Pentax Optio WG-1 GPS First Look

by Reads (21)

Image quality seems average-to-good, and colors are largely correct. The WG-1 acquires focus in good conditions in what seems like average compact digital time, and shutter lag seems average as well. The LCD monitor was overwhelmed by direct sunlight coming from behind at a 9AM beach shoot the first time out with the camera – a tough situation to be sure, but also a concern for a camera that will likely be used outdoors much of the time.

We’ll see how the monitor situation plays out over the course of the review period. And that course is going to take us on a drive from California to Florida and back again. Along the way we’ll pass through Texas BBQ country and New Orleans on our way to the Kennedy Space Center for the April 29 launch of space shuttle Endeavor, down to Key West and back through the Everglades and west coast of Florida on the way home. We’ll have a complete review of the WG-1 sometime during this trek, which is scheduled to wrap up around mid-May.
