Pentax Optio WG-2 Digital Camera Review$399.95
Video quality is average for a 1080i-shooting point-and-shoot. We noticed trailing, stuttering, and color-bleed in our motion test, but not at unusual levels. Artifacting was the biggest issue, but nothing out of the ordinary. More on how CamcorderInfo tests motion.
Video was surprisingly sharp for a camera with mediocre still-photo sharpness. We measured 475 horizontal and 400 vertical lw/ph in bright light. More on how CamcorderInfo tests video sharpness.
In low light, we measured 375 horizontal and 375 vertical lw/ph—not much of a dropoff.
Low Light Sensitivity
Low light sensitivity also surprised us, only dropping below our acceptable threshold at 8 lux—it's not uncommon to see point-and-shoots fail to pass 30 lux.
