Flash Off/Flash On, taking two pictures with single release

In this mode, the camera takes two pictures with a single press of the shutter button one with the flash off and the other with it on. Because there is no flash with the first picture to startle the fish, you can be sure that both the shot with the flash and the one without will turn out well.

* Available in Underwater mode.

Easy to use with gloves on; improved overall operability

Designed for ease of use in the field, the WG-6 features a rugged aluminum-panel chassis, simple mode selection that requires only rotating the mode dial, and an easy-to-operate vertically-oriented zoom button. The spacious layout of the controls on the back of the camera lets you use them without removing your gloves. In addition, previously-saved exposure settings and the like can be quickly recalled by selecting ADJ. mode with the Movie/ADJ. button.

Faster and easier to use design.

The new ADJ. button can be customized to quickly change and recall settings for faster operation when taking photos, you can change and recall settings for exposure compensation, image size, aspect ratio, ISO sensitivity, and white balance. Shooting mode, exposure compensation, and other settings can also be saved as “User Mode 1” (U1) or “User Mode 2” (U2) to be recalled quickly and easily, simply by rotating the mode dial.

Outdoor View Setting

The brightness of the LCD monitor can readily be adapted dealing with changes in ambient lighting conditions for ease of viewing and an improved shooting experience. Brightness can be increased by up to two steps to make dark areas of the display easier to see in sunlight, or lowered by up to two steps to reduce glare for night photography.

High-performance GPS and an electronic compass.

Use GPS to record the current location with the image data whenever a picture is taken. In addition to GPS, the WG 6 also supports GLONASS and the Japanese Quasi-Zenith Satellite System (QZSS, also known as Michibiki). In addition, a satellite-based augmentation system (SBAS) is used for more reliable positioning with greater accuracy and reduced error. The data recorded with photographs can be used to view their location on a map or display your route on a computer, further enhancing the post-photography experience. Location data, the heading provided by the electronic compass, or the time (UTC) can also be imprinted on pictures in their lower right corners.
