Pentax's WG-1 is the company's latest rugged camera, a line that has been hit or miss in the past. Last year's W90 was a hit for the most part, so this should be a solid tough-guy. Specs are pretty average for the class, with a 5x zoom, 720p HD video, and a 2.7-inch LCD. It's waterproof to a depth of 33ft and shockproof from 5 feet, as well as dustproof and freezeproof. For a slightly more exciting take on the WG-1, take a look at the WG-1 GPS, which -- you guessed it -- adds a GPS unit into the mix for geo-tagging abilities.
