Pentax Optio WG-2 Digital Camera


The Pentax Optio WG-2 Digital Camera is the company's 13th generation of the "rugged", life-proof camera line. You don't have to be an extreme adventure enthusiast to appreciate the features of the WG-2 though. These include the fact that the camera is waterproof down to 40', it can survive a drop of up to 5', it is designed to withstand up to 220 pounds of force, it's coldproof down to 14°F, and that it's dustproof. Phew! That's a lot of safety built-into one little point-and-shoot.

More than being a tough camera that can stand up to intentional or unintentional abuses, the Optio WG-2 is also one great image-maker. You of course want to come away from your adventures with awesome photos. The Optio has a number of respectable specs in that department, to help you capture the decisive moment with clarity, and ease. The backlit 16Mp CMOS sensor provides high-res stills and full HD 1080p video at 30 fps. A wide-angle 5x internal optical zoom lens with a 28-140mm (35mm equivalent) focal length lets you capture subjects near and far, and features like image stabilization help to do so as well. Additional tools for impressive image-capture include the generous 3.0" LCD display, the ring of 6 LED lights on the lens for even lighting of macro shots, a built-in flash, and a bevy of auto shooting modes.
