How to Use The Pentax WG-8 Digital Camera

Capture High-Resolution Images

Whatever adventure you embark on, the WG-8 is the perfect companion for capturing high-resolution images in challenging environments. This compact camera combines a 20MP back-illuminated CMOS sensor with a high-performance imaging engine to ensure fast readout and deliver an impressive ISO 6400 standard sensitivity. This high sensitivity increases the camera's ability to detect light, enabling the WG-8 to produce bright, well-exposed images even in dim environments. Thanks to the advanced processing functions enabled by super-resolution technology, images are sharp with low noise, even at higher sensitivity. The innovative Hand-held Night Snap mode also captures multiple images of a night time scene. It combines them into a single, blur-free composite image, ensuring high quality even in low-light conditions.

Get Closer with 5x Optical Zoom

The WG-8 benefits from a 28mm lens with 5x optical zoom to maximise versatility in different shooting scenarios. This camera’s optical zoom corresponds to approximately 28 mm to 140 mm in the 35 mm format, allowing users to flexibly switch from capturing landscapes and group shots to portraits and close-ups. The sophisticated lens design with 11 elements in 9 groups (including 5 aspherical) ensures sharp, clear images across the zoom range. For macro photography, users can get as close as one centimetre to their subject, capturing the unseen intricate details.

Record 4K Video

Movie mode records in H.264 format (3840 x 2160 pixels, 30 frames per second) and is perfect for documenting travel experiences, action scenes, or any event where video quality is paramount. Thanks to this upgrade, the WG-8 delivers detailed footage that users will want to re-watch time and time again.

Equipped with extensive shooting and editing functions that rival high-end cameras, the WG-8 helps to streamline your workflow. With various metering methods for precise autofocus and exposure and 18 scene programs tailored for different subjects, you can capture the perfect shot straight out of the camera. The WG-8's innovative depth-of-field composite mode and 12 creative digital filters also allow you to get creative without requiring extensive post-processing. Additionally, the convenience of two memory locations, accessible via the function dial, ensures quick and easy access to your favourite settings, saving you valuable time out in the field.

Optimise Your Shooting Experience
