After its announcement of a new DIL camera last week, Pentax has made a few more digital camera announcements this week, including two new "tough" cameras.
The Pentax WG-2 (pictured here) and the WG-2 GPS both offer 16MP of resolution in addition to strong waterproof capabilities. Both units will be available in March, beginning at $350.
In addition, the company made a few other announcements.
- Pentax will offer a limited silver edition of its Pentax Q DIL camera, which I reviewed recently. Only 1,600 silver units will be available, but Pentax offered no other information.
- Pentax has announced tethering software for the Pentax 645D medium format camera, allowing you to run it from a computer.
- Pentax has announced six new lenses for its DSLR camera, Q DIL camera, and medium format cameras, including a 50mm f/1.8 prime lens.
- Pentax Ricoh will absorb the Ricoh camera business. Ricoh purchased Pentax in 2011, creating the Pentax Ricoh division to handle photography and maintain the Pentax brand.
