Pentax Optio WG-1 GPS Reviews
TrustedReviews reviews the Pentax Optio WG-1 GPS and writes;
“the WG-1 certainly manages to stand out from the tough compact crowd. Image quality isn’t bad either, especially when used on Auto Picture mode. And while the zoom control can prove a bit fiddly and imprecise, it remains a fairly simple camera to operate overall. “
DCR reviews the Pentax Optio WG-1 GPS and writes;
“Default image quality out of the WG-1 is good as compact digitals go – possibly a little soft for my taste in the auto modes, but not bad overall. Colors are fairly accurate…If you’re in the market for a compact that can brave the elements while producing good images, the Pentax WG-1 series deserves serious consideration.”
