Pentax Optio WG-1 Rugged Point And Shoot Camera With GPS
Oh gee, another rugged camera that can survive dings, water, cold weather and dust. In case you can’t tell that’s disdain seeping through.
The Pentax Option WG-1 captures 720p HD video, has a 14 megapixel sensor, 2.7-inch LCD and a 5x optical zoom. It can survive in water up to 33 feet, take on a 5 foot drop and keep snapping in temperatures as cold as 14 degrees F. But that’s not all. Surrounding the lens are 5 LEDs for illuminating closeups – something they call Digital Microscope mode - and if your heavy set friend, who weighs less than 220lbs, sits down on the camera it won’t be a problem.
When it launches you’ll be able to choose from two models; one that includes GPS (available colors: Purple GPS Black, GPS Yellow Green) and one that doesn’t (available colors: black). They’ll cost $400 and $350 respectively.
