Product Description

Developed as the top-of-the-line models of the dependable, heavy-duty PENTAX WG series, the WG-3 GPS offers the series’ best waterproof performance (down to 14 meters underwater) and shock resistance (against a fall from a height of two meters). It also features a newly designed, large-aperture, four-times optical zoom lens (with the maximum aperture of F2.0 at wide-angle end), a high-sensitivity, back-illuminated CMOS image sensor, and a new-generation imaging engine to deliver high-quality, low-noise images — even in the water, at night and indoors where the subject is poorly illuminated. Adding such outstanding features as –10°C cold resistance, dual shake reduction system, Full HD movie recording (1920 x 1080n pixels) and a high-performance, wide-frame 3.0-inch LCD monitor, the WG-3 GPS performs dependably and brilliantly in a wide variety of demanding outdoor scenes.
