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.
