Pentax Optio WG-1 and WG-1 GPS

Pentax has announced a new rugged camera model, the WG-1, and a GPS-capable version, aptly named the WG-1 GPS.

The new camera sports a 14MP sensor, 5x optical zoom (28-140mm equivalent), 720p HD video capture, and a 2.7-inch LCD.  Of course, as a rugged model, the WG-1 covers the standard “rugged” specs:  waterproof to 33 feet, shockproof to 5 feet, freezeproof to 14-degrees F and dustproof.

The WG-1 carries a retail price tag of $349.95, while the GPS-enabled model runs $399.95.  Both models should be available in April.  Check availability for the WG-1 at
