Pentax Optio WG-1 GPS

The Kodak Optio WG-1 GPS is aimed at you if you are looking for a digital camera that you can take on holiday or if you are planning on travelling. This is because the Optio WG-1 GPS can cope with the occasional bump and bruise. Among its many features is one that allows you to tag your photos with GPS positioning so that you can tell exactly where in the world you were when a photo was taken.

In addition to this feature there are four separate features that help to make the Optio WG-1 GPS a robust camera that can stand up to some rough handling that can occur when you are travelling. To start with it can cope with drops of up to 1.5m. It is also crushproof to weights of 100kg. You can use the Optio WG-1 GPS in water to depths of 10m whilst the Optio WG-1 GPS can also cope with cold temperatures down to -10 degrees centigrade.

More standard features include 14 megapixels and a 5x zoom lens. You can shoot High Definition movies and there is a 2.7 inch LCD screen for composing your photos and accessing the menu system.

Another feature worth mentioning is the macro mode where the Optio WG-1 GPS is able to focus from 1cm away from your subject. The problem digital cameras have with such close positioning is that they can block out light. To get round this problem Pentax have added five lights around the lens that are activated in macro mode.

Aside from other cameras in this series the Optio WG-1 GPS also looks very different to the typical digital camera. It is available in black and green.
