  • Conclusion: The cute-but-tough Pentax Optio WG-1 is built to withstand the elements, its image and video quality, though, aren't up to par with some competitors.
  • Pros: Small build for a ruggedized camera. Good low-light performance.
  • Cons: Our first test camera experienced some water damage. Slow recycle times. Dated, complicated interface.

The Pentax Optio WG-1 GPS; best in its class

Examiner
1 September 2011
  • Excerpt: Just in time for the end of summer, I recently got a hold of the Pentax Optio WG-1 GPS waterproof, drop and shock resistant camera. I will preface this by saying that I have reviewed similar products from Panasonic, Casio and Olympus, and BY FAR, the Pentax appears to be the best camera in its class. Out of the box, it took 2 hours to fully charge the battery.

  • Excerpt: The Pentax Optio WG-1 GPS ($399) is a compact, rugged camera that is designed to be outside in the elements. It's waterproof to 33 feet, shockproof from 5 feet, crushproof to 220 lbs, and freezeproof to 14F. The WG-1 looks like it means business, with a design that's the polar opposite of your typical compact camera. The WG-1 is also equipped with a built-in GPS, so you'll know exactly where you took the photo of your friend falling off his snowboard.

Pentax WG1-GPS

  • Summary: A waterproof camera that can by the aid of GPS tell you where you were when you took the image or movie. I did not get a chance to test if the two features worked together; in fact the only waterproof tests were in my bath.
