Details & Highlights
A Camera Ready for Anything.A Backlit 16 megapixel CMOS sensor, coupled with the new–generation imaging engine drives pristine images up to ISO 6400. The triple shake reduction system combines an image–sensor–shift–type SR (Shake Reduction) mechanism with the digital Pixel Track and high ISO Shake Reduction modes. The optical 4X zoom lens offers a high–performance, large aperture of F2.0 and is surrounded by 6 LED Macro Lights around the circumference of the lens barrel for evenly illuminated close–ups.
With enhanced waterproof construction that easliy allows for a depth of 45 feet, this shockproof, ruggedized design protects your precious memories and images. A sturdy crushproof construction withstands weights up to 220 pounds of force. Cold–resistant to sub–freezing temperatures of 14 ° F, and dustproof design protects the camera from a day in Antartica to the day trip in the Mojave. So take the WG–4 anywhere you want fantastic images, and never worry that it won't make it home.

Includes Pentax Floating Strap!
Keep your waterproof camera afloat!
Don´t let your Optio waterproof camera get away from you. This wrist strap will keep your camera and your digital memories afloat. Comfortable wrist strap is easily adjustable with attached spring fastener.
Bright, marine–yellow fabric is easy to spot in the reflective water. Quick–release buckle lets you remove your camera from the strap without having to take the strap off.
These cameras are also designed to be highly shock–resistant, dustproof, cold–resistant, and crushproof. All these features make the WG–4 and WG–4 GPS dependable, heavy–duty imaging partners in harsh, demanding outdoor conditions
25mm 4X optical zoom with aperture of F2.0
This optical zoom lens offers a maximum aperture of F2.0 to capture bright, clear images with minimal noise, even under dimly lit underwater conditions. With its four–times zoom coverage from 4.5mm to 18mm (approx. 25mm –100mm *equiv.35mm format ).
Various shooting modes
The newly equipped "Shutter Priority" mode and "USER" mode means the WG–4 and WG–4GPS are equipped with 29 different shooting modes. "The shutter priority mode allows the user to choose a specificshutter speed while the camera adjusts the apertureto ensure correctexposure.The USER mode allows the user to smoothly pick up the settings they frequently use.
High–performance, back–illuminated CMOS image sensor
The WG–4 and WG–4 GPS come equipped with back–illuminated CMOS image sensor (16M), which is superior in high–sensitivity and low–noise characteristics to conventional sensors and assures high–speed readout of image data signals , and delivers a top sensitivity of ISO 6400 and super–high–resolution images.
Dual anti–shake protection
The WG–4 and WG–4 GPS's dual shake reduction system combines an image–sensor–shift–type SR (Shake Reduction) mechanism with a Digital SR mode to more effectively compensate for the adverse effects of camera shake and subject shake in shake–prone conditions, such as when capturing poorly lit subject with ambient light only, or when shooting sunset scenes.
Six LED Macro Lights
By positioning six LED Macro Lights around the circumference of the lens barrel for macro shooting, the WG–4 and WG–4 GPS provide brighter, more uniform illumination on the subject when the Digital Microscope mode is selected.* With the Macro Lights, the user can clearly see a magnified view of a microscopic world often unnoticeable with the naked eye on the camera's LCD monitor and effortlessly capture eye–catching images.
Full HD movie recording
The WG–4 and WG–4 GPS provide Full HD movie recording employing the H.264 recording format, allowing the user to capture high–quality, extended movie clips (1920 x 1080 pixels, 16:9 proportions) at a frame rate of 30 frames per second.
Extra–large, high–resolution, wide–frame 3.0–inch LCD monitor
These WG–series models incorporate an extra–large, high–resolution 3.0–inch color LCD monitor with horizontally extended 16:9 proportions and approximately 460,000 dots.
Advanced GPS functions
The WG–4 GPS comes equipped with a sophisticated GPS module, which automatically records position data* and travel log data onto captured images and adjusts the built–in clock to local time. Thanks to newly incorporated pressure sensor and digital compass, the user can not only check the pressure, altitude/underwater depth and direction of a shooting location, but also record such data onto captured images for future reference.
