Capture Full HD 1080p video at 30fps. The camera's advanced imaging engine enables a high ISO of 6400 for low-light shooting.

  • 16MP Resolution - Features a backlit CMOS image sensor with a primary color filter and a 16MP resolution. The sensor works with the camera's advanced imaging engine to offer a maximum ISO of 6400 for low-light shooting--without compromising on image quality or color accuracy.
  • 3" LCD - Equipped with a 3", 460K-pixel 16:9 widescreen TFT LCD monitor that offers a 170° horizontal and vertical viewing angle. The screen has an anti-reflective (AR) coating for glare-free viewing in bright light
  • 4x Optical Zoom Lens - The lens' effective focal length is 4.5-18mm (35mm equivalent: 25-100mm), covering a wide-angle to telephoto range with a 4x optical zoom. The camera's Intelligent Zoom (digital) function extends the range further to approximately 28.8x, covering up to a 35mm equivalent focal length of 720mm. The lens also has a wide, fast f/2.0 maximum aperture. A total of 6 LED Macro Lights surround the circumference of the lens barrel, enabling brighter, more uniform illumination for macro work when the Digital Microscope mode is selected. Additionally, the lens has a protective cover with an SP coating
  • Image Stabilization - To counteract the effects of camera shake, especially in low light, the WG-3 uses two forms of Shake Reduction (image stabilization): sensor-shift and digital. The digital component is divided into two parts: Pixel Track and high ISO. Together, the three components are referred to as the triple shake reduction system. The Movie SR mode stabilizes your videos
  • Extreme Durability - This rugged camera is waterproof for up to 2 hr of continuous use at a maximum depth of 45.9'. It's also shockproof against drops up to 6.5', and crushproof against up to 220 LBF. Additionally, the WG-3 is dustproof (JIS 6) and built to withstand extreme temperatures as cold as 14°F
  • Full HD Movies - Record Full HD 1080p videos at 30 frames per second in widescreen format (1920x1080) with h.264 compression. Benefit from a high-speed recording function for slow-motion playback of captured movie clips, as well as a fast-forward function. The micro HDMI port lets you output videos to an HDTV or other compatible monitor
  • Focus System - Utilizes TTL contrast detection autofocus. AF assist lamp and macro illuminating LEDs make focusing easier. Focus modes include 9-point AF, Spot AF, Auto Tracking AF, Macro, 1CM Macro, Infinity Landscape, Pan Focus, and Manual Focus.
