Pentax WG-1 overview

  • 1Description

Tough and smart? Yes, the Pentax Optio WG-1 GPS Digital Camera is quite the catch. With numerous design features to keep it protected against the elements and then some, this Optio is no sapling. Add to that the GPS functionality, and this WG-1 GPS cam not only protects itself, but it also knows where it is, at all times. GPS is great for geo-tagging your photos - for archiving or sharing online. And the waterproof, shockproof, crushproof, coldproof, and dustproof capabilities ensure that it'll be around long after you drop it at the beach.

Now, when it comes to the actual images, the WG-1 GPS won't disappoint. This point-and-shoot captures 14Mp photos and 720/30p HD video. Helping the camera do its duty would be a Pentax Zoom lens, 5x optical zoom, digital image stabilization, a 1/2.3" CCD, and a nicely sized 2.7" LCD. Another useful feature includes an HDMI connection for direct transfer of video to your HDTV. In addition, the camera also boasts a Digital Microscope mode for capturing macro images.
