PENTAX Optio WG-2

Zak: Hey. I'm here at Massanutten waterpark today in Virginia checking out the Pentax Optio WG-2, crushproof, cold proof, waterproof, shockproof, adventure-proof camera. Take it surfing, take it skiing, take it mountain climbing, take it underwater — it'll go wherever you want it to.

One of my favorite things about it actually is it has a really great close-up mode with these little lights around the outside of the lens that light up and light up your subject. You can get as close as one centimeter away and take pictures with it — a lot of fun.

It also shoots HD movies. It's got great face detection for when you want to get some low-angle shots of your kids, and it's a fantastic overall camera. And of course you can beat it up pretty well.

So if you have any questions about cameras like this or the Optio WG-2 just give us a call.
