As part of the CP+ 2013 show in Japan, Pentax has announced three new cameras that should be available for purchase beginning in March. All three are rugged fixed lens cameras that can survive short falls and can work underwater.
- WG-3 GPS. The WG-3 (MSRP $300) is a tough camera that works in up to 45 feet of water depth.
- WG-3 GPS. This camera (pictured here, $350) is similar to the WG-3, but the WG-3 GPS offers wireless charging of the battery, built-in GPS, and support for Wi-Fi Eye-Fi memory cards.
- WG-10. The WG-10 ($180) offers minimal tough capabilities along with a 5X optical zoom lens.
These WG-3 models are upgrades to the Pentax WG-2 cameras that were announced almost exactly a year ago and the WG-1 cameras announced almost exactly two years ago. I liked the look of each of the previous versions of this family of cameras, and the WG-3 cameras appear to continue that cool design.
