$wg-m1.jpg

A new camera will soon be joining the Ricoh (formerly Pentax) WG waterproof outdoor lineup. The new compact pictured above, which will be known as the Ricoh WG-M1, appears to be a video-oriented device with a nontraditional form factor. It inherits some of its styling from the current WG-4.
Its specifications are as follows:
Waterproof to 10 meters for up to 1 hour
Shock, dust, and coldproof (-10° C)
Full-HD video recording at 30FPS
120FPS high-speed videos at 848x480
Support for endless recording (i.e. limited by card size only)
Time-lapse videos
14-megapixel 1/2.3" CMOS sensor
1.5-inch LCD with 115k dots
16.8mm (eqv.) lens with 160-degree field of view
6 elements in 6 groups
2 aspherical elements
Variable field of view underwater
Minimum focusing distance 0.6m (0.8m underwater)
Micro SDHC card slot
Built-in Wi-Fi w/ remote shooting capabilities
42.5x66.5x89.5 mm
Weight: 151g (190g with battery and card)
This alongside the recently-launched WG mounting accessories shows that Ricoh is trying hard to expand the appeal of its products by following the same route that led GoPro to success.
The presence of built-in Wi-Fi in this camera is of particular interest, as this would be a first for a Pentax/Ricoh.

Looks like a stop-watch too!

I think its catered to me mounted more than for shooting conventionally.

Saw the DJI Phantom 2 on sale at HarbourFront yesterday at $2xx, boy radio controlled stuff sure are cheap nowadays...
I sure was tempted to buy one to use with a device like this WG-M1. (the WG-M1 is tougher than most mounted cameras which is an advantage)


Can also strap to wrist and shoot like wrist mounted laser gun... :D
