Pentax WG2 Black 16-megapixel Digital Camera

A camera built "Life–Proof" Pentax has built some of the worlds most robust water and weather resistant cameras, dating back to the Zoom 90–WR and continues the tradition with the WG–2. The cameras durable compact body is waterproof, dustproof, freezeproof, crushproof and shockproof to meet the demands of today's modern lifestyle. The rear–illuminated CMOS sensor will capture images in much lower light and keep digital noise to a minium even at higher ISO's. Take the WG–2 anywhere. It dares you.
  • 16 Megapixel BSI CMOS Image Sensor
  • Durable, Rugged, yet Compact Design.
  • 5x Optical Zoom with 28mm Wide Angle.
  • Digital Microscope uses 6 LED lights for close ups.

Heavy Duty Construction
By further enhancing the water tightness of the camera body, PENTAX has upgraded the Optio WG–2's underwater performance to 12 meters, for up to two hours of continuous operation (equivalent to IPX8 or JIS Class 8 waterproof performance). This camera is also designed to be highly shock–resistant (from a height of 1.5 meters) *, dustproof**, cold–resistant (down to –10°C)***, and crushproof (with a weight up to 100 kgf)****. All these features make the Optio WG–2 the ideal imaging partner in harsh, demanding shooting conditions.

Back–illuminated CMOS image sensor
The Optio WG–2 comes equipped with the latest back–illuminated CMOS image sensor, which offers much lower noise even when camera is set to higher sensitivities. With the combination of a top sensitivity of ISO 6400, 16 effective megapixels, and its new imaging engine, this model delivers super–high–resolution images. The Optio WG2 also features the new Handheld Night Snap mode, which captures four images of the same scene, then produces a single blur–free, composite image from them— all automatically.

Extra–large, high–resolution 3.0–inch LCD
Optio WG2–GPS features a new extra–large, high–resolution 3–inch LCD monitor with wide 16:9 proportions and 460,000 dots. The AR (Anti–Reflection) coating minimizes annoying glare and reflections to assure a sharp, clear on–screen image even under harsh sunshine, while its wide–view design offers a clear view of the monitor from approximately 170 degrees horizontally and vertically, making it particularly useful in low and high angle shooting.

Digital Microscope mode with six LED Macro Lights
By positioning six LED Macro Lights around the circumference of the lens barrel for macro shooting — the Optio WG2–GPS provides brighter and uniform illumination on the subject when the Digital Microscope mode is selected.* Thanks to the Macro Lights, the user can clearly see a magnified view of the microscopic world often unnoticeable with the naked eye on the camera´s LCD monitor and effortlessly capture it in eye–catching images. Its instant illumination enhance function, which automatically raises the illumination level of the LED Macro Lights at the moment of shutter release, has also been upgraded to minimize camera shake and subject shake. In addition, the Macro Lights provide a Self–Portrait Assist mode to check if the subject´s face is safely captured within the picture frame using the blink of an LED lamp; and a new LED lighting mode to use the Macro Lights as a lighting device in the dark.
* When the Digital Microscope mode is selected, the recorded size is fixed at 2 MP (at 16:9 proportions).

Full HD movie recording
The Optio WG–2 offers the Full HD movie recording function employing the H.264 recording format, allowing the user to capture high–quality, extended movie clips (1920 x 1080 pixels) at a frame rate of 30 frames per second. It also features a high–speed camera function* for slow–motion playback of captured movie clips and an interval movie function to simplify advanced movie–recording techniques. A micro–HDMI terminal (Type D) is also provided on the camera body allowing output of Full HD movie clips and sound to external devices.
* When this function is selected, the recorded size is fixed at VGA (640 x 480 pixels).

5X optical zoom lens with 28mm wide–angle coverage
The new Optio WG2 features a high–performance 5X optical zoom lens covering focal lengths equivalent to 28mm wide angle to 140mm telephoto in the 35mm format. Thanks to this versatile zoom lens, the camera captures beautiful, lively pictures in a wide range of subjects and scenes— from spectacular landscapes to family/group shots in a confined space.

  1. Carabiner strap included
  2. Protector neoprene case (available as an optional accessory) to protect the camera body from scratches and grime
  3. Comes with two remote–control receptors which allow the user to send in the remote signal either from front or back of the camera
  4. A Macro Stand is also included as a standard accessory to make extended observation effortless even at a minimum distance of one centimeter away from the subject
