The WG-10 is designed to make outdoor and underwater shooting simple, exciting and worry-free for everyone. Despite its compact, lightweight body, the WG-10 offers outstanding basic specifications to perform superbly and dependably under demanding outdoor conditions: waterproof to a depth of 10 meters and for up to two hours of continuous operation; shock resistant against a fall from a height of 1.5 meters; and cold resistant against temperatures as low as –10°C. It also features a host of advanced, creative functions, such as the PENTAX-original Digital Microscope mode that magnifies the subject and captures a microscopic world often unnoticeable with the naked eye in eye-catching images. The WG-10 is fully equipped to accommodate a broad range of applications, from outdoor shooting to everyday snapshots and business use.
The WG-10’s airtight body is not only waterproof to a depth of 10 meters and for up to two hours of continuous operation (equivalent to IPX8 or JIS Class 8 waterproof performance), but also shock-resistant, dustproof, cold-resistant, and crushproof to perform superbly and dependably in harsh, demanding outdoor conditions.
The WG-10 features an innovative Digital Microscope mode, which magnifies the subject on the LCD monitor for the observation and photography of a microscopic world often unnoticeable with the naked eye. Thanks to five LED Macro Lights positioned around the circumference of the lens barrel, the subject is illuminated more brightly and uniformly than in ambient light to facilitate macro shooting. In order to minimize camera shake and subject shake, its instant illumination enhance function allows for the use of a higher shutter speed by automatically raising the illumination level of the Macro Lights at the moment of shutter release. A macro stand is also included as a standard accessory to maintain a minimum focusing distance of one centimetre to the subject during extended observation and shooting.
In addition to super-high resolution assured by approximately 14.0 effective megapixels and a state-of-the-art imaging engine, the WG-10 also offers advanced image processing functions made possible by the latest super-resolution technology to deliver sharp, clear, high-resolution images. Because of this, the user can effortlessly produce sharp, high-resolution prints with well-depicted details, even when images are enlarged to poster size.
The WG-10’s HD movie recording function captures high-quality movie clips (1280 x 720 pixels, 16:9 proportions, 30 frames per second) with great ease. It also offers a variety of movie editing functions, such as extracting a still image from movie data, and inserting titles at the beginning and end of a movie clip. In addition, a micro-HDMI terminal (Type D) is provided on the camera body for simultaneous output of HD movie clips and sound to external devices.
The WG-10 comes equipped with a large, 2.7-inch colour LCD monitor with horizontally extended 16:9 proportions and approximately 230,000 dots. The PENTAX-original AR (Anti-Reflection) coating minimizes annoying glare and reflections to assure a sharp, clear on-screen image even under harsh sunshine.
Within its compact body, the WG-10 features a five-times optical zoom lens with a zoom coverage from 5mm to 25mm (equivalent to approx. 28mm wide angle to approx. 140mm medium telephoto in the 35mm format). This versatile zoom lens comes in handy for a wide variety of scenes and subjects, from wide-angle snapshots of breath taking scenery, to family/group gatherings and telephoto images.
