Heavy-duty construction for underwater shooting down to 12 meters deep, for up to two continuous hours
The solid, airtight body of the WG-30W is not only waterproof to a depth of 12 meters and for up to two hours of continuous operation (equivalent to IPX 8 or JIS Class 8), but also shockproof against falls from a height of approximately 1.5 meters, dustproof (equivalent to IPX 6 or JIS Class 6), freeze-proof to temperatures as low as ?10°C, and crushproof against weights up to 100kgf (kilogram force). Thanks to this dependable, heavy-duty construction, the WG-30W performs superbly and dependably in harsh, demanding outdoor conditions.
New back-illuminated CMOS image sensor and imaging engine
The WG-30W is equipped with a state-of-the-art 16 effective megapixel, back-illuminated CMOS image sensor, which assures excellent image resolution and high-sensitivity, low-noise characteristics Coupled with a newly designed imaging engine, this image sensor delivers a top sensitivity of ISO 6400. It also provides advanced image processing functions, made possible by the latest super-resolution technology, to assure sharp, clear, high-resolution images. It offers such innovative features as Handheld Night Snap mode, which automatically captures four images of the same nighttime scene and produces a single blur-free composite image from them.
Wi-Fi connection to support remote operation using smartphones
The WG-30W provides a host of Wi-Fi functions, including remote shutter release, review of recorded images, and setting of multiple shooting functions. The user can also browse and download recorded images onto a smartphone, then upload them to share with family and friends.
High-quality images made possible by advanced imaging technologies and a 5X optical zoom lens with 28mm wide-angle coverage
The WG-30W features a high-performance, five-times optical zoom lens with a focal-length coverage from 5mm to 25mm (equivalent to approx. 28mm wide angle to approx. 140mm medium telephoto in the 35mm format) to accommodate a wide range of scenes and subjects, including sweeping landscapes. It also features other convenient shooting functions, such as a macro mode to capture dramatic close-up images from a minimum distance of a mere one centimeter; an Intelligent Zoom function to extend the zoom range to approximately 36 times (equivalent to 1008mm in the 35mm format) without compromising image quality for high-quality super-telephoto photography; and an interval shooting mode, which will capture multiple images of a scene over a set time. Specifically designed for underwater photography, the Mermaid and Mermaid Movie modes are programmed to optimize colour and contrast based on the data of images and movies actually captured under the water. These modes deliver beautiful, true-to-life images by enhancing shades of red which are often lost in underwater photography, while effectively compensating for the loss of contrast caused by the diffusion of light in the water.
Full HD movie recording for extended shooting of high-quality movies
The WG-30W provides Full HD movie recording employing the H.264 recording format, allowing the user to capture high-quality, extended movie clips (1920 x 1080 pixels, 16:9 proportions) at a frame rate of 30 frames per second. It also features a high-speed camera function for slow-motion playback of captured movie clips, and an interval movie function that will give a time-lapse effect. A micro-HDMI terminal (Type D) is also provided on the camera body for simultaneous output of Full HD movie clips and sound to external audio-visual devices.
