Pentax unveils a camera that’s built to be abused

If you’re the kind of person that likes to do extreme outdoor activities, you probably like to document such things. However, you’re probably not going to want to bring your favorite point-and-shoot when you go rock climbing or white water rafting. Instead you need a camera that’s just as rugged as you are. The new Pentax Optio WG-1 might be what you’re looking for.

This camera was built to withstand drops of up to 5 feet, crushing forces of 22lbs, cold weather up to -10 degrees and 33 feet of water. It will shoot still images at 14-megapixels and 720p videos at 30fps. You can even have a GPS installed for an extra $50 so that you’ll know exactly where your images were shot. The camera will be launching in April for a price of $350.
