The just announced Ricoh WG-M1 maybe be more useful and powerful than you first think.


 Hi Photographer friends,

I own a Go-Pro similar camera and I can tell you that the New Ricoh WG-M1 will blow it away. I am noy going through all the specifications, just the main reason I will get one.

  1.  Effortless underwater shooting without a housing
  2. Wireless LAN connection to support remote operation using smartphones. You can remotely control the camera with your smart phone and even see the image on your smart phone screen. You can transfer the images to your phone and post images to Facebook, or email, etc.
  3. Approximately 14.0 effective megapixels captures vibrant, high-resolution still images, while its high-speed, continuous shooting capability records subjects at a speed of roughly 10 images per second.
  4. The WG-M1 provides Full HD movie recording in the H.264 recording format, capturing high-quality, extended movie clips (1920 x 1080 pixels, 16:9 proportions) at a frame rate of 30 frames per second.* Thanks to its digital shake reduction mode, the user is assured of flawless, blur-free movies, with a choice of four angle-of-view settings — Wide (approximately 137 degrees),** Medium,*** Narrow*** and Underwater. It also provides a host of creative tools to simplify complex movie-recording techniques, including “Motion detection,” which automatically starts recording a movie when the camera detects a moving object within the image field; “Loop recording,” which keeps recording movies while creating new files at five-or ten-minute intervals; “High-speed Movie,”**** which records movies specifically for slow-motion playbacks; and “Time Lapse Movie,” which produces time-compressed movies using a time-lapse recording technique. In addition, a micro-HDMI terminal (type D) is provided on the camera body for the simultaneous output of movie clips and sound to external audio-visual devices.
The GO-Pro that has been so popular sells for more $$$ and the Ricoh WG-M1 has more capabilities. The most important to me is the wi-fi connectivity.
