Pentax's Optio WG-2 GPS Digital Camera (Orange) is the version of the company's 13th Optio line, which features built-in GPS capabilities. From just looking at the WG-2, you can see that this camera means business. It's built to stand up to abuse - whether that's from a fall, the cold, dust, water, or being crushed. And, it's smart - capable of telling you exactly where you shot what, which is useful for multiple applications. All these qualities are sure to be appreciated by the adventurous, parents of toddlers, or by anyone who values protecting their investments.

"Rugged" is the keyword used by Pentax to describe the WG-2 - and from all the features listed above, it's easy to see why. In terms of the nitty-gritty, the camera is waterproof down to 40', it can survive a drop of up to 5', it's coldproof down to 14°F, it has a JIS 6 dustproof rating, and it can withstand being crushed by up to 220 pounds of force. The WG-2 also comes with a snazzy strap and a carabiner, not to mention its reinforced plastic and aluminum "sporty" design - all elements which are practical and clearly communicate that this is one camera that's prepared for almost anything.

The Optio WG-2 is more than a tough piece of equipment, though; it's also a great point-and-shoot camera, capable of taking awesome pictures! The camera houses a backlit 16Mp CMOS sensor that not only captures high-res, detailed stills, but also enables capture of full HD 1080p video. Helping the sensor out in the imaging department would be the wide-angle 5x internal optical zoom lens with a 28-140mm (35mm equivalent) focal range. Other highlights of the lens include the 6 embedded LEDs for even lighting of macro subjects and a hardened cover with SP coating to protect the inner lens elements,

An additional tool necessary for taking great pictures is none-other than the 3.0" widescreen LCD, which sports an anti-reflecting coating for ease of use outdoors. Other beneficial functions include an ISO range of 125-6400, image stabilization for blur-free photos, multiple metering modes, and a built-in flash. Of course, the many capture modes make for uncomplicated picture-taking without the guesswork.

What's more, this WG-2 also tracks the location where your pictures are shot. The built-in GPS helps you to keep straight where you shot what, which can be a useful tool for sorting and storing files, not to mention for sharing online with friends and family through geo-tagging.

Other highlights of the WG-2 include the ability to shoot using manual focus. This can be a great tool for expanding your creativity - giving you the freedom to choose what is the most important part of the photo to bring attention to. The WG-2 also sports SD/SDHC/SDXC storage, and HDMI output for a simple, one-cable connection to your HDTV, a rechargeable battery, and support for numerous menu languages.
