Pentax WG-3 and Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-TF1 reviews excite

It’s alright looking over some of the entry-level and high-end DSLR cameras, but what about if you are someone looking for a camera that can take a little bit of beating and still be able to function? If you do a lot of sports and activities and you know a standard camera would not be ideal, then you will want to look for a decent rugged model instead, and the new Pentax WG-3 and Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-TF1 could be perfect.

Pentax has a good pedigree when it comes to tough cameras, so was a shock that they did not offer anything new during CES. However, they have redeemed themselves with the release of the Pentax WG-3, which has seen an array of upgrades when compared to the WG-3. There are two versions of this camera, the 3G and non-3G model.

Looking over the video review above it’s clear to see that the Pentax WG-3 is not as rugged as we would have hoped, but it’s certainly a step in the right direction, but how will it compare to the Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-TF1?

In the second video that we have for you below you not only get to see some of the new features from the DSC-TF1, but also the WX-80 as well, although we are more interested in the former. Sony could be onto a winner here because they have not gone for the obvious market for a tough camera, but have taken a far different approach.

The new TF1 is not only tough but stylish as well, making it an ideal camera to carry when you have a special occasion, such as a hen night, stag party or just a night on the town. Okay, this camera might not be as tough as the Pentax WG-3, but it looks far better and is the most practical as well.

We do fear that the cheap finish could prove an issue, but then how much would you care when you have consumed a huge amount of alcohol?
