The Optio WG-2 / Optio WG-2 GPS is the perfect choice for active photographers who shoot pictures in demanding conditions. It can be used underwater continuously for up to 2 hours at a depth of up to 12m (40ft). Its crushproof construction can withstand weights up to 100 KGF (220 LBF) and shockproof design protects it against drops of 1.5m (5ft). It also offers remarkable dustproof performance to protect the camera from dry, dusty environments and exceptional cold-resistant performance for reliable operation at temperatures as low as -10°C (14°F). All these features make the Optio WG2-GPS the ideal imaging partner in harsh, demanding shooting conditions.
Optio WG-2 / Optio WG-2 GPS equipped with a 16.0 megapixel back-illuminated CMOS image sensor, which offers much lower noise even when camera is set to higher sensitivities. The new imaging engine applies the latest super-resolution technology to its image processing operations to assure sharp, clear, high-resolution images.
The 5X optical zoom lens covering focal lengths from 28mm wide angle to 140mm telephoto. Thanks to this versatile zoom lens, the camera captures beautiful, lively pictures in a wide range of subjects and scenes — from spectacular landscapes to family/group shots in a confined space. The tough mineral crystal cover protects internal lens elements, and an easy-to-clean SP coating helps water sheet off the optical surface, minimizing blur due to water droplets.
Camera's triple anti-shake protection to prevent different types of camera shake: Pixel Track SR mode effectively compensates for camera shake during still-image shooting digitally without increasing image noise, Digital SR mode automatically raises the sensitivity up to ISO 6400 under poor-lighting conditions and the Movie SR mode prevents blurry images by effectively minimizing camera shake through the use of exclusive software.
Combining a macro shooting capability from as close as 1cm away with its 6 LED Macro Lighting and unique Macro Stand, the Digital Microscope mode delivers magnified sharp pictures of even the smallest subjects, like insects, or the veins of a leaf. With the Macro Lights, the user can clearly see a magnified view of the microscopic world often unnoticeable with the naked eye on the camera's LCD monitor and effortlessly capture it in eye-catching images. Its instant illumination enhance function, which automatically raises the illumination level of the LED Macro Lights at the moment of shutter release, has also been upgraded to minimize camera shake and subject shake. In addition, the Macro Lights provide a Self-Portrait Assist mode to check if the subject's face is safely captured within the picture frame using the blink of an LED lamp; and a new LED lighting mode to use the Macro Lights as a lighting device in the dark.
Optio WG-2 / Optio WG-2 GPS features a Large 3-inch 460,000 dots 16:9 widescreen LCD. A special AR (Anti-Reflection) coating cuts the glare of external light and minimizes reflections, making it easy to observe the subject, monitor recorded images and view on-screen menus, even in bright sunlight. While its wide-view design offers a clear view of the monitor from approximately 170 degrees horizontally and vertically, making it particularly useful in low and high angle shooting.
The Optio WG2-GPS / Optio WG-2 GPS offers the Full HD movie recording function employing the H.264 recording format, allowing the user to capture high-quality, extended movie clips in Full HD 1080p video at 30 FPS. It also features a high-speed camera function for slow-motion playback of captured movie clips and an interval movie function to simplify advanced movie-recording techniques. The camera also has a micro-HDMI micro terminal for output of Full HD movie clips and sound to external devices.
Optio WG2-GPS / Optio WG-2 GPS features Auto Picture mode to automatically select the most appropriate shooting mode from 16 different scene modes.
Capture perfect portraits with high-speed Face Detection technology, including Smile Capture and Blink Detection functions, as well as exposure modes specifically designed for portrait photography.
Use the Digital Wide mode to compose an extra-wide-angle picture (equivalent to 21mm wide angle) from two separate images. The Extended dynamic range functions help bring out extra detail in shadow and/or highlight areas of an image to prevent exposure clipping.
The Optio WG2 GPS comes equipped with an upgraded GPS module. Not only does it shorten the time lag before the start of GPS operation, but it also greatly extends the operating life of the log function. This function automatically creates log data and stores it as a KML-format file onto the memory card by simply carrying the camera, user can keep accurate track of the movement during outdoor shooting, and display it later on the computer using various online services such as Google Earth.
Optio WG-2 GPS allows the user to record position data when shooting still images and take advantage of various geo-tagging applications and services such as Google Maps. The GPS also corrects the built-in clock automatically to match local time of a particular shooting location.
