Pentax WG-5 GPS Digital Camera
Digital Camera Description
The Pentax WG-5 GPS is a Compact Digital Camera with a 1/2.3" sensor. Its 16 Megapixels CMOS sensor offers an ISO 125-6400 sensitivity range which is expandable to ISO 125-6400. This makes it possible to shoot hand-held in relatively low-light. With 16 MP of resolution, sharp prints are possible up to at 240 DPI.
A builtin Image Stabilization mechanism allows the Pentax WG-5 GPS to compensate for camera shake.
This camera features a mechanic shutter that can expose for 1/2000 to 4s. With a fastest shutter-speed of 1/2000, fast action can easily be frozen. Given that is does not support very slow shutter-speeds, this camera is unsuitable for night photography.
The Pentax WG-5 GPS features a 9-point Contrast-Detect AF system. Autofocus can continuously adjust according to subject distance. A Real-Time Autofocus Tracking System allows focus to follow a moving subject within the frame. Manual Focus is also available.
The Pentax WG-5 GPS is waterproof to a 14 meter depth for a maximum of 120 minutes. The weatherproof construction of this digital camera protects it against adverse weather, dust and moisture. This particular model is also freezeproof down to -10C. There is no viewfinder on the Pentax WG-5 GPS and no provision to add one.
