in Customer Rewards when you buy this item today

With Pre-Order, you can purchase the latest items added to our store in advance of them arriving with us.

Your Pre-Order is prioritised (at no additional charge); meaning that as soon as the product arrives with us, we can wrap it straight back up; ready for collection via Click & Collect or despatch to you — it often never even hits the stock room shelves!


With Pre-Launch, the date when we expect to receive the product ourselves is still a little too hazy to be confident in accepting Pre-Orders.

So, instead, you can submit your email address against the item you are interested in and we will email you as soon as stock arrives on the system.

For items which cannot ordinarily be returned by post, we will at your request use our reasonable endeavours to arrange a courier to collect the goods; the estimated maximum cost of this would be £15 per item. (See below in relation to the return of faulty goods.)

All returns are subject to the following conditions, except where the goods are faulty or incorrectly described on the Web Site.
  • Your item is complete and in 'as new' saleable condition:

  • Any use of the product is relative to examining it, and ensuring it suits your needs. The extent to which you can handle the goods is the same as it would be if you were assessing them in a shop. SRS Microsystems Ltd does not sell products on a trial basis.

  • Software, memory cards and DVDs can only be accepted if still sealed. This policy is to avoid any potential breach of the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act (CDPA) 1988.

However, we can, choose the solution that is more proportionate or practical for us. In the majority of cases, we will send an item for repair in the first instance. If the repair is unsuccessful, you can then claim a replacement or a full refund. Alternatively we will seek to agree a price reduction with you if you wish to keep the product.
  • After six months, unless you can demonstrate that the fault was present at the time of original delivery or we have previously arranged a repair and this has failed to resolve the fault, our liability will be limited to providing you with reasonable support to make a claim under the manufacturer’s warranty, where applicable.
In all cases we reserve the right to inspect the product and verify the fault and, if no fault is found, return the product to you. In these circumstances, no refund will be processed until the returned goods have been received by us and an appraisal made as to any fault. This promise does not cover faults caused by accident, neglect, misuse or normal wear and tear.

Any refund due to a fault or other defect will include a refund of the delivery charge. In such circumstances we will also pay for your costs of returning the goods (up to £10 in the UK and £20 outside the UK). Beyond six months you will be responsible for covering the costs of returning the goods (unless you have been able to establish that the goods were defective at the time of original delivery, in which case we will reimburse your costs as set out above). We strongly recommend you use an insured method such as Royal Mail Special Delivery. Replacement goods are sent by standard delivery only (i.e. premium services are not available).

Pentax WG-8 Digital Camera in Black - PRE-ORDER DEPOSIT









The PENTAX WG-8 is the top model in PENTAX's Tough product group and shines with a number of interesting features. In addition to a back-illuminated 1/2.3" CMOS sensor with 20 MP, the compact and equally lightweight housing offers a special stability that can cope with almost any adventure - even dives to a depth of 20 metres.

The camera has a zoom range from 28 to 140 mm (equivalent in the 35 mm format) and also demonstrates its qualities for school, research and work. A special ring light in combination with a macro distance is able to show even the smallest things on a large scale, and with the webcam function, this can be shared in a small circle or with the whole world.

High-quality, high-resolution images
Combining a state-of-the-art back-illuminated 1/2.3” CMOS image sensor (which provides excellent high-sensitivity, low-noise characteristics, and assures high-speed readout of image data signals) with a high-performance imaging engine, the WG-8 delivers a top sensitivity of ISO 6400 and super-high-resolution images with approximately 20 effective megapixels. It also provides advanced image processing functions, made possible by the super-resolution technology, to ensure sharp, clear, high-resolution images. It even provides such innovative functions as a Hand-held Night Snap mode, which automatically captures several images of the same nighttime scene and produces a single, blur-free composite image from them.

Five-times optical zoom lens with 28mm wide-angle coverage
Alongside the sensor, the lens is an elementary component of a camera. And so the fivefold zoom lens of the PENTAX WG-8 offers an optical zoom range of 5 mm to 25 mm with a sophisticated design consisting of 11 elements (including 5 aspherical) in 9 groups. The zoom range, which corresponds to approximately 28 mm to 140 mm in 35 mm format, allows users a wide range of applications, from exciting close-ups from a distance of just one centimetre to expansive landscape shots, to exciting portraits or nature shots in the telephoto range.

