The green Optio WG-3 Digital Camera with GPS 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 is equipped with a GPS module for recording position and travel log data onto captured images. The WG-3's advanced imaging engine enables a high ISO of 6400 for low-light shooting. Also aiding in efficiency of use is the ability to wirelessly recharge the battery, which alleviates the need to open battery compartments or remove the battery from the device.

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 Optio 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 and stereo sound. 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

GPS

GPS module automatically records position and travel log data onto captured images, while providing you with the following additional benefits: a built-in digital compass, gauges for pressure, altitude and water depth, and wireless recharging capabilities. The GPS also adjusts the built-in clock to local time

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. Focus lock can be activated by pressing the shutter release button halfway

Exposure Metering

Performs TTL, Multi-segment, Center-weighted and Spot metering

Shooting Modes

The camera has an HDR function featuring both Capture Mode, which combines 3 captured images to create a single image with wide dynamic range, and Playback filter, which processes a single image in a way that gives it the HDR look. Additional shooting modes include Handheld Night Snap (ISO 125-1600), Underwater, Underwater Movie, Digital Microscope (2MP), Flower, Interval Shot, Interval Movie, High Speed Movie (VGA, 120fps capture, 30fps playback, up to 15 sec length), Time-Lapse Movie (up to 15 sec length) , 1CM Macro Movie, Surf & Snow, Kids, Digital Wide (5MP), Digital Panorama (2MP per frame), Report (1280x960, ISO 125-1600), and Green (ISO 125-1600).
