Product Description

Like a certain caped comic-book superhero, the ridiculously rugged Optio WG-2 GPS Kit Digital Camera can take whatever punishment you're in the mood to dish out. Waterproof to 40 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, GPS for geo-tagging 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 16-megapixel with ISO from 125-6400 camera that allows you to capture anything from detailed Super Macro shots to HD 1080p movies.

I own one of the earlier Pentax waterproof cameras (Optio W10) and it still works.

We decided to upgrade to the WG-2 GPS before our trip to Costa Rica. Prior to buying ours, my company purchased two of the WG-1 GPS cameras and I was able to use them a couple times in the field. I found that it took a really long time for the GPS to locate and was a little disappointed. Once we got the WG-2 GPS I was kind of shocked to see how fast the GPS would locate both in the US and in Costa Rica vs. my experience with the WG-1 GPS. I did not have a stop watch out but I can't remember waiting more than 15 seconds for the GPS to acquire.

We purchased the car charger that came with two extra batteries for around $20. One day we heavily used the Camera and took six 2 minute long videos and ended up going through two batteries. We took probably 20 pictures before our trip, over 1200 on our trip, and about 10 short videos. On our trip we used it snorkeling, ocean fishing, hiking, in the resort pools, zip lines, and whitewater rafting. Having the GPS for the whitewater rafting was pretty cool, using Picasa it placed all our photos on a Google map with little red location pins.

The underwater photos seems significantly better than any we shot with the old W10 but it might have just been clearer water or having more megapixels in this one vs. the 6 mp in the W10. The WG-2 also has the anti shake so that might have been why the pictures are better as well.

We found that the strap for the carabineer liked to slowly loosen I would recommend taking something like a small safety pin and pinning the excess strap to the main strap so it won't slide out. Ours never slid out but I had to shorten it multiple times on our vacation.

Great for backpacking and hiking. The design is perfect for what i'm using it for. I'm planning on taking it with me while hiking the AT. I've bought two more for my two sons who are going with me.

This is one of the best compact digital cameras I have ever owned. It has a ton of features (many I haven't even tried yet). The WG II is simple to use and takes clean, crisp pictures and video. It will continue to impress me as I use more of the types of photos I take. Great value!

While I haven't tested out all the options available on the camera, and I'm not sure I'll be intentionally testing its shock proof capabilities, but it's definitely a good fit for anyone who goes camping, hunting, or fishing often. Couple of things I noticed on this camera compared to my D80 is that the battery dies pretty fast (with gps enabled) and the images are not as sharp as I would like them to be when viewed on computer screen at 100% zoom.
