They also feature a newly designed, large-aperture, four-times optical zoom lens, 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 and a high-performance, wide-frame 3.0-inch LCD monitor, the WG-3 GPS perform dependably and brilliantly in a wide variety of demanding outdoor scenes. The PENTAX WG-3 GPS model also features advanced GPS functions to record position data and travel log data onto captured images - along with a pressure/altitude/depth gauge, a digital compass and a wireless recharging system - to facilitate outdoor shooting.

    Product Features

    • Heavy-duty construction for underwater shooting
      By further enhancing the watertight capability of the camera body, PENTAX has upgraded the WG-3 GPS's underwater performance to 14 meters, and for up to two hours of continuous operation. These cameras are also designed to be highly shock-resistant, dustproof, cold-resistant, and crushproof. All these features make the WG-3 GPS dependable, heavy-duty imaging partners in harsh, demanding outdoor conditions.
    • 4X optical zoom lens with maximum aperture of F2.0 and wide-angle coverage
      The newly designed optical zoom lens offers a maximum aperture of F2.0 to capture bright, clear images with minimal noise, even under dimly lit underwater conditions. With its four-time zoom coverage, this versatile zoom lens accommodates a wide range of applications - from macro shooting of flowers to wide-angle shooting of spectacular landscapes. The camera's Intelligent Zoom function also extends the zoom range to cover the focal length, super-telephoto lens to capture extra-high-magnification images without compromising image quality.
    • High-performance, back-illuminated CMOS image sensor
      WG-3 GPS come equipped with a state-of-the-art, back-illuminated CMOS image sensor, which is superior in high-sensitivity and low-noise characteristics to conventional sensors and assures high-speed readout of image data signals. Coupled with a new-generation imaging engine, this image sensor delivers a top sensitivity of ISO 6400 and super-high-resolution images with 16.0 effective megapixels. These models also provide advanced image processing functions made possible by the latest super-resolution technology to assure sharp and clear images. They even offer such innovative features as a Handheld Night Snap mode, which automatically captures four images of the same scene and produces a single blur-free, composite image from them.
    • Dual anti-shake protection for sharp, blur-free images
      WG-3 GPS's dual shake reduction system combines an image-sensor-shift-type Shake Reduction mechanism with a Digital SR mode to more effectively compensate for the adverse effects of camera shake and subject shake in shake-prone conditions, such as when capturing poorly lit subject with ambient light only, or when shooting sunset scenes.
    • Six LED Macro Lights to assist close-up shooting
      By positioning six LED Macro Lights around the circumference of the lens barrel for macro shooting, the WG-3 GPS provides brighter, more uniform illumination on the subject when the Digital Microscope mode is selected. With the Macro Lights, the user can clearly see a magnified view of a microscopic world often unnoticeable with the naked eye on the camera's LCD monitor and effortlessly capture eye-catching images. In order to minimize camera shake, and subject shake, the instant illumination enhance function allows for the use of a higher shutter speed by automatically raising the illumination level of the Macro Lights at the moment of shutter release. In addition, the Macro Lights can provide other user-friendly features, such as a Self-Portrait Assist mode to check if the subject's face is safely captured within the picture frame using the blink of an LED lamp, and a LED lighting mode to use the Macro Lights as a lighting device in the dark.
    • Full HD movie recording for extended shooting of high-quality movies
      WG-3 GPS provides Full HD movie recording employing the H.264 recording format, allowing the user to capture high-quality, extended movie clips at a frame rate of 30 frames per second. They also feature a high-speed camera function for slow-motion playback of captured movie clips and a fast-forward movie function to simplify creative movie techniques. A micro-HDMI terminal is also provided on their camera body for simultaneous output of Full HD movie clips and sound to external devices.
    • Extra-large, high-resolution, wide-frame 3.0-inch LCD monitor
      These WG-series models incorporate an extra-large, high-resolution 3.0-inch color LCD monitor with horizontally extended 16:9 proportions. The PENTAX-original Anti-Reflection coating minimizes annoying glare and reflections to assure a sharp, clear on-screen image even under harsh sunshine, while its wide-view design offers a clear view of the monitor from approximately 170 degrees horizontally and vertically, making it particularly useful in low and high angle shooting.
    • Advanced GPS functions and pressure/altitude/depth gauge to facilitate outdoor shooting
      The WG-3 GPS comes equipped with a sophisticated GPS module, which automatically records position data and travel log data onto captured images and adjusts the built-in clock to local time. Thanks to newly incorporated pressure sensor and digital compass, the user can not only check the pressure, altitude/underwater depth and direction of a shooting location, but also record such data onto captured images for future reference.
    • Wireless recharging
      The WG-3 GPS is compatible with the wireless Qi recharging system, which automatically recharges the built-in battery simply by placing the camera on a Qi-compatible commercial wireless recharger. Since this system eliminates the need to open and close the battery chamber cover, it greatly reduces the risk of foreign substances such as sand and dust clinging to special water seals installed in the cover.
