Pentax WG-3 overview

  • 1Description

The black WG-3 Digital Camera Kit from Pentax provides you with the WG-3 camera, a carabiner strap and a macro stand. The camera has a backlit CMOS image sensor with a resolution of 16MP. It's equipped with a 3", 460K-pixel widescreen TFT LCD monitor providing a 170° horizontal and vertical viewing angle. The monitor has an anti-reflective coating. The WG-3's 4x optical zoom lens has an effective focal length of 4.5-18mm, equivalent to 25-100mm in 35mm format. It also features a wide, fast f/2.0 aperture. Six LED Macro Lights around the circumference of the lens barrel allow for brighter, more uniform illumination for macro work. The lens has a protective cover with an SP coating.

To compensate for camera shake, and thus enable you to capture blur-free shots, the camera utilizes two forms of image stabilization: sensor-shift and digital. The digital component is divided into two parts: Pixel Track and high ISO. This rugged camera is waterproof, with a depth rating 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.

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
