16 megapixel backlit CMOS sensor and new-generation Imaging Engine


  • A Backlit 16 megapixel CMOS sensor, coupled with the new-generation imaging engine delivers a top sensitivity of ISO 6400 with low-noise characteristics and super-high resolution imaging with no compromise in image quality, color accuracy, and noise performance in any lighting condition, underwater and in the field.




Waterproof to 45 feet


  • PENTAX’s 15th generation waterproof digital compact camera has intensified ‘tough’ as the further enhanced the watertight construction allows for a depth of 45 feet—swim in the pool, snorkel and dive in the ocean, kayak river rapids, surf the big waves or get caught in a downpour, all the while capturing beautiful photography and HD video for up to two hours of continuous operation.






  • Heavy-duty and dependable in harsh, demanding conditions, the crushproof construction withstands weights up to 220 LBF (pound-force), preventing from damage at the bottom of a backpack, or when accidentally wedged between a body and a solid object.






  • The dustproof design protects the camera from any dry, dusty environments your adventures may take you—ensuring clear, clean images at sandy beaches and in windy desert storms.




Advanced GPS functions & Wireless Recharging in GPS models


  • Select GPS models come equipped with a sophisticated GPS module, which automatically records position data and travel log data onto captured images, and adjusts the built-in clock to local time. Find your way, check your direction, altitude, pressure and water depth with the camera’s digital compass and gauges right on the front of the unit. Get up and go quickly with the added ease of wireless recharging, also incorporated in the GPS model.




Full 1080p30 HD video recording, h.264 compression


  • Capture full HD video in widescreen 1080p resolution (1920x1080) with efficient, high quality h.264 compression at 30 frames per second. Also featuring a high-speed camera function for slow-motion playback of captured movie clips and a fast-forward movie function. A micro-HDMI terminal is also provided on the camera body for simultaneous output of movie clips and sound to external devises.




PENTAX Sensor–Shift Shake Reduction system


  • The triple shake reduction system combines an image-sensor-shift-type SR (Shake Reduction) mechanism with the digital Pixel Track and high ISO Shake Reduction modes to more effectively protect shake-prone images and low light photography for incredibly sharp blur-free images. Keep your memories vibrant—enjoy the reliability of stunning sunsets, and always-sharp adventures with the PENTAX SR system.






  • The shockproof, ruggedized design protects from drops up to 6.6 feet, ensuring stable operation during rigorous outdoor activity or for life’s everyday mishaps—perfect for anyone, whether you’re a mountain climber or a family with small children.






  • Coldproof to sub-freezing temperatures of minus 14 degrees F (10 degrees C) making the WG-3 ideal for use in cold, snowy, wet conditions from skiing to snowmobiling, snowshoeing to sledding, or just building a snowman in the front yard.




Faster F 2.0 aperture with a 4X Optical Zoom


  • The newly designed optical 4X zoom lens offers a high-performance, large aperture of F2.0 at its widest angle to capture bright imagery no matter what the lighting condition, even in dim underwater conditions—all the while offering a complete range of shots from wide-angle to telephoto (25mm-100mm equivalent in 35mm format) for everyday and extreme photography. The camera’s Intelligent Zoom (digital) function also extends the range even further to approximately 28.8 times to cover the focal length to a 720mm super-telephoto (in 35mm format), to capture extra-high magnification images, such as wildlife, without compromising image quality.




Six LED Macro Lights to assist in close-up shooting


  • Capture the tiniest details while the positioning of six LED Macro Lights around the circumference of the lens barrel allows for brighter, uniform illumination on a subject when the Digital Microscope mode is selected—perfect for insects, flowers, nature and still-life photography.




3 inch High resolution LCD Screen with Anti-Reflection


  • An extra-large, high-resolution 3 inch color LCD monitor with horizontally extended 16:9 proportions, and approximately 460,000 dots, offers beautiful capture and playback— while the PENTAX-original AR (Anti-reflection) coating assures clear, glare-free images on-screen, even in harsh sunlight. Its wide-view design offers a clear view from approximately 170 degrees, making it useful in low and high angle shooting.
