Sturdy cameras like Pentax WG-3 and WG-10 are what you might need if you are planning to go on a hike where you are sure your expensive cameras will not be able to handle the heat, dust, falls and water. Pentax is known for its premium grade cameras that are long lasting with amazing picture quality.

Though WG-3 and WG-10 look ugly, they sure are very practical to use and will serve the purpose of taking great pictures without fearing for their loss or untimely death in an unfriendly environment. WG-3 comes with a 16 megapixel CMOS sensor and a 3 inch LCD display. It is waterproof up to 14 feet and is shockproof till 2 meters drop. The WG-3 can also withstand extreme heat and cold. WG-10 is an improvised version of the WG-1, and both WG-3 and WG-10 are rugged, sturdy and very advanced.

These are the kinds of cameras that you would want to carry if you are going to a mountain trail where you know there is going to be streams, puddles, extreme cold and a lot of falls. Of course, these are also the trails where you can take pictures of breathtaking scenery and upload across social media so that all your contacts can gloss over your pictures that were taken in seemingly impossible conditions. The cameras will be available for purchase in April and can be great gifts for summer, if any of your friends or family members are going on a trip to a difficult locale.
