The WG-3 looks like a walkie-talkie. And if all we see at CP+ are point and shoots, I want my money back

I must say I prefer the "understatement design" of my W10 to this

Anyway, Photorumors write as if this is all they have for CP+. That would be sad. I expect no less than to at least show prototypes of "645 D II" and "K-3" (24mp APS-C).

Do you out there have any more infirmation about the announced DA* Zoom 20-80mm? Should we expect it at CP+? Will it be 2.8 or slower?

This seems to be from this source.
CP+???????????????????????WG??????? - ????info

They make a point of saying that this is only a list of the compact cameras and that it is not a comprehensive list of what will be released.

mx-1, efina, and now these guys. i hope there is a interchangeable camera next. i wont complain yet if there aren't any until end of this year though, as long as a couple of new lenses and the flash gets released.

Since all cell phones already come with cameras, Pentax must have realized that there is an untapped market, to put cameras into walkie-talkies.

IMO less expensive version: 33 feet for WG10 but 45 feet for WG-III (as printe'd on the bodies).
And no GPS option for WG10.

Another difference is that the WG-3 models have the SR symbol on them, so I suppose that means they have sensor shift stabilisation.

What's that symbol on the left of the lens of the middle model? The lower model says "45ft" there.

As crazy as that is, it might not be a bad idea to integrate a rugged GPS equipped camera like this with a two way radio for hikers and such out in the wilderness with sketchy cell phone service and all.

I think it's the IRsimple "sharing technology" thingy again. Gotta love the digital clock built into the face of that middle one, though!
