Pentax WG-10 waterproof digital camera arrives for late winter dips
As the temperatures begin slowly rise and winter sees itself fading into oblivion we are quite sure that the waters will gradually seem more tempting. And also, the underwater thrill of photography, many a times, at the cost of expensive gadget damages. So Pentax has introduced the WG-10 waterproof camera, which also doubles up as a powerful shock-proof shooter. This makes it stronger and more durable than most of its counterparts. Additionally, it is compact, lightweight and offers enough basic specifications to give an amateur photographer better underwater thrills. It can reach depths of 33 feet (10 meters) and can survive drops from 5 feet (1.5 meters). It can also work fine in temperatures as low as 14 degrees Fahrenheit. So maybe you wouldn’t have to wait for winter to end after all.
Other features include 100 kg crush-proof tested solidness (JIS Class 6 tested), 2 hours continuous battery use, digital microscope, a 2.7-inch LCD, a 28mm wide-angle lens, 5x optical zoom and 6.7x digital zoom, 14-megapixels CCD sensor, ISO ranges from 80 to 6400, and 720p HD video recording. It’s expected well in summer though, arriving in April for a little under $180.
