About the Pentax WG-2

Pentax Optio WG-2 rugged, adventure proof digital camera with GPS functionality is perfect for any environment.

With 12 generations of underwater/ruggedized cameras behind it, Pentax hopes its extensive experience in the field distinguishes it from a growing number of competitors. The latest WG-2 is a 16MP CMOS sensor camera whose design looks like a cross between an SUV and a pair of running shoes. Features include a 5x optical zoom lens, a 3-inch, 460K dot display, better GPS, 6 LED lamps to illuminate close-ups to 1 cm from the surface of the lens, 88.2MB of onboard memory, and of course those rugged specs: Waterproof to 40 feet, shockproof to 5 feet, freezeproof to 14 F, and dustproof.