In addition to this high-quality optical zoom, the PENTAX WG-8 also offers an intelligent zoom function. Depending on the resolution, zoom ranges from 7x at 10 MP up to approx. 40.5x at VGA resolution are available.

Heavy-duty construction for underwater shooting down to a depth of 20 meters, for up to two hours of continuous operation
The solid, airtight housing of the WG-8 is not only waterproof to a depth of 20 metres for up to two hours (equivalent to IPX8 or JIS Class 8), but also shockproof against falls from heights of up to 2.1 metres, dustproof (equivalent to IPX6 or JIS Class 6), cold-resistant down to -10°C and shockproof up to 100kgf (kilogram-force)

4K-resolution movie recording for extended shooting of high-quality movies
The WG-8 can record videos in 4K resolution in H.264 format to capture high-quality film clips (3840 x 2160 pixels, 30 frames per second).

In addition to the conventional Movie SR (Shake Reduction) mode, it also features the new Movie SR+ mode, which creates a shake reduction effect similar to that of a gimbal to ensure high-quality film recordings during more active, fast-paced outdoor activities.

Extensive shooting and editing functions
The PENTAX WG-8 is in no way inferior to a full-blown camera in terms of many of its features. For example, the camera offers various metering methods for autofocus and exposure. Photographers can choose from a wide range of exposure options, such as 18 scene programs to select the most suitable fine-tuning for the subject, including the new depth-of-field composite mode, or give free rein to their creativity with 12 digital filters.

And so that you don't have to spend ages searching through the menu and settings when it comes down to the second, the WG-8 offers two memory locations that can be called up via the function dial.

3.0-inch LCD monitor with wide viewing angle
The WG-8 is equipped with a large, high-resolution 3.0-inch LCD monitor (3:2 ratio and approx. 1,040,000 dots). The AR (anti-reflection) coating applied to the monitor's protective cover minimises annoying glare and reflections, thus ensuring a sharp, clear image on the screen, even in strong sunlight, as is often the case when shooting outdoors. It also features the Outdoor View setting, which allows the user to adjust the brightness of the monitor to the changing light conditions in order to optimise the visibility of the image on the screen.
For precise alignment of the image section, the WG-8 even offers an electronic spirit level for checking the horizontal/vertical tilt of the camera.

Advanced GPS functions and built-in digital compass
The WG-8’s built-in GPS module automatically records position data and travel log data onto captured images and adjusts the built-in clock to local time. This module can be activated with a single action and can receive signals from GLONASS (Global Navigation Satellite System), as well as U.S. GPS satellites. The GPS Lock function lets the user save GPS data onto captured images by using previously acquired position data — highly convenient for shootings inside buildings. GPS data, directional data acquired by the digital compass and UTC (Coordinated Universal Time) can also be imprinted on the lower right corner of an image.

Powerful ring light with six LEDs
The WG-8 offers a particularly close focusing distance of just one centimetre. The WG-8 has six LEDs mounted around the lens to minimise camera and subject blur in macro and close-up shots. The six LEDs can be set individually. This unit also offers selective lighting, where the user can activate only the horizontally or vertically aligned lights to illuminate the subject more three-dimensionally and emphasise its contours. This function is also available for the webcam function.

For blur-free special applications such as this, but also for normal souvenir photos, the camera even offers the option of triggering the camera using the optional remote control. The camera has two receivers for this purpose, one on the front and one on the back.

Webcam function for live-streaming of high-quality, high-resolution images
Simply by switching the WG-8 to the UVC (USB Video Class) mode and connecting it to a computer with a USB cable (included as a standard accessory), it can be used as a web camera for real-time streaming of Full HD-resolution video images at 30 frames per second. When combined with the camera’s macro shooting capability and built-in Ring Light unit, the user can deliver more detailed, creative images than those captured by the computer’s built-in camera during online business meetings or private online communications.
