Optio WG-2

Rating: no rating

Lowest Price: £154.90

The waterproof, dustproof and shock-resistant build of these two new cameras, offer users a heavy-duty camera that is ideal for shooting outdoors.



Equipped with the latest back-illuminated CMOS image sensor and a state-of-the-art imaging engine, the Optio WG2 and Optio WG2-GPS are ideal for shooting in poor light, delivering clearer and sharper images with minimised noise.



The cameras are packed with a range of features including 16 megapixels and high-resolution Full HD movie recording (1920 x 1080 pixels). Built with a new wide, high-resolution LCD monitor images are easy to view, even in bright sunlight. Additionally, the cameras offer outstanding underwater shooting capability at a depth of up to 12 metres and perform superbly in demanding outdoor conditions as they can withstand a drop of 1.5 metres, cold to -10C and a weight up to 100kg.



The PENTAX Optio WG2-GPS comes equipped with a newly designed GPS module that offers some crucial improvements over its predecessor.
