An all-weather outdoor camera with superb waterproof performance



The WG-1000 offers advantages that smartphones and many cameras do not - it can also be used in conditions where it gets really rough and wet. Many people know the situation when they have to concentrate fully on their sport, such as canoeing or climbing, but still want to capture these exciting moments in the picture. This is where the WG-1000 comes into its own.



A solid, all-weather body for protection against dust and water

The PENTAX WG-1000 has a reliable all-weather housing that is waterproof (JIS Class 8) to a depth of 15 metres and can be operated continuously for up to one hour; it is dustproof (JIS Class 6) against dirt and stains and shockproof* even against falls from a height of up to two metres. Thanks to this robust construction, the WG-1000 can be used for a wide range of activities, even in harsh, demanding conditions, and even for underwater shooting. A special feature opens up further usage options.


Sharp, clear images

 The WG-1000 features a back-illuminated CMOS image sensor with approximately 16.35 effective megapixels and outstanding light reception efficiency to deliver sharp, clear, high-resolution images.



4x optical zoom lens

  Within its compact, lightweight body, it features a four-times optical zoom lens with a focal-length coverage from 4.9 mm to 19.6mm (equivalent to approx. 27mm to 108mm in the 35mm format) to accommodate a wide range of applications. When coupled with its Digital Zoom function, you can extend the zoom range by approximately 24 times.



Dependable protection against ethanol, sodium hypochlorite and chlorine dioxide solutions

Since the WG-1000 can be safely sterilized with solutions containing ethanol, sodium hypochlorite (approved as a disinfectant of food additives) or chlorine dioxide, you can use it at medical facilities and production lines.
