PENTAX Optio WG-2

The Pentax Optio WG-2 compact digital camera, first launched in March 2012, was selected as the Best Rugged Compact Camera in the TIPA awards 2012.

In their product analysis, the TIPA panel said: “The newest model of the proven PENTAX WG-series is available with or without the GPS feature (geotagging). Made for rugged use, the camera is protected against drop damage up to 1.5 metres (5 feet) and withstands weights up to 100 kilograms (220 LBF). It is well prepared for use underwater, for depths up to 12 metres (40 feet), and in dusty climates as well as cold conditions, down to -10° C (14° F). The lens offers a 5x optical 28-140mm (35mm equivalent) zoom. The back illuminated 16 MP CMOS sensor enables high-resolution still photography as well as Full HD movie recording (1920 x 1080 pixels) at 30 frames per second with high quality H.264 compression. The TIPA jury enjoyed the LED-lights supported digital microscope for subjects as close as 1 centimetre.”

TIPA is an independent, non-profit organisation comprising the chief and technical editors of 29 leading photo and imaging magazines from 14 countries, most of which are based in Europe. This year’s winners were selected from the range of new photo and imaging products that were introduced to the market between April 1, 2011 and March 31, 2012.
