Introducing the PENTAX WG-8: Your Ultimate All-Weather Digital Camera

Built to withstand the toughest conditions, the PENTAX WG-8 is your go-to compact camera for capturing stunning shots in any environment, including underwater and in the rain. Its robust, airtight body is waterproof down to 20 meters for up to two hours, dustproof, shockproof from falls up to 2.1 meters, crushproof under weights up to 100kg, and freeze-resistant to -10°C. This heavy-duty construction ensures the WG-8 performs reliably in extreme conditions, whether you're on a snowy mountain or exploring underwater realms.

Capture sharp, high-resolution images with the WG-8’s 20-megapixel back-illuminated CMOS sensor. This advanced sensor, paired with a high-performance imaging engine, delivers detailed, low-noise photos with a high dynamic range, ensuring your images look great even when cropped and enlarged.

The WG-8 features a versatile 5X optical zoom lens, covering wide-angle to telephoto ranges (28mm to 140mm in 35mm format). This allows you to shoot everything from expansive landscapes to distant subjects with ease.

Record your adventures in stunning 4K resolution. The WG-8 supports 4K movie recording (3840 x 2160 pixels) and includes advanced stabilization features like Movie SR (Shake Reduction) and Movie SR+ for HD and Full HD modes, ensuring smooth, shake-free videos.
