2011 Model No Longer Available
Pentax Optio WG-1 GPS Kit Digital Camera - 2011 BCS
Feeling sadistic? It doesn't matter; the ridiculously rugged Option WG-1 GPS Kit Digital Camera can take whatever punishment you're in the mood to dish out. Waterproof to 33 feet (so you can shoot underwater), shockproof from up to a 5 foot drop, crush-proof to withstand up to 100KG of force, cold-proof to 14F, and dust-proof, this is one point-and-shoot you're going to have to work hard to destroy. Also tough to beat: advanced features in this high-res 14-megapixel camera that allow you to capture anything from detailed Super Macro shots to HD movies.
- Quick 1.3 second power-up time and 0.03 shutter lag mean you'll be ready to get the shot with a moment's notice
- Digital Microscope mode with LED lens lighting captures subjects as near as 1cm from the camera
- Shoot HD video in widescreen 720p at 30 frames per second and use the movie edit function for basic, on-the-fly editing in-camera
- Extra-wide LCD monitor is treated with anti-reflective coating to make recording easier
- 5X zoom covers focal lengths from 5mm to 25mm, allowing you to shoot anything from spectacular landscapes to tightly framed snapshots
- Face-detection and pet-detection modes zero in on the faces of your loved ones to ensure sharp focus
- Triple anti-shake protection prevents different kinds of camera shake so you can nail crisp, clear shots even if you're jostled or on an unstable surface
- Built-in flash with auto, on, off, and red-eye modes allows you to fill in shadowy areas or shoot in the dark with an effective area of 13 feet (3.9m) at wide angle to 8.2 feet (2.5m) shooting zoomed
- New GPS function allows you to record where you took your photo and later track your movements during an outdoor shoot on your PC (Windows only)
- HDMI port lets you play back your images on your high-def TV
- Custom image modes include black and white, sepia, toy camera, retro, high contrast, starburst, soft, fisheye, and more
- Compatible with SD, SDHC, and SDXC media (not included)
- Comes with battery, charger, strap, carabiner strap, macro stand, USB cable, AV cable, and software CD

cleansnipe.com advertised this for $209, then it says $297 when you click to buy it...frustrating AND misleading. FAIL.
By: STFU and move out.
