PENTAX PENTAX Optio WG-1 and Optio WG-1 GPS – The Rough and Tumble Camera

The only thing that could be tougher than a seasoned adventurer would be his camera – if he managed to get his hands on a new PENTAX Optio WG-1 or a PENTAX Optio WG-1 GPS. The latest generation of adventure series cameras from PENTAX is waterproof, dustproof, shockproof, coldproof and crushproof making it almost impervious to anything Mother Nature and a careless adventurer could throw at it. It can survive a 33 feet underwater dive, a 5-foot drop, 100 kilogram of crushing force, minus 10 degrees Celsius of sub-zero temperature and a handful of dust devils and still shoot great pictures with its 14 megapixel sensor and wide angle 5X internal optical zoom lens.

The Optio WG-1 and WG-1 GPS adventure series camera sports a wide 2.7 inch LCD that features a wide angle 16:9 aspect ratio and anti-reflective coating. Low light conditions won’t be much of a problem since the autofocus assist lamp can help quickly and accurately focus your shots. For some really up close and personal shots, like microscopic close, the PENTAX Optio WG-1 offers an Enhanced Digital Microscope mode with five macro LEDs for additional macro lighting and a detachable macro stand.

The two models also share PENTAX’s Fast Face Detection technology, Smile Capture, and Blink Detection for portraits. Speaking of portraits, it has a nifty Self-Portrait mode that’s perfect for social network activities. The built-in Pixel Track and Digital Shake Reduction guarantee sharp and blur-free shots. Video recording is in 720p HD at 30 frames per second and can be directly viewed on HDTVs by using an HDMI cable.

The WG-1 GPS comes with GPS capabilities that can tract and records topographical data when shooting pictures. Geo-tagging apps can help users easily check the precise locations of the captures images when they link their GPS data with computer based maps. Both the PENTAX Optio WG-1 and Optio WG-1 GPS support infrared remotes including the waterproof Remote Control WP. They can also accommodate an Eye-Fi wireless SD memory card for additional Wi-Fi connectivity.
