Pentax Optio WG-1

The advantage a GPS-enabled camera is that you can take it anywhere and it’ll log the location of photos as you shoot. If you’d like to literally be able to take your camera anywhere, the new Pentax Optio WG-1 might do the trick. A 14MP sensor and 5X internal optical zoom let you capture solid stills as well as 720P video, and it’s built to take punishment along the way. The rugged housing is shockproof to withstand a 5-foot drop, crushproof under as much as 220 lbs of force, it can withstand temperatures as low as 14°F, and it’ll function while submerged as deep as 33 feet underwater. Available for pre-order today with ($400) or without ($350) the GPS feature.
