Pentax WG Series Adventure Camera



Image

Pentax today announced two new compact, waterproof cameras ahead of CP+ 2013 in Yokohama, Japan. The super-rugged WG-3 will debut alongside the less-tough WG-10 at the show.

Image

The WG-10 and WG-3 models both carry on the WG series’ Batmobile-esque design tradition, with a rubber coating, plenty of ridges, and a contoured body, all to aid grip.

Image

The WG-3 features a 4x optical zoom lens with a maximum aperture of f/2—pretty bright for a compact, and in league with last year’s excellent Olympus TG-1. Like last year’s WG-2, the WG-3 is built around a backlit 16-megapixel CMOS sensor, with a 3-inch LCD on the back and the now-familiar set of LED lamps around the lens ring for better macro shooting, and will be available with or without built-in GPS.

Image

New this year is a dedicated low-power LCD on the front of the camera, which can display time, pressure, and (for the GPS version) altitude.
Of course, the WG-3 is extra tough, rated to be waterproof to 45 feet, withstand drops from 6.6 feet, survive down to 14°F, and keep out bits of dust and sand.

Image

The body-cap lens is designed to provide toy-camera–like effects for Q cameras (and on the cheap, at that), and is expected to launch sometime this summer. Details about the flash are also sparse, but Pentax states that it will feature guide number of 36 at ISO 100 with both horizontal and vertical bounce available. The flash is also expected to debut this summer. Pentax has not yet announced prices for either accessory.
