The WG-3 GPS and WG-3 are due to land in UK stores in March, priced £329.99 and £279.99 respectively.
The WG-3 GPS is compatible with the wireless Qi recharging system.
Also new is an entry-level model called the WG-10, priced £179.99.
It is built to be waterproof down to 10 metres, and shock resistant to a height of 1.5 metres.
All three models include a Digital Microscope mode, designed to be used with built-in LED Macro Lights surrounding the lens, showing a magnified image on screen.
The trio are compatible with wireless, Eye-Fi memory cards.
