Ricoh’s new WG -M2

Ricoh’s new action cam captures 204 degrees of your escapades
If you want to capture as much of your action as possible, Ricoh’s new WG -M2 might be for you: It shoots 4K video across a frankly ridiculous 204-degree field of view.

An update to the WGM1 -the new camera claims to be 40 per cent lighter a nd sma l ler than its predecessor while also claiming to be pretty tough -it’ll withstand freezing temperatures, knocks and scrapes, and is waterproof to 65 feet.

In terms of shooting specs, it can capture 4K video at 30 frames p er second, 10 8 0 p at 60fps, and 720p at 120fps. If you use it to shoot stills, it’ll capture 8 megapixels and there’s a small 1.5-inch LCD to help you frame your snaps. The ultra-wide field of view can be narrowed, too, which simultaneously gives the camera enough breathing room to stabilise the images it captures.

The wide field of view sets it apart from cameras by GoPro, so if you need to capture more action the WG-M2 could be a good option. It goes on sale in April for $300
