New Pentax WG-2 Possibly S**t Proof 0

Based on a photo posted by Pentax Imaging, the Pentax Optio WG-2 has reached new levels of, well, crap – only in a good way? I’m rarely lost for words but this one’s got me.

The camera is one of Pentax’s rugged offerings that comes with the usual plethora of “proofs.” It’s waterproof, dustproof, freeze proof, and drop-proof (aka shock resistant); but rather than stopping there, the Pentax Imaging photo seems to show the camera as also being s**t proof.

I suppose the picture doesn’t have to be interpreted that way, after all I’m sure that was their interpretation of mud; but whether or not Pentax cries “it’s not what it looks like!?” Photo Rumors had it right when they asked “What Were They Thinking?”

Regardless of their intention, this little incident will offer some much needed comic relief for those down $4,600 to Sigma or disappointed with the delayed D800E ship date.

And if a s**t proof camera isn’t enough of a balm for your troubles, make sure to stop by this month’s giveaway and enter to win a new PocketWizard Plus III.
