  • High-resolution still images captured by an ultra-wide-angle, 160-degree lens and approximately 14.0 effective megapixels

    The WG-M1 delivers true-to-life, high-resolution still images, thanks to the combination of approximately 14.0 effective megapixels and a CMOS image sensor with outstanding high-sensitivity and low-noise characteristics and high-speed data readout.  During still-image shooting, it offers a choice of four angle-of-view settings: Wide (160 degrees),* Medium,** Narrow** and Underwater. It also provides a high-speed continuous shooting mode to record a series of still images at a speed of approximately 10 images per second. * The angle of view may vary depending on the selected image size. The maximum angle of view in underwater still-image recording is approximately 97 degrees. ** The medium and narrow settings are selectable only when image size of 10M or 14M is selected.

  • Wireless LAN connection to support remote operation using smartphones

    By installing a WG-M1-dedicated application in a smartphone or tablet computer, the user can perform various camera functions from a distance: confirm the status of a subject or scene, release the WG-M1’s shutter, and even check movie recordings in real time. The user can also browse and download images and movies recorded by the WG-M1 onto a smartphone or tablet computer for effortless editing using the tools provided by the application, then upload them to social networking and other websites to share them with friends.

  • Full HD movie recording with a selection of creative tools

    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 maximum length of a single movie clip is 25 minutes. ** The angle of view may vary depending on the selected image size. The maximum angle of view in underwater movie recording is approximately 90 degrees. *** The medium and narrow settings are selectable only when the image size of 1920 x 1080 pixels (at 30fps) is selected. **** The image size is fixed at 848 x 480 pixels (at 120fps), while the recording duration is fixed at 60 seconds.
