digital Microscope mode enables close focusing to 0.4" along with a choice of recording sizes, from 12MP to 2MP in 16:9 aspect ratios, depending on if resolution or magnification is prioritized.

Other Camera Features

Underwater and Underwater Movie shooting modes optimize color, contrast, and white balance settings to deliver clearer, more color-accurate imagery when working in underwater conditions. The flash is also usable when working underwater and there is an option to bracket exposures; one with flash and one without.

Benefitting working with the rear 2.7" 230k-dot LCD monitor, an Outdoor View Setting mode automatically boosts the screen's brightness when working in bright, sunlit conditions for greater visibility.

An advanced Face Detection system quickly and automatically recognizes up to 32 faces and then prioritizes focus (Face Detection AF) and exposure (Face Detection AE) for optimized portraits. This recognition system also enables Smile Capture, Blink Detection, Small Face Filter, and Self-Portrait Assist functions.

Interval shooting modes allow you to record a series of exposures at pre-determined intervals for producing time-lapse imagery.

A Cross Processing effect has been added to the Image Tone settings to emulate the creative film development process to produce dramatic and stylized false colors. Other Image Tone settings include Vibrant, Slide Film, Bright, Natural, and Monochrome.

Digital Filter: B&W/Sepia, Toy Camera, Retro, Color, Extract Color, Color Emphasis, High Contrast, Starburst, Soft, Fish-eye, Brightness, and Miniature Filter.

Ricoh WG-70

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

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.

Underwater Mode

This mode uses white balance optimized for underwater photos, making colors appear more natural by adding reds that tend to get lost in photos taken under water.

Underwater Flash Mode

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.

Digital Microscope Mode

Take spectacular macro photos of details which is too small to be seen by the naked eye. Lighting is provided by six LEDs placed around the lens, ensuring that the camera never casts shadows on your subject.

Smiling Faces Detection

The camera detects portrait subjects and automatically releases the shutter when it spots the subject smiling.

The camera also detects when the subject is blinking and displays the message, “Closed eyes have been detected”

Self-portrait Assist

When the camera detects the face of a portrait subject, the macro LEDs around the lens will light to show your location in the frame. The Smile Capture feature can also be activated during selfies.

Small Face Filter

Retouch photos after shooting to reduce the size of faces relative to everything else. Faces can be reduced in size by approximately 5, 7, or 10 percent.

Interval Movie

Create time-lapse movies from still images taken automatically at preset intervals.

Choose interval settings from 1, 5, 10, 30, or 60 minutes.
